IT. HAS. BEEN. A. MINUTE. We got EXCELLENCE #6 last October and despite the break, EXCELLENCE #7 jumps right back into it. This book already felt like something special, but as this second arc kicks off, it somehow feels BIGGER than ever, and that’s to say nothing of current events in the world. This title works on so many levels: from the father/son dynamic, to friendship and betrayal, to racial dynamics, to the black experience. It can work on all of those levels for you, or none of them and it’s still a gorgeous looking book with kick ass magic and a story that MOVES.
By the way, shout out Deron on that Eisner nom!
