John Jennings Conversations SC (2020 UPoM) comic books
Edited by Donna-lyn Washington. Art by John Jennings.
John Jennings is perhaps best known for his collaboration with Damian Duffy on the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler's Kindred. Jennings is also a graphic designer and comic book scholar who, throughout his career, has conducted several interviews that shed light on the importance of Black Speculative narratives. These interviews explore folklore, systemic racism, his Mississippi roots, and the phrase Jennings cocreated, the Ethnogothic. Jennings discusses the necessity for black heroes, not just for the sake of diversity, but for inclusiveness.
