Panel Mania: ‘BTTM FDRS’ by Ezra Claytan Daniels and Ben Passmore


In this quirky satire of gentrification, race, and cultural appropriation, Darla, a young, hip black designer, accompanied by her ditzy, trend-crazy white childhood friend, look for a cheap apartment in a now-gentrified urban neighborhood only to discover a monstrous new kind of urban blight.

Written by Ezra Claytan Daniels (Upgrade Soul) and drawn by Ben Passmore (Your Black Friend), BTTM FDRS is a savvy, grisly, comic urban monster story for the social media generation. Below is a 10-page excerpt from BTTM FDRS, which will be published in June by Fantagraphics.
