Comments Graphic Classics, Volume 22: African-American Classics

  1. This is a good book to introduce yourself to African American authors of the early 20th century The art is pretty good, but it didn t always marry perfectly with the stories.


  2. Reason for Reading I absolutely love this series of books and read each new one that comes out I hope to get around to reading of their backlist this year.Usually when I read one of these collections of themed books I am familiar with a majority of the works but this time everything was new for me I do read Black authors but they are contemporary ones such as Toni Morrison, making this an introduction for me to these early Black authors I should say I was familiar with one writer and that is th [...]




  3. This collection of graphic retellings of classic African American literature was a little hit or miss for me The art work and story style vary widely from story to story and some were less enjoyable than others There are a few well known stories and several that I ve never seen before I enjoyed the majority of the short stories and the variety of subject collected.


  4. Amazing to think that these independently illustrated African American short stories were written in the late 19th and early 20th century The writing is brave, edgy and culturally enriching.


  5. This was enjoyable, with selected poems and stories from African American writers ranging from tragedy, drama, hope, and humour adapted by current writers and illustrators such as Kyle Baker, Lance Tooks, Mat Johnson and Christopher Priest.


  6. The Reward Beautiful.Two Americans OK art, but a good, touching story.On Being Crazy Nice art, and made me want to read the whole story.The Negro Like the poem and like the art, but they don t quite go together.Danse Africaine Gorgeous.A Carnival Jangle I don t like the art, and I feel like too many parts of the story were cut out.The Castaways Love it, but could ve worked better as several panels.America Great poem and great art.Lawing and Jawing Very nice art, but I don t like the story, parti [...]


  7. Graphic Classics is known for publishing some truly great graphic novels, adapting and collecting graphic tales of works from such renowned authors as Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, Jack London, Mark Twain, H G Wells and H P Lovecraft to name a number of them notice a certain characteristic in common with all these white men In their latest volume, number twenty two, they have published one of their most important yet African American classics.This illuminating collection features original wo [...]


  8. While some of the authors were names I recognized, the rest were unfamiliar to me, pointing out one of the two main points of value to this graphic novel The first is that it is a way to introduce people to the writings of the well known African American writers at the earliest point when it began to be a genre The writings are superb and their legacy needs to be maintained for their historical and cultural value.The second point is that the work of the lesser known writers needs to be elevated [...]


  9. This is a collection of classics that were adapted to graphic stories The adaptions have been simplified and detailed graphics have been added to provide emphasis I think this is a way to introduce young people as they are short enough to capture their attention and make them want I recommend this book short graphic novellas poems to everyone It s an experience that young and old can appreciate.


  10. This book can be approached in two ways as an introduction to early black writers, well known and less so or as a visual interpretation of their works, giving them a vibrancy that may intrigue readers to pursue from these writers The artists have impressive cred having worked for groups such as Marvel, DC Comics, various popular animation series and MTV, and their varying styles are compelling to behold.


  11. wow wow wow.6 star bookmost of these stories i didn t know, now i ve got a lot of authors to chase down three favorites on being crazy by w.e.b dubois and illoed by kyle baker, the goophered grapevine by charles chesnutt and buyers of dreams by ethel m caution and beautifully illoed by leilani hickersont a page is wasted and every page is art.


  12. Not all of these stories were gems, but I enjoyed them for the most part Some of these stories were rather grim for children, but I think high school students should be fine The illustrations across the board were great and I think this book would be a good way to expose teenagers to black literature


  13. Stories and poems that have been illustrated and some have been adapted all from African Americans I liked of the poems than the stories but an interesting read There is also information on the writers, adapters and illustrators at the end.


  14. Poetry, humor, social commentary and advocacy all find a place in this inventive graphic novel I must say, however, that the moral of Buyers of Dreams made me squirm with discomfort, even if it was written in 1921.


  15. Solid collection, my fave is the WEB DuBois story The first Zora Neale Hurston is a close second There were only two stories I couldn t get with, and it was honestly because I didn t like the art enough.


  16. Great collection of some very surprising stories I loved the variety in styles Was especially taken by the crafty comics adaptations done by our friend Alex Simmons Well done


  17. Great graphic adaptations of the works of many great, early African American writers Adapted, edited, and illustrated by African American writers and artists.



  18. Great writers, great illustrators, entertaining presentation Kudos highly recommended for readers either familiar or unfamiliar with black literature.




  19. the artwork most of the stories were eh not good, perpetuates stereotypes a bit, none of the stories had an impact, emotionally didn t catch me
