Incognegro: Renaissance #1
After a black writer is found dead at a scandalous interracial party in 1920's New York, Harlem's cub reporter Zane Pinchback is the only one determined to solve the murder. Zane must go ''incognegro'' for the first time--using his light appearance to pass as a white man--to find the true killer, in this prequel miniseries to the critically acclaimed Vertigo graphic novel, now available in a special new 10th Anniversary Edition.
With a cryptic manuscript as his only clue, and a mysterious and beautiful woman as the murder's only witness, Zane finds himself on the hunt through the dark and dangerous streets of ''roaring twenties'' Harlem in search for justice.
A page-turning thriller of racial divide, Incognegro: Renaissance explores segregation, secrets, and self-image as our race-bending protagonist penetrates a world where he feels stranger than ever before.
''A talented writer of both fiction and creative non-fiction, Johnson's publications have established himself as an important new voice in the African-American tradition.''--Walter Mosley
