Comics and Hip-Hop collided once again this year!
Darryl “DMC” McDaniels is a Rock-N-Roll Hall of Famer for his musical contributions as a member of Run DMC. However, over the weekend DMC returned to his true roots as an OG (Original Geek) at the New York Comic Con 2014. As an artist in Run DMC, he was also considered one of the super heroes of rap in the 80’s and 90’s. Over the weekend, he launched his comic, “DMC,” under his own comic publishing label, Darryl Makes Comics. An all star cast joined DMC to talk comics and Hip-Hop at the second annual “Boom! Bap! Pow! Hip-Hop & Comics! 2014” panel. Senior Editor of Darryl Makes Comics Riggs Morales, Young Guru, rapper/geek Kwame, Q-Unique of the Arsonists/Rock Steady Crew, Editor-in-Chief Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez and moderator AllHipHop’s own Chuck Creekmur. The spirited conversation transversed diversity in comics, the artists background in comics and even DMC’s own book. Below are some images from the panel, courtesy of Erika Quiles.
