If you missed my announcement from earlier this month, check out this trailer for tomorrow’s event! I can’t wait to discuss Marvel Comics of the 1990s with such an illustrious panel of guests!
I am SO excited for Aug. 28th! I’ll be sitting down for a virtual discussion with unsung creators of Marvel Comics, Marcus McLaurin, Gregory Wright, and D.G. Chichester. This trio had a hand writing/editing characters like Luke Cage, Daredevil, Deathlok, Silver Sable and more! I’m happy we’ll have a chance to explore this era of comic book history and their particular corner of the Marvel Universe. Missing will be creator, Dwayne McDuffie, who passed in 2011 and ask you consider donating to the Dwayne McDuffie Foundation, a non-profit organization looking to establish academic scholarships for diverse students.

One way my parents got me interested in reading was by buying me comic books. Comic books quickly inspired me to draw, leading to a developing interest in art, to become a professional artist, and later on, a teacher. I learned a lot through comic books: history, geography, fair play, equal rights, classical mythology, even foreign languages. Popular publishers, Marvel Comics and DC Comics, publish terrific books directed to young children and I urge educators and parents alike to check them out.
