Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, and Khary Randolph have raised over $45,000 on Kickstarter. These four comic book industry veterans plan to create a graphic novel entitled Black.

The story features a world where only black people possess super powers. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.

Here’s more from the Kickstarter page: “After miraculously surviving being gunned down by police, a young man learns that he is part of the biggest lie in history. Now he must decide whether it’s safer to keep it a secret or if the truth will set him free.”
