#KickstartThis dope science hero action comic "STRONGHOLD: HOPE IS NOT YET LOST"

I get a lot of "help me spread the word about my Kickstarter campaign" emails. A LOT of them! Even though many of them are very cool, I don't have time to post about them here, so a facebook drop or Tweet is about all the help I can muster. However, STRONGHOLD by Kevin Roberts and Brian Visaggio is SO dope that I just HAD to post a preview here on GhettoManga...

the Brand New Old School Video Show: GOLD TIPS by Playdough & DJ Sean P(atrick)

I been listening to a lot of old-school stuff lately, so when I saw the video for the title track off Playdough and Sean's new album Gold Tips,  I felt right at home...

I can't stop listening to the classic Nas/Jay-Z collabo "Black Republican"...

I really ought to be asleep right now, but instead I'm blasting the holy hell out of that "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" anthem Black Republican by Nas and Jay-Z.

#nowPlaying "CPR: The Blend Tape" by Gods Illa, hosted by @fatbellybella aka Erykah Badu aka DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown

My apologies to any of my friends that may have tried to put me onto Gods'illa only to be unjustly ignored. I'm late, but dammit, I'm here...

Massive shouts to GhettoManga contributor, cartoonist, illustrator, activist and muralist Robert TRES Trujillo, who just dropped some new art prints. We encourage you to cop some of his stuff. He's got the goods...

"Pops disappeared, nigga taught me magic. My idea of fun growing up was doing bad shit" -@iamStickyFingaz #WakeDaFucUp

Sigh... I just had a birthday a couple weeks ago, and according to the candle count, I'm way too old to be this excited about beatdown rap, but dammit this is ONYX! So, yeah...

"Like she can tell a cock tale better than molotav..." @PharoaheMonch lol

The homie Salem Psalms (Amond Jackson if you nasty) dropped this video he directed for the mighty Pharoahe Monch and the venerable Diamond D a couple days ago, but I just saw it now, cause I been busy drawing stuff for money. Peep...

#nowPlaying "Rappers got stylists cause they can't think for themselves. See they don't have an identity so they needed some help" -Tyler

To my fellow old-head hip hoppers: Please stop all that "rappers today can't rhyme" isht. It's embarrassing.

"Prince of Cats" character doodles by Ron Wimberly, plus "Prince of Cats" fan art by Chase Conley

I saw this sketch by D-pi (or as President Obama calls him, " Secretary of Defness, Ron Wimberly") of Balthazar, Ibrahim and Benvolio from his GhettoManga Award-winning Shakespearean hip hop graphic novel Prince of Cats and had to share it...

Corey Lewis leaks new SUNBAKERY cover and teases new Metroid tribute comic!


Over the weekend, Corey Lewis (Sharknife, Peng, Layered Jacket) leaked this cover image of his eagerly-awaited and Kickstarter-funded anthology Sunbakery in a backer update. 

In stores now MIGHTY AVENGERS #8

I haven't been following Mighty Avengers, the Marvel Now book with Luke Cage, Power Man (Jr), Blue Marvel, Spectrum (Monica Rambeau, formerly Captain Marvel and Photon), the White Tiger, etc on it... but this preview of number 8 looks pretty dope.

"I'm as dope as the era they introduced the needle, you're an Optimus Prime versus this Magneto" -Joey the Bull

Dallas rap dude Joey the Bull dropped this posse cut Make Way by Flotation (featuring Fever, Joey The Bull and Molekular, with cuts by Tape Mastah Steph) on the GhettoManga Facebook wall a few days ago, but I just got around to listening to it today. The short version: It's dope. Stream and/or download it below.

Preview art- ALL NEW GHOST RIDER #1 & 2!!!

We've been getting a mixed reaction to Marvel's impending release All-New Ghost Rider by Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore, ranging from "Muscle car instead of motor cycle: No bueno" to "fugg yeah." Peep some previews of Tradd Moore's pages (plus variant covers by Felipe Smith, Skottie Young, and more) below and make up your own mind...

"We upset cause these rappers make it seem like we lame, cause we grind a 9 to 5 instead of slangin cocaine" -@DaShade

Our favorite rap nerd, Da'shade Moonbeam brings that real shit once again, 'longside Mr. Cannon on the strings...

The new MOON KNIGHT series by Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey looks HARD!

Our Facebook peeps showed interest in the new Warren Ellis-penned Moon Knight series, and since we are suckers for the changing faces of Marvel's derivative dark knight detective, here's a preview of the Moon Knight #1.

peep some SWEET Olivier Coipel cover art to "SURVIVE #1", plus variant cover and interior sequentials by Joe Quinones

If I win the lottery, I will buy Marvel and then force Olivier Coipel to draw all the books. Don't worry, with my unlimited lottery cash, I will change the laws of spacetime so he doesn't have to rush. Anyways, until then, here's a cover he drew to the Ultimate Comics book Survive #1. I likes it...

Half-black, half-Dragon, ALL SAVAGE!!!! Or something like that...

Starting with the current issue of Savage Dragon, the starring role is being taken over by Dragon's bi-racial son Malcolm. True to form, Erik Larsen handles the politics of race as only he can...

What are your thoughts on Felipe Smiith and Tradd Moore's ALL NEW GHOST RIDER designs?

Here's a shiteload of pre-production art for Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore's upcoming All New Ghost Rider comic. Besides the fact that his civilian persona Robbie Reyes is obviously based on my west-coast homie and GhettoManga contributor Eric M. Esquivel (Blackest Terror, Thor:Unkillable Thunderchrist, FREELANCERS, Loki: Ragnarok and Roll), what do you think of the direction the latest incarnation of Marvel's revanent road warrior?

I drew @BavuBlogs again...

Hip Hop Grew Up by Samax Amen

#nowWatching that "One" video by the mighty SubKulture Patriots! #AustinHipHop

I was drawing and listening to randon empeethrees when this track One by Austin-based rap massive SubKulture Patriots came on. A quick YouTube search revealed they made a video to this joint. Ooooh snap...

#nowPlaying @ActionBronson and Statik Selektah "Well Done" mixtape.

Action Bronson (sketch) by Samax
Yeah... I came across a youTube link for Well Done, the mixtape by Queens-based emcee Action Bronson and Statik Selektah this morning and was feeling it. One thing lead to another and before the record was over, I had banged out a 30 minute sketch of Bronson...

"NJ to UK. Clientelle Massive..." @RealKingRA (from that new cartoon Sci Fi Stu video "Breaking Bad", animated by @GOODIDEAstyle)

It wouldn't come as a surprise to find out that I like animated hip hop videos.  I was excited to find out that the new Sci Fi Stu-produced joint Breaking Bad (featuring Jersey growler King RA) debuted on YouTube this morning. Peep...

In Stores Now- "SAGA #18" by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples

We didn't do a GhettoManga Awards list for 2013, but if we had, there's a pretty good chance that Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples's genre-bending science fiction fantasy  SAGA would have won for Comicbook of the Year. Check out this preview of  the latest issue...

Preview a couple more of Dynamite's "JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS" comics in stores today

Obviously, Dynamite Entertainment has more sense than Walt Disney Pictures. Disney gave their 2012 adaptation of A Princess of Mars the lack-luster title John Carter, while Dynamite gives their comics exploring the Barsoom series of novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs titles like Warlord of Mars and Dejah Thoris and the Green Men of Mars. You know, titles that might actually make one want to check them out...

IN STORES TODAY- Adventure Time 2014 Winter Special

Just when you thought there was no upside to the polar vortex, global colding and other assorted winter bee ess, (ka)BOOM drops the Adventure Time 2014 Winter Special to warm your hearts and hearths. Peep...

New TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES pages by @RossCampbelll

We're obviously champions of creator-owned indie comics here at GhettoManga... but there is something special about watching a creator get the chance to work on a property they truly love. After years of interacting with Ross Campbell (Wet Moon, Shadoweyes) on the internet, I know Ross LOVES the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so it is especially cool to watch him illustrate the Turtles on this IDW book.
