INVERSE Covers AFROFUTURISM!

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!   Had the pleasure of being included in a piece by INVERSE.COM on the subject AFROFUTURISM.It was amazing to see how many subjects they covered in the clip and very proud to see Matty’s Rocket amongst the pack.  I also got a kick out of seeing Playwright, Melanie Maria Goodreaux (Full Disclosure, she’s my wife) featured prominently.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=154XnA1xcis&t=18s

Matty on Publishers Weekly MORE TO COME

Matty on Publishers Weekly MORE TO COME

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  Just getting back in from our most recent stop on The #mattysrocketbooktour.  Just before leaving, I was honored to be interviewed by the Legend, Calvin Reid, Senior News Editor of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.  I was recently having a conversation with a colleague about how important Calvin’s work is with regards to the medium of comics and graphic novels.  The medium has in this gentleman, an ambassador and town cryer; something every industry needs in order to survive.  Everyone has that thing that they do well, do with passion, and would do for free.  Calvin LOVES COMICS.  

This is exhibited most profoundly in his work as host of: PW’s MORE TO COME.

We talked about Matty’s Rocket, my process, Black Panther, Dieselfunk Studios, and our upcoming graphic novel, INFINITUM.

Calvin is like ‘The Shadow’ with that frikin ring.  He turned it towards me and I suddenly got dizzy and had to follow his commands.  Unwillingly!:-)  I gave a scoop for MATTY’S ROCKET BOOK TWO!

ITS NOT MY FAULT!!!:-)
