At last - The Original Johnson, Trevor Von Eeden's personal and heartfelt graphic novel biography of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight champion of the world, international celebrity, and the most controversial American of his time. This is the artistic achievement of Trevor's career (Batman, Black Canary, Black Lightning, Green Arrow), more than four years in the making and worth every moment.

Review: The Original Johnson

User Review  - Patrick - Goodreads

Book 1 of a 2 part series. The art is very good. The historical re-telling of the first black heavyweight boxer is a very good idea. The execution, however, falls short of excellent. This is hard to say, because I usually love everything Trevor Von Eeden does. Read full review
