MCM Comic Con London Picture Perfect Panel

It has been 2 and a half years since I’ve attended a con. Before the pandemic the last con I was planning to attend is MCM Comic Con May in 2020. It is only right that it’s the con I make my return to. I am lucky enough to also be hosting a panel with 4 other creatives. Details of the panel are below.  They say a good picture is worth a thousand words and one of the most common goals in the world of cosplay is to create amazing images. This requires effort on all sides: the photographer who captures the image; the compositor who provides effects; the creative… Read More

I am Still with Kaepernick

Drew Brees pissed me off to a new level yesterday. The NFL is preparing to play a season filled with black players during a pandemic that is disproportionately affecting black players. The players have power. It is time to be a collective and use it. Sacrifices must be made. The NFL is full of owner billionaires with connections and influence on political levels including law enforcement. Force the owners to cancel their million dollar contracts with local law enforcement until there is reform. Force them to stop contributing millions of dollars to politicians that don’t care about black lives or ending these atrocities. They benefit from the blood, sweat and… Read More

Burning Down the Old Narrative

#RepresentationMatters. My entire life the vast majority of the time there was a single Black character that was barely part of the story, was never integral, and was either only there to die in service of the white characters, for comedic relief, to dance, or to just silently represent tokenism as if they were a broken and forgotten manakin that some (actually important) white character once called a “friend”, or simply managed to put up with the presence of, in a previous scene. And somehow, to this day in 2021, the presence of said useless manakin proves all the white people involved in the movie are… *not*… racists. The only… Read More

Falcon and the Winter Soldier Review

“They would never let a Black man be Captain America. And even if they did, no self-respecting Black man would ever want to be.” America is racist. The writer of the show clearly knew this. It was obvious from the beginning that race was going to be a key subject in this series. We first see Sam giving up the shield and being told he was doing the right thing a a white man. As a Black man it was clear to see that Sam was pressured into giving the shield up as the country was not ready for a Black Captain America. It is a privilege not to have… Read More
