Speaking of Nick Fury, who, I might add does end up going rogue and sending a big fuck you to Uncle Sam (not a character, just the US Government), I came across the following map, which you can take as a tie to Marvel espionage, or as an anthropological mapping of privacy and surveillance.

Fear of a Black Planet-Eater

Atenção: even if this post is too geeked out for you don’t skip off till you’ve heard the DMC interview! I promise its totally accessible and pretty effin rad, okay? deal??

in case I’ve already lost you with the title, a planet eater is this:
galactus Now that I’ve put that up front, I suppose there’s only so far I can fall, in terms of geek factor and such. Cuz I got more to riff on for a second.

While I was galavanting (aka sitting through a riveting board meeting) in Chicago, b-boys and homeboys decended on New York City to form a discreet alliance in the form of New York ComicCon.

I was not there. I cannot report first hand.

However an acquaintance of mine definitely sat on a panel with DMC (of Run DMC), and my cousin ran around taking pictures of everyone decked out as their favorite comic book leagues, legions, brigands, posses, scoobies, and of course avengers

Unfortunately, I can’t embed the two-part interviews with DMC, but you can click here and then here, and have your mind blown.

Now, before I go let you oggle Fwee’s optical comicon bounty, I wanna give a heads up for this local comic conference called Black Age of Comics, which is the 8th annual session devoted exclusively to black writers, artists, characters, panel discussions and the like as they pertain to blackness in the world of comics big and small. Join us in Philly for a b-boy/fanboy jamboree!

I hope you can appreesh some hallowe’en-style black Nick Fury, care of yr truly. I’m kinda bummed the S.H.I.E.L.D. insignia that I worked so hard to adhere to my shirt is eclipsed by my, ahem, handgun:

black super-agent does NOT equal "pirate"

The not-yet-eaten-planet is yours,
