MARKS DARRYL “DMC” MCDANIELS 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
TO THE COMIC BOOK WORLD WITH MULTIPLE COMIC BOOK CONVENTION APPEARANCES IN COMING MONTHS INCLUDING
2015 COMIC CON IN NYC OCTOBER 9-11
(New York City, NY October 8, 2015) Fearless, forward-thinking and filling a creative void just like he did as an inspiring, groundbreaking hip hop pioneer – Darryl DMC McDaniels now wields a one-of-a-kind superhero in his arsenal, marking his one year anniversary to the comic book publishing world this month with DMC #2! The charismatic icon makes good on his promise to expand the Darryl Makes Comics universe with the imprint’s second full length graphic novel, an irreverent, positively-penned street-powered comic punch that flaunts a new breed of superhero for those that need them most.
In DMC #2 you’ll meet more heroes like LAK6, Sifu Horas and The Breaks! who ride the crest of the b-boy hero movement and bravely take on the status quo. The first graphic novel, DMC #1, garnered critical praise inside and outside the comic book realm. Set in an alternate ‘80s world inspired by the revolutionary force of hip hop, the inaugural issue debuted to rave reviews at the 2014 NYC Comic Con.
Citing comic books as a childhood passion of his even before he launched his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hip hop career, DMC created Darryl Makes Comics in 2013 with his Editor in Chief Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, Senior Editor Riggs Morales, and longtime manager Eric Blam. The passionate quartet enlisted a globe-spanning team of artists and contributors to launch the Darryl Makes Comics franchise, and feature a collection of special homage covers in celebration of DMC #2, just as they as did with the kickoff issue. The homage covers capture the graphic novel’s striking iconography and pay tribute to the comic book history DMC grew up with as a child.
DMC #2 will be prominently represented at the industry’s most highly anticipated conventions, including the 2015 NYC Comic Con October 8 – 11, Stan Lee’s Comickaze, in LA October 30-November 1, and at the UK’s Thought Bubble Festival, November 9 – 15.
