Month of African-American Comics – Cahobba County #6

All this month I’ll be reviewing different comic books by African-American creators, based on submissions from the actual creators of the comic books themselves. A quick note – since this month is so relatively short, I’ll be featuring an extra comic every week, for a total of 32 comics spotlighted! Here is a list of all the comics spotlighted so far!

Today we take a look at the latest issue of Cahobba County, from writer (and creator) Alfonza Hobbie and two guest artists for this issue, Phil Juliano and Alex Lugo (colors by Francisco Asuncion)

Cahobba County is a comic about an underemployed divorced thirty-something year old named Al who tries to get through life as well as he can, while dealing with his friends, his ex-wife, his daughter and God and the Devil constantly bothering him.

Hobbie usually draws the strip himself, but for the latest issue, he had two guest artists. Phil Juliano drew most of the “regular” strips, where we see Al dealing with his ex-wife…

And then see the Devil cause some more mischief for Al…

One of the offbeat aspects of the comic is how Hobbie switches from present day Al to Al of the past, giving us amusing stories at different stages in Al’s life. Here is Al as a kid, trying to run away from home…

Alex Lugo took over for a couple of strips that were REALLY out there…

Cahobba County is a funny strip with a strong cast of characters that interact with each other well.

You can purchase the latest issue (or any of the previous issues) here.
