He wrote and illustrated Fast Enough: Bessie Stringfield's First Ride and the award-winning graphic novel series Strange Fruit: Uncelebrated Narratives from Black History, as well as three volumes of Tales of The Talented Tenth. He has just completed the graphic novel of Ibram Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, forthcoming in June 2023.

For the Tales of the Talented Tenth series: "Joel Christian Gill is a modern day graphic griot. His mastery of visual storytelling coupled with his tireless research make him one of the most important artist/scholars working today." --John Jennings, Eisner-nominated comics scholar and award-winning graphic novelist
"Joel Christian Gill gives Robert Smalls the adventure genre treatment that he deserves. We need so much more of what Gill consistently delivers." --Rebecca Wanzo, author of The Content of Our Caricature: African American Comic Art and Political Belonging
"Tales of the Talented Tenth is a testament, in the words of W. E. B. Du Bois, that everyday Black people stand under the sun, with bravery and courage, to represent us. Joel Christian Gills shows how ordinary people fight for our collective liberation and whose stories are not often at the forefront of our historical consciousness." --Ibram X. Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist
