My name is Christopher Love and I am the creator of the Flying Bullet.
The concept of the photo novel came about due to my love for the old black and white sci-fi serials and films of 40s, 50s and 60s like Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, King of the Rocket Men and Son of Ingagi.
WHAT IF!!! there was a black and white photo novel starring an African American hero. I imagine the hero would be based on real African American heroes of that era. The Tuskegee Airmen were heroes of the highest caliber who fought discrimination and the right to defend a country that didn't always defend them.
So now I have my hero, LT Curt Masters, a Tuskegee Airman, who is kidnapped by a UFO and goes on the high octane sci-fi adventure and exploring what it is to be a man and a human being. The graphic novel will be drawn in Black and White to keep with its inspirational roots.
The reason I write and produce stories featuring ethnically diverse characters is because their are very little heroes in mainstream media that look like the rest of us. So I am creating a graphic novel called "The Flying Bullet" which will be a SCI-FI adventure dealing with a Tuskegee Airman being transported billions of mile away from Earth in 1945. This photo novel is a 100% classic science fiction story. I took the rich history of african americans and combined it with the science fiction genre. The story deals with the struggles of african americans to be counted as full citizens of the United States in defense of their country during WWII. Curt Master soons discovers that the planet Earth is entangled in a bigger intergalactic struggle.
Soon Heroes Like Me Entertainment will produce original, low-budget, short films in the action, adventure and sci-fi genre starring everyone. I'm not asking for a hand-out but an opportunity to market the films to cable companies like TV-One, BET, SCI-FI Channel, Nickelodeon, and others networks or distribute by DVD and Video download.

I believe that everyone deserves heroes that look like them.
