My name is Tya Keith. I am a comic creator of BLACK descent bent on putting out my own comic books with the help of publishers or not! A ream of paper. A box of pencils. A box of ink pens. One HUGE eraser! That's what it took to build PENDEKA PRESS. That was back in 2007. Since then, I've collaborated with several creators, come up with 15 comic titles, and created almost 100 superheroes, mostly out of REAL PEOPLE! Good deals of these heroes are BLACK! I started my 2nd ream of paper creating my first children's book, RED VELVET. She is a black female superhero that can fly! I am dedicated to finishing this 2nd ream to the end and seeing where it will lead. I have to thank all of my friends on the internet that I have made along the way for the inspiration and motivation. I was a diehard comic collector who dreamed of being a creator someday when I was young. I must admit with great sorrow: These days, the dollar value of comics doesn't match the entertainment value. I collected comics when I was young. NOW, they have become a lot like Christmas: It is all commercial! I remember when comics were fun. Now, it's all based on, sales, percentages, standards, and stats! They were no longer like baseball back in the day: done just for the love of the game. Thus, I stopped collecting comics. I figured if I wanted good comics, make my own! That, combined with the internet, PENDEKA PRESS was born! I decided to make comics fun again. How, do you ask: By turning real people on the internet into superheroes? In the beginning, I would convert my "victims" either against their will or without their knowledge. Yet, once they saw the results, they all accepted their fates whole- heartedly. Some of the names, colors of costumes, and even the powers my friends chose sometimes might not be up to snuff with what people who create or read comics would accept. WHO CARES! It's entertainment, for Pete's sake! That's what comics are! It's not about sales, percentages, standards, and stats! It's a chance for people to escape, explore, dream, fantasize, and make believe. It's the way comics were meant to be: FUN! What makes PENDEKA PRESS COMICS so great: They are fueled by the "READER'S" imagination!

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora? How are black bodies presented in graphic comics and novels? Finally, how are themes of social justice specific to black communities presented in this…

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.
