Mass Appeal: Two years into publishing comic books, what do you feel you’ve learned and accomplished?

DMC: I’ve learned that you have to produce a respectable product that is done with integrity and concern for the issues and circumstances that speak for the audience. Also, it’s a lot of hard brainstorming work! With the trend of diversity in comic books, how do you feel about your books and the new characters you’re introducing? We don’t create the characters to be on the diversity bandwagon, from the beginning our universe reflects the universe we have been living in. Tell us about your team and how it is to work with them. I am blessed to have Edgardo and Riggs! They are truthful and have a vision beyond anyone I’ve ever worked with in art, publishing or music! They are passionate and care about creating innovative and universally appealing characters and stories. We are like The Holy Trinity or Three The Hard Way! We speak, and it is. And they refuse to put out fake shit. Our goal is to give artists, writers, inkers, pencilers, colorists, and graffiti artists opportunities to create with their gifts in a universe that will touch generations forever, just like Marvel and DC.
