Comix Experience is very excited to bring you the masterful team of Ezra Claytan Daniels (Upgrade Soul) and Ben Passmore (Your Black Friend) to celebrate the publication of their newest book, BTTM FDRS (“Bottom Feeders”)
This Afrofuturist graphic novel explores gentrification and cultural appropriation with a clever blend of horror and humor. Once a thriving working-class neighborhood on Chicago’s south side, the “Bottomyards” is now the definition of urban blight. When an aspiring fashion designer and her image-obsessed BFF descend upon the hood in search of cheap rent, they discover something far more seductive... and deadly. Gentrification and body horror collide in this brutal satire.
Please join us to meet these two remarkable talents for this astonishing collaboration.
