Brandon Graham Talks RAIN LIKE HAMMERS


I just recently started reading Brandon Graham's graphic novel RAIN LIKE HAMMERS*, so I couldn't resist watching this interview.

Peep this sketchbook monster, fam


AMEN Monster Sticker

This looks DOPE


I just ran into these images from MCMLXXV #1 on Twitter and was blown away by them!  Turns out you can read the first issue for free online.

Kickstart This- The GREAT FORCE

I just came across this Kickstarter campaign for a brand new teen superhero comic called THE GREAT FORCE, and it looks pretty cool.  Check out the preview art below.

Kickstart THIS- NIOBE & DURA: WRATH OF THE ANCIENT


While I was sleeping, NIOBE & DURA: WRATH OF THE ANCIENT dropped on Kickstarter.

"ZION I up in the party so you know it's just bliss..."

Lately we've been celebrating the life and cultural contribution of Zumbi, the emcee/frontman for eclectic Oakland hip hop crew ZION I.  My favorite ZION I song is apparently HUMAN BEING, off their 2012 album SHADOWBOXING, because I have been bumping it nonstop for the past few days...

Happy Birthday Peppermint Patty!


People often do a double take when I tell them that Charles Schulz is one of my influences as an artist.  His strip PEANUTS, which spawned the wildly popular Charlie Brown cartoons, reveals Schulz's mastery of economy, something I always appreciate in great artists.

One of my favorite PEANUTS characters, the resident wild child Peppermint Patty, is celebrating a birthday today.

Are you a Wonder Woman fan?


Check out this week's Throwback Thursday email, where I colored an old Wonder Woman sketch...

WHAT IF..? Episode 1- Peggy Carter Becomes the Super Soldier

As a Marvel Zombie growing up, I was always aware of Cap's love interest Peggy Carter, but I became a fan of the character when she appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger.   I didn't watch Agent Carter when it was on tv, but watching it once I got access to Disney+ solidified this SHIELD co-founder as a trailblazer for the pantheon of Marvel heroes.

The debut episode of Marvel's new animated series What If..? shows us a universe where she becomes the north star in the superhero constellations.

Rest In Power- Zumbi of ZION I

I just found out that Zumbi of Oakland rap crew ZION I passed away on Friday. No words. Rest In Peace. Condolences to his family and friends.

OGN (P)REVIEW- "RECKLESS VOL 1" by Ed Brubaker + Sean Phillips


My man Michael Lagocki recommended RECKLESS Volume 1 the period detective thriller by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, because he knows I dig 80's detective jawns like Spencer For Hire.  In RECKLESS, we follow a washed-up FBI spook who takes on cases that catch his interest.

Insomniac Rap Show- A few throwbacks

Welcome to The Insomniac Rap Show, where I share YouTube videos until I get sleepy.

Let's start with my favorite Joell Ortiz song:

The SHOCKING TRUE STORY of TYPHOON CAT GHOST!


Prepare yourself to be whisked away to the far east for this brief tale of a possibly supernatural  encounter that I immortalized as this non-physical cat drawing...

Happy Birthday GREG NICE!


This morning I found out today (May 30, 2021) was Greg Nice's 54th BIRTHDAY today and went on a bit of a YouTube binge. . . which (of course) I commemorated on Twitter.

REVIEW- CHU Volume 1 by John Layman + Dan Boultwood

If you're one of my longtime GhettoManga readers, you already know I love John Layman's urban fantasy comic CHEW, about Tony Chu a federal agent who gets psychic impressions from anything he eats.  Laymen returns us to the Chewniverse with CHU, starring Tony's shifty sister Saffron.  Saffron uses her ability to read the thoughts of anyone she eats with to get into gangster shit, and boy does she ever in this CHEW prequel!

"I don't really struggle with impatience
I aint' even payin' enough attention for gettin' upset
I will not be getting all stressed. I'm exempt
Doesn't make sense. Sleep when I'm dead.  
Said what I meant Can I get an AMEN?"
-Homeboy Sandman

#NowPlaying "get behind." by Theory Hazit


"I could do a album in a week I'm Theory Hazit
I do this in my sleep I probably do this in my casket
One thing's for sure is that your love is pure magic
But I'm workin on myself, baby. Sorry, you're a distraction..."
-THEORY HAZIT

You gotta say the whole thing. Yes, every time...

I have never been to New Jersey.  My sister was born there, and my other sister lived there for a while, but I've never been.  Still, as a hip hopper I recognize the massive contributions New Jersey has made to the culture.  Some you know:  RedmanLords of the UndergroundPoor Righteous TeachersLauryn Hill an'em.  

Thanks to the internet, I have become aware of tons more incredible musicians from the Garden State that are not yet household names: Venomous2000, King Ra, Conscious Operations, and more...

Now I can add The Band Called FUSE to the list.
