Charlamagne tha God published several photos to Instagram featuring new comic strips from The Boondocks on Tuesday.

The new content were all made by the original creator Aaron McGruder and the series animator Seung Kim in honor of Black History Month. They address current topics including the #MuteRKelly movement and President Donald Trump.

Charlamagne included a quote from McGruder about the possibility of the show returning. “Did these for fun (and to see if I still could). More to come… exactly how much more is tough to say.”

“These strips were only possible due to the enormous talent of my good friend Seung Kim, who did the animation for the old show – and he’s a busy guy,” the comic creator added. “Thanks to him and thanks to Charlamagne for putting these out for me while I get my instagram act together.”

The Boondocks was a daily syndicated comic strip created in 1996 for Hitlist.com, an early music website. In 1997, it was printed The Source magazine, a monthly hip-hop magazine. It was later picked up by the Universal Press Syndicate and made its national debut in April 1999.

McGruder sold the television and film rights to Sony Pictures Entertainment and the satirical comic strip was turned into an animates series for Cartoon Network in November 2005. It aired until June 2014.
