THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE ֱ UNIVERSE #1

U.S. Price: $6.99

Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) examines the mythology of the ֱ Universe in this compelling new miniseries that reframes iconic moments of ֱ history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of ֱ Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.

This unique new series presents its story as prose by Ridley married with beautifully realized color illustrations from a selection of exciting illustrators and comics artists. Alex Dos Diaz provides art for #1, which follows the story of Jefferson Pierce, the man who will one day become Black Lightning, as he makes his way from being a young track star to a teacher and, ultimately, to his role as a hero.

Future issues focus on characters such as Karen and Mal Duncan, Tatsu Yamashiro and Renee Montoya.

Extensively researched and masterfully executed, THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE ֱ UNIVERSE promises to be an experience unlike any other. You may think you know the history of the ֱ Universe…but the truth is far more complex. THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE ֱ UNIVERSE isn’t about saving the world—it’s about having the strength to simply be who you are.
