“My character is Det. Louise Cullen who is strong and sexy. It’s set in Detroit and it’s a very Detroit story. It becomes a character in the whole story and its infused in it. It’s an awesome, awesome cast so I think everybody should tune in.” Alexander also writes a graphic novel with her husband “Eraser” writer and director Tony Puryear and her brother, Robert.

“Concrete Park,” written in response to the dearth of African-American stories in the sci-fi and graphic novel genres will be part of the Best American Comics 2013 series that will be published in hardcover by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on October 8.

“Being chosen as a Best American Comic our first year out is fantastic,” Alexander says. “For African-American artists like us, it’s something more, because it’s always a struggle to have our true voice heard. It’s difficult to stay encouraged. This honor is fuel for our journey, because we know there’s a ton of work ahead of us.”

“Low Winter Sun” airs on AMC on Sundays at 10 p.m.
