Other Stuff





A new award for 'Excellence in Graphic Literature' announced it's nominees, with a special focus on diversity.











Rahawa Haile wrote an excellent essay on Black Panther and its relation to both real African countries, and to Black American identity.

I found this essay thanks to Jen @ Reading the End, who writes excellent weekly link wrap-ups of interesting bits 'n' bobs.

(Essay contains spoilers.)




POW! comics bubble




And speaking of Black Panther, Marvel have announced, in a welcome break to their recent anti-diversity, Black-Panther-cancelling, ways, a new 3-part series focusing on the Dora Milaje.

The Dora Milaje, the female warriors of Wakanda, will be teaming up with Peter Parker in Wakanda Forever: The Amazing Spider-Man for a series authored by Nnedi Okorafor.












And that's it for this week!

Comics Wrap-Up will be on break next week, & will be back on April 5th!
