The hardcover edition of Incognegro: Renaissance by Mat Johnson (Loving Day, Pym) and Warren Pleece (The Invisibles, Life Sucks) is now available for preorder. Published by Dark Horse, this new novel is a perfect companion and prequel to the tenth-anniversary edition of the 2008 Vertigo graphic novel, Incognegro: A Graphic Mystery.
Incognegro: Renaissance collects Incognegro: Renaissance #1–#5, a page-turning thriller of racial divide, exploring segregation, secrets, and self-image as our race-bending protagonist penetrates a world where he feels stranger than ever before.
When a black writer is found dead at a scandalous interracial party in 1920s’ 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, available in a special 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. In a time when looks could kill . . . Zane’s skin is the only thing keeping him alive.
