man this list really helped me see how many black writers are out there, could you do a list with all the different races, or are there not enough asians and mexicans out there?

I have to also add Trevor Von Eeden to this list. Trevor started at DC comics in 1977, at the age of 17, their first black artist. He co-created the first black DC hero to have his own title at DC, Black Lightning. Trevor is best known for his work on Batman, Black Canary, and Green Arrow. He's recently done a graphic novel, "The Original Johnson", about the first black Heavy Weight Boxing Champion, Jack Johnson and is currently illustrating my own book, Stalker, through Gateway Comics. He's doing a brilliant job, by the way.

He's also an ambassador for the Inkwell awards, and you can find his bio in his own words here: http://www.inkwellawards.com/?page_id=413

You can add Victor Bridges (Freak Force, Faze-1 Fazers), Raven Gregory (the Gift), Mark Beachum (Spider-Man annuals) and Jackie Ormes (the first African American woman cartoonist) to that list.
