That dude Robert Love leaked a few pages from the next installment of his post-apocalyptic action comic Number 13 today. As you can imagine, I'm psyched!
So Genndy Tartakovsky's doing that thing he does with Power Man in the second issue of CAGE! Here's a couple pages I snatched from the internets...
"Wakanda is not just a country. Wakanda is a nation." Ta-Nehisi Coates, in a dope Q+A at Amalgam Comics
Current events got you down, fam? I hear you... Just do what I did: Roll to the comic shop and cop something to read... like the latest issue of Black Panther...
Surrounded on all sides as I am these days by people who want to evoke the spirit of Seduction of the Innocent for their own purposes (whether it's black intellectual analysis of Luke Cage, or feminist hatred of Frank Cho), I generally take the position that objectionable funny book characters are not gonna kill you. Whether you agree or disagree, you need to peep this video for Strange Technology by L'orange and Mr. Lif (f/Akrobatik & Gonjasufi). Just because...
Visuals for the KOOL KEITH x MF DOOM collab SUPER HERO, plus a stream of the album FEATURE MAGNETIC!
New episode of "Oh, Jay..." by Jay (@Doctor_Hue) Kelley and @SamaxAmen, plus a few words about Colin Kaepernick
In case you somehow managed to to not know, Marvel's highly anticipated Netflix series Luke Cage dropped this weekend. This music video Bulletproof Love by Method Man (ripped in full directly from an episode of the series) stands as a great example of how the show pays homage and respect to black pop culture.
Oh, Jay... a comic strip inspired by Houston-based writer/comedian Jay Kelley's social media updates...
"Hip hop ain't dead. Hip hop's mislead. Instead of a new sound, it went pop instead" @OzayMoore + @th3oryhazit
I don't complain about wack raps. I just listen to dope raps instead. So in case you been sullyin' yourself wit that wack sheet, shutupyouface and wash your ears out with Same Team Suckas by Ozay and Chris (formerly Othello + DJ Vajra) featuring Theory Hazit (still known as Theory Hazit)...
"Brothas like me been waitin' for it since I was eight years old..." @MethodMan, on @LukeCage on @Netflix
You're reading this blog because you love comics, hip hop, art, and/or the subculture(s) thereof. So you must love a polymath like Afua Richardson who smashes comics, makes music, and builds bridges for creators on the low, right? Just watch this video and act like you know...
In my middle and high school art classes, I always cut for Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali, whose paintings always seemed to have a cartoon-like quality. So it makes sense that Dali collaborated with Disney and them back in the day. Peep this incredible animate short Destino below.

Start the Day right w/ Pharoahe Monch, Busta Rhymes, Redman, Method Man, Shabaam Sahdeeq and Lady Luck
"I'm from the very same block where glocs get popped, yet the kids play ball and hopskotch..." @DaShade
Here's a couple music videos from one of my favorite emcees, Da'Shade Moonbeam. You know... Just because.
