From the writers who have gotten their hands on powerful black males, the only two I've seen who've done a decent job is the creator of Blue Marvel, and the creator of Val Zod. Other than that, from the content I've read from the big 2, it's been very subpar to grade A horrible.
    It's not their job to be that.

    If the big two don't want to do it, you go to who does.
    You build them up and that forces the others to do better. In theory anyway.

    The Big 2 like Tyler Perry get away with stuff because too many folks live and die by a BRAND name. So they know they can get away with crap because it will be defended.
    We hear ALL these complaints from the Black Panther in name only book to castrated Cyborg to forever in the background Storm and so on.

    Yet when folks try to suggest INDY books-they get laughed at.

    Titan Comics has 2 books with black male leads (at one point 3)-Rivers of London is over 60 issues.
    Vault Comics has black male leads in some books including a horror comic-Creature Features & The Mall
    Aftershock has done at least 5.
    Image has had a few.
    Mindcraft has done one.
    Boom just put out The Man who F****ed up Time last week.
    I can go to Barnes & Nobles and get about 10.

    They have all done better than DC.
    If DC let alone Marvel can't see that-whose issue is it?

    Not ours.

    Here here.

    It's a long game also. Dawud Anyabwile created Brotherman back in 1991 for the same reasons and It hooked me back in the day. It was the first Indie I ever went looking for.

    Also if one feels a live action movie or streaming series is the expected final form then that may not always be the creators end goal so expectations can and should be adjusted.

    Again, not my original point. As an soon to be INDY publisher myself, I know all about us showing the representation that's desperately needed within the industry. But us getting the job done does not mean we stop giving criticism towards those in
    industry who pull subpar to horrible criteria. Everyone needs to be held accountable to the content that their putting out. Writers
    who can't write POC characters right shouldn't be given a pass just because there are other writers who can.

    So if DC and Marvel can't get their writing straight when it comes to handling powerful POC characters, they deserve to get called out for it, not ignored because other writers can handle powerful POC characters.

    Close enough in theory to fantasize about though right. On the high end it's pretty cock-tease adjacent. Yet on the low end it look like that insurance commercial, "whoop, almost had it there" and ya never really did at all. Hal mthafkn Jordan though, still has A-1 credit and plenty of backing to keep taking bites of that apple it seems.

    Woulda' coulda' been dope though, I mean personally I'd prefer Icon and Rocket on HBO, man... I prefer to anchor those types of daydreams, sky being the limit for my counterparts and all. Icon though, he was more an elephant leaning brotha (least that's the form he took) but that was a Reagan/Bush era Republican. I don't know that Icon would still be team Red in Trump America. Rocket and hims prolly couldn't work out them same uhh differences, like they did back in the early 90's.

    Anyway, even if I did get a Milestone/DC/HBO Max project I feel more than likely it would start strong, peak and then conclude as lame as Watchmen did.

    Glad they included Christopher Priest in this, though they didn't mention he was also one of the original founders (and also designed the Milestone logo).

    If they throw the book at him he'll get 1 and a 1/2 years in County.

    Which really means 10 months in the system.

    Queen of Katwe Actor Nikita Pearl Waligwa Is Dead at 15

    Nikita Pearl Waligwa, a Ugandan actor who appeared in Disney’s 2016 Mira Nair-directed film Queen of Katwe, has died. She was 15.

    The New York Times reports that the cause was brain cancer. Waligwa had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016, and after a brief recession, doctors found the cancer had spread. Waligwa’s school, Gayaza High School in Kampala, Uganda, announced her death on Twitter on Sunday.

    Did any of you guys pick up the book "Tartarus," by Johnnie Christmas from Image comic?
    He also wrote Firebug and co-wrote Angel Catbird.
    The book is amazing in my opinion with a East of West/Incal vibe and it's written by a black man.
    The first issue is 5.99 for 44 pages of story and it was worth the money.
    I'm posting an interview about the series at the top.

    Also out this week is "On the Stump," by Chuck Brown, "Lucy Claire Redemption," by John Upchurch, and the return of "Bitter Root," by David Walker, Chuck Brown Sanford Greene.
    Plus "Bang," From Dark Horse comics by Matt Kindt and Wilfredo Torres.

    Five potentially great books by writers/artist of color, from this week and last.
