OH SHNAP! JINNRISE Vol 2 drops this week! (@AndrewHuerta93 is a friggin BEAST!!!)

 DAMMIT! I been asleep at the wheel or something, because I haven't spent every minute of everyday raving about Jinnrise, the urban fantasy smash from IDW, and its bad to the mothereffing bone artist Andrew Huerta. Stop looking at me like that and check out these preview pages from Jinnrise Volume 2, tough guy!
Here's the sales pitch:
International student Andrew Marcus’ world is torn asunder when interstellar forces, the “Kibrani,” invade earth. With all hope seemingly lost, humanity’s last chance may be a long-despised and forgotten race: the Jinn (otherwise known as “genies”)! But are they our hope... or greatest fear? In an effort to the defeat the alien Kibrani, Andrew and his ragtag team continue their quest to assemble an army of Jinn (Genies), in preparation to face the full onslaught of the alien hoard, but the key to victory may rest with the decision of a 10-year-old farm boy.

Combining the best of summer blockbuster fare and quest myths like Lord of the Rings, Jinnrise is a modern re-introduction to global myth.


You pro'lly remember that I was geeking pretty hard when I introduced you to Huerta (and Jinnrise) last year, so the fact that I have not been chewing your ear off talking about him everyday since is a testament to how hard I've been working at my jobs. Judging from this preview, Huerta's graf and nineties revival steez is still going strong! I didn't get Jinnrise Volume 1 yet, but I will see if they have it when I go to the comic shop, since Volume 2 comes out this week! Feel free to put in your two cents if you've read it!


Samax Amen draws people, places and things for fun and profit. He is the artist of many great comics you never heard of like Herman Heed, Champion of Children, The Brother and The World As You Know It. He even writes and draws his own comics, like Dare: The Adventures of Darius Davidson, Spontaneous, and Manchild when he gets around to it. Because making comics is hard and stuff, he started GhettoManga as a blog in 2006 and as a print magazine in 2008.

PREVIEW- FROM UNDER MOUNTAINS by Marian Churchland, Claire Gibson, and Sloane Leong #sheGoHard

For those who don't know me, I like hip hop and comics, and I'm a feminist. As such, I get excited when ladies go hard in all the proverbial paints. See, fresh dudes like myself can try to rectify the inequities in hip hop and/or comics culture, but nothing can substitute for ladies stepping up and getting their thang on, seen? To that end, peep this preview of From Under Mountains, an upcoming fantasy bangaroo by the mighty Marian Churchland (BEAST), Claire Gibson, and Sloane Leong.

Mr Hyde goes HAM in this ALL NEW GHOST RIDER preview!

"The Truth" by the mighty Jake One, Freeway and @BrotherAli. Video directed by Rik Cordero #nowPlaying

Three words: @MikeTyson Mysteries ON @AdultSwim! Okay, that's six words...

My not really scheduled trip to Comic-Con 2014 was canceled due to poverty unforeseen circumstances, but here's a preview of Adult Swim's upcoming deadpan comedy cartoon Mike Tyson Mysteries, courtesy of GhettoManga correspondent Yasin Gregg.

You are ALL FIRED for not telling me about ZOMBILLENIUM!

Okay, I will stop blaming others for my shortcomings... I never heard of Zombillenium until a few minutes ago. I am so overcome by this that I can't say much, but just show you what I just saw...

"Weaker than the Euro, stronger than the Peso, but you get what you pay for, so be grateful..." -Homeboy Sandman

Stop the bloodclot crying and peep the new single America the Beautiful by Homeboy Sandman, produced by Jonwayne.

PREVIEW- ALIEN LEGION: UNCIVIL WAR by Chuck Dixon, Larry Stroman and Carl Potts

I never read Alien Legion, the sporadic yet long-running science fiction comic by Chuck Dixon, Carl Potts and Larry Stroman, but from all accounts this new series from Titan will not require knowledge of the previous books to enjoy.

Can STORM live up to expectations?

 I haven't bought a Marvel comic in a long time, but the debut this week of Storm's new ongoing comic by Greg Pak and Victor Ibanez might be more than I can resist...

#WatchTHIS- new "LES WARNING" video by @BodegaBrovas #BelieveInBodega

"It's one thing to have a dream, and it's another thing to make that dream come true..." @b3b3music #sheGoHard

That dude Venomous shared this collabo with New Jersey SongWriter/Rapper/Singer B3B3' (pronounced 'Bay Bay') and producer Da Inphamus Amadeuz on Facebook recently and I just listened to it. Yeah... it's dope...

Ms. Marvel, which stars a Muslim-American female superhero, is helping Marvel win the Diversity War...

I have been hearing nothing but good things about Ms. Marvel, the House of Mouse Ideas' first comic starring a Muslim-American superhero. If I was keeping score (and I kinda am), I'd say Marvel is winning the unspoken diversity war with DC.

#FanArtFriday- STORM!

Fan Art Friday- STORM


 If I was gonna buy a DC book these days (and I'm not saying I would), it would be Green Lantern Corps! I mean, that dude Bernard Chang's art got my man John Stewart looking like a boss, plus he's getting biz with Fatality! That said, if you're planning on copping the trade of this, you definitely want to skip this preview on some SPOILER ALERT isht...

So, yeah. @WaltSimonson is the SHEET! That is all.

 I have met many famous people and never fanned out on any of them... except when I met Walt Simonson. He was really nice, and drew a sketch in my little sketchbook, smiling at me as I blubbered something along the lines of "uuuhhuuh... I like Thor."
Anyways, this is his creator-owned joint Star Slammers:Remastered...

Start the day offRight with @Rhymageddon and @Venomous2000

Fan Art Friday- Captain America by @SamaxAmen

"Hair trigger temper. The Last Airbender. Quick to Blair Witch ya. Authentic rare mixture." @Griffen

I'm not sure why Chicago underground rap vet Profound shared this link to the video for Erywhere (a track he rhymed on with this young cat Griffen) with me yesterday. Maybe he knows I'm from Dallas, and that I would dig the D.O.C. sample at the beginning? Maybe he knew I would appreciate how they flipped my favorite Black Thought verse into a whole new song? I don't know. But what I do know... is that this... is dope...

Drugs, black on black violence and abusive parenting? Hey kids, it's BATWING #33

 Here's another dope Batwing cover by Dan Panosian. Looks like Bats got into Kaneda's stash again. So anyways, Batwing #33 introduces a new villain into the new 52 Batman rogue's gallery. Peep...

If you're part of the "there's no black people making comics" crowd, or you're always screaming "there's not enough women artists in the industry"... You probably need to lay off the caffeine. But don't worry, I'm not gonna take your Starbucks from you. I just recommend you read this preview of the upcoming Top Cow series GENIUS while you sip your caramel macchiato...

Here's a bunch of art by @JimMahfood, because I said so...

You know I friggin' LOVE Jim Mahfood's art, right? Course you do! So I don't need an excuse to post a ton of his art on GhettoManga do I? Hell nawl I don't. So when I came across  a shitload of fresh FOOD ONE jawnts in my Facebook feed, you already know this was bound to happen...
