From http://schulzlibrary.wordpress.com/2009/08/24/congrats-matt-baker/ :

"Although Matt Baker’s comics career was cut tragically short (reportedly due to heart failure) he made a significant impact on the medium between 1944 and 1959. Baker was one of the first known African-American cartoonists, and arguably one of the most prominent in his day..."

jun_i8:02am: Manga High
From Harvard Education Press: Manga High - Literacy, Identity, and Coming of Age in an Urban High School
"Since 2004, students at Martin Luther King, Jr., High School in Manhattan have been creating manga—Japanese comic books. They write the stories, design the characters, and publish their works in print and on the Internet. These students—African-American and Latino teenagers—are more than interested in the art and medium of manga. They have become completely engrossed in Japanese language, culture, and society.

Based on a four-year study, Manga High explores the convergence of literacy, creativity, social development, and personal identity in one of New York City’s largest high schools..."
The project is also mentioned on the Schulz Library blog.

zenlari1:02am: Hello!
Hi,
There of some of you that may know me already but there are some that don't! My name is Jordan and I currently live in Portland, Oregon and I'm starting to get my stuff together for art school to work in the comics field. So that's it for introductions!

I was wondering is anyone here reading New Warriors by Marvel? It's one of the most diverse, non-mutant, doesn't have a Wolverine clone in sight, comic I've seen! It's amazingly drawn and the story-arcs seem to be along the lines of "sticking it to the man as much as possible."

If not New Warriors, what books are people reading right now?
