I was not into sports as a kid, but I eventually became nuts for basketball, and part of the credit (blame?) for that rest firmly on the broad shoulders of George "Meadowlark" Lemon III, the self-styled Clown Prince of Basketball. Before Jordan, Iverson, or Lebron could get my attention, I was introduced to Meadowlark as a child in the seventies, when he was the star of the Harlem Globetrotters cartoon shows (his character was voiced by Scatman Caruthers, but I didn't know that at the time), and their many appearances on Scooby-Doo.

My favorite nerdcore emcee @DaShade is getting his Kylo Ren on in this new video for "The Most Magnificent"
I drew Darth Moonbeam back in April for Austin-based emcee, actor, fight choreographer, indie film maker Da'Shade Moonbeam. Son is very knowledgeable in the ways of the Force, so with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I guess he was inspired to pull out his light-saber this for this updated video to his song The Most Magnificent.

So what did you think of the Jessica Jones trailer?
I finally watched the new trailer for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Netflix joint Jessica Jones. Jessica Jones is a retired superhero who pays her bills as a private detective on the men streets of Hell's Kitchen. My main interest in Jessica Jones is her involvement with my dude Luke Cage (who will appear on her show before getting his own show) and the close geographical relationship to Daredevil, the wildly popular Netflix show that paved the way for this one...

"This isn't a mudhole. It's an operating table. And I'm the Surgeon." -the Goddamn Batman.
Ran across this screencap on Twitter recently. It's from an episode of Batman: The Animated Series called Legends of the Dark Knight that paid homage to three different eras of Batman's pop culture history. This segment is a shout out to the gloriously vicious mudhole brawl from Frank Miller's industry-bending graphic serial The Dark Knight Returns.

Breaking the first two rules of FIGHT CLUB 2...
Some movies are just SCREAMING to be made into comics, and we at GhettoManga love to see screenwriters, actors and novelists using the relatively cheap and elastic medium of comics to expand on the interesting worlds and characters we know from films. To that end, FIGHT CLUB author Chuck Palanhiuk has wisely chosen our favorite storytelling medium to bring us more of his most famous story. Here's a few pages from the first issue, and a review of the series by GhettoManga contributor Michael Lagocki.

You had me at "E is for Exctinction"...
Just between you and me, the last time I was REALLY excited about the X-men was during Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's mind-melting run on NEW XMEN, so my eyes bugged out when I saw the cover to E is for Extinction #1, which explores the Secret Wars remix planet dedicated to the Morrison-Quitely era of Marvel's Merry Mutants. Here's a letter-free preview!

Police Brutality. Peaceful Protest ignored. Gang Truce. it's not CNN, it's the new GENIUS TPB from @TopCow!
written by Marc Bernardin & Adam Freeman and Illustrated by Afua Richardson last summer, they couldn't have known how much police brutality, urban protests movements, gang truces, and violent uprisings would dominate the media for the next year. But even if it's coincidental, that doesn't make GENIUS any less timely now that the trade paperback is in stores.
