Reading comic books was a big part of my life as I was growing up. Batman and Superman were frequent companions, but my all time favorite comic was MAD Magazine. Comics and comic artists have evolved over the years from The Yellow Kid which was featured in 1895 in the New York World to web based artists like Jim Shaw and his Will Draw for Food creation. There was a time when Jim was living on his own, working three minimum wage jobs just to make ends meet. In Jim’s own words: “I recall early one morning, in the backroom of one of my tedious retail jobs, half-awake, I had a revelation. I did not want to simply exist, to merely pass through this one chance at life, forgotten, known by no one. An unobserved life is not worth living. With that notion playing in my head all day, I quit my jobs, moved back home with my parents, and applied to Brookdale Community College.” Jim had always been interested in comics, manga, video games and all other degrees of nerd paraphernalia, and so he began pursuing a career as a comic artist. He has gone on to work on multiple projects, comics and children’s books, such as Aerin, Will Draw for Food, I am a Superhero, and many more. Jim works online with many other artists, and in June of 2015, he co-founded a comic books publishing house called Blu Trinity Comics with two colleagues. Their goal is to help others get their comic books published, online, in-print, and into the hands of readers across the globe.

Before heading to Earth-2, Barry closes all but one of the breaches so that Zoom has no other way to travel between the parallel Earths. Using the last breach at S.T.A.R. Labs, Barry, Cisco, and Dr. Wells travel to Earth-2, but there is a surge of energy that de-stabilizes the breach. The trio will be stuck in Earth-2 until Caitlin and Jay can stabilize the breach again. Barry decides to impersonate his Earth-2 self to get more information on Zoom. Barry is attacked by Earth-2's Caitlin and Ronnie Raymond, known here as Killer Frost and Deathstorm, agents of Zoom. Cisco attempts to help the police stop the pair, but he is confronted by his own evil doppelganger, "Reverb". Barry tries to rescue him but is stopped by Reverb and Deathstorm. Zoom arrives, kills Reverb and Deathstorm for harming the Flash, and then imprisons Barry alongside Jesse. Meanwhile, Jay reveals to Caitlin that he invented Velocity-6 on his Earth, and that it is the real reason why he lost his speed and is dying.

This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, the show that mixes comics and politics. For this episode we're welcoming first time guest Karama Horne, aka "the blerdgurl" to talk comics and more!
Karama Horne (a.k.a. - “the blerdgurl”) is a freelance commercial video editor by day and comic book reading, anime watching, TV live tweeting, K-Pop listening, blog writing, superhero geek gurl by night. On a mission to shine a light on both characters and sequential artists of color, she provides commentary, reviews and interviews on her popular tumblr and official website theblerdgurl.com.
One of her most popular posts, “25 Reasons Why You’re Not Making Money at Comic Cons” went viral in 2015 and received over 23K pageviews in 3 days. She has been quoted on popular media sites like Comics Alliance, Comic Book Resources and The Beat. Her writing has been featured on Black Girl Nerds, The Mary Sue and PeepGame Comix.
When Karama’s not writing or editing, she’s fixing up her century old brownstone in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn that she shares with her two cats who plot her demise daily. You can find the blerdgurl on twitter, facebook, instagram and tumblr.
A mysterious plant known as Black Mercy places Kara in a dreamlike state that has her imagining that she is back on Krypton, thanks to a plot by Non, who is using Earth's technology to launch Myriad, which he and Astra are planning to use to wipe out humanity. Alex, Hank, Winn, Maxwell, and James race against time to save Kara with Alex entering Kara's world to pull her out and bring Kara back to reality. When Kara comes back she seeks revenge on Non and stops him but Astra, who wanted Kara unharmed and upset with Non, is killed by Alex before Astra could kill Hank (who fought her off as the Martian Manhunter), only to have Hank tell Kara that he killed Astra instead of Alex, who starts to feel guilty over this and whether she should tell Kara the truth. Non vows revenge on Kara in the wake of Astra's death.
It’s that time again!!! Round Table Tuesday!! Join us tonight at 9PM on R.I.G.H.T. Mind Radio as we continue the conversation. The focus will still remain on the family unit, Blackman, Woman, & Child. A beautiful thing about our elders is they understood that it took a “Village” to ensure that our communities thrived. We have moved away from that mentality. Every man/woman/child for themselves. The family unit is in shambles & that is the very structure that our communities need, so we’re going to define family as well. What does the word mean to you? Today, we turn a blind eye to injustice, crime, abuse, drugs & everything else that is destroying our communities. This is not about outsiders coming to our rescue, this is about US saving US. It can be done, when we take our rightful positions as men & women. Once order is in place, the youth will fall in line. Join us as we give our definitions of “The Village” and how are we going to go about achieving the goal. Tonight is also Q & A for all of the panelist. Call in & ask anything. We encourage healthy dialogue.

Kenjji grew up in Detroit’s Rosedale Park neighborhood, went to Catholic school for eight years, and later attended University of Detroit Mercy and Western Michigan University, where he studied art.
Kenjji dropped his surname because of its connection to slavery and its consequent “unpretty history.”
He was first inspired to create comics after reading Brotherman, one of the first independent comic books featuring a Black superhero, which was published in the late ’80s and early ’90s.
“I decided it was time to reinstate books like Brotherman, which I found so influential and appealing, and the first thing I had to do was create a character that was just as cool as Brotherman,” he explains.
“I wanted to do a character with cornrows — that was the look. Around the time I was working this out, D’Angelo [noted for his cornrows] came out with his album Voodoo, which gave me the inspiration to start researching Voodoo as a background for this character.”
Hence the birth of his protagonist, who was named after a “super-suave friend” by the name of Jovan who lived on Carrington Street.
Kenjji is a strickler for detail, and wanted his book to paint an authentic picture of Voodoo. He extensively researched the history of the misunderstood practice, devouring books and studying under a Voodoo priestess who runs an informational Web site about the practice and history of Voodoo.
