Preview: Black Mask Studios’ ‘Black [AF]: Devil’s Dye’ Collected

by Brendan M. Allen

Black Mask Studios’ complete Black [AF]: Devil’s Dye miniseries will be available in trade paperback this week. Written by Vita Ayala and illustrated by Liana Kangas, Black [AF]: Devil’s Dye is based in the comic book universe created by Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, and Khary Randolph.

‘When a new drug called VANTA hits the streets, word is it’s the hottest thing since Ecstasy. For regular people, it has all the highs and none of the lows of traditional drugs. There is some fine print, however – for empowered Black folks, the drug causes a total and violent loss of control. 

The Project sends Indigo to investigate, and it soon becomes apparent that this is more than just a new designer distraction for the masses. Indigo together with former Detective Ellen Waters race to find the source of the substance poisoning their people, before it’s too late!’ 

The superhero universe where only Black people have super powers continues to expand. Devil’s Dye is the first time a new creative team builds on to the existing world of Black [AF]

Black [AF]: Devil’s Dye collects all four chapters of the mini, and hits comic book store shelves this Wednesday, January 27, 2021.
