Although I get to talk to indie comic creators every week, It’s been a while since I’ve actually reviewed a comic here and I’ve decided to share some of what I’ve been reading. I’m starting 2019 off with an all-ages comic that I think is a wonderful read and is something that you can add to the list of Magical Books for Black Girls. The Invention of E. J. Whitaker by Shawnee and Shawnelle Gibbs. The Gibbs sisters first came to my attention in 2016 when they had a kickstarter for this comic, and since then they’ve worked on a ton of projects with everyone from BET and MTV to Lifetime and the Food Network. But it was this little story about a young Southern black girl inventor in the midst of the Industrial Age that caught my interest.
