To Professor William H. Though many fantastic tales have been told through the pages of comic strips and comic books. I would have appreciated some images in the book for this reason, perhaps a page from Green’s Super Soul Comix for a better impression of the art style and execution of representation while reading Foster’s argument that it was positive and not perpetuating racist stereotypes. A few pages of images from Foster’s exhibit would be invaluable aid for readers. I would recommend reading this in combination with Jeffrey A. Brown’s Black Superheroes, Milestone Comics, and Their Fans.

Professor Bill Foster’s exhibit of comic artwork featuring African-American characters ( Looking for a Face Like Mine ) opens this .

Professor Bill Foster’s exhibit of comic artwork featuring African-American characters ( Looking for a Face Like Mine ) opens this Saturday at 8pm at MoCCA. Foster is doing a walk-through for members at 7pm. Looking for a Face Like Mine (showing May 12 to Sept. The exhibit is curated by Professor William H. Foster III, a comics creator, scholar and historian who has devoted much of the past fifteen years to tracing and teaching the history of African Americans as depicted in sequential art media. Blacks were deliberately left out of comics and American society for many years, Foster noted.

More comic book artists continued to set the tone for changing the scene in the city and paving the way for others.

Philadelphia is a special place, can't describe it, but I certainly feel it," said Dr. William H. Foster III, a comic book historian and author of Looking for a Face Like Mine, who is also a founding member of ECBACC. More comic book artists continued to set the tone for changing the scene in the city and paving the way for others. After the Evanses, it was the Sims brothers. Dawud Anyabwile created Brotherman with his brothers Guy and Jason Sims in 1990.

William Adelbert Foster (February 17, 1915 – May 2, 1945) was a United States Marine who received the Medal of Honor for his "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty" during World War.

Superman, Spiderman, and the X-Men. To Professor William H. Foster III, comic books are serious stuff and definitely not just for kids. Though many fantastic tales have been told through the pages of comic strips and comic books, some of the most interesting and least told stories, according to Foster, are about the changing image of Black people in American society. If art imitates life, cartoon and comic art might seem an unusual mirror in which to view society. But to Professor Foster, a long time historian, lecturer, and fan, comics are a source of scholarly research and just plain fun. This book represents a collection of his published essays, articles, and interviews that explore the historical portrayal of people of color in the world of comics. Professor Foster has been an expert commentator for both CNN News and National Public Radio. His exhibit on the "Changing Image of Blacks in Comics" has been displayed at a number of venues across the country.

MisterMax
An excellent resource written by a talented and knowledgeable scholar. I would highly recommend as a book to read to others.

The author does a well documented job of going over in his essays and radio interviews the subject of African-American characters in comic books. He even gives a preliminary primer on earlier attempts by self-publishers (a good list to use to get started for the collector) as well as links to his own still-building website and website to the black comic convention.

Check it out.

Very informative and educational to all comicbook livers.

Looking for a Face Like Mine is more a collection of reading lists than a book. Foster’s goal was to present African-American representation that is rare and hidden in popular entertainment. He does this by writing about material in his exhibit, “The Changing Image of African-Americans in Comics,” and the studies he had done around those materials in articles, reviews, and interviews. Many works have been written on black superheroes, but this is the only that I’ve seen to also discuss trading cards and underground comics, some of which can no longer be found. This makes Foster’s experiences with African-American representation in comic books very unique. Sometimes too unique, in that it cannot be academically discussed by others who have read the source material and can confirm, deny, or elaborate on his statements.
The book is unfortunately short. It is under one hundred pages and gives little more than a paragraph about each image of African Americans discussed. The only two works that do not get this brief treatment is Fast Willie Jackson, an Archie-like comic, and underground comics (or comix, given their x-rated nature) by Richard “Grass” Green. Most of the essays reference one of Green’s many works, but in not entirely clear or specific ways so that the title would have to be read to understand Foster’s statement about its controversial content.
I would have appreciated some images in the book for this reason, perhaps a page from Green’s Super Soul Comix for a better impression of the art style and execution of representation while reading Foster’s argument that it was positive and not perpetuating racist stereotypes.A few pages of images from Foster’s exhibit would be invaluable aid for readers.
I would recommend reading this in combination with Jeffrey A. Brown’s Black Superheroes, Milestone Comics, and Their Fans. Looking for a Face Like Mine chronicles that African-American stories and creators exist, and go beyond only superheroes, while Brown goes in depth on the origins of businesses and characters, stories, successes, and influences on fans that generates a bigger picture.

A little proofreading would've helped, nonetheless this presents a decent overview of the history of African-American in comics. There were titles I didn't even know existed. I look forward to future research on the topic.

Dukinos
This is a one of a kind. Didn't think no one had the heart to write a book. I really didn't think no one black would write it due to the fact most comic books are white developed. It's a gem. Get it while they still in print!

JoJoshura
A very informative, if far too short, piece of comic book history. Professor Foster gives a fine overview of his corner of the comic book world and the book is a great cornerpiece to his exhibits of African-Americans in comics. If nothing else, it's an important piece of the history of comics, as it's a vastly overlooked bit of Americana. Recommended to anyone interested in comics, comic history or African-American Americana.
