About Me:
I've been into comics since I was a kid. First it was more about collecting the cards, sketching the pictures, and watching the cartoons. Now it's more about digging into the stories, characters, and themes. It's also still about the cartoons though, lol! As a Christian who's into comic books, I feel like there is a huge void to be filled in terms of telling stories about (super)heroes that focus on Christian principles and people of color.

In May 2009, I decided to step out on faith and start working on my own comic, called "Lightweightz." It's about eight teens in California who discover they have unique abilities. How will they use their abilities? Will they view them as a gift or a curse? In essence, Lightweightz addresses the following questions: What if we could significantly impact others' lives by how we treat them? To what extent is the way we view ourselves and our place in the world reflected in how we relate to others?

A few months later, I connected with a priest and graphic novelist Earnest Graham, and we agreed to create a comic/graphic novel about the life of the apostle Peter.

Both projects are progressing nicely, and you can learn more about them by visiting the blog: www.rscomicz.com.

Hey everyone,

I know our hearts were saddened this past weekend upon hearing about the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut and the stabbings in China. As we approach this holiday season and afterwards, please continue to keep the families of those affected, and their respective communities in your thoughts and/or prayers.

On the comic front, I have a couple of quick updates:

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

The Diversity Track & Black Science Fiction Society Back For Dragoncon 2019

I just got news this week that the Diversity Track will be back for 2019 at DragonCon. I'm excited to be invited back for another groundbreaking event. Everyone associated with the first one this year knocked it out of the park! I could not ask for better volunteers, guests, photographers, moderators and participants.

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since 1992....at San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

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.
