Real Deal Comix

On sale date: September 6, 2016

A vital piece of alternative comic history about Black culture by Black cartoonists.

Inspired by magazines like Mad and traditional superhero comics, Real Deal magazine was a self-published, independent comic book created in the 1990s by Lawrence Hubbard (a.k.a “RawDog”) and H.P. McElwee (a.k.a. “R.D. Bone”). Peopled with a cast out of a blaxploitation movie — convicts, hustlers, drug addicts, crack whores, car thieves, and murderers — these cult-classic comics straddle the line between satirizing and showing the harsh realities of urban life.


“Raw immediacy that yanks your head back then follows up with a perfect throat punch. Real Deal Comix is just about every kind of disgusting you can think of but impossible to look away from.” — io9

“Real Deal IS the real deal. There is no realer, better comic out there. This is high, high, high comics art. Each issue is a constantly escalating explosion of violence, violent sex, and hostile violence, but made beautiful through the drawings of the self-taught Lawrence "Raw Dog" Hubbard.” — Vice
