Your Black Friend and Other Strangers
Your Black Friend and Other Strangers | Ben Passmore
3 posts | 5 read | 1 to read
Your Black Friend and Other Strangers is a collection of culturally charged comics by cartoonist Ben Passmore, including the Eisner Award nominated and Ignatz Award-winning "Your Black Friend," named one of NPR's 100 favorite comics of all time in 2017. Passmore masterfully tackles comics about race, gentrification, the prison system, online dating, gross punks, bad street art, kung fu movie references, beating up God, and lots of other grown-up stuff with refreshing doses of humor and lived relatability. The comics in this 112-page collection include works previously published by The Nib, VICE, and the As You Were anthology, along with brand new and unreleased material. These comics are essential, humorous, and accessible, told through Passmore's surreal lens in the vibrant full-color hues of New Orleans.

75% awesome content. 25% I have no idea what‘s going on. Overall, a great collection of comics tackling important issues of race, racism, and identity.

I tried to take pictures of some of the panels that stood out to me but they were irregular sizes and text heavy so they didn‘t fit the Litsy format. You‘ll just have to check them out for yourself. 😉

This is a collection. I understood about half of the stories in the collection, and I liked about half of those. The ones I liked, I really liked. Read Harder Challenge: #8 - a comic written or illustrated by a person of color.
.
This is one of my favorite panels.
