For this episode, Phillips focuses on Truth: Red, White & Black (2002) by Robert Morales and Kyle Baker.
Phillips and I have co-taught a course on diversity and comic books every semester since fall 2018. He's a human encyclopedia of comics. He's been actively reading for decades and has amassed a collection of thousands upon thousands of issues, books, movies, and related merchandise.
As Phillips writes, Truth: Red, White & Black is set in the 1940s and "tells the story of six Black soldiers experimented on by their own government to test the serum that made Captain America."
