IDW and Yoe Books Announce THE UNTOLD HISTORY OF BLACK COMIC BOOKS

A Groundbreaking Collection Coming This February

IDW and Yoe Books are proud to announce The Untold History of Black Comic Books, brought to you by Professor William H. Foster III, a leading authority on the history of Black cartoonists and comics, and fellow comic book historian Craig Yoe.

This groundbreaking collection in both scope and detail, traces the changing image of African-Americans in comic books from the 1940s right up to the present day. Perfect for fans and comic scholars alike, it includes nearly 200 pages of rarely seen comic book stories never reprinted before. There has never been a book with this incredible and fascinating cultural scope and is truly not to be missed.

“This book is important to me on several levels,” said Professor Foster. “It is not just the culmination of years of research. It is the latest chapter in my efforts to illuminate the forgotten corners of comic book history. Despite the fact that I have been a fan, collector, and historian for comics for many years, I still meet people in and out of the comic industry who say they have never seen, or heard of Black comic books. Incidents like that used to depress me. Nowadays I just smile and say, ‘Well, let me tell you a story…’”

The Untold History of Black Comic Books is a 9” x 12” full-color hardcover slated for release February 2015 ($39.99 – DEC140581 – ISBN: 978-1-63140-290-6).
