Black-Owned Manga Company Teams Up With Black Marvel Writer

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

According to CBR, the convention, which took place from Nov. 4–5, the announcement said that Saturday AM will be working with Marvel writer Stephanie Williams on the magazine’s first-ever light novel. The project will be called “Apple Black Origins: Spectrum and the Spectre.” It will be a prequel to one of the magazine’s popular series, “Apple Black,” created by Nigerian artist/influencer Odunze Oguguo, whose online alias is Whyt Manga.

According to the outlet, the comic will predate the series Apple Black by nine years. The series is about a young sorcerer named Sano, destined to save the world. His ancestors consumed Black Apples, allowing them to obtain sorcery powers. The series includes three manga volumes, and a fourth one is scheduled for release on Nov. 21.
Oguguo is excited about the collaboration and stated that Williams brings a lot of expertise and, as a Black female content creator, holds a unique perspective to her art, the outlet reports. Williams has contributed her creativity to well-known and iconic titles like “Captain America,” “Scarlet Witch” as well as “Nubia: Queen of the Amazons,” and “Wakanda.”

With the release of “Apple Black Origins: Spectrum and the Spectre” next year, there is hope that this will be the first of many between the collaborators.
To check out the first three volumes of “Apple Black,” you can purchase the work from the Saturday AM website.
