Kaneesha is set in my neighborhood in Gary, Indiana. It deals with the ever present problem of police brutality in our neighborhoods. In the story, Jerome is killed by the police while on the way home from work. His younger sister doesn't know how to handle it.
At the trial, even though Jerome was unarmed, the officers are acquitted. Enraged, Kaneesha sets upon a journey of justice.
Along the way, she must decide if militancy or nonviolence is the correct path to seek equality.
Kaneesha is written by Ben Miller and follows up his successful graphic novel, Judges.
The artist is Randy Stewart. The Colorist is Walter Barna, also known from Dark
Foundations and Osiris Path.
