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

If you have endured more than your fair share of holiday mishaps, you deserve this Street Angel Christmas Special in your life.  

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

Everyone is shedding crocodile tears about the not-so-sanctimonious end of the Netflix wing of the Marvel Universe.  Meanwhile, Netflix is doing what they need to do.  Namely scraping the lesser comix universes for intellectual property gold...

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

This ramen probably gives you KILLER heartburn...

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.

 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?

In the mood for some Gangster Shit?

I would not say that I am often in the mood for gangster shit these days, but when I am, Westside Gunn is one of the cats I've been turning to lately.

In stores this week- WEST COAST AVENGERS #1

I was a big fan of the Hawkeye-anchored West Coast Avengers back in the day, so I readily admit to being excited by the diverse and double-Hawkeye led  line-up Marvel's got on the new book.


A product of Marvel's attempt to replace mutants with a wave of new Inhumans in their mythos, Moon Girl is one of the most promising new characters Marvel has, so it's important to keep an eye on her.  

Looks like Venom #5 Answers a Question We've been asking

 When we were talking about the trailer for the upcoming Venom movie, my dude Lateef asked a question that  gets addressed in this preview of Venom #5.

R.I.P. Project Wonderful

I discovered blogging in 2006.  I never spent a dime out of my pocket for advertising my blog back then, because Project Wonderful enabled me to flip my existing traffic into ads on webcomic sites, video game forums, and more.

DC Gives YOUNG JUSTICE Fans What They Want...

Nothing taps the rage button of American toon heads faster than mentioning the cancelling of fan-favorite superhero action show Young Justice on Cartoon Network.  So when my dude Lateef shared this first-look video of clips from Young Justice's triumphant return to television on the GhettoManga Facebook page, I started imagining my friends' reactions.
