I pushed too much not just you but myself. Time, time will show the real me. These 2 days I've been going at it hard not stopping even when I'm tired..I'm taking today to rest, finally going back to my books instead of my games. Back to things that are quiet. #books#blacklibrary#horusheresy#minilibrary
🤸🏾♂️🙌🏾🖤✨Inner Black grrl comic book nerd Saturday morning squealing flipping through - BLACK WOMEN IN SEQUENCE:RE-INKING COMICS, GRAPHIC NOVELS AND ANIME ✨✨✨✨ This is a beautifully crafted book that explores the significance and representation of Black women in a very specific art form. 👌🏾👌🏾 - described in its intro as extending “pivotal moments and interventions in comic book studies by providing a theoretical, historical, and cultural analysis of Black women in sequential art“
Deborah goes on to say, “I present counter-visions and problematic aspects of Black women in comic art to address their representations in mainstream comics, and to argue specifically about the complicated & contradictory meanings that one may cull from sequential art.“ The book goes beyond ideas of inclusion and diversity, it takes readers on a historical journey through a quirky subculture, (one of my faves) which includes graphic novels, video games, comic books, manga, it offers a deep and critical perspective on race, gender and sexuality as it pertains/relates to women and girl characters of African descent in comics. Brilliant writer and professor Deborah Elizabeth Whaley has given us a lovely and detailed investigation into this world, 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 extremely grateful to the amazing @nyashajunior who gifted this perfect book to the library. 💕💙💜
Cover art is of Friday Foster, the first Black comic strip character to appear in a mainstream newspaper circa 1972. Bless up!! 🖤💙💜 #blackwomanbibliophile#booklove#blackbooksmatter#bookstagram#saturdaymorningreading#comicbooks#fridayfoster#blacklibrarian#blacklibrary#freeblackwomenslibrary
Here’s my Black Library, all the audio books I’ve listened to in order. I’ve just finished the Ravenor series and I’m currently on Magos. B/W ones I own and are on my waiting list. Anyone else a huge fan of their audio books? My favourite is my first, The Carrion Throne. A fantastic story. Is there anything you’d recommend not on my list?
