Writer Mat Johnson (HELLBLAZER: PAPA MIDNITE), winner of the prestigious  Hurston-Wright Legacy Award for fiction, constructs a fearless graphic novel  that is both a page-turning mystery and a disturbing exploration of race and  self-image in America, masterfully illustrated with rich period detail by Wareen  Pleece (THE INVISIBLES, HELLBLAZER). In the early 20th Century, when lynchings  were commonplace throughout the American South, a few courageous reporters from  the North risked their lives to expose these atrocities. They were  African-American men who, due to their light skin color, could “pass” among the  white folks. They called this dangerous assignment going “incognegro.”
