Webcomics/Webtoons with Black Protagonists

A cursory online search, by and large, reveals the harsh reality of the webcomic scene. It is desolate with very few if any comics centering around a main character who is black. Somewhat surprising considering that this a niche dying to be filled. Having said that, there are few webcomics/webtoons that do feature the elusive black hero/heroine. Here are a few:

  1. Oh, My Intern!
    A rigid, logical, cutthroat C.E.O who happens to be an Ancient demon reincarnated on Earth meets a spacey, spontaneous and endearing intern. Will she change how he views Humanity and his time on Earth? Will he change how she views herself and her future?
