Hey peeps! Welcome to the Grindhouse Mixtape (Comic Shoppe+Afronerd Radio=Blerd info) edition of Afronerd Radio airing this Saturday at 6pm EST). Join Daryll B., Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they gas up Scooby's (or is that Mike Tyson's) "Mystery Machine" in hopes of highlighting these pop, pulp and politcal conundrums: filmmaker, author and graphic novelist, David Walker stops by to discuss his new Dynamite comic project, Shaft; the crew shed more light on last week's Marvel cinematic bombshell-e.g. Avengers Infinity Wars, Cap 3, Black Panther, etc; Bradley Cooper heralds his 2011 Limitless movie toward a small screen TV series; Dburt finally gets around to discussing the Finding Your Roots special with Nas and Angela Bassett; HBO releases the Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown doc; an actress films what it's like to experience cat calling as street harassment; a teacher tentatively remains on the job after telling a student that her "bucket list" would contain a pledge to "kill Black people" ; more tidbits on DC's forthcoming Wonder Woman film (1920s period setting; need for a woman director) and lastly, is it important for MCU ( and WB/DC supporters) to have some working knowledge of the print comics that the movies come from? Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective, and it is not my place to influence the evolution of the superhuman role- Dr. Stephen Strange
