Ok. I quit.

yyyup

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.

FIRST SECOND TO PUBLISH SIX VOLUMES OF HIT FRENCH MARTIAL ARTS FANTASY SERIES, ‘LAST MAN’

By Zainab Akhtar

Speculation about publishers First Second acquiring the rights to a book by French comics superstar, Bastien Vivèsfirst began swirling in March, and while I’d like to say I’m above such speculation, when it concerns my favourite authors, I’m just as readily excitable as anyone else. July saw things take a more solid shape, as a listing for the first volume of Last Man, Vivès’ co-authored series with Balak and Michael Sanlaville, showed up on various book retail sites, with a projected release date of March 2015. Happy news, but I’m here to bring you even better: not only are First Second translating Last Man, they’ve bought the rights to the first six volumes of the series, and will be publishing three books each year for the next two years.

When profiling Vivès earlier in the year, I put forward Last Man as the series that would be most likely to have wide appeal and attract a larger audience: already a huge hit in France, it’s inspired by gaming and Japanese comics, specifically shounen manga, incorporating a rich fantasy adventure setting with character-drive storytelling and plenty of action sequences.
