AFROFUTURES makes it debut on KICKSTARTER

AFROFUTURES, a brand new 100+ page magazine curated by Troy-Jeffrey Allen officially launched on Kickstarter on June 18th, 2024 from RexCo Comics & Cosmic Lion Productions! Described as a "radical reimagining of Heavy Metal and MAD for the Hip Hop Generation" AFROFUTURES is a concept album in a comic format.



It features 20 + creators across nine stories and 3 articles brought to you by its Master of Ceremony, an artificially intelligent robot named 808! With 808 as our guide, we will look back on the saga of Black mythology, remixing and redefining the past, present, and future through the jam sessions of a DJ.



“Over the last few years, there has been plenty of conversation about securing Black representation for upcoming generations,” says creator and curator, Troy-Jeffery Allen. “Typically, with a project like this, you're supposed to deliver grand statements about how important it is that we're doing something new and inclusive, but I'm not interested in putting that weight on AFROFUTURES. It’s not important, it's fun! We're just here to express ourselves creatively. AFROFUTURES is the statement.”

Below are some of the stories you can expect in AFROFUTURES!!



"Earth: The Oldest Computer." A short story by Troy-Jeffrey Allen and Mervyn McKoy.


"Telephone." A short story by Erika Hardison and Blyss.


"The Secret Files of Josephine Baker." A short story by Troy-Jeffrey Allen and Johnathan Edwards.

 

The Kickstarter campaign is now live and will run for the next 30 days until mid-July. In addition to digital and physical versions of the 100+ page magazine, backers will find a number of tiers and rewards designed to satisfy all tastes and budgets. There is also a special retail pledge level, which allows supportive retailers to purchase six copies of the magazine at a retail-friendly price. Find out more here!
