A FULL CIRCLE MOMENT AT EARTH 2 COMICS’ NON-CON SIGNING

So today is the one year anniversary since releasing Rayven Choi. Didn’t realize it until today but Earth-2 Comics was the comic shop I first entered back in 2008 when I first started kicking around the idea of turning my Rayven Choi screenplay into a comic book-graphic novel. I walked in looking for a black female led comic book series and walked out with Heroes For Hire, Black Panther and Black Widow. None of which had a black female lead.

It took six years before I would get serious and start working on the Rayven Choi series in 2014. And it was another year and a half before completing and releasing the first two books in 2016. Today was pretty much a full circle moment when the owner of Earth 2 Comics bought 11 books from me wholesale, after I spent three hours signing and selling my books and merchandise at his anti-Comic Con event, Earth 2 NonCon. So now, almost ten years since I first walked into Earth 2 Comics looking for a black female lead, she exists, I created her, and I couldn’t be more proud.
