Today, readers are overloaded with social media and news outlets containing stories about violence and discrimination. By now, we should all know about Tamir Rice and the Oregon Militia Standoff. When reading these stories, most imagine a different outcome and ask the same question “What if the scenario turned out different? OogeeWoogee addresses the “What If” questions within this well-illustrated comic featuring the superhero we could only imagine.

The superhero featured in the comic is OogeeMan, the young superhero wading through a racially “Divided States of America” with two striking revelations: The unjust, tragic death of an innocent black American boy versus an entitled, dangerous Oregon militia. Watch as he single-handedly takes on the militia and questions his own sense of national pride and morality. In the 10-page strip, OogeeWoogee’s Ilustrator/Creator, Michael White and Content Director, Wilkins Brutus creates a fictional series of events to showcase, “What if the scenario turned out different?”
