The Blackest Superhero Story That Marvel Comics Ever Published

By Evan Narcisse

The Crew #5 is a comic that gave me life. It’s a remix of history, a superhero genre work that seethes with spiritual energy. Reading it feels like, no lie, going to church.

This is one of the blackest things that Marvel Comics has ever put out into the world. It’s not just super-black because of the cast and the story it tells. It’s super-black because of how it uses blackness to tell its story, peeling back layers of erased and redacted history to generate a fuller portrait of black humanity in the Marvel Universe.
