Fort Greene Graphic Novel Book Group discusses Yellow Negro and Other Imaginary Creatures
Led by Greenlight bookseller Nicholas, our new graphic novel book group in Fort Greene reads and discusses comics and graphic novels in a variety of genres. For April, the group discusses Yellow Negro and Other Imaginary Creatures by Yvan Alagbé. In the stories gathered in Yellow Negroes and Other Imaginary Creatures—drawn between 1994 and 2011—he uses stark, endlessly inventive black-and-white brushwork to explore love and race, oppression and escape. It is both an extraordinary experiment in visual storytelling and an essential, deeply personal political statement. “With poetic, elliptical text and stark, impressionistic black-and-white art, French cartoonist Alagbé reveals the toxic legacy of European colonialism upon individuals and families.” -Library Journal.
