Month of African-American Comics – Not So Super #1

All this month I’ll be reviewing different comic books by African-American creators, based on submissions from the actual creators of the comic books themselves. A quick note – since this month is so relatively short, I’ll be featuring an extra comic every week, for a total of 32 comics spotlighted! Here is a list of all the comics spotlighted so far!

Today we take a look at Jacques Nyemb’s Not So Super #1, drawn by Joe Hunter. Check out the great Superman: Secret Identity homage cover it has…

The gist of the comic is that we meet a young single man named Dan who is living a normal enough life as an IT professional for a large company…

However, over the course of this first issue, he slowly develops super powers.

As you can see from above, Hunter’s art is charming and expressive and works perfectly for the approach that Nyemb is going for with the story.

Nyemb develops our protagonist very well, giving us an opportunity to fully understand and appreciate the character by the time that he begins to develop super powers.

The issue ends with the reader’s interest suitably piqued – I am very interested in seeing what happens next for our hero.

You can buy the issue here (it is one of those “suggested payment” type of sites).

I may have to check this out.

I like this.

Very cool and stylistic.

Thanks guys for the kind words! I’m fortunate to work with some great artists to give life to my stories. I hope you check them out!

this looks pretty sweet

[...] If you’re into all-ages that actually means all-ages as far as comics go, Not So Super is for you.  From the hard-working Jacques Nyemb and Joe Hunter comes a book about an IT dude developing superpowers. Fun, non-compromising sincerity awaits your eyes! Hat tip CBR [...]

I picked this up a couple days, ago. I really look forward, to more issues. Love the art, writing is on point, and it just feels right. Instant fan, over here.
