Check out the latest "pre-NYCC" (New York Comic Con) '19 Mid Week in Review podcast airing this Wednesday at 7pm eastern. The topics to be covered by your favorite AFROnerdists are: expectations for this upcoming NYCC as well as proposed panels, previews and appearances; the unveiling of a NYC statue depicting a (modern era) young black male on a horse perplexes Dburt and other cyber critics; legendary opera singer, Jessye Norman passes at 74; should/can Purple Rain be remade?; thoughts about the Amber Guyger trial and the verdict (and what will be the sentencing?); the NYT graphic novel best selling list returns after a 3 year "hiatus"; the comic book TV translations appear to be neverending with Stumptown's recent high ratings and Ava Duvernay (New Gods) being tapped to direct another DC comic property, DMZ as an HBO streaming project; and how ironic that DMZ' premise is centered around a new Civil War (where have we heard that supposition?) And lastly, Marvel Netflix alumni (Mike Colter, Simone Missick and Wilson Bethel) find a new home ar CBS. Call LIVE ar 646-915-9620. *Kanye in Queens?
