Huey Remixed 2000: Fear of a Black Marker by Keith Knight

In 2000 in San Francisco, CA (USA), a cartoon of Keith (himself) in a rattan chair holding a marker and a pencil made by Keith Knight, was published on the cover of “Fear of a Black Marker”.


Please also notice the second re-mix reference to Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet.


“Keith Knight’s comics are simultaneously lighthearted, wild, and clever, and his great strength is the deftness with which he blends political insight, whacked-out surrealism, neurotic humor, and personal honesty. His comic strip, K Chronicles, runs in the San Francisco Examiner, on, and in dozens of alternative newsweeklies across the country. Reminiscent of Calvin and Hobbes, Knight’s drawing style is fluid and dynamic.”
