DALLAS- Can you attend this show tonight, fam?

Hey fam,

DaVerse Lounge is back in a big way, with our first Spoken Word Poetry, Live Art and Music event of 2019. Daverse Lounge is a whirlwind evening of youth poetry and creative expression. I do live art pieces like the ones below to contribute to and reflect the spirit of expression the show engenders.

I'm a leave this right here: "Let's Print a Comic (& Not Screw It Up" #MakeComics

 I'm a huge nerd about self-publishing, so I love the fact that one of Iron Circus Comics highest-selling products is a book about printing comics.  Let's Print a Comic (& Not Screw It Up) is the Inception-style dream within a dream: an indie digital comic about printing your digital indie comics...

#SheGoHard- BEST SHOT by Rocky Rivera

Never been to grad school, but master of the ceremony ..."


Okay... I cuts for TIN BOTT!

GhettoManga 2018 Emcee of the Year

"Ain't no need to fear the Devil, baby when GOD show up. Amen."  
In case you care about my opinion, the emcee who impressed me the most in 2018 is Houston area Tobe Nwigwe ("WEE gway").

My favorite holla day movie is on...

I'm not a big lover of Christmas movies, unless you count movies like the hilarious Eddie Murphy/ Dan Akroyd comedy Trading Places, that have Christmas as a backdrop and not much else.  Whatever the case, Trading Places is on Comedy Central as I'm writing this on Christmas night, and thanks to my dude Jamar Nicholas, I got into a quoting match on Facebook that turned into a watch party...

How Street Angel Saved Christmas

(Umbrella Academy + Movie) x (Mary J Blige + Time Traveling Assassin) = Yes #DoTheMath

I'm THANKFUL for the promise of a TRIBE relaunch...

My friend Alan got me started thinking about the cult-classic comic TRIBE, a creator-owned book that combined the aesthetics of indie superheroes and black consciousness that made it exciting to be a black comic book reader in the early nineties.

RIP Stan Lee

All of us here at GhettoManga are saddened by the passing of iconic Marvel comics writer Stan Lee.

I had some kind of stomach bug this week.  Fever, vomiting... The whole nine.  It only lasted a couple days.  I'm keeping food down again, but still not looking for any  of these Nissin satanic chicken flavor noodles ...

#RoleModels- Check out POISONOUS an Inktober strip by Muhammad Rasheed

I'm a big fan of independent cartoonist M. Rasheed (Monsters 101, Weapon of the People, The Destroyer).  A devout Muslim, intellectual and culture critic, his most inspiring quality is his belief in the transformational power of cartooning.  It looks like he is doing a series of comic strips for Inktober this year.

[(Ghost Rider x Punisher) + Baby Thanos] x [GotG + (HtDxJN) + Cable] = FxCK YEAH #DoTheMath

 I officially FUX wit COSMIC GHOST RIDER, the Spirit of Vengeance-possessed, Galactus-enhanced, post-Valhallan, anti-hero-formerly known as the Punisher.  This book anchored by Donny Cates and Dylan Burnet is more fun than a barrel of time-traveling cyborg monkeys, fam...

 The artwork from this year's Daredevil Annual is my first exposure to Marcio Takara... but I immediately liked his depiction of Misty Knight.  Definitely gonna drop in on the comic shop this week to lay hands on this flashback issue.  Peep the preview below...

Apollo Brown + Joell Ortiz dropping a collabo album? Where do I sign?!?

Detroit is a hornets nest of dope producers, and Apollo Brown is one of the best.  Also, everyone knows I fux with Brooklyn-based Slaughterhouse alum Joell Ortiz.  The duo has come together to drop a new 11-track album called MONA LISA, which is due out this fall.  Stream the first single Decisions below...

STORM deserves her own book... but HEY, here's X-Men Gold #34. That's just as good, right?

Am I the only one exasperated by the fact that Marvel can't make a Storm solo book work?  No.  No I'm not.  Anyways, here's a preview of X-Men: Gold #34.
