Welcome Back To Big City!
The Return of Brotherman Comics!
“He’s Here and everything’s gonna be alright!”
The lone urban warrior, Brotherman: Dictator of Discipline is still here and remains the icon for justice in the unforgiving and unjust Big City. Equipped with only his intellect, skills, determination, and commitment to cleaning up the home that he reveres, Antonio Valor, Public Attorney seeks to use the court system to break up the evils of society but dons the visage of Brotherman at night to pick up the pieces.
Brotherman: Dictator of Discipline will be back on the shelves in the form of a compilation Trade Paperback. The release is scheduled for early 2008 and will be launched at the first ever Brotherman art exhibition in Atlanta. The trade paperback will consist of all of the back issues that were published by the now defunct Big City Comics.
Brotherman, the oldest and still the most enduring independently created urban hero, was brought to life in the 1990s by illustrator Dawud Anyabwile and writer Guy A. Sims. Brotherman’s stories and images thrilled and continue to inspire generations of kids, teens, comic enthusiasts, and cultural promoters.
Brotherman: Dictator of Discipline is widely recognized as the catalyst for the Black Comic explosion of the 1990’s. As people are looking for an alternative to the slew of cookie-cutter heroes, Brotherman offers within the realm of action and adventure, uplifting and hope filled stories that resonate to the cultural sensibilities of today’s generation. Brotherman offers the broad appeal through the stories and characterizations that reflect honestly the depth of the Black community.
Brotherman made it’s debut at the New York Black expo in April 1990 and has independently sold 750,000 books within a four year span without a major publisher behind it.
More information on the release of the trade and the art exhibition will be released by the end of the year.
