Marvel announces projects with Felipe Smith, Tradd Moore, and Mike Allred at NYCC

 Much ado was made in the nineties when Marvel Comics' biggest names revolted and founded Image Comics, signaling what many consider the high point for creator's rights and independent comics in America. In the Joe Quesada era, Marvel has reversed their fortunes by turning indie comics (especially Image) into a farm league for new talent. The good times continue to roll for the House of Mouse Ideas, as evidenced by these new books announced at New York Comic Con...

Shut your filthy mouth and go cop "GOTHAM DOWN" by @JeanGreasy! (((airhorn)))

Jean Grae is one of the dopest emcees on the planet. Yes, she's a girl, and she's hot or whatever, but that's not the point right now... SLAP!!! FOCUS, dammit! I don't have a lotta time!
