A fantastic collection of essays that will help you better understand the complicated history of race and comics as well as get a better sense of what people are doing today. The book is scholarly, that's for sure, which means it's less of a breeze to read than say Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics" but readers who are willing to put in the work will undoubtably be rewarded with, as the books introduction by Derek Parker Royal states, an enlarged understanding of what multicultural comics are, their importance and their scope.

It's just a bunch of dumb essays.
