Black Women In Sequence: Re-inking Comics, Grap...

On this edition of Talk of Iowa, Charity Nebbe hosts a discussion about how black women are represented in comics and graphics novels, as well as their influence on the industry, with Deborah Whaley, the author of Black Women in Sequence: Re-inking Comics, Graphic Novels and Anime.

UrbanEntertainment unveiled their fifth original series Sistas 'N The City at the end of October, created by well-known writer/producer Tina Andrews (scripter and producer of the theatrical Why Do Fools Fall In Love, writer/producer of the TV miniseries Sally Hemmings: An American Tragedy and writer of the recently aired CBS miniseries Jaqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis). Andrews' comedic and sensitive Sistas revolves around the lively world of four young, self-sustaining black women living in Chicago and what they go through in their day to day life dealing with men, family, money and jobs. Challenged by the huge numbers of people now logging on to the site, Andrews says of her new Net audience, "I want them to be able to come away with something funny, something sort of 'bad,' something sort of wry, something raunchy on occasion -- and something educational." All five of UrbanEntertainment's current series Netcast loud and clear the budding company's aim to serve up fresh ideas and content we would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.

"For somebody who is very controlling," she laughs, "this was music to my ears!" Working with Flip Your Lid through the design stages was very stimulating as well, especially given Andrews' own artistic endeavors in painting and photography. "I was very specific about what I wanted the girls to look like in terms of skin colors, hair texture, hair length and features because I wanted a representative cross-section of a lot of different types of black women." The animators didn't disappoint her, nailing the final designs down within the first few drafts. The art of animation has been a fulfilling trip for her overall, Andrews declares. "I will tell you that what's the beauty of it is actually designing and creating those characters and seeing them exactly as you envisioned them as opposed to going out and trying to cast someone to come up to that vision. It's like having someone actually paint your fantasy and giving it back to you!" 781b155fdc
