Incognegro

Mat Johnson. Incognegro.  New York, NY: Veritgo Comics, February 6th, 2008. 136 pp.

May there be more graphic novel like this.  Good story, illustrations that’s easy on the eyes, suspenseful with humor that carries the readers along through the dark historical mystery.  The story is situated during a time in American history in which lynching was done in the South.  The graphic novels tells the story of an African American news reporter who is Black but looks white.  He goes down to the South to report on the racist lynching that takes place for his Harlem based newspaper.  The story is loosely based upon real NAACP undercover investigator which made the story even more interesting.  The story has pretty good twists and turns which makes this a great mystery novel.  I enjoyed it and recommend it.

Purchase: Amazon
