I'm appearing at the Black Age of Comics Convention



I'll be making my first ever appearance at The 6th Annual East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (ECBACC) on Friday, May 18 and Saturday, May 19, 2007, on Temple University's Main Campus in Philadelphia. In addition to being the home of the Glyph Awards, this convention has already become the creative and cultural center of the Black Comics movement.

Here's what the flier says.:

*Meet and network with comic book publishers, writers and artists.
*Find rare and unique comic books, Kid's Corner, professional workshops, lectures, marketplace and more.
*To get on the mailing list and more information email: Blackageofcomics@ecbacc.com


Other guests include Kyle Baker, Taimak (Berry Gordy's “The Last Dragon”), Bern Nadette Stanis (Thelma on “Good Times”), L.A. Banks (Vampire Huntress series), Jerry Craft (Mama's Boyz), Alex Simmons (Black Jack), William Foster (Finally in Full Color) Mshindo Kuumba I. (Illustrator).

As usual, I'll sign anything of mine you bring me. I'll probably also bring some overstock comics to sell. Any interest in autographed Milestone, Static Shock or Justice League scripts for, say, five bucks a pop?

TEEN TITANS Script, Sketches for Auction

Me and some of the guys from Teen Titans have donated a script for auction to raise funds for a group of comic book creators who did work for a low-life publisher, who has refused to pay them. I'll let the folks at the auction explain:




This item is donated by amazingly talented writer Dwayne McDuffie to help freelance comic creators struggling due to the unethical behavior of an immoral publisher. All proceed from this auction go towards helping those creators.

Check out www.unscrewedcomic.com for more details.

This is a very unique item. It's the original script from the Teen Titans episode "Fear Itself" featuring the first appearance of the fanboy villain Control Freak. This is script is signed by Dwayne McDuffie, Murakami, Wyatt, Youngberg, and Jones...who all worked on the episode. Wyatt, Youngberg, Jones, and Murakami also include sketches of Teen Titans characters, including Control Freak.


This is the first draft script, with scenes and dialog that didn't make it into the final show. If you're into Titans, or you just want justice for some badly-wronged comic book creators, go over to the auction and help these guys raise some money.

New Interview in Code Z

There's a new interview with me in CODE Z, the online magazine of Black visual culture. Unfortunately, this otherwise excellent article has photographs of me. On the downside, the author compares me to his grandfather. Also, I need a haircut.

I may have let slip the name of a new TV project I'm working on, I definitely give way too big a hint about my next comics project.
