I’ve been getting back into reading comics. With so many diverse stories and character coming out, there no better time then now to do so. In honor of Black History Month, here are four comics by Black creatives that are worth checking out.
It’s Black History Month, There are some pretty interesting things popping off in the nerd community. One of my favorite highlights is, the 28 Days of Black Cosplay, which is celebration created by Chaka Cumberbatch-Tinsley five years ago. And since then, the number of participants have grown tremendously.
Rescue Me is about a young woman named Sandra, who has a lot on her shoulders. Not only in dealing with her own issues but with issues brought on by those closes to her. An unexpected encounter with a dog turns out to be just what the Doctor ordered.
What’s up, here is my day 10 entry for the 12 Days of Anime. The topic for this video is about content creation. How I decide whether or not to create and publish certain content via our creative channels. Continue reading
I attended my first anime convention back in 2007 with my younger cousin and Drey. Since then I’ve attended, two cons per year for the past 11 years up until last year when the number increased quite rapidly in our pursuit to build SDE. Over the years, I watched the convention circuit change in many ways and for those of you who are apprehensive about attending your first con (for whatever reason).
Here is why I think you should attend your first anime convention.
the Blackfinity Gauntlet Podcasting Summit spanned over two days of the con. The Expo was hosted in The Bourbon Room, formerly known as the House of Blues which is located on the Second Floor of The Showboat Hotel. The House of Blues is an iconic venue, so being able to take in an event in such a historical place made it that much more memorable and the energy was definitely in the air.
This will be our first time attending J1-Con and I’m looking forward to quite a few things. One being the Blackfinity Gauntlet which is a podcasting summit. The Music Festival and Gaming Tournament.
Women in Comics Collective (WinC), is an initiative founded by Regina Sawyer in 2012 to educate, promote and support a movement towards women working in the Comic Books and under other media umbrellas. In their outreach WinC hosts events, workshops and other activities throughout the country. This past weekend, June 30, 2018, we attended one of their events in New York City.
A clip has been circulating online of Kevin Fierg the President of Marvel Studio hinting at a possible induction of Kamala Khan, New Jersey’s very own Miss Marvel. For those who are unfamiliar, Khan is a Pakistani American teenager of the Islamic faith who gains her powers in a “freak accident” like many of her hero counterparts. President Fierg doesn’t go into details on how or when they plan to introduce Kamala to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) but allow me to ramble and speculate. But before I jump into it. Check out the clip below.
This past Thursday, the team and I watched Avengers: Infinity War. It’s been a long time coming and to be honest, I still having mixed feelings about how things played out. Thanos was really menacing, he exuded a level of power and confidence I wasn’t quite ready for. The Titan was a total badass and this got me thinking, based on my knowledge of Marvel Comics who could go toe to toe with the All Mighty Thanos. Here are three characters that I know can do it.
