  • A timely collection of work about race and immigration in Paris by one of France’s most revered cult comic book artists. Yvan Alagbe is one of the most innovative and provocative artists in the world of comics.

    In the stories gathered in Yellow Negroes and Other Imaginary Creatures–drawn between 1994 and 2011, and never before available in English–he uses stark, endlessly inventive black-and-white brushwork to explore love and race, oppression and escape. It is both an extraordinary experiment in visual storytelling and an essential, deeply personal political statement.

    With unsettling power, the title story depicts the lives of undocumented migrant workers in Paris. Alain, a Beninese immigrant, struggles to protect his family and his white girlfriend, Claire, while engaged in a strange, tragic dance of obsession and repulsion with Mario, a retired French Algerian policeman.

    It is already a classic of alternative comics, and, like the other stories in this collection, becomes more urgent every day.
