"One day, I got struck by knowledge of Self. It gave me super-scientifical powers..." -Jeru

One of my favorite clients that I don't get to work with enough is mixed martial artist D'Juan "Dirty South Owens.  

The other day he posted a quote by Pan-African scholar Dr. Amos Wilson.  

For whatever reason, that made me think of You Can't Stop the Prophet, hip hop classic by golden era emcee Jeru The Damaja ("damager" because alternative spelling is a hip hoppers prerogative).  You will find both below.

Are You Honoring People's Time Or Wasting It?

This preview of BLACK HAMMER: Age of Doom #12 is FULL of SPOILERS for the series. #JustSaying

My favorite comic over the last year is probably Black Hammer, the award-winning story of an assemblage of superheroes stranded in a pocket universe that includes only one sleepy farm town.  As Age of Doom (and I assume the entire series) comes to a close, I will take this occasion to speak on my experience as a fan of the series.

As you probably know, I love Spider-Man. So if you give a speech about Responsibility, I'm gonna draw Spidey in the margins (or in my Big Black Book)...
