The EXCELLENT adventures of Marvel's mighty Muslim-American superheroine continue!

I can't tell you how pleased I was to look at the latest preview of Ms. Marvel and see that G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona are still working on the book. As I have said before, Wilson and Alphona are doing a splendid job on Ms. Marvel, and I think it's mad important to have a consistent creative team on a fledgling book with a promising new character.

"See, the truth is 
some of y'all claiming that ya ruthless
forgot about the art of making music."

Yo... That new "Mike Tyson Mysteries" trailer got me f****d up... (shout out to @ZERUDAH)

Human link-sharing machine showed me this new trailer for the upcoming Adult Swim show Mike Tyson Mysteries, which made me laugh so hard I had to pass it on...

Check out this STEVEN UNIVERSE #3 preview from @BOOMstudios!

 I became an instant fan of Cartoon Network's Steven Universe when I stumbled onto the KABOOM series of Steven's misadventures as the mostly powerless member of the Crystal Gems superhero squad. STEVEN UNIVERSE is like Snarf or Orko having their own series while the Lion-O, He-man or whoever are off saving the world in the background.  Anyways, I was late to the party, but I'm glad to be here. Peep this preview of Steven Universe #3

"They say that those that can't do teach, but those that can't teach ain't got no room to speak" @MegaRan

I went looking for some music to draw to and ran across this heater Faculty Lounge (remix) by Mega Ran, off his 2012 album Language Arts Volume 3. This joint features Donwill, Sammus and the mighty Homeboy Sandman. Good stuff...

Wanna see some unlettered art from DEATHLOK #1? OF COURSE YOU DO!

Glad to see Marvel bringing back Deathlok. I mean, Marvel and DC are stuck in the nineties like my generations' musical tastes, so I say we are due for some new Deathlok joints...

Things get... hairy in this preview from RAT QUEENS #8.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" meets "Kill Bill"? And the Bride is a SISTA? I'm SO DAMN DOWN with "THE NAMES"

I ran across this cover to the second issue of Peter Milligan's new murder mystery The Names, and was so mesmerized by the cover art by Celia Calle that I had to snoop out preview art from the first couple issues and post it below...

the Badass Witches of Helheim return for Vengeance: BRIDES OF HELHEIM by @CullenBunn and @Joelle_Jones via @OniPress

I never read the Oni Press action fantasy comic HELLHEIM by Cullen Bunn, Joëlle Jones and Nick Filardi, but this new spinoff/sequel BRIDES OF HELHEIM features undead warriors, weapon-toting witches and disproportionate revenge. Hellz. Yeah...


Y'all know I cuts for Larry Stroman from his work on X-Factor for Marvel Comics and his creator-owned book TRIBE back in the nineties. Hence, I am honor-bound to post this preview from this revival of the sci-fi action comic Alien Legion: Uncivil War he's working on with Chuck Dixon and Carl Potts...

DAMION SCOTT takes over art chores on ALL NEW GHOST RIDER!! (((airhorn)))

 I had no idea that Damion Scott and Robert Campanella were the new art team on ALL NEW GHOST RIDER but it looks like they did. Last month's cover (above) was done by series co-creator Tradd Moore, but check out the interiors to this and the new issue below, by Scott and Campanella.

You had me at "World War Wendigo"... OR... PREVIEW- Amazing X-MEN #11

Because you are not a recovering Marvel Zombie like me, you might not know that the Wendigo is a mystical cannibalistic spirit that possesses people and transforms them into super-strong rampaging white wookies. But only in Canada, because it's magic. CANADIAN magic, son! Anyways, one Wendigo can give the Hulk a good slapping around, so you don't want none of the Wendigo blitzkrieg they are dealing with in Amazing X-men #11, which is part 4 of the 5 part World War Wendigo storyline (so you consider yourself alerted to the spoilers in this preview)...

My concerns about STORM, and 4 things @Marvel should do about it

I bought the first couple issues of STORM, the new ongoing series about Marvel's most prominent female super hero. I enjoyed them both, especially the first one. But there's definitely something bothering me about this series already...

A few words about "The Problem" the new video starring @7evenThirty and @GensuDean

"The Problem is that the problem ain't rap.
Can you help me articulate that?"

Miles Morales + All New (Old) X-Men = WTF? But it's Bendis and Asrar, so... WHY NOT?!?

I don't really have much to say about All-New X-men #32. From what I can tell, this X-book stars the original five X-men (Angel, Iceman, Jean Grey, Cyclops and a relatively hairless Beast), transplanted from the past into the present day. Now they have also been transported into the Ultimate Universe, where they meet Miles Morales, the all-new Afrolatino Spider-man...

Robophobic #22 - Cyborg Cockroaches to the Rescue?

This engineer on The Takeaway podcast insists that science can't make insect-sized robots to take on missions that require itty bitty remote-controlled automatons (yet). Unfortunately, I still won't be sleeping at night, 'cause they're building cyborg cockroaches to get the dirty little jobs done instead...

Looks like John Stewart was born again HARD in GREEN LANTERN CORPS: FUTURE'S END #1

So apparently the DC Universe is going through a cataclysmic war or something, and time-traveling is involved... NO WAIT! STAY WITH ME NOW! Yeah, I don't know... But I like John Stewart. So there's that. Look, just check out this preview of Green Lantern Corps: Future's End #1...

Have y'all seen this TMNT fancomic SECRETS OF THE OOZE by @RossCampbelll? SO GOOD!

 The idea of drawing comics featuring characters I don't own and never printing them (because, you know... the law or something...) is totally alien to me. That said, there are some really dope fan comics out there. Here's one of them: Secrets of the Ooze, by that dude Ross Campbell...

#yesReally- BO, PLUSHY GANGSTA: KINGDOM OF BO Trade Paperback published by @ActionLab

I saw an issue of post-hip hop blaxploitation comic BO, PLUSHY GANGSTA the last time I went to the comic shop, but I forgot to write about it when I got home, so I'm glad I ran across this preview art for the trade paperback today...

Preview- DREAM SKILLS, the new comic from Corey Lewis

FACT: Corey Lewis is the sheet. Corey draws comics all the time, and I don't. That makes him awesome. 
Here's some preview pages of his new comic Dream Skills...

Wow! I'm LOVING these STEVEN UNIVERSE comics from @BOOMstudios

I don't have cable, so I wasn't prepared for STEVEN UNIVERSE by steady streams of commercials, but it only took a few images for me to fall in love with Steven, the not-yet super powered member of the mighty Crystal Gems superhero quartet. Once I saw these preview pages for the new STEVEN UNIVERSE comics, let's just say I was hooked!

Is X-(wo)Men as dope as it appears to be?

This fresh cover by Team Dodson drew me into this preview of X-(wo)Men #19 by Marc Guggenheim and company.

Even if you don't read it regularly, ya gotta love @ErikJLarsen's SAVAGE DRAGON...

I actually bought TWO comic books this week (yeah, really!), and neither one of them was Savage Dragon #197... BUT! I did read this issue in the store. It was awesome...

Our favorite zombie-smashing lesbian (Rylie of THE ABANDONED) returns in @RossCampbelll's new webcomic CAN'T LOOK BACK!

You pro'lly already know I'm a big fan of rising star cartoonist Ross Campbell (Glory, TMNT, Shadoweyes, Wet Moon), whose mastery of drawing lovely girls of every conceivable shape, size and color is matched only by his skill at writing them as fully-realized characters. My introduction to Ross's work came from running across the ruthless zombie invasion graphic novel The Abandoned that he put out as part of Tokyopop's awesome but ultimately doomed line of American graphic novels. I said all that to say that Ross's new webcomic Can't Look Back picks up where The Abandoned left off. Sorta...

#downloadThis- Pragmatic Theory presents "Forces Within the Framework" and "#MASSACR"

Instead of going to sleep after work like a sensible dude, I checked my messages and shared a couple choice joints on the GhettoManga Facebook wall. The first person to like it was an emcee named SLiM PiCKENS, who had the cover of Pragmatic Theory's album #MASSACR for his profile pic (maybe the dopest record cover I have seen all year). So scrolling through his pics revealed the above cover for Forces Within the Framework, and I could no longer resist the pull of their bandcamp page...

IN STORES NOW: GENIUS #3- the art by @AfuaRichardson is FREAKIN' GORGEOUS!!!

If you're not reading GENIUS, you are officially snoozing. It might just be a cat nap, though: Top Cow is releasing issues 1-5 weekly. so it's easy to get took unawares. But don't fret, just wipe that gunk outta your eyes and peep this preview of GENIUS #3...

"They told me sex sells, I took the red pill. I chose to stay street, let culture prevail" @therealRahDigga

This is why I fux with the mighty Rah Digga...

Coming Soon- KID CODE: CHANNEL ZERO by Black Kirby (aka @JIJennings and @GodShabach)

I'm embarrassed by how little I write about the exploits of my Black Comix brethren John Jennings and Stacey Robinson separately, or their collaborations under the alias Black Kirby. But it would be an absolute crime to neglect the impending release of their new hip hop superhero comic KID CODE...

DON'T BLINK! A new issue of GENIUS comes out this week! Art by the mighty @AfuaRichardson!

I haven't heard any word of Top Cow's inner city action thriller GENIUS being optioned for movies, cable or streaming teevee, but it's set in South Central Los Angeles, so we'll see. Anyways, check out this preview of GENIUS #2...

#nowPlaying "Han Solo (Chewie Tell 'Em)" by @VerbalGunslinga

"Got a lotta friends and a lotta ends,
So I let the wookie win,
Like my name was Han Solo..."
-Verbal Gunslinger
I know next to nothing about Louisville to Richmond transplant Verbal Gunslinger... But when he favorited a tweet for my blog post about the last week's Conspiracy Worldwide Radio podcast, curiosity got the best of me... 

#nowPlaying THE HAMMER by Jeru the Damaja

I was driving when I heard a new song by Jeru on the Conspiracy Worldwide Radio podcast on Friday. I was so surprised to hear the Damaja's voice that I had trouble staying in my lane. Fortunately, I managed to hold the steering wheel, so here we are. To celebrate the fact that I lived through another day in Dallas traffic, let's peep this youtube rip of Jeru's new EP The Hammer before they take it down.

CWR interviews Cormega, Ish from Shabazz Palaces, Bob Power and more, plus tons of brand new HIP HOP music!

While I was zipping around Dallas traffic Friday, I was rocking out to the Conspiracy Worldwide Radio podcast, wherein the homies Montana and Menace provided me with TONS of new hip hop music from the US and the UK, plus interviews with Cormega, Ishmael Butler from Shabazz Palaces (aka Butterfly from Digable Planets), Watson and Holmes (Stu Bangas and Blacastan, not the award-winning indie comic), and more. Five hours of uncut dope from across the pond...

Hey, Sports Fans! Check out @PhillipBuchanon's new sports comedy comic NEW MONEY!

 There's not enough comics about sports in America, so I was very interested to show you New Money #1,  the brand new joint written by NFL vet Phillip Buchanon 'longside Hannibal Tabu, with art by N. Steven Harris (The Fringe, Watson & Holmes).
