The exploits you find in my comics

are no more probable

than snow in Sunnyvale.

I'm not as black as you dream.

—from "Luke Cage Tells It Like It Is

Missing You, Metropolis

With humor and the serious collector's delight, Gary Jackson imagines the comic-book worlds of Superman, Batman, and the X-Men alongside the veritable worlds of Kansas, racial isolation, and the gravesides of a sister and a friend.
