A few words about the CLOAK & DAGGER trailer

This is a drawing I did of the street-dwelling vigilante duo Cloak & Dagger for a client, just so you can feel the love I have for the characters.  So now that you know that I rides for Tyrone and Tandy, watch this trailer Marvel dropped last week...

#NowPlaying LOOPS TWO by MidaZ the Beast

Rhymer/Illustrator Gift Revolver did artwork for this guy MidaZ the Beast, which would be reason enough to encourage you to listen to MidaZ's 2016 album Loops Two.  But as it turns out, Loops Two is a fabulous blend of true-school street hop and nerdcore wordery.  Stream the record below, and read some words from me, if you're so inclined...

#nowPlaying MOOHAMMADEEN by Obadiah ONE

NEW VIDEO- "HOT DAMN" by Venomous2000 & Trilian

Yeah, you should already know this song Hot Damn, because I should have already dropped my review of Venomous2000 & Trilian's dope ass collabo album Sounds of the Great Ones.  But I didn't.  So you don't.  Blaming me is not gonna fix anything, so let's just dive into the new video, and we can all agree that I helped by showing it to you...

Oeming is DESTROYING the art on CAVE CARSON!

DC's handed the keys to some lesser characters to Gerard Way for his Young Animal label of books, and he is making some damn good comics.  My favorite is the incredible Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye with incredible cartoon art by the mighty Mike Oeming (Powers, Mice Templar, Hammer of the Gods).

MegaRan has earned his spot as a nerdcore mogul the hard way, so I always check for his new drops.  He just dropped this mixtape RNDM BEATS ALL STARS on bandcamp today, and I'm only a few minutes into this 51 minute mix, but I'm diggin' it so I figure I ought'a share...

Somebody tell me: Is THE PROWLER as DOPE as it looks?

 So I vaguely remember seeing this cover to The Prowler #1 in stores and thinking the art was nice-looking... but I was only mildly tempted to look at it, let alone buy the thing.  Fast-forward today. After spotting "story so far" page from the preview to issue 2 below, which lays out the premise of the series...
