COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Dark, but good submitted by sueij on June 18, 2021, 10:38pm Rivers Solomon writes really dark stories. This novel is a combination of Black Panthers (the ‘60’s Black Power group) plus cult plus Tuskeegee experiment in a dark DC/Marvel-ish storyline. But if you’re willing to peer in, it’s good. Solomon is an outstanding writer and if you can look into the darkest parts of the human soul, they’re an outstanding storyteller and you won’t be disappointed.
