A Lovecraftian inspired horror noir story about the haunting ghosts from the past along with the ghosts from the forth coming future, the Gentleman finds himself drawn to Espere St. Lanmé, mysterious and alluring, seeking help and protection from a being of possibly supernatural origins. Unfortunately to protect her, Oliver must succumb to his special abilities, a hereditary curse that uses his body as a key and vessel to the Void, an ancient evil with the means to destroy all life as we know.

Can Oliver protect Espere without losing his humanity? And if he can, can she be trusted? What is her connection to Oliver and the Void itself?

Other Comics / My upcoming comic, Is'nana the Were-Spider
« on: January 14, 2016, 09:57:21 pm »
Hey, guys! Just wanted to post a link for the Kickstarter for my first comic book, Is'nana the Were-Spider! For just $5, you can get the PDF digital copy of the comic and $10 gets you the print.

Is'nana is a shape-shifting half man, half spider son of the great Anansi the Spider, The West African God of Stories. While looking for his missing father, Is'nana accidentally breaks a barrier coming into our world which unleashes horrors from his world and other realms into ours. Taking on the responsibility of rectifying this mishap, he teams up with his wise-cracking father to stop these horrors from bringing chaos into our world.





One of the main themes of Is'nana: The Were-Spider is the fear of being forgotten, whether it's not leaving a mark or impact in the world to being a forgotten legend of previously acclaimed status.

Growing up and having an interest in stories of the Africana Diaspora, I'm hoping this is the first of many stories I can produce in introducing many people to African and Black-based lore and characters that are unfortunately being passed on and in a sense forgotten. Rich characters that have so much potential for modern storytelling and will hopefully have a place today!



Here is the link to the Kickstarter. Even if you're unable to pledge, sharing and spreading the word would do so much!

DOMINIQUE LAVEAU: VOODOO CHILD is the story of a half-breed, outcast and heir to the Voodoo Queenship of New Orleans, if she can live long enough to claim her birthright. New Orleans is the most haunted city in America: a town of centuries-old ghosts and newly drowned spirits; where vampires, voodoo spirits and loups-garous make their home. Ruling over this all are the powerful Voodoo Queens, whose influence stretches into politics, business and crime as they maintain a delicate balance between the mortal and supernatural worlds.

But in the aftermath of Katrina, all that has changed, for someone or something has murdered the Voodoo Queen and most of her court. The number one suspect is Dominique Laveau, a grad student at Tulane who is about to discover that her entire life has been a lie. Now Dominique must forge alliances with those out to kill her while seeking to uncover the truth behind the royal murders, as she is ultimately forced to deal with a destiny she could never have imagined. Voodoo Child is a new monthly series written by Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, former editor-in-chief of The Source magazine, award-winning author, journalist and TV producer, with art by Milestone Media co-founder Denys Cowan (THE QUESTION) and covers by Rafael Grampá.

Sexuality / The Power of Homophobia Strikes Again

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Cops-Probe-West-Village-Anti-Gay-Attack-118904769.html?__source=Newsletter-Daily

By Jennifer Millman


The 26-year-old man severely beaten last weekend in what police are probing as a possible hate-crime said the "traumatic" attack was indicative of the larger issue of violence against gay and transgender people in the city.

"This has been a traumatic experience for me, my friends and my family," Damian Furtch, who was allegedly attacked by two men in the West Village early Sunday, said in a statement. "This has to stop. Under no circumstance should a person be attacked for their sexual orientation."

After finishing work at the nearby Pink Tea Cup Restaurant in the West Village, Furtch and his pal  ordered food at the McDonald's on Sixth Avenue around 4:30 a.m., when two men allegedly began to hassle them as they waited for their orders.

Leery of stares from the two men, Furtch says he stepped outside the fast-food spot to make a phone call "in an effort to avoid the tension in the restaurant and remove myself from the situation," according to a prepared statement.

Furtch said he told one of the men he stepped out to make a call and had no problem with him. That's when, according to Furtch's statement, the second man hit him on the side of his face, forcing him to stumble.

"Then I felt three punches to the face," Furtch said.


After the attack, Furtch said he stumbled back into the McDonald's and told his friend they needed to go to the hospital because he had been assaulted. The friends rushed to Roosevelt Hospital, where Furtch says he received medical attention.

Earlier, Furtch posted pictures of his bruised, bloodied swollen face on Facebook and commented on his wall: "I thought I was safe in the city I loved but apparently wearing fluorescent colored clothing and pink shoelaces really bother some f-----g a--holes to blind side me and hit me."

Those photos have since been removed.

Furtch also previously indicated on his Facebook profile that he had to get four stitches.

Cops are still looking for the alleged attackers. One of the suspects reportedly has a large tattoo of a Gothic cross under his left eye.

Furtch said he wants to work with community groups to raise visibility around the issue of anti-gay violence in New York.

Police have heightened their attention to potential hate-crime investigations after a spate of anti-gay attacks across the five boroughs in recent months. At least one teenager has died as a result of what investigators believe to be a hate-crime beating.

Earlier this month, 18-year-old Anthony Collao, of Queens, was jumped and viciously beaten with a metal pipe after attending a birthday party over the weekend. Police think Collao was targeted because his attackers thought he was gay; the teenager's friends say he wasn't gay, but the men hosting the birthday party were openly gay. Collao died March 14 after being taken off life support.

Cops arrested five suspects in connection with the Collao investigation. They face manslaughter and assault charges.

Black Panther / Tribute Video I made
« on: March 19, 2011, 08:02:13 am »
Made this back in January. Was a bit bored and did this for fun and editing practice. Towards the middle, I took out about two frames so some of the clips go off rhythm than what I hoped, but whatever. Hope you like.

Other Comics / My character, Jeremy Tableau
« on: December 23, 2010, 05:48:55 am »
Hey, guys. This is my character I've been working on for about a year or so now. His name is Jeremy Tableau and he's based on the African-American trickster archetype so he's cocky, sly, sarcastic, sexual. He's known as the Black Sheep among the magic community (known as the UnderUnderworld). He's a bit of a trouble maker and just likes to have fun and goes on adventures as he's a thrill seeker. He'd also get himself into trouble just to see how he'll get out of it. He's also "entangled" in the world of Vodou and other Caribbean/African based myths with some Greek. I've written a few scripts for the character over at penciljack.com as a means and way of developing his voice and world he inhabits.

Below are some pics some folks have done for me of the character. Hope you like.

If any other artist would like to do a piece for me, by all means! I'd highly really appreciate it!  ;D ;D ;D

Screen caps of my film I shot earlier this semester. Worked hard on this film and am very excited thus far of the product and how it's coming out. Still have a few ways to go before fully finished, sound and animation being the big final touches.   ;D

In the recent issue of The Spirit (#8), David Hine and Moritat introduce us to Mrs. Ophelia Ottoman-Bauhaus.



I believe this may be the very first black femme fetale for the Spirit!

Other Comics / Azrael
« on: July 24, 2010, 05:54:33 am »
David Hine is the new writer and it's a damn good solid jumping point! I enjoyed #10 it a lot. I didn't like the first issue of the series but I enjoyed this and would like to see what else I missed as I feel the mythos introduced in this one issue was really solid and interesting.

Michael Lane is a bad-ass, loved his intro to the story. And the villain gets sh*t done! For those looking for an interesting story with a black lead published by DC, this book may be it.



AZRAEL #10
