Incognegro: An Unknown Superhero

Always Forever Reading’s Rating = 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Superman. Aquaman. Batman. Black Lightning. You may have heard of these superheroes, but have you ever heard of Incognegro? Like these superheroes, Incognegro fights for truth. His mission is for justice to prevail and racial inequality to cease. However, out of all these heroes, Incognegro has much in common with Superman.

By day, Superman is Clark Kent; Incognegro is Zane Pinchback. Clark Kent works for the Daily Planet as a reporter; Zane Pinchback is a reporter for the New Holland Herald. Just as Superman has special powers, so does Incognegro. However, Incognegro’s power allows him to report gruesome details about the lynchings of African Americans, while being black. Due to his skin complexion, he has the ability to “pass” as a white man. Therefore, without getting caught, he is able to attend lynchings throughout the South. However, there have been times in which his identity has been revealed, but he has managed to escape the lynchers because he knows that if he is captured, then his consequences will be extremely dire.

Growing weary of reporting about lynchings, Zane wants a new occupation, something totally different. He wants to write about the Harlem Renaissance as Zane Pinchback. However, his supervisor has other plans. He wants Zane to travel to Tupelo, Mississippi to complete one last mission. There are only two problems. First, he will be unknowingly reporting about the lynching of his brother, Alonzo Pinchback. Second, his best friend, Carl, decides to travel to Tupelo because he wants to become the new Incognegro. He believes that on-the-job training is the best type of training, but in this case, is it? Will Incognegro be able to rescue Alonzo in time? Is Carl making a wise decision? Read this exciting graphic novel and pay attention to Warren Pleece’s illustrations because they truly capture every word on each page. I promise that you will not be disappointed.
