Webcomics really is the way to go! #BlackComicsMonth has featured several webcomics by black comic creators and they really are nothing short of amazing. J.N. Monk’s StarHammer is another webcomic which exceeds expectations. Monk is a black comic creator from NW Ohio who launched StarHammer in October. StarHammer exists as an entry comic for people (but especially kids) who would love an entry point into superheroes but don’t want to be bogged down by the years of history and continuity that comes with almost any other comic of the sort.
Let’s check out a preview of StarHammer below:
StarHammer also features diverse representation of all types. The leads include people of East Asian, Black and mixed ancestry.
Evelyn “Evey” Li: An overacheiving yet aimless teen, Evey is granted a direction in life after unwittingly inheriting the mantle of a disgraced superheroine.
Caroline Isabelle “Izzy” Baldwin: Evey’s best and closest friend. Thanks to her encylopedic knowledge of advie and superhero history, Izzy has deemed it necessary to appoint herself as her Evey’s manager/adviser/sidekick.
Danae Thompson: As the original StarHammer and aforementioned disgraced superheroine, Danae has been ordered by the Bureau to train Evey in her duties as LEC’s newest hero.
