Join award-winning creators Ezra Claytan Daniels (Upgrade Soul ) and Ben Passmore (Your Black Friend) for a discussion of their new Afro-futurist graphic novel, BTTM FDRS. Once a thriving working-class Chicago neighborhood, the “Bottomyards” is now the definition of urban blight. When an aspiring fashion designer and friend descend upon the hood in search of cheap rent, they discover something far more sinister. Gentrification, body horror and biting social satire combine for a thought-provoking read.
