The very first Independent Black Super hero comic book that I remember reading was Brotherman: Dictator of Discipline . I've just recently dusted off my original issues to reread them. The first time I read them I remember being amazed that Black people were writing their own comics but actually getting them published. Written and created by Dawud Anyabwile and Guy A. Sims, and according to the website, "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"
Lucky for us, Brotherman is poised to make a comeback. Unfortunately I can find no date as to when that will actually happen but fear not. The collected issues are available for sale on the website and you can download a digital copy of the very first issue of Brotherman: Dictator of Discipline for free. Now who wouldn't want a free comic book? It's like owning a piece of history.
