Publisher Description

"This mesmerizing blend of Black American folk tradition and dark fantasy provides much food for thought, as well as edgy entertainment." —Library Journal (starred review)

When Black graduate student Lyndsey begins her dissertation work on a mysterious box that pops up during the most violent and troubled time in Africana history, she has no idea that her research will lead her on a phantasmagorical journey from West Philadelphia riots to Haitian slave uprisings. Wherever Lyndsey finds someone who has seen the Box, chaos ensues. Soon, even her own sanity falls into question. In the end, Lyndsey will have to decide if she really wants to see what's inside the Box of Bones. Described as "Tales from the Crypt Meets Black History," Box of Bones is a supernatural nightmare tour through some of the most violent and horrific episodes in the African Diaspora. Ayize Jama-Everett and John Jennings have assembled a talented group of artists for this ten-issue project, including cover artist, Stacey Robinson (I Am Alfonso Jones), David Brame (MediSIN), Avy Jetter (APB: Artists against Police Brutality), and Tim Fielder (Matty's Rocket).

“It was a little confusing to read, as I didn't understand why she's searching. And also the panels for the memories were all kinda jumbled to my brain. Hella creepy and dark. Might read the next installation.”
“The book is really great. I would like to give 4 stars to the book. The plot is very different from other horror comics. It is my first book, which I have read about Black People. The stories were so compelling and interesting, that I finished within a day. Graphics are good. The book focuses on some important issues surrounding colored folks. If you love to read about them, then go ahead.”
