Comic-Con, my home away from home, is this week and I wanted to provide a little insight into why it gives me such joy.
First, I want to highlight someone who sums up the enthusiasm of those of us who love Comic-Con, warts and all. We know Comic-Con is not perfect but it is something that provides so much joy to those of us who love pop culture.
Nathan Donovan loves the Con so much that he moved here from New York just to be closer to the pop culture mecca.
Donovan represents the fan side but Keithan Jones represents the creator side. He is the founder of KID Comics and the creator of "The Power Knights." This year he is running a booth at Comic-Con as well as helping to organize the Afrofuturism Lounge outside of Comic-Con.
Jones talks about the challenges of being an independent black comic book creator.
