In Dawolu Jabari Anderson own words on his art:
Really, I do think this is an idea worth exploring further, whether in comic book format, or even on screen, tackled straight-on, or as satire. While I’m sure they’ll draw controversy, think of it as a way of turning these various “types” that continue to haunt us, completely on their heads.
