The Black Panther Party: A Graphic Novel History

“[an] ambitious and informative graphic history, crisply illustrated by Marcus Kwame Anderson.”

-The New York Times


“Writer David F. Walker’s narrative eye takes in both the panoramic historical perspective and the immediate, intimate incident; artist Marcus Kwame Anderson puts you in the midst of moments half-a-century ago that feel utterly familiar while seeming like a kind of social-realist visual scripture that speaks from a core of experience shared every day.




I’m happy to announce that The Black Panther Party: A Graphic Novel History, written by David F. Walker, illustrated by yours truly, and published by Ten Speed Press, is available now. You can order it from most places where books are sold.

Dive into the history of an often misunderstood party that worked to uplift the Black community through social programs that met their educational, healthcare, and food needs, while standing up to police brutality.

David and I poured our hearts and souls into this book, and we hope that you’ll join us for this bold and fascinating graphic novel history of the revolutionary Black Panther Party.

All Power to all the people.

Artist Kwame Anderson balances text and images skillfully, and even the wordiest sections feel spacious, while he lends cinematic visual pacing to the many heated interactions between activists and police.”
