Sista ToFunky co hosted the 2014 Glyph Comics Awards at the African American Museum in Philadelphia. What a great night honoring Independent Comic Book creators, artists and writers of color. Congratulations to the 2014 Glyph Comics Awards Winners.
I had the pleasure of meeting Soyinka at this year’s ECBACC event and I invited her to join our Aesthetic Grooves family. I hope you enjoy reading about Soyinka and support her work.
Do you know your Black Superheroes? Well, now you have no excuse not to. Welcome to AfriCoz: the first costume and cosplay contest celebrating characters of African descent in comic books, sci-fi, fantasy and film!
Do You Feel like Black Comic Books and their creators could use more recognition?
I am extremely honored to have recently been named as the new chairperson of The Glyph Comics Awards Committee (GCA). I would like to thank Rich Watson, the original chair and founder of GCA as well as the East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (ECBACC) for this amazing opportunity. I am looking forward to working with this prestigious award program and the ECBACC.
I met Jabaar Borwn when I attended ECBACC earlier this year. We talked for a while and Jabaar was so energetic and passionate about his craft that I wanted to introduce him to our readers. I found his stories to be engaging and wanted to read more. I recommend you pick up a copy of one of his comics. It’s worth the read.
I met Jerome Walford at the Bronx Heroes Comic Con and ran into him again at the East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (ECBACC), where we discussed his Nowhere Man character. I then spent some time on his website and I knew that I wanted to share his work with our visitors. I think you will really enjoy getting to know Jerome and Nowhere Man.
I took these pictures during my visit to ECBACC, where I was a judge for their first annual AfriCoz costume contest.
