In the wee hours of the morning DC Comics blanketed any one who “Likes” Marvel Comics with their timeline for upcoming films. I was having a bit of insomnia, and happened to catch it in my peripheral vision, while posting “Happy Birthday” to friends on Facebook.
Billy Graham was a Black comic-book artist best known for his work on the Marvel Comics series Luke Cage, Hero for Hire, and Jungle Action featuring Black Panther. In this post The Museum of UnCut Funk exhibits some of Graham’s other work like Vampirella , Eerie #31 and Journey in to Mystery #2.
The hip talk, cool threads and big afros of the Blaxploitation movie craze crossed over into 1970’s comics books, resulting in the creation of a number of new characters like Luke Cage. Cage, the most recognizable character from this period, was a cool, fly, down to earth brother from the hood who always tried to do the right thing. Swagger, style, a way with the ladies and an ass kickin’ for the man. He was the complete badass package.
