Celebrating new ideas is all Super. Black. is about. Bitter Root is one of those fantastic ideas. The comic’s amazingly executed story is enhanced by the book’s vibrant, kinetic art style. Created by David F. Walker, Chuck Brown, and Sanford Greene, Bitter Root follows the Sangerye family as they cleanse the souls of the hate-filled jinoo.
The topics of racism and hate permeate the comics and are the main motivators for the monsters of the books. These are the ugly topics we can’t seem to overcome in our society, so it’s cathartic to read how unnecessary hate actually transforms people into monsters.
Bitter Root is an action-packed period piece worth picking up, reading through, and following. Super. Black. awards Bitter Root the Best of 2020: Black Storytelling Award!
