Incognegro: Renaissance collects Incognegro: Renaissance #1–#5. A page-turning thriller of racial divide, Incognegro: Renaissance explores segregation, secrets, and self-image as our race-bending protagonist penetrates a world where he feels stranger than ever before.

When a black writer is found dead at a scandalous interracial party in 1920s’ New York, Harlem’s cub reporter Zane Pinchback is the only one determined to solve the murder. Zane must go “Incognegro” for the first time, using his light appearance to pass as a white man to find the true killer, in this prequel miniseries to the critically acclaimed Vertigo graphic novel, available in a special 10th Anniversary Edition.

With a cryptic manuscript as his only clue and a mysterious and beautiful woman as the murder’s only witness, Zane finds himself on the hunt through the dark and dangerous streets of “roaring twenties” Harlem in search for justice. In a time when looks could kill . . . Zane’s skin is the only thing keeping him alive.

Praise for Incognegro: Renaissance:

“In a day and age when too many creators feel like interchangeable cogs in a corporate machine and too many comics feel like they are mass produced to appeal to the majority of hypothetical readers a book like Incognegro: Renaissance is refreshing because it is unique. This is a book that only Mat Johnson and Warren Pleece could have made and one of the best things I’ve read this year in any format.”
Graphic Policy

“If you like noir, mystery, or just great comics,
you’d be remiss to skip Incognegro: Renaissance.”
Outright Geekery

“The first issue of Incognegro: Renaissance is packed with mystery and intrigue but what makes it such a gripping read is its uncompromising look at the racial divide that continues to haunt the world. This is already shaping up to be an excellent murder mystery with a real-world twist.”
Women Write About Comics

Incognegro: Renaissance goes on sale October 3, 2018, and is available for preorder on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop. This 128-page hardcover retails for $19.99.
