Wayne’s Pick of the Week–Coco Gun-Bun #1
Page Count: 32
Our comic, Coco GunBun is unique, not just in the sense that it is a Black comic written by a black author and artist, but in the sense that it is written by a Black female artist. (Apparently a rarity in this field) Coco is a fun comedy book, written in the Blacksploitation style with its roots taken from the strong heroines introduced in that period of American film. Though Coco is a light hearted comedy, the origins of this art form are of a serious nature, and were born out of the Black Power Movement of the Sixty’s and Seventies.

Wayne says “This book is full of fun, funny and absurd anime tropes, one really cool looking heroine. Plus the whole thing is styled like the of like a cartoon you’d like to watch. That’s what I call a Coco-Gunbonus! “
