Writer MD Marie and artists Carlos Miko and Dema Jr. “disrupt the status quo” with an all-new comic book series “exploring power in the criminal justice system” in Vindication. The series will launch from Image/Top Cow this February, in time for Black History Month.

Art and politics go hand-in-hand. That is why when I see certain people complain about comic books becoming too SJW, I ignore such people. If you have been looking for a comic book series with a strong message, put Vindication on your radar.

Here’s the description:

In turbulent times, when cops are often portrayed as enemies of the people, Detective Chip Christopher walks the blurred blue line between racism and due diligence in order to do his job. And right now, it’s his job to investigate Turn, a young black man with a sketchy past who was previously exonerated of a similar slaying.

So many beautiful colors are dimmed by myopia,” said MD Marie. “I want to provide a lens that lets in a little light.”

The series is said to be “wrapped in the intensity and socio-political implications of The Hate U Give and Fruitvale Station, readers won’t want to miss Vindication’s timely and evocative cat-and-mouse story about a cop bent on catching a murderer.”

Vindication #1 (Diamond code: NOV180041) will be available for purchase on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, January 14, 2019. So, you should let your local comic book shop know if you want a copy.

Take note, Vindication #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.

Fans can also subscribe to receive the series delivered by mail within the domestic U.S. on Image Direct.
