Ben Passmore's necessary contribution to the dialogue around race in the United States, Your Black Friend is a letter from your black friend to you about race, racism, friendship and alienation.

On the heels of viral online success with 500,000+ views, the revised print edition of the Your Black Friend comic is in gorgeous full color on fancy matte paper stock.

Inspired by Frantz Fanon's White Skin, Black Masks, Your Black Friend is just as direct, immediate, and necessary as Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me and Claudia Rankine's Citizen.

Known for his politically charged science fiction comics, enthusiastic fans of Passmore's work include Brandon Graham (Island, Image Comics), Carolyn Nowak (Lumberjanes) and Josh Simmons (Fantagraphics).

About the Author

If Mœbius were an anarcho nihilist, focusing his surreal lense towards race and regret, sex and society, anxiety and Aquaman references, you'd get Ben Passmore.

A black comics artist from New Orleans, Passmore's work is rooted in his experiences and observations from punk rock and direct-action activism. The apocalyptic wasteland of post-Katrina New Orleans comes to life in fantastic sci-fi wrapping complex ideas in sex jokes and exploding uncomfortable truths through sophisticated analogy.
