This week on Creannotators, I talk with Ken Quattro about his book Invisible Men: The Trailblazing Black Artists of Comic Books. We discuss the history of black comic book artists in the Golden Age, Ken’s research into these missing histories, and what comes next in the ongoing project.
On Comic Book Herald’s ‘Creannotators’ I’ll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs, graphic novels or series, looking for their insights on the inspirations behind the work and ideas or hidden material readers may have missed. Creannotators is an audio annotative guide to enjoying the intricacies and thinking in the art. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the comics!
