I was almost embarrassed to include this for Nerdcore’s Black History Month, but whaddya know? Black men showing dicks in comic books are hard to come by.

Darkness Visible was an outlier and Cutting Edge only has one tiny panel.

I was tempted to post Inner City Romance by Guy Colwell (Fantagraphics Books), but thought eh, there’s just too much (straight and gay) sex in it that it borderlines on being actual porn.

So, I had to resort to Godhead by Ho Che Anderson (also published by Fantagraphics).

The blurb:

A corporation invents a device that can talk to God in this graphic novel thriller. Godhead ricochets from the streets of a working-class African American community to the glimmering halls of corporate America to a mobile scientific laboratory located in the Pacific Ocean. A sprawling contemporary saga with a science-fiction edge, Godhead explores a collision course between science and religion when a corporation creates a device that can talk to God. Is this humanity’s salvation or the equivalent of a Doomsday machine? Godhead is Ho Che Anderson’s most conceptually and thematically ambitious graphic novel to date, his first in over ten years. Visually, he employs a variety of drawing techniques from tonal images to stark black-and-white to full color painting in order to convey a thriller that ranges from intimate domestic drama to globalist corporate intrigue.

And, umm… We don’t get to see the Black guy’s full dick. But I still hope you’ll like this presentation.

If you’re a Black comic book artist or a writer reading this post: WE NEED MORE BLACK MEN SHOWING OFF THEIR COCKS IN COMICS AND CARTOONS.

Make it so.

Next week’s Nerdcore post will have an abundance of naked Black men. I promise.
