Winner of an International Ibsen Scholarship, sponsored by the Norwegian Ministry of
Culture. THE MASTER COMIC is a fun and satirical study of the rise and fall of a once great,
and now controversial Black entertainer. Lincoln Wolfe is the very picture of education, charm,
wit, and class but has allegedly led a secret double life as a pathological victimizer. Inspired by
the enduring ideas and enigmatic characters found in Ibsen’s classic The Master Builder, THE
MASTER COMIC explores issues of race and respectability politics, and examines the existential
and identity related problems specific to African Americans negotiating perceptions of success in
the U.S.
