Corben Spectre Page B

Richard Corben Spectre page from Solo #2

DC Comics 1995

"They can't hear you because you're dead, Adah."

Black Americans are not represented in DC or Marvel comics as citizens and background characters very often (there are certain Black American superheroes, of course). The race mix on the pages of Corben's DC comics work, for example the brief Batman tale that appeared in Batman Black and White, does include black Americans, both as perpetrators and victims, i.e., common citizens of his comic book streets.

Corben's heavy blacking is suited to both Spectre and Batman, both characters of dark environments (and needless to say, anger). Corben adds humor to the emotional environment, though.
