Learn more about Jemisin’s novels, novella, and two short story collections, all from Orbit Books, on her website here.

Far Sector

Alongside Naomi artist Jamal Campbell, Jemisin is the creator of Far Sector, a sci-fi murder mystery revolving around Sojourner “Jo” Mullien, a newly-appointed Green Lantern who must find this murder, surprising since the city has had peace for over 500 years thanks to suppressing the citizen’s ability to feel which thus far made crime nearly impossible and murder null and void.

With stunning art and a fascinating premise like this, comic fans should really give this title a try, as well as the other projects of Jemisin’s. Bustle named Jemisin “the sci-fi writer every woman needs to be reading”. This writer believes, too, that more than just women can appreciate the artistry of Jemisin’s works and find joy within them. Let us all support Jemisin and other Black girls in comics. Let’s normalize Black girl main characters in comics and other books.

I identify as a womanist. I am also gay. I am a Black American-Descendant of American Chattel Slavery. My pronouns are he/him/his, and I am a comics, tv, movie, and video game stan. My expertise for comics and related media are DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Archie Comics, and a little bit of others here and there, but I'm hoping to branch out to other, Blacker and indie comics and related content. I'm a binge watcher and can talk about shows for days. You can find me on YouTube and various other social media platforms as thaboiinblue.
