I totally missed it- "GENIUS" by Afua Richardson

I first came across Afua Richardson years ago on the Artxilla message boards back when that was my primary method of scouting talent and sharing my own work. She was going by the name Lakota Sioux back then, and her work was pretty good. I went through period where I was spending less time socializing with artists and more time prospecting for clients (with mixed results), and she was one of the people who I just lost track of.  In that time, Afua's work REALLY took off, including doing the art on Genius for Top Cow's Pilot Season, which eventually spawned a mini-series. Here's the Pilot issue of Genius, in it's entirety.
