LANCE TOOKS

The co-editor of African-American Classics, Lance Tooks (lancetooksjournal.blogspot.com) began his comics career as a Marvel Comics assistant editor. Lance has also worked as an animator on more than a hundred television commercials, films and music videos. He has self-published the comics Danger Funnies, Divided by Infinity and Muthafucka, and illustrated The Black Panthers for Beginners, written by Herb Boyd. Lance’s first graphic novel, Narcissa, was named one of the year’s best books by Publisher’s Weekly, and his four-volume Lucifer’s Garden of Verses series for NBM Comics Lit has won two Glyph Awards. He collaborated with Harvey Pekar on The Beats: a Graphic History and Studs Terkel’s Working, and has recently adapted tales by Mary Shelley and W. Somerset Maugham for the upcoming The Graphic Canon, from Seven Stories Press. Lance moved from his native New York to Madrid, Spain, where he’s hard at work on a new and very original graphic novel.
