520    "Black Women in Sequence takes readers on a search for 
       women of African descent in comics subculture. From the 
       1971 appearance of the Skywald Publications character "the
       Butterfly"--the first Black female superheroine in a comic
       book--to contemporary comic books, graphic novels, film, 
       manga, and video gaming, a growing number of Black women 
       are becoming producers, viewers, and subjects of 
       sequential art. As the first detailed investigation of 
       Black women's participation in comic art, Black Women in 
       Sequence examines the representation, production, and 
       transnational circulation of women of African descent in 
       the sequential art world. In this groundbreaking study, 
       which includes interviews with artists and writers, 
       Deborah Whaley suggests that the treatment of the Black 
       female subject in sequential art says much about the place
       of people of African descent in national ideology in the 
       United States and abroad." -- Publisher's description
