 BONA   (Bonafide, 1994)

™ and ©1994 Bonafide Productions

This comic featured stories designed to appeal to inner-city kids, using their own slang and artistic style. Although there were several contributors, editor Jerry Holliday was also the primary writer.

His character Dooley Dooce is a hip street kid whose reputation as a tough gangsta far exceeds his reality. In “Breakdown,” three fly girls from very different backgrounds find themselves tangled in a web of theft, drugs, and financial terrorism. Over in James Fox’s “Astro-Holls,” an unlucky female basketball team and their flight crew take an unplanned trip into the stratosphere, while Holliday’s Doxi Th’ Mutt trips on drugs and travels in alternate dimensions.

As an interesting side note, this may well be the only comic book that also had its own line of “quality street stomping gear,” Bonafide Threads.
