I finally caught up with the cool kids last week and listened to the #BlackComicsChat Show, and it was awesome! In fact, I posted a Tweet that was actually read live on the air, which I didn't expect...
Rob Liefeld is the MC Hammer of comics #BlackComicsChat— Samax Amen (@SamaxAmen) August 21, 2015
*still waiting on that avalanche of pro-Liefed emails... *
So even though the dude who read it totally massacred my name in front of a nation-wide audience (it's pronounced "some AX"), on balance it was a totally cool experience! But enough about me... I just wanted to give a heads-up:
That dude Dawud Anyabwile (tune in for proper pronunciation!), co-creator/artist of the game-changing, hip hop infused Brotherman comic book series, posted the flier announcing that he will be on #BlackComicsChat this week (hopefully alongside co-creator/writer Guy Sims, and coloring genius Brian McGee) talking about the long-awaited original graphic novel prequel Brotherman: Revelations.
So I'm gonna invite you to tune in to the live show & tweet along with us on Friday August 28th starting at 8pm east coast time. 'Cause I'm part of it now, so I can invite people. That's how the social media thing works, seen*?
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.
