"I feel like as an artist I need to start drawing pictures of super heroes beating up Nazis..." @OlaBetiku


Ola Betiku is my friend on Facebook.  He's from the DMV area, and we rarely interact more than liking each other's updates about current events, but when he said this quote about drawing heroes chin-checking Nazis, here's what I knew:

  1. I was definitely doing this.
  2. I would not be drawing Captain America, Spider-Man, or any other major publisher owned characters, because #fupm
  3. I wanted to draw black characters (no, the minority versions of Captain America, Spider-Man, and other major publisher-owned characters don't count, because #fupm)
  4. #fupm stands for Fuck You, Pay Me, which is to say I ain't drawing any characters that belong to any major corporations unless somebody pays me for it.  That is not a rule so much as a guideline that has evolved from my current mood.
So anyways, this is a picture of The Brother, a badass African time-traveler created by Jay Kelley.  I'm working on a story starring this character for the upcoming relaunch of GhettoManga Quarterly, but there's no Nazi robots in it.

HOWEVER, if you want to submit some art or short comics of your characters fucking up Nazis or other white supremacists, send 'em to me and I'll include as many of them as I can in the issue.  Get your art to me by January 31st to be included!

Peace.
