Intending only to take his money and run, he finds more than he bargained for as his former family and friends are enslaved at the hands of Gorm, his ruthless uncle. What follows isnot only a bloody quest to free his people, but also a young man's struggle to discover where he belongs in a rapidly changing world...and what awful sacrifices it will take to make a Prince into a King.

INCOGNEGRO HARDCOVER

Written by Mat Johnson, art by Warren Pleece, cover by Stephen John Philips.

Writer Mat Johnson, winner of the prestigious Hurston-Wright Legacy Award for fiction, constructs a fearless graphic novel that is both a page-turning mystery and a disturbing exploration of race and self-image in America, masterfully illustrated with rich period detail by Wareen Pleece.

In the early 20th Century, when lynchings were commonplace throughout the American South, a few courageous reporters from the North risked their lives to expose these atrocities. They were African-American men who, due to their light skin color, could "pass" among the white folks. They called this dangerous assignment going "incognegro."

Zane Pinchback, a reporter for the New York-based New Holland Herald barely escapes with his life after his latest "incognegro" story goes bad. But when he returns to the sanctuary of Harlem, he's sent to investigate the arrest of his own brother, charged with the brutal murder of a white woman in Mississippi.

With a lynch mob already swarming, Zane must stay "incognegro" long enough to uncover the truth behind the murder in order to save his brother -- and himself. He finds that the answers are buried beneath layers of shifting identities, forbidden passions and secrets that run far deeper than skin color.

This not-so-Jolly old elf has been cursed with the power to see the future of the children he visits -- and for those who will grow up to be killers, he dispenses his own rough justice. Then Kurumi goes head to head with another legendary figure: the Grim Reaper himself!
