24 HOUR COMIC DAY (this is a thing!)

By JP Simmons


AMERIME MEDIA at its heart is a publishing company. We primarily publish sci-fi fantasy, space operas, paranormal romance, and yes COMIC BOOKS. we have two comic series in production. "Rise To Regent," our vampire comics that accompany the dark fantasy novels, and "The Land Of Blood And Plenty," a comic series about a warrior tribe Africa charged with protecting a very special village. These comics have been in production for a year, and have yet to hit the market 
so you can imagine our surprise to learn that there are magical elves (these people aren't human) who can produce an entire comic book in a day!


According to Wikipedia, a 24-hour comic is a 24-page comic book written, drawn, and completed in 24 hours. Cartoonist (And the leader of the elves, Elron if you will) Scott McCloud came up with the challenge in 1990 as a creative exercise for himself and fellow comics artist Stephen R. Bissette. Beginning in 2004, writer Nat Gertler helped popularize the form by organizing annual 24 Hour Comics Days (usually held in October), which now take place regularly in the United States and many other countries worldwide.



I learned about 24 hour Comic Day by browsing movies on Hulu... I am preparing for NaNoWriMo and I love to watch movies I've seen a thousand times while I make my outlines. It has a documentary, reality tv show type of vibe, and it really sparked my interest. I immediately went to the website http://www.24hourcomicsday.com/ to find out more about this awesomeness. I highly recommend you check out the movie on Hulu and stalk the website at your leisure. Amerime Media is based in Philadelphia and Philly held no 24hourcomicday events this year, but we are sure to host one next year!!!

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.

KIN (movie review) by Corey Floyd

I saw the trailer for KIN a while back. It had my curiosity. Black kid finds a gun that looks like it's from a Decepticon. He tries to protect his family... Hey, it looks better than the robot dog movie that you're already ignoring for obvious reasons. Anyway, I was lucky enough to see a screener of the film the other night and drank a few red bulls so I could bring a review to you.
Eli is a young ambitious kid who is mourning the death of his mom. While salvaging the abandoned buildings of Detroit he finds an Alien Weapon. Naturally, he keeps it secret from his strict blue-collar dad, played by Dennis Quaid. Quaid tries to instill values into his youngest son (Eli) while his eldest son Jimmy returns home from prison. Jimmy can't be apart of the family until he repays his prison debt to the local crime boss Taylor Balick, played by James Franco.
I don't wanna give too much of the plot away... sorry. But... I can say that the movie is worthy of your hard earned dollars. T…
