Born a slave in Dorchester County, Maryland, Tubman was beaten and whipped by her various masters as a child. Early in life, she suffered a traumatic head wound when an irate slave owner threw a heavy metal weight intending to hit another slave and hit her instead. The injury caused dizziness, pain, and spells of hypersomnia, which occurred throughout her life. She was a devout Christian and experienced strange visions and vivid dreams, which she ascribed to premonitions from God.


In 1849, Tubman escaped to Philadelphia, then immediately returned to Maryland to rescue her family. Slowly, one group at a time, she brought relatives with her out of the state, and eventually guided dozens of other slaves to freedom. Traveling by night and in extreme secrecy, Tubman (or "Moses", as she was called) "never lost a passenger". After the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 was passed, she helped guide fugitives farther north into British North America and helped newly freed slaves find work (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harriet_Tubman).


Actor, Casting Director, Comedian, Director, Filmmaker and Screenwriter, David Crownson states that his graphic-novel is a blend of Django Unchained + Buffy The Vampire Slayer  + Mad Max : Fury Road.  Harriet Tubman, the Demon Slayer  is a graphic-novel based on the true life of the freedom fighter with genre liberties that mirrors Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter.   When slave owners can't stop the formidable ninja warrior Harriet Tubman, they call on the help of vampires, werewolves, witches, and demons to stop her. Harriet Tubman must lead a family of slaves to freedom while battling an army of darkness.

Join us as we talk about his upcoming venture and his career.  Crownson's goal is to raise $15k to fund the production of three issues for major publishers.  Contact David at 908.655.1679 and Kickstarter information.
