New Nate Powell

Nate Powell's latest comic, "Cakewalk,"  is online for free reading. A short collaboration with writer Rachel Bormann, it follows an adolescent girl in Indiana who naively dresses up in blackface, as Aunt Jemima, for Halloween.

There's also a new Q&A with Nate on Newsarama.

For those hungry for more, here's what's on the horizon:

Any Empire falls somewhere between being a graphic novel and a comics essay. It’s largely about living in a culture of distrust, and about how much energy goes into keeping people afraid of each other. About how, when, and why we might work to break free from that framework. Specifically, it’s how paranoia, racism, and distrust serve the interests of a state, and how any state’s prime directive is its own survival, even in defiance of a democratic majority. The personal elements intertwined have to do with being a military-obsessed kid, moving from home to home, growing awareness of being a misfit, looking for love and peace, and trying to quiet those paranoid and self-destructive voices within myself.

The book will hopefully be out at the end of 2010. I’m also simultaneously drawing a graphic novel called The Silence of Our Friends, written by Mark Long and Jim Demonakos, and hopefully published by First Second Books (though we have no solid publisher at present). That’ll hopefully be released at the end of 2010 as well.
