Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore BOTH drew covers for their new "Ghost Rider" debut

 So we are pretty psyched for the new Ghost Rider comic written by the mighty Felipe Smith, but we aint forgot he's got mad drawing chops, too!

GET YOUR DIRTY HANDS OFF MY WOMAN, TEK!
I met nerdcore emcee/beatmaker Tekforce at the Listening party for Sivion's album last month. Cool cat. Even though he went to the Jean Grae show and I didn't, I am posting a couple of his songs to show how much I am not hating. Cause... I'm totally not hating.

This dude ANDREW HUERTA is SICK with the pen... SICK, I SAY!!!

New cover. New title. STILL the BEST SUPER HERO NOVEL I have ever read! #begBorrowSteal

David Walker (BadAzz Mofo, Blind Monkey Style) has written the best super hero story I've read in a long time, and did it without needing to lean on a superstar artist. If you want to read a decent superhero genre novel, there are lots of choices out there. If you want a GREAT superhero novel, buy Super Justice Force (The Adventures of Darius Logan) now.

*Shrug* I'd watch it...

I'm obviously a big fan of indie comic book dude and filmmaker Yehudi Mercado (Buffalo Speedway, Pantalones, TX), so that explains why I'm already in line to watch/read whatever Hero Hotel is gonna be.  Watch this youtube trailer and I'll hold a spot for you in line...

Marvel announces projects with Felipe Smith, Tradd Moore, and Mike Allred at NYCC

 Much ado was made in the nineties when Marvel Comics' biggest names revolted and founded Image Comics, signaling what many consider the high point for creator's rights and independent comics in America. In the Joe Quesada era, Marvel has reversed their fortunes by turning indie comics (especially Image) into a farm league for new talent. The good times continue to roll for the House of Mouse Ideas, as evidenced by these new books announced at New York Comic Con...

Shut your filthy mouth and go cop "GOTHAM DOWN" by @JeanGreasy! (((airhorn)))

Jean Grae is one of the dopest emcees on the planet. Yes, she's a girl, and she's hot or whatever, but that's not the point right now... SLAP!!! FOCUS, dammit! I don't have a lotta time! Look, she has a new record out called Gotham Down: Cycle 1: Love in Infinity, and you should buy it. Listen to it below...

HOLY CRAP! I have been TOTALLY SLEEPING on THE MOVEMENT!

I don't really pay attention to DC that much since the so-called "New 52" reboot, which is the only excuse I can give for knowing absolutely nothing about The Movement, the story of a grass-roots vigilante resistance in the DC universe. I'd still be clueless if this cover for #5 by the born-again hard (and GhettoManga contributor) Dan Panosian hadn't caught my eye. But let's back up and check out some previous issues...
