Alan Moore v Frank Miller - What's the Politics of your Comics?

My own take: Why barely veiled racialized, right-wing claptrap like 300 can't compare to visionary works like V for Vendetta or Watchmen.With the Occupy movement, it seems you and Frank Miller have…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
Afro-Caribbean-American writer of speculative fiction. Raised on genres of fantasy, sci fi, horror and the supernatural, I felt a need for more diverse tales with more diverse characters drawn from more diverse sources. To that end, I put pen to pad and fingers to keyboard, seeking to Imagine, Dream and Create new realms to explore.

I saw this in the theater in Brooklyn, in the hood cinema (Court St!), so it was a hilarious experience of talk and response to the screen from the audience.Since then I've had numerous conversations about the flick, the role of black characters, and more--including a few on this forum. It's been fun…

Assassination Attempt 1

Posted on October 8, 2010 at 12:32am 4 Comments

Shabu-Bakmen walked along the palace grounds, hands clasped behind his back. As usual of late he was not happy. He passed through the royal grounds casting an eye to a gardener who jumped at his sudden appearance. His brow furrowed at the man’s actions. The whole palace behaved this way now.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
