Ben Passmore and Ezra Claytan Daniels present and sign BTTM FDRS– an Afrofuturist horror-comedy about gentrification, hip hop, and cultural appropriation.
Once a thriving working-class neighborhood on Chicago’s south side, the “Bottomyards” is now the definition of urban blight. When an aspiring fashion designer and her image-obsessed BFF descend upon the hood in search of cheap rent, they discover something farmore seductive… and deadly. Gentrification and body horror collide in this brutal satire from the award-winning creators of Upgrade Soul and Your Black Friend.
“I fell in love with this comic right about page one, and then just kept falling. Gentrification horror at its finest.” – Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling
