How to Draw Afrakan Superheroes

This is a very cool book from Sokoya Comics that Masheka used to use with his cartooning students in Brownsville, Brooklyn. It's not just about superheroes--it's about drawing black faces and hair without falling into sterotypes (or just adding shading to what could otherwise be a drawing of a white character).
