E.C Stoner first Black comic book artist.

I ran across this interesting blog post talking about the life and career of E.C Stoner the first African American artist to work in comics.

His first comic book work was drawing in Detective comics issue 1. A bit before the cape crusader showed up.

Not only was he the first Black artist in comics he's also credit for co-creating Mr. Peanut.

I recently saw a piece on AETN in Little Rock, AR. about Mr. Stoner and it was very interesting. The creators/producers of that DOCUMATION (new word=documentary + information), are to be commended/applauded. Very enriching.
