Suretone Wrangles Up D'onifrio's THE KID For Lionsgate - It looks as if there won't be any love lost for 17-th century gunman and outlaw, Billy The Kid in what music man-turned-film producer Jordan Schur has in s...
Preview pencils from DEADPOOL #1 (by my dude @MikeHawthorne) and my thoughts about the @DeadpoolMovie trailer
|I like your art Wade, but it's not what we're looking for at this time...|
I'm pretty sure Salt n Pepa and DMX will not be on the soundtrack to Deadpool, but Marvel has been playing the role of hip hop aficionados lately, so you never know...
If you read the fresh indie graphic novel series Legend of the Mantamaji (and I recommend that you read it, if you haven't already), you'll get a huge kick out of this live action short, written and directed by series creator and professional tv dude Eric Dean Seaton
A few words about the late, great Sean Price aka Ruck aka Mic Tyson aka Kimbo Price aka Mega Sean aka... #RIP
I awoke late on Saturday to the terrible news that the mighty Sean Price of Heltah Skeltah, Boot Camp Clik and Random Axe died in his sleep that morning in Brooklyn...
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.
I always loved DC's pseudo-Egyptian master mage Dr. Fate. I also enjoy Sonny Liew's art. So I was pleasantly surprised to see Sonny's art on the Lord of Order's new Dr. Fate series, written by Paul Levitz!

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.
"Nothing's strong enough to hold you down forever. Mama was right. Only you can make it better" @Venomous2000
In the interest of starting my day off right, I got this new video Will Power by the mighty Venomous2000 on repeat...
Here's some preview pages from the first couple issues
Anyways, here's a preview of STORM #11...
I got a dm last night from the mighty LeSean Thomas confirming that production has officially started (in Japan, of course) on his hip hop flavored action-adventure animated series Cannon Busters.
In past decades, artists like Wu-tang, MF DOOM and Can Ox opened a pandora's box to a whole world of cats who channel the energy of the streets through hip hop, cartoons, comics and cult movies. GhettoManga is here largely to chronicle the fallout from that explosion, since mainstream outlets have lost interest. Slim Pickens aka Iron Helmet perfectly exemplifies that strain of underground hip hop anti-heroism. Peep...
Finally checked out that new(ish) @BodegaBrovas video Freshest Facade (with extra crooning by the homie @Astronautalis)
"My analysis of life can be a little extreme.
Others think I'm living large, but things ain't what they seem..."
I bought a copy of Aida, a hardcover children's book by Leontyne Price and illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon, a while back at Half-Price Books as an art nerd/good dad impulse buy, but never read it. Last night my six year old daughter fished it out of her tub o' books for some bedtime reading, and we nestled up and gave it a go.
Prince Paul talks greatest misses, and Young Zee responds to Eminem on Conspiracy Worldwide Radio podcast!
Them dudes Montana and Menace dropped a new episode of Conspiracy Radio, recorded on Friday the 13th. This features some great new music, as well as interviews with Necro, Young Zee and an incredible Q & A with the mighty Prince Paul! Paul talks about coming out of the bleachers to release new music with J-Zone and Sacha Jenkins as SUPERBLACK...
