WaterShed Graphic Novels
WaterShed is a love and death story about America through the lens of race: a sweeping, multi-volume account that merges nonfictional elements of history, culture, and current events with speculative fiction
You are invited along on the journey of Winnie Skye, who unwittingly finds herself directly and indirectly oscillating between three time periods: the unsettled past of this country’s original sin, present day (at the infancy of a new wave of the Black Liberation Movement), and an uncertain dystopian future consumed by a questionable oligarchy.
Volume I will be released on December 22, 2018
