Review quote

"A comic that's confident in itself and doesn't need
to rely on overwrought high-concept themes. Bitter Root isn't afraid to tackle
weighty issues while still having some fun, giving us some new heroes that are
much needed in today's world." "The tragedy and family drama at the heart of

comic that is, at heart, anything but traditional." -The Hollywood
Reporter "Puts a monstrous face on bigotry and a
beautiful new spin on the Harlem Renaissance." -The Onion's AV
Club "Has become a conversation starter in the comic
book industry, which continues to awaken to more diverse ways of creating
characters both on the page and behind the scenes. The comic is by an all-black
creative team and features a predominantly black cast of characters in the
1920s-embracing the black artistic creativity of the Harlem Renaissance but also
recognizing the racism of the time." -The Washington
