PREVIEW- "Malinky Robot" by Sonny Liew

You know how sometimes you have artists who you go crazy for, but you temporarily forget about them until you see some more of their work... at which time you remember and go crazy for them all over again? Maybe it sounds weird, but it perfectly describes my relationship with the work of Sonny Liew (My Faith in Frankie, Wonderland, Sense and Sensibility, Re-Gifters, Liquid City). So I went crazy yesterday when I found out that Image was dropping a collection of his comic Malinky Robot from the venerated FLIGHT anthology. Here's some random pages below that I repatriated from the internets...

start the day off Right w/ C-Rayz Walz

After listening to Montana and Menace build with the mighty C-Rayz Walz on CWR last night, I was in the mood to listen to more rhyming from the Sun-Cycle Emcee, so I went looking and found this on Bandcamp...

CWR interviews Cormega, Jean Grae, C-Rayz Walz & more! #hipHop

Conspiracy Worldwide Radio is back again with another great show. Cormega dials in to speak on his Haiti benefit song I Made a Difference, his upcoming double disc best-of joint Raw Forever, and more. That's cool and all, but I did a serious double take when I heard Jean Grae dropped in bigging up her new DJ Drama mixtape and (of course) teasing her long-awaited studio album Cake or Death. Besides being one of the sickest rhymers you'll find anywhere, she is really deep and the CWR cats delve into some good stuff.  Being that I am in middle-school-intensity love with Jean in general, I would tune in just for that... but C-Rayz Walz has been on my mind lately too, so his appearance on my favorite hip hop interview show was right on time! yeah, we're talking close to six hours music, interviews, etc from the my dudes Menace and Montana.

PREVIEW- Comicbook Comics #youMustLearn

Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey (aka Evil Twin Comics) earned their stripes pushing the boundaries of what you could do with comics with their awesome edutainment comicbook series Action Philosophers, and they are out to teach us the history of this comicbook shit with their new series Comic Book Comics. Here's some previews I snatched off of Indyplanet...

No Cake, but Cookies will do!

So everyone who has any sense is waiting feverishly for Cake or Death, the long-awaited album from Jean Grae. This isn't it, but her Cookies or Comas mixtape with DJ Drama will work for me for the time being. Here's some youTubery and a download link...

Start the day off Right w/FOOD ONE and DJ Mahf

Greetings from Hustleville... Here's a quick turntable session by the Mahfood brothers, DJ Mahf and FOOD ONE (aka GhettoManga Award-winning illustrator and muralist Jim Mahfood)...

Start the Day off Right w/ DJ Jazzy Jeff & Ayah

Good morning, party people! Here's some of that smooth isht from the mighty DJ Jazzy Jeff and vocalista Ayah to get your Friday (and weekend) off to a good start...

Wishlist - Leviathans

 As you no doubt have concluded, I love independent comics. At any given time (even in a good economy) there's way more comics out there that I want to read than I could ever possibly buy! I've started keeping a "Wishlist" of books that I've seen samples from that I want to buy. My main reason is just to give me an excuse to shine light on comics that look freaking awesome... for example, Here's some preview pages from Razor Apple Studios' urban fantasy, Leviathans which introduces Cherry Nine, who has flipped her status as the world's greatest dragon hunter into making her an international reality television star...

start the day off Right w/ some hip hop violin...

One of my Facebook friends posted this yesterday, and I've been rocking hip hop violin joints since, via the magic of the youTube...

Graphic Novel (P)REVIEW- "reMIND Vol 1" by Jason Brubaker

I was in a bad mood the first time I went to the  work-in-progress blog for Jason Brubaker's Graphic Novel reMIND, but one of my readers who actually BUYS my magazine insisted that I check it out, so I did (NOTE: buying stuff might just get you on my good side, but I make no promises...). What I found there initially threatened to send my bad mood into full-blown clinical depression!
"Dang Samax..." you may say. "Was it THAT bad?"
No. It was that good...

I need to check this out!

This movie Summer Wars looks hard...

Start the day off Right w/ Solomon Infinite Abdullah

My dude Solomon Infinite Abdullah gave me a copy of his album CRITMON (Constant Re-creation In The Moment Of Now) years ago... I remember INSTANTLY  loving this song Chrome Faced Destro for obvious reasons...

PREVIEW- Genecy

 If you often find yourself choosing between the sword & sorcery section and science fiction space opera joints, you might just be better off buying InVision Comics' new joint Genecy, which they describe as Conan meets Silver Surfer. In the 36 page debut issue, we meet the merciless slavers of the galaxy-spanning Grunnodian Empire, who have scoured the universe for centuries looking for a cosmic artifact that will give them access to limitless, primal energy and strengthen their stranglehold on their numberless subjects. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts, a runaway slave Kaizakk seeks to beat them to the punch...

PREVIEW- Invincible #80

I haven't read Invincible for a while, but I feel safe saying it's still the best superhero comic in the universe, not just because it has characters like Dinosaurus (above), but also because of the moments like the pages below...

start the day off Right w/ Nasty Nas

Nas apparently has a new album in the pipe. Here's the first single.

Sam L Jackson reads you the REALEST Children's book EVER!!!

I can only assume this children's book Go the F**k to Sleep, by Adam Mansbach, with illustrations by Ricardo Cortés is the biggest internet smash ever, seeing as everyone I know has been rolling over it for a minute. Now, here's the audio version, read to you by that bad muthfucka Sam L Jackson...

start the day off Right w/Akua Naru

This chick got the world rapped up in her locks, fam! Listen...

NEW VIDEO- "Rap Money" By the Co-Op

MoNey Stax and The Rapture, known collectively as Conscience Operations (or The Co-Op for those who don't like the big words) are here with the video for their new single, Rap Money...

IN STORES NOW- Queen Sonja # 17

The Villain is in the building! Doom (Thulsa, not MF or Victor Von) has returned from the dead to give everybody's favorite redheaded warrior queen a run for her money. Empowered by the evil god Set to carry out a doomsday rite a thousand years in the making, Thulsa Doom is looking to kick a sister while she's down! Get ready for some sword and sorcery in the manner of the true masters from trustworthy and hard-writing scribe Arvid Nelson (Thulsa Doom, Zero Killer, Kull, Rex Mundi). Peep the preview below...

Total Recall 2 (sorta...)

I had no idea that Dynamite Entertainment had scooped up the comicbook rights to the awesome Arnold Scharzenegger film Total Recall, but here you can clearly see they have returned to the chronicles of Douglas Quaid (formerly known as Hauser... watch the movie!), who has saved the people of Mars from that cold-hearted bastard Cohaagen and hooked up with the hot and racially ambiguous Melinda! But there's no time for happily ever after, as this new four issue Total Recall miniseries picks up where the movie left off...

Speaking of Sanford Greene...

Mef Designs by Sanford Greene...

start the day off Right w/ Open Mike Eagle

Peace fam... Here's some fire from your man Open Mike Eagle.

3 Reasons why YOU need to buy Dark Horse Presents #2

I didn't buy the first issue of Dark Horse Presents that featured the debut of new multi-part serials by Neal Adams (his cover art on the left) and Richard Corben (two creators I've loved for decades), and an interview and sneak peak at Frank Miller's prequel comic (soon to be movie) Xerxes... but I still have a few REALLY good reasons why I GOTTA cop #2, and frankly, you should too...

OGN Preview: The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury: Time Runs Out


 I can't remember when I bought The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury #295, but what I CAN remember is that my first reaction to it was pure jealousy! Brandon Thomas and Lee Ferguson perfectly crafted a sci-fi superhero tale that felt ground-breaking and nostalgic at the same time, starring a who's looks just like my sister Carla, and just happens to be the greatest hero in the universe. Damn. Why didn't I think of that...
Anyways, I never was able to track down #236, but now the whole (?) story is getting collected in a 175 page Hardcover and here's a MASSIVE preview for you!

start the Day off RIGHT w/Jake One, Freeway & Brother Ali

I been banging the mess out of this song The Truth by Jake One f/Freeway and Brother Ali at work for the last few days...

New teeshirt designs by Nat Landry

 Looks like my ninja Nat Landry (Bring the Pain Jermaine) is getting into the teeshirt game. Here's a couple designs he posted yesterday...

Start the Day off Right w/Aesop Rock

I never got around to buying Aesop Rock's 2007 album None Shall Pass, but I need to get it... I spent some time pouring through some youTubery from the record, and it's all good stuff. Case in point, peep this video for Pigs which also features Aesop's album cover artist Jeremy Fish painting a SWEET mural... and because I am a man of and for the people, I threw in the official video for the title track too...

Start the day off Right w/ the mighty Pharoahe Monch & Styles P

Styles P demonstrates his other talent besides rhyming in this video is off Pharoahe's album WAR (We Are Renegades)

PREVIEW- Starborn #7

 Your boy Khary (like "Atari") Randolph continues to brow beat the pencils on Stan Lee's super-sci-fi joint Starborn. Peep...

Official video: "Ya Heard" by Playdough

Okay, so I just added this to my "At Work" playlist...

Have some Dirt, won't you?

This is my boy Dirt. He's even more loveable when he raps...

In Stores Now- Shinku: Throne of Blood pt 1

I'm not sure what motivated Ron Marz 'nem to drop damn near the whole contents of Shinku #1 on CBR, but I sure appreciate it!

PREVIEW- Black Panther: Man Without Fear #519

 I haven't been paying very close attention since Black Panther took over Daredevil's book in Black Panther: Man Without Fear #513, but as a dude who grew up idolizing Spider-Man and who has become a fan of T'challa the Panther, this is the (re) match-up I've been waiting on...

Consequence gets Nerdcore on you...

Your boy Consequence's is reaching out to my demographic to buy his upcoming album with this song Comic Book Flow...
