36 Pages / Issue #1 / Fall 2019
The inaugural issue of a gripping tale where dreams intersect with reality in the South Side of Chicago neighborhood, Back of the Yards. That’s where we first meet our hero (or anti-hero?), Andre Davis, a curious, charismatic young man dealing with the daily grind of his neighborhood before he encounters an unexpected supernatural force.
It also in the Back of the Yards where we will meet young Russell and his cousin Draymond, two cousins that are as close as brothers and share a love of manga and video games as a way of escaping their own day-to-day realities. And last but certainly not least, we will become first acquainted with Tamia, a powerful young woman in search of her own voice after a tumultuous summer.
And as each of these teens embark on their own unique journeys, we are all left to wonder, just as they, was it all just a dream? And if so, what does it all mean?
Come begin the journey with us in this first issue of the Back of the Yards comic series! Stories from this new comic series are based on original collaborations with urban youth, with 20% of all proceeds from sales going to the Made Scholarship Fund, where you can help make the actual dreams of deserving urban youth become reality!
