Summary
  • "Bass Reeves : Tales of the Talented Tenth tells the story of Bass Reeves, an escaped slave who became one of the most successful lawmen of the Old West and the rumored inspiration for The Lone Ranger. Volume I chronicles his life from winning shooting matches in early childhood to traveling with his master, living with Native Americans in Indian Territory, and finally becoming a Deputy US Marshal. The Tales of the Talented Tenth series will feature stories about Black history in action. Joel Christian Gill is the chairman, CEO, president, director of development, majority and minority stock holder, manager, co-manager, regional manager, assistant to the regional manager, receptionist, senior Black correspondent, and janitor of Strange Fruit Comics. In his spare time he is the chair of foundations at the New Hampshire Institute of Art and member of The Boston Comics Roundtable"--
  • "This is the first volume of a new series of graphic novels featuring notable and iconic African Americans. Each volume will focus on the individual, and will also include a discussion of the larger community to which the individual belonged and the historical relevance of the individual"--
