Colorful Graphics in Black and White

Two new graphic novels that deal with race.

The first is Incognegro by Mat Johnson about a young man in the 1930’s who can pass for white, which he does in order to battle white supremacy.  Excellent review with SFGate.

The second is called Shortcomings by Adrian Tomine.  His story is about an Asian male whose Asian girlfriend accuses him of being attracted to white women.  Hear the NPR interview here.
