I’m Aaron Nabus and on behalf of my co-host, Alex Benedicto, thank you for tuning into the Hall H Show podcast!
Black Comix Day 2018, an event organized by Keithan Jones, brought together black comic book creators from around the U.S. for a special one day comic convention that took place on Saturday, February, 17, 2018 at the Malcolm X Library, in San Diego, CA. This event coincided with the opening weekend of the Black Panther movie and Black History Month and highlighted the importance of black comic book creators.
One of the creators, writer Greg Anderson-Elysée, and the creator of the comic book Is’nana The Were-Spider, traveled all the way from New York and was in San Diego for the first time, so we had to get him on the podcast before he flew back – which we recorded as the library was starting to close for the day.
It was great to meet this independent creator and star on the rise and we look forward to connecting with him again in the future.
In celebration of Black History Month 2018, Greg has a 25% OFF special for Is’nana The Were-Spider, Volume 1, which will end on February 28, 2018. If you’re interested, please email him at IsnanaMail@gmail.com.
We hope you enjoy our conversation with Greg and don’t forget to support black creators and other people of color because representation does matter.
About Is’nana The Were-Spider:
Accidentally breaking a barrier between our world and theirs (called THE MOTHER KINGDOM), Is’nana, the son of Anansi (The West African God of Spiders) accepts the responsibility for releasing creatures of horror into our world, villains who want nothing more but to cause chaos and mayhem to achieve their own diabolical or selfish goals. With guidance from his father, Is’nana not only strives to live up to his father’s name but to also reach his own potential while he seeks to discover his individuality and place in the world (from Amazon description).
Thanks again for listening to this recording of this very important panel. Again…please go buy comics from black creators and support events like Black Comix Day 2018!
