"Never accuse King Youngblood’s Cameron Lavi-Jones of lacking ambition. With their latest project, the activist and songwriter adds another hyphenate to their title, transforming the band’s new EP into an entire cosmology and comics series. AFROTHUNDA charts the band’s origins by way of the planet Xenon. On a quest to defeat the aptly-named Dr. Eval Petrovskin, the band teams up with the always welcome (whether fictional or real) Danny Denial to discover their hidden powers. Throughout, there’s an irresistible mix of the deadly serious and camp. An entire panel is devoted to listing the superheroic Lavi-Jones’ aliases, while undercurrents about gentrification and climate change fuel the narrative. It’s the kind of blend of tones that fueled some of the best Silver Age narratives.”
