I’m really excited to share Harriet Tubman Demon Slayer as a Key of the Week.  I’ve followed the trajectory of this book since it’s successful Kickstarter in 2017.  I’ve interviewed the creator of HTDS, David Crownson, several times and can bare witness that this book has been on the verge of a major push for some time now.

He has caught the attention of several publishers and has received his fair share of rejection letters.  Crownson himself has rejected his own fair share of lucrative offers.  All of which have led to this collaboration:

Prentice Penny is partnering with Stranger Comics’ Founder Sebastian A. Jones to recognize and nurture independent comic book creators.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Insecure showrunner and Jones are establishing a joint venture that has not been named at this time. It will be home to an incubator program where “BIPOC” creators can have access to the resources they need to grow their ideas and flesh out their concepts for on-screen projects. The company also plans on launching virtual options for mentorship.

The pair have launched into action already. They are currently developing Harriet Tubman Demon Slayer (David Crownson) and Jaycen Wise (Uraeus) for television.


I highly recommend investing in this book.  Not only is it a strong concept but the book itself is well written and beautifully crafted.  The perfect addition to anyone’s comic book collection.
