4 Pages | 16 Bars: A Visual Mixtape

 

The Black Age of Comics. This is the term coined in 1992. With the emergence of Milestone Media, Brotheman, Tribe and other entities in the early nineties, the presence of the African American in sequential art could not be denied. 20 years later, the book Black Comix became the link that brought the African American comic book community together.

PRESENTS THE UNION

Written by: Jiba Molei Anderson and Tyrell White

Illustrated by: Jiba Molei Anderson and others

 

From the depths of space spawned a creature from Oblivion’s void. Assuming physical form and claiming the name Chronox, he leads a campaign to becoming the dominant force of existence. He has built an army of malice, greed and terror, tearing through dimensions, hell-bent on acquiring absolute power. 

 

Looking on, The Horsemen of Gaia can not sit idly by and watch as the The Blaxis walks towards the path of destruction. However, they can not stop this threat alone. They need allies. And so, Eshu, Navigator of the Crossroads travels the 256 paths to deliver a message to any who will listen: "Join us in this fight to save the universe or your reality will soon come to an end..."

"Become a member of The Union.”
