“Don’t tell friends about your comic – make it,” said comic-book and television writer Dwayne McDuffie at Keith Knight’s “Nappy Hour” panel. And this year, there were more POC creators doing just that, and not just on the page. Here’s a look at three of them, plus the webseries Chick.
Chick (Kai Soremekun, who also wrote and directed the series) follows Lisa, a woman who’s convinced she’s a superhero in the making, as she searches for both her powers and a “Secret Academy” in Los Angeles. The 20-episode first season also includes an alternate reality game, where viewers can help Lisa decipher some cryptic messages. The first episode (NSFW: brief sexual situations) is below.
