February is a month filled with History and Love and we’re doing our part at FairSquare Comics. Before we talk about new releases, let’s remind everyone that February is Black History Month and that our commitment to highlight African American and black creators is in our Dna.
We currently have two graphic novels, featuring black creators and stories, that will be available in February 2023: the Noir Is the New Black anthology and the new Noir Is the New Black Presents: Watson & Holmes volume.
This being said, let’s look at our new titles:
