My FAVORITE comic right now: PREZ by Mark Russell, Ben Caldwell, Mark Morales, and Jeremy Lawson from @DCCOMICS

 I was asked recently what my favorite comic was, and at the time, I had only read the first issue of PREZ- the unlikely rise of nineteen year old fast food worker Beth Ross to the highest political office in America- but it was still the best comic I was reading. Now that issue three is in stores, I'd say this hilarious satire of politics, celebrity, and social media culture is still the best comic I'm reading now.  Check out some sample pages from each of the first three joints...

"I'm a work in progress. Came a long way from the jerk in the projects." @SeanPrice #riP!

My Twitter bredren Snake Plisskin dropped this Sean Price joint on my timeline a couple days ago. Also, I've been thinking of Simonson ever since I drew that Black Panther vs Thor joint for Jack Kirby's born day. Also Sean Price drops a Thor reference in Haraam, which I also posted because this is GhettoManga, son...

Help me wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to legendary Chicago emcee PROFOUND, by checking out his new video & album!

Today in observance of Chicago-based emcee Profound's bornday, peep his new video Heart of the Streetz (w/ a sick beat by NO ID), the first single off his album 4DaLove.

That dude Sean Mack supplied art for this hilarious low budget live action superhero spoof BLACK ANGUS

Malik Matthews was not much of a man, and when he gets superpowers, he's not much of a superhero, either. But the origin/debut episode of Black Angus -the low budget webseries that will follow the exploits of this plain-clothes crime fighter- is a hilarious parody of superhero tropes seasoned with hip hop style and irreverence.

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...

Did I mention there's a "Legend of the Mantamaji" Live Action Short? 'Cause there is...

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

This BROTHERMAN:REVELATIONS promo vid gave me a shot in the arm!

Guy A. Sims, Dawud Anyabile and Brian McGee are getting their dream team on if this video is any indication of the level of post-medicinal dope we can expect from their upcoming original graphic novel Brotherman: Revelations...

CLICK HERE to start your "BIONIC SIX" Binge

Yes, there really is a youTube Channel dedicated to the eighties super-hero cartoon Bionic Six. For all you youngsters, Bionic Six was about a multicultural family of cybernetically enhanced superheroes, the world's only hope against greasy fat megalomaniac Doctor Scarab and his league of super-powered henchmen.

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...

This #GrownManRap interlude brought to you by @Printmatic

After spending the evening handling some business at my homeboy's crib, we were building and destroying over pizza and fresh raps when this video for Perspective by Columbus, Ohio based micro mogul Blueprint came on...

"The Nib" on Kickstarter? Yeah, that's great... Wait!!! Did you say RON WIMBERLY?!?!?

The Nib is pretty great, and I think you should back their Kickstarter for their sweet anthology EAT MORE COMICS, but I'm too busy to pitch it to you. However, I do have just enough time to post these pages by number one ninja in the chain of command D-pi (look for him on your 2016 Presidential primary ballots as Ron Wimberly). Also, the folks at The Nib made a video or something...

This album will drag you kicking and screaming into your future by acknowledging your past.

"All you need is within you.The legacy continues.
My spirit will not die.
It's like the Force that's in the Ginyu..."

Breaking the first two rules of FIGHT CLUB 2...

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.

30 Minute (yeah right) Drawing- "Cloak and Dagger" by @SamaxAmen

So I'm still doing that 30 Minute Sketch Sale, but I admit I totally went overboard on this drawing of Cloak & Dagger that I did for Brian Cole...

Hey! I didn't know @SonnyLiew was drawing @DCcomics' new DR. FATE series!

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!

"I'm tryin'a send my babies to college, While you rappers' babies sift through yo pockets..." @MethodMan

I wasn't terribly impressed with this animated trailer for The Meth Lab, the upcoming album from Method Man, but that doesn't mean I don't smell what the Ticallion Stallion is cookin'. Stream the animated trailer, the title cut, and a dope promo track below...

That dude @JamarNicholas updates you on the LEON GN, AWESOMECON, STUDIO BLACKBOSS and more...

l to r Patrick Strange, Jamal Igle, Jamar, Jeremy Whitley & Gabrial Canada
The mighty Jamar Nicholas sent an update out to all us long-suffering backers of LEON: PROTECTOR OF THE PLAYGROUND, and I'm sharing an excerpt with you, because that's how I roll:

You had me at "E is for Exctinction"...

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!

When Top Cow dropped this inventive action thriller 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...

Before I start talking shit about Marvel... Sanford Greene + Runaways = Forgiveness Unlocked

 I'm so easy... Somebody hit Marvel on the head with a rock or something and now they are hiring all my favorite people to make their books. To my point, Sanford Greene is drawing the secret war-world reboot of  Runaways...

Okay... I officially fux with THE TITHE! @TopCow is getting it DONE right now!

 I saw this cover to The Tithe #2 on the stands when I wandered into my comic shop late Wednesday evening, and after being welcomed by the familiar quote from the Old Testament book of Malachi (the one about giving offerings), I couldn't resist its charms.  On one side of The Tithe we follow the Samaritans, a band of tech-savvy crusaders who rob Mega-churches of the loot they fleece from their followers. On the other, FBI agent Dwayne Campbell (above) and his task force are trying to catch them.
Here's some preview pages from the first couple issues 

The second-to-last issue Greg Pak's STORM solo comic is in stores now. And it looks AWESOME!

Okay, so STORM is definitely going away after issue twelve, along with a bunch of other books ahead of the big Marvel Secret Wars thing (don't ask...). I'm not sure if the plan is to bring STORM back for a new number one, but I know my vote...
Anyways, here's a preview of STORM #11...

"Black Dynamite and Boondocks were great but it's time to leave Earth..." @LeSeanThomas

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.

"Plot thickens: Only @IronHelmet when the mask's on. Slim Pickens' spittin's finger-lickin'..."

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...

Best Garnet Fan Art EVER!!!!

Thanks to this crazy sexy cool Garnet fan art by Fydbac, I decided that I needed and deserved a Steven Universe binge...

Any of you folks reading "Princeless: Raven the Pirate Princess"? Because it looks DOPE!

 Just realized it's been way too long since I mentioned PRINCELESS, which follows the further adventures of self-rescuing princess Adriene and friends. Here's a preview from Princeless: Raven the Pirate Princess #2...

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..."
