Representation and Health 101: SILK Cindy Moon

Oh my stars! It’s time for another Representation and Health 101 installment! It’s only been two weeks, but it’s felt like ages and I’ve been ready to offer up my perspective on the various characters in comics and how they help us heal and cope. Today, I’m going to focus on a new Spider, someone

Representation And Health 101: Retrospectives and Black Reimaginings

With the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular officially over, I decided to intently discuss this past month of articles, covering characters or themes I didn’t and looking to the future of Black representation in comics. Dr. Mara Wood (@MegaMaraMon), Aaron, Comicosity Editor-in-Chief, and Matt, Comicosity Senior Editor, all provided wonderful ideas in how to

Representation and Health 101: Black Creators

It’s sad to say, but it’s the last day of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular. For the twenty-eight days prior, I’ve looked at some astounding Black characters, from Monica Rambeau to Anissa Pierce and Isaiah Bradley to Virgil Hawkins. Today, though, I wanted to take a slightly different spin. For the last day

Representation And Health 101: STORM Ororo Munroe

We have arrived at the penultimate Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! Looking back on this month, it’s been wonderful to analyze these characters and talk about why they’re important and why I love them. Today’s character is vital to the Marvel Universe and comics as a whole, and she is Marvel’s premiere Black woman.

Here we are in one of the last installments of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! Today’s character was one of Marvel’s most prominent Black heroes and has risen to prominence, especially in the past year. He’s been a steadfast friend of Captain America and a mainstay of the Avengers. Whether flying through the

Representation and Health 101: Tiffany from PAPER GIRLS

Welcome to the next Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! As part of this project, I wanted to pick someone who was relatively unknown, but who could provide a thought provoking analysis. With her latest appearance, I knew this character was perfect. In the pages of Paper Girls, she is currently running through an apocalyptic

Representation And Health 101: STATIC SHOCK Virgil Hawkins

I’ve been at the ready to get into this particular installment of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular, and it was one of the more personal ones for me to write. It’s been a great ride discussing Black characters in comics, but today’s focus is near and very dear to my heart. A native of Dakota,

Representation and Health 101: MOON GIRL Lunella Lafayette

It’s another day in the final week of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! Of course you know today is New Comic Book Day, so I wanted to talk about someone who’s ongoing has a new issue out. She’s a very recent addition to the Marvel Universe. Many of us have been excited about

Representation and Health 101: MR. TERRIFIC Michael Holt

It’s time for another Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! For this installment, I want to highlight a character I’ve thought was rather remarkable since I first read about him. He’s a gifted researcher and the third smartest man in the world, his aptitude for technology and science being a major cornerstone of his heroism.

Representation and Health 101: DEE

We are in the home stretch of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! Thanks for hanging with me this month as I highlight some of the many, though still underrepresented, Black characters in comics. Today’s character is a departure from the Big Two. She’s a high priestess with some hesitancies about her “faith.” When
