Illustration Comic Book Run DMC Superhero

Help Launch The First “DMC” Comic Book Series

Before he was one-third of the legendary hip hop trio known as Run DMC, Darryl McDaniels was a comic book-loving kid from Hollis, Queens. Though the past time is typical for many pints his age, Darryl eventually traded in the passion for the fantastical world of superheroes and villains for another fantastical world that he was actually plugging into right in his neighborhood and hometown, hip hop. The rest could’ve essentially been musical history, but as the cypher of the story goes, it’s come full circle, back to comics. Now, after more than 30 years rocking the mic, Darryl, and an all-star crew of illustrators, directors, and producers, set off to rock the comic world! But they need your help to do it.

DMC, alongside Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, Riggs Morales, Damion Scott (Batman, Batgirl, Robin, Solo and Spider-Man), Dexter Vines (Superman, Batman, Civil War, Wolverine), Ronald Wimberly (Prince of Cats), Sal Buscema (Avengers, Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk), and graffiti legend Carlos Mare (Style Wars) are going to manifest a hip hop-meets-comic book world like no other.

Set in hip-hop’s revolutionary era of the 80’s, the first comic features DMC as a superhero fighting for justice in an alternate universe. Wild Style-inspired graffiti covers every surface of this world as the true grit of pre-Giuliani New York is captured within the pages of the graphic novel.

And they need your help to fund their “Darryl Makes Comics” KickStarter initiative and make it reach it’s $100,000 goal. It’s the only way that the project’s premiere 48-page graphic novel will make it to light and shelves.
