BLACK VANS is the first release on Afterverse, an imprint designed to push the aesthetic limits of comics through representation, empowerment and world-changing/forging ideas.
Bo is a plus-size, queer Afro-Latino twenty-something in Phuture Philly; he's an EQ, a hacker who, along with his friends, provide intell, comms, and surveillance for super-heroes. Usually hiding out in black vans in dark alleys, these EQs are not ones for the fight, until all the supers started disappearing! It's up to Bo and company to find out why and save the day!
