BLACK ENTERPRISE Black Comics Roundtable

Greetings Dieselfunkateers! Imagine if a call was made to some of the most innovative creators around to discuss the state of BLACK COMICS.  ThIs was done today at Black Enterprise Magazine offices.  Under the careful guidance of Author, Samara Lynn, (with George Carmona running Shotgun) illustrious artisans such as Naseed Gifted (Khem Comic Fest, Dilettante J Bass (PB Soldier), Regine Sawyer (Lockett Down Productions), Joseph P Illidge (Lion Forge/Solarman), N Steven Harris (Solarman), Micheline Hess (Malice In Ovenland), Dewunmi Roye Okupe (Youneek Studios/ Malika Kickstarter), and myself, Tim Fielder (Matty’s Rocket /The Dieselfunk Show) laid waste to the myth that brothers and sisters don’t read and create comics.



Derek Dingle (co-founder of MILESTONE MEDIA and Senior VP/Editor-In-Chief of Black Enterprise Magazine) beamed down to let us know that we are doing important work. (I promise you the light beam was not photoshopped:-)

Well Alright Then:-)

Look at the replay of the Black Enterprise Black Comics Roundtable Periscope. Most importantly, look out for the upcoming October issue of Black Enterprise Magazine IN PRINT and ONLINE.
