Aaron McGruder Net Worth $10 Million
Born to an African American family in Chicago, his parents enrolled him in a Jesuit school. Then, he continued his studies at the Oakland Mills High School. Aaron graduated with a major in African-American studies in the University of Maryland.
Aaron’s interest in comic books began while he was studying at the University of Maryland. Frank Cho was the afterward comic editor for the school newspaper. The post was vacant after Frank graduated, and Aaron grabbed it immediately. Aaron didn’t have any definite ideas for the comic and rather designed the comic based on his life experiences in his school and area with a small Hip Hop perspective. This gave birth to the masterpiece “The Boondocks”. It was an instant success when it was initially printed in the paper. It had been praised by everyone, especially the Black students in the faculty as it reflected their lifestyle having an excellent sense of humor.
After his first success, Aaron began posting the strip on the net. It became an online success too. After his graduation, he began printing his comic books with the Universal Press Syndicate. It was such a success that it was eventually printed in more than 160 papers throughout the country, an notable record for this time. His comic books were also embroiled in controversy for topics such as interracial marriage, charges of racism against the whites, and also the constant barrage of attacks against George Bush.
Aaron presently resides in la and is working on his Boondocks comic books. He’s also taking care of a job whereby he intends to release his comic books within an animated comedy series.
