Oh man, one of the books from Scout Comics I was the most excited to check out this year was Black Cotton. A world where the racial dynamics of black and white are reversed. I never thought I would be excited to read a book where protestors don signs that say White Lives Matter, but it works. This smash book from Brian Hawkins, Patrick Foreman and Marco Perugini got the amazing announcement tonight from Scout Comics that it's back for a reprint!!!!!
In a press release from Scout Comics, Scout's President James Haick says "We are so proud that the critically acclaimed Black Cotton #1 is going back to print. It's such a fantastic series and we want to be sure to get this first issue in our fans hands before the second issue comes out in May. Request it now at you local comic shop using Diamond order code JAN218878!"
This is a book you definitely shouldn't sleep on as it will not only put forth an interesting conversation on race (much like the music video for T.I.'s Warzone) but there are also some intersectional undertones on sex and class in addition to the seeds being planted for some good-old family drama. You better believe I'm reaching out to my shop to pick up a copy of the second printing!!!!!
