Your Black Friend, Now An Animated Short Film
Jan 22, 2018
Ben Passmore's critically acclaimed Your Black Friend indie comic book premieres today as a 3-minute animation courtesy of Silver Sprocket and Doggo Studios, with narration by Passmore himself.
Addressing topics of racism, identity, and alienation, the comic is a necessary contribution to the dialogue around race in the United States.
The print version of the comic won numerous awards in 2017 including the Ignatz, Dinky, and Broken Frontier, as well as an Eisner Award nomination, and coveted spot on NPR’s 100 Favorite Graphic Novels list.
The video precedes the release of Your Black Friend and Other Strangers (DEC171793), a 120 page hardcover collection of Passmore's comics previously published by VICE, The Nib, and a variety of independent outlets, to be released in March of 2018 by politically charged indie comics publisher and art-crew Silver Sprocket.
