The Mama's Boyz characters also act as official spokescharacters of the American Diabetes Association's African-American Program. For more information please see my diabetes section.
In addition to the weekly comic strip, Mama's Boyz can be seen in their own book, shirts, mugs, books such as "Chicken Soup For the African-American Soul", and many other websites.
Here's a review that I found online. It almost brought a tear to my eye. :)
Mama's Boyz is one of the best comic strips drawn today. It promotes traditional values, black culture and the family humorously. The strip always makes one smile and laugh. We at the Charlottesville/Albemarle have received many compliments and it has been a welcome addition for our younger readers. Our paper is used in some area schools and children of color relate well to the characters (grown-ups love it too). As an African-American publication, we appreciate the positive images portrayed in the strip and would recommend it highly to any publication that is interested in diversity, as well as, the inclusion of a very good comic strip.
