Example text

Although the early 1990s was a period of incredible growth for the comic book industry with over twelve hundred individual titles being released every month, it was also a time when many lower-profile books could be lost in the crowd. Don Thompson, coeditor of the weekly trade paper Comics Buyer’s Guide, has noted, concerning minority-based comics, ‘‘There have been some independent publishers, but they aren’t reaching a real wide audience. This [Milestone] is the first independent company to get any major financing.

Used with permission. A Milestone Development 19 who temporarily replaces Hal Jordan as Green Lantern and who, by the mid1980s in issue ࠻182, becomes the new Green Lantern (sometimes referred to by fans as the Black Lantern) when the original hero decides to resign. The impetus of social relevance in the comic books of the 1970s is apparent in the short-lived explosion of minority heroes. In the early 1970s, with the loosening of the Comics Code and the industry’s subsequent search for appropriate socially relevant topics, comics turned, as the industry had so often done before, to other media for inspiration and found it in the era’s popular blaxploitation movies.

But instead of producing straight blaxploitation heroes, the comics publishers melded the superficial conventions of the film genre with the characters they knew best, the superheroes. The comic book versions may have looked and talked like John Shaft, but they were given fancy costumes and superpowers. The comic book blaxploitation heroes were also watered down for a younger audience so that such prominent film conventions as the hero’s sexual prowess were left out of the stories. The ingredients that the comics did retain were usually much more in line with the politics of Shaft than they were with Sweet Sweetback or any of the other films that took professional criminals as their heroes.
