If you are a fan of Afrofuturism, Historical fiction and/or Mecha Anime, this is definitely a series to checkout.
Before getting into the Tuskegee Heirs series itself, it’s very important to note that the creators of this series weren’t backed by some major Comic Book industry juggernaut (see what I did there?!) like Marvel or DC Comics. They did it all on their own! Well, with the help of everyone that gave to their Kickstarter campaign. That in and of itself, in a world where it’s hard for Indie Comic book creators to survive and thrive, should be celebrated.
As for the content itself, I really enjoyed this Volume 1 Series. The story is fun and compelling, and the illustration work is beyond phenomenal. If you familiar with the history of the Tuskegee Airman, then you definitely understand why the setting of this comic book series and the premise is not only intriguing and captivating, but powerful.
To the best of my knowledge, there are only 3 publicahtions in the series so far and so I definitely found myself yearning for more. Not sure when or if there are more releases in the works, but regardless of my curiosity to see how these characters and their story continues to develop, I highly recommend picking up these comic books, either for your kids, or yourself if you’re a comic book fan or just curious about the comic book genre.
