Black Webcomic Creators--Holla Back!!!

Where my dogs at?! February being Black History Month, I was just wondering who are the black webcomic creators around here and what comics are they creating. So, black webcomic creators tell us a bit about yourself, your comic, and leave a link. I'm Darryl Hughes aka "TheDeeMan". I'm a freelance writer from New York City and the writer/creator of the 50's style monsters-run-amok, alien invasion adventure with the Spielberg flare G.A.A.K: Groovy Ass Alien Kreatures with artist Monique MacNaughton, the creator of the Graphic Smash comic "UNA Frontiers". Monique and I have been working on GAAK together since October 2001 and have released one trade paperback collection of the online series currently running at Webcomics Nation (and Drunk Duck) to date. Next?

Re: Black Webcomic Creators--Holla Back!!!

My name is George Ford and I am a black webcomic creator based in Virginia. I create a comic strip called "Addanac City".  You can find all of my strips at www.addanaccity.com  I ran into this commentary by searching for other African-American cartoonists that were trying to do their thing on the web. I would love to get in contact with you all. Give me a holla thru my website and let's see if we can't help one another out.

Re: Black Webcomic Creators--Holla Back!!!

Re: Black Webcomic Creators--Holla Back!!!

I have an all-ages webcomic called LOGO.  It's manga-influenced, but there are plenty of african american characters, and I happen to be african american myself. I hope you like it! :)

I just came back from MegaCon in Orlando, Fl. There were so many black cartoonists there. I was asked by someone about it and I think the answers kinda' simple. Alot of artists are deciding to put out stories with minorities because they realize no one else will. I was sort of upset about the lack of blacks in comics for the longest time but I finally woke up to the fact that I was sort of responsible too. I think its cool though and it's a positive sign of things to come.

I'm really bad with summaries but is based around love between different ethnics and it does have a christian theme. Also it will address the drama of coming out of a abusive relationship, stalkers, and trying to fight to get the type of career you are working towards. I try to have my stlye of comic mixed with american style, manga, and Manhwa. So if anyone is interested you can go ahead and check it out. Comments are welcome :D

Well, I don't have a web comic at this time. I had one back in early 2006. In fact I started it on January 01, 2006 which was a Sunday. It was supposed to be a five day per week. strip.

Talk about a learning lesson. Well, I learned how much effort it takes to create a strip REAL FAST. My strip quickly dropped from five days per week to three. Even that was difficult given my real job. So I ended up dropping it.

Now I'm writing a few new strips in advance. Once I have a couple of solid scripts I am going to illustrate them and then, AND ONLY THEN, will I publish them three days per week.

Lovin' Lunar Boy: Act One

It's really well done. With artwork that reminds of the best of the saturday morning cartoons I watched back when I was a kid. And the action is kinetic. Almost hyper-kinetic. It never leaves your eyes alone. LOL! I noticed that that artwork on Act One is sort of different then the current pages. Why'd you switch up?

sorry 4 the late reply! The style changed naturally I guess. You get more comfortable with certain materials and things tend to streamline themselves. Thanks for the pos. feedback though!

G.A.A.K was cool. It had an old-school art style to in that really brought me back real fast. lol. It's cool to see artists that can really draw different types of people and make it look decepitively simple.

thanks for the heads up on that one, def. added it to my favorites.

Hey look over here - No up here!

Hey DeeMan, and others, let me in cause i'm black too! I'm live in Toronto and by day I work in video production but at night I work in ... oh, video production and of course on the weekends - well - sigh - video production. So with so much free time on my hands I decided to get together with a crew from across the globe and create webcomics. We're hosted here, where recent host server issues are aggravting me:

Artists gotta eat too!

You have no idea how many

You have no idea how many times I've heard that. Hey, if you're over 30 and live in NYC, back in he late 70's/early 80's you ran home after school when it was Godzilla/Gamera week or Scifi week on the old "4:30 Movie" program on ABC. Or watched old 50's/60's scifi/horror movies on Chiller Theatre on Saturdays. At the time the idea came up to do a comic like the old creature feature movies I used to watch growing up I was really ready to do something a little different then what I'd been doing at the time. GAAK turned out to be that "lttle something different". But if I were just reading GAAK I'd probably think "white guy" too. Even worse? GAAK's artist Monique MacNaughton is Canadian. And there really should be a law against such things. You know, like...ugh...Canadians. LOL! I'll be sure to check out The Vanguard.

a.k.a the MacNut, and I'm the creator, writer and artist of The Vanguard, a sci-fi superhero team comic set in the future. I've just begun chapter 3 of this little serial adventure, and will soon have chapters 1 & 2 available in print. Always suspected there were more of us that I thought, but I wouldn't have guessed that GAAK's creator would be a brotha!
