Truth be told, its always been time.
From the pages of history; written and unwritten to the achievements and gifts given to the world; celebrated and otherwise ignored – there has always been heroes. Ah but for Black superheroes, you maybe familiar with some but trust me, there are many, many more! This weekend starting tomorrow, C2E2 is in town. The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) is in town at The Lakeside Center in The McCormick Place to highlight industry professionals and their unique comic artwork. Black Comix, a creative movement headed by art and comic creators Damian Duffy and John Jennings have a panel at C2E2 called
BLACK COMIX: AFRICAN AMERICAN INDEPENDENT COMICS, ART & CULTURE, and will take place in room E352 on Saturday, April 17 from 5:15PM – 6:15PM. On a mission to educate and entertain on the art, culture, vibrancy of a growing surge of talent, the panel and their discussion will help spread the word about overlooked Black comics and their creators. The panel is scheduled to include; comics scholar Stanford Carpenter and comics creators Ashley A. Woods (Millennia War), Jiba Anderson (The Horsemen), and Turtel Onli (Malcolm-10, Sustah Girl).
Yes, of course you’ve heard of Superman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman and Batman but come out and learn about Ogun, Hannah, Dziva Jones, Malcolm-10 and others.
Peace, Power & Prosperity To All The Creators!
