Dieselfunk Dispatch Comics Distribution

Dieselfunk Dispatch Comics Distribution

Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The Dispatch is BACK! We are presently on the perpetual Matty’s Rocket Book Tour in California.  It never really ends folks. Of course the Dieselfunk Dispatch continues. This time giving our breakdown on what makes up the Comic industry. I mean, you got your run of the mill floppies from the big majors and indie varieties, your thick ol graphic novels, and your prestigious format thingies. It’s enough to make a mug question just what is the Comic Book Industry? For the artists it means one thing, but for the publisher it means something altogether. Add in the digital disruption with distribution it makes for quite a tale. The Dieselfunk Dispatch goes in relatively deep, but simple enough for the regular reader to get an idea of how it goes down.

BLACK ENTERPRISE speaks to Tim Fielder on AFROFUTURISM

BLACK ENTERPRISE speaks to Tim Fielder on AFROFUTURISM

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  BLACK ENTERPRISE ON AFROFUTURISM!  It’s so fascinating to see the world we are in now.  Where visuals that depict people of color within speculative scenarios are now mainstream.  AFROFUTURISM is now MAINSTREAM. 

The Black Panther has now crossed 1 Billion Dollars worldwide and continues on.  Wrinkle In Time is out doing good business as well.  This is all due to the contemporary media state where the demand for content morbidly outstrips the content supply.  As a result, media companies, whether they be traditional or new, are all in the CONTENT WAR.  This means subject matter that never would have even been considered before is now MAINSTREAM.

I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by BLACK ENTERPRISE MAGAZINE on the subject of Afrofuturism.  I was asked to come in and speak on the subject of Afrofuturism.  HUGE pleasure to work with Bigwig Samara Lynn, Media Maven Selena Hill, and special acknowledgement to Sharon Wynne. I had a Blast!  Check it out HERE  or click BELOW
