A few words about "The Problem" the new video starring @7evenThirty and @GensuDean

"The Problem is that the problem ain't rap.
Can you help me articulate that?"

Miles Morales + All New (Old) X-Men = WTF? But it's Bendis and Asrar, so... WHY NOT?!?

I don't really have much to say about All-New X-men #32. From what I can tell, this X-book stars the original five X-men (Angel, Iceman, Jean Grey, Cyclops and a relatively hairless Beast), transplanted from the past into the present day. Now they have also been transported into the Ultimate Universe, where they meet Miles Morales, the all-new Afrolatino Spider-man...

Robophobic #22 - Cyborg Cockroaches to the Rescue?

This engineer on The Takeaway podcast insists that science can't make insect-sized robots to take on missions that require itty bitty remote-controlled automatons (yet). Unfortunately, I still won't be sleeping at night, 'cause they're building cyborg cockroaches to get the dirty little jobs done instead...

Looks like John Stewart was born again HARD in GREEN LANTERN CORPS: FUTURE'S END #1

So apparently the DC Universe is going through a cataclysmic war or something, and time-traveling is involved... NO WAIT! STAY WITH ME NOW! Yeah, I don't know... But I like John Stewart. So there's that. Look, just check out this preview of Green Lantern Corps: Future's End #1...

Have y'all seen this TMNT fancomic SECRETS OF THE OOZE by @RossCampbelll? SO GOOD!

 The idea of drawing comics featuring characters I don't own and never printing them (because, you know... the law or something...) is totally alien to me. That said, there are some really dope fan comics out there. Here's one of them: Secrets of the Ooze, by that dude Ross Campbell...

#yesReally- BO, PLUSHY GANGSTA: KINGDOM OF BO Trade Paperback published by @ActionLab

I saw an issue of post-hip hop blaxploitation comic BO, PLUSHY GANGSTA the last time I went to the comic shop, but I forgot to write about it when I got home, so I'm glad I ran across this preview art for the trade paperback today...

Preview- DREAM SKILLS, the new comic from Corey Lewis

FACT: Corey Lewis is the sheet. Corey draws comics all the time, and I don't. That makes him awesome. 
Here's some preview pages of his new comic Dream Skills...

Wow! I'm LOVING these STEVEN UNIVERSE comics from @BOOMstudios

I don't have cable, so I wasn't prepared for STEVEN UNIVERSE by steady streams of commercials, but it only took a few images for me to fall in love with Steven, the not-yet super powered member of the mighty Crystal Gems superhero quartet. Once I saw these preview pages for the new STEVEN UNIVERSE comics, let's just say I was hooked!

Is X-(wo)Men as dope as it appears to be?

This fresh cover by Team Dodson drew me into this preview of X-(wo)Men #19 by Marc Guggenheim and company.

Even if you don't read it regularly, ya gotta love @ErikJLarsen's SAVAGE DRAGON...

I actually bought TWO comic books this week (yeah, really!), and neither one of them was Savage Dragon #197... BUT! I did read this issue in the store. It was awesome...

Our favorite zombie-smashing lesbian (Rylie of THE ABANDONED) returns in @RossCampbelll's new webcomic CAN'T LOOK BACK!

You pro'lly already know I'm a big fan of rising star cartoonist Ross Campbell (Glory, TMNT, Shadoweyes, Wet Moon), whose mastery of drawing lovely girls of every conceivable shape, size and color is matched only by his skill at writing them as fully-realized characters. My introduction to Ross's work came from running across the ruthless zombie invasion graphic novel The Abandoned that he put out as part of Tokyopop's awesome but ultimately doomed line of American graphic novels. I said all that to say that Ross's new webcomic Can't Look Back picks up where The Abandoned left off. Sorta...

#downloadThis- Pragmatic Theory presents "Forces Within the Framework" and "#MASSACR"

Instead of going to sleep after work like a sensible dude, I checked my messages and shared a couple choice joints on the GhettoManga Facebook wall. The first person to like it was an emcee named SLiM PiCKENS, who had the cover of Pragmatic Theory's album #MASSACR for his profile pic (maybe the dopest record cover I have seen all year). So scrolling through his pics revealed the above cover for Forces Within the Framework, and I could no longer resist the pull of their bandcamp page...

IN STORES NOW: GENIUS #3- the art by @AfuaRichardson is FREAKIN' GORGEOUS!!!

If you're not reading GENIUS, you are officially snoozing. It might just be a cat nap, though: Top Cow is releasing issues 1-5 weekly. so it's easy to get took unawares. But don't fret, just wipe that gunk outta your eyes and peep this preview of GENIUS #3...

"They told me sex sells, I took the red pill. I chose to stay street, let culture prevail" @therealRahDigga

This is why I fux with the mighty Rah Digga...

Coming Soon- KID CODE: CHANNEL ZERO by Black Kirby (aka @JIJennings and @GodShabach)

I'm embarrassed by how little I write about the exploits of my Black Comix brethren John Jennings and Stacey Robinson separately, or their collaborations under the alias Black Kirby. But it would be an absolute crime to neglect the impending release of their new hip hop superhero comic KID CODE...

DON'T BLINK! A new issue of GENIUS comes out this week! Art by the mighty @AfuaRichardson!

I haven't heard any word of Top Cow's inner city action thriller GENIUS being optioned for movies, cable or streaming teevee, but it's set in South Central Los Angeles, so we'll see. Anyways, check out this preview of GENIUS #2...

#nowPlaying "Han Solo (Chewie Tell 'Em)" by @VerbalGunslinga

"Got a lotta friends and a lotta ends,
So I let the wookie win,
Like my name was Han Solo..."
-Verbal Gunslinger
I know next to nothing about Louisville to Richmond transplant Verbal Gunslinger... But when he favorited a tweet for my blog post about the last week's Conspiracy Worldwide Radio podcast, curiosity got the best of me... 

#nowPlaying THE HAMMER by Jeru the Damaja

I was driving when I heard a new song by Jeru on the Conspiracy Worldwide Radio podcast on Friday. I was so surprised to hear the Damaja's voice that I had trouble staying in my lane. Fortunately, I managed to hold the steering wheel, so here we are. To celebrate the fact that I lived through another day in Dallas traffic, let's peep this youtube rip of Jeru's new EP The Hammer before they take it down.

CWR interviews Cormega, Ish from Shabazz Palaces, Bob Power and more, plus tons of brand new HIP HOP music!

While I was zipping around Dallas traffic Friday, I was rocking out to the Conspiracy Worldwide Radio podcast, wherein the homies Montana and Menace provided me with TONS of new hip hop music from the US and the UK, plus interviews with Cormega, Ishmael Butler from Shabazz Palaces (aka Butterfly from Digable Planets), Watson and Holmes (Stu Bangas and Blacastan, not the award-winning indie comic), and more. Five hours of uncut dope from across the pond...

Hey, Sports Fans! Check out @PhillipBuchanon's new sports comedy comic NEW MONEY!

 There's not enough comics about sports in America, so I was very interested to show you New Money #1,  the brand new joint written by NFL vet Phillip Buchanon 'longside Hannibal Tabu, with art by N. Steven Harris (The Fringe, Watson & Holmes).

OH SHNAP! JINNRISE Vol 2 drops this week! (@AndrewHuerta93 is a friggin BEAST!!!)

 DAMMIT! I been asleep at the wheel or something, because I haven't spent every minute of everyday raving about Jinnrise, the urban fantasy smash from IDW, and its bad to the mothereffing bone artist Andrew Huerta. Stop looking at me like that and check out these preview pages from Jinnrise Volume 2, tough guy!

You wanna get down with Govea, Nunez and Zarate's upcoming gamerverse comic ALT CONTROL DELETE? #KickstartThis

PREVIEW- FROM UNDER MOUNTAINS by Marian Churchland, Claire Gibson, and Sloane Leong #sheGoHard

For those who don't know me, I like hip hop and comics, and I'm a feminist. As such, I get excited when ladies go hard in all the proverbial paints. See, fresh dudes like myself can try to rectify the inequities in hip hop and/or comics culture, but nothing can substitute for ladies stepping up and getting their thang on, seen? To that end, peep this preview of From Under Mountains, an upcoming fantasy bangaroo by the mighty Marian Churchland (BEAST), Claire Gibson, and Sloane Leong.

Mr Hyde goes HAM in this ALL NEW GHOST RIDER preview!

"The Truth" by the mighty Jake One, Freeway and @BrotherAli. Video directed by Rik Cordero #nowPlaying

Three words: @MikeTyson Mysteries ON @AdultSwim! Okay, that's six words...

My not really scheduled trip to Comic-Con 2014 was canceled due to poverty unforeseen circumstances, but here's a preview of Adult Swim's upcoming deadpan comedy cartoon Mike Tyson Mysteries, courtesy of GhettoManga correspondent Yasin Gregg.

You are ALL FIRED for not telling me about ZOMBILLENIUM!

Okay, I will stop blaming others for my shortcomings... I never heard of Zombillenium until a few minutes ago. I am so overcome by this that I can't say much, but just show you what I just saw...

"Weaker than the Euro, stronger than the Peso, but you get what you pay for, so be grateful..." -Homeboy Sandman

Stop the bloodclot crying and peep the new single America the Beautiful by Homeboy Sandman, produced by Jonwayne.

PREVIEW- ALIEN LEGION: UNCIVIL WAR by Chuck Dixon, Larry Stroman and Carl Potts

I never read Alien Legion, the sporadic yet long-running science fiction comic by Chuck Dixon, Carl Potts and Larry Stroman, but from all accounts this new series from Titan will not require knowledge of the previous books to enjoy.

Can STORM live up to expectations?

 I haven't bought a Marvel comic in a long time, but the debut this week of Storm's new ongoing comic by Greg Pak and Victor Ibanez might be more than I can resist...

#WatchTHIS- new "LES WARNING" video by @BodegaBrovas #BelieveInBodega

I just checked my email or something and found a link to Les Warning, the new video by the Bodega Brovas. Watch it, suckaz!

"It's one thing to have a dream, and it's another thing to make that dream come true..." @b3b3music #sheGoHard

That dude Venomous shared this collabo with New Jersey SongWriter/Rapper/Singer B3B3' (pronounced 'Bay Bay') and producer Da Inphamus Amadeuz on Facebook recently and I just listened to it. Yeah... it's dope...

Ms. Marvel, which stars a Muslim-American female superhero, is helping Marvel win the Diversity War...

I have been hearing nothing but good things about Ms. Marvel, the House of Mouse Ideas' first comic starring a Muslim-American superhero. If I was keeping score (and I kinda am), I'd say Marvel is winning the unspoken diversity war with DC.

#FanArtFriday- STORM!

Fan Art Friday- STORM


 If I was gonna buy a DC book these days (and I'm not saying I would), it would be Green Lantern Corps! I mean, that dude Bernard Chang's art got my man John Stewart looking like a boss, plus he's getting biz with Fatality! That said, if you're planning on copping the trade of this, you definitely want to skip this preview on some SPOILER ALERT isht...
