Snow Daze Comic, Illustrated by Marcus Kwame Anderson, Written by Leonardo Faierman
"Snow Daze is a comic book created by writer, Leonardo Faierman and artist, Marcus Kwame Anderson. Loosely based on Leo’s experiences shoveling snow as a teen in Queens NY, the story concerns enterprising teens of color in a strange suburban land, navigating the bridge between childhood and adulthood. Tales of race and class struggles, family, friendship, conflict, humor and more unfold against the snowy mid-nineties backdrop of the town of Oxenvale, a suburb which is quickly becoming more diverse.
Part noir-tale, part silly adolescence, and part coming of age story, Snow Daze is a lavishly illustrated B&W urban pulp-fiction unlike anything else on the shelf. You can also buy print and digital versions. Check out preview pages below and read more at www.snowdazecomic.com!"
