Many of you already know Eric Dean Seaton as the creator of the successful indie comic book series, Legend of the Mantamaji. What you may not realize, is that he is also an accomplished Hollywood TV director. Eric has directed a bunch of shows like Living Single, That’s so Raven, The Thundermans, Mech X-4 and just started shooting the Raven reboot series Raven’s Home. In this interview I talk to him about his Hollywood career, what it’s like to create and publish a successful indie comic book (he sells over 100 copies a month through Amazon alone), and which is tougher. Check out the full interview at the links below:
Ever wonder if the science and tech that you see in comic book movies could actually happen in real life? Could someone really create a new element in their living room like Tony Stark did in Iron Man 2? What real-life poisonous plant, might have actually killed King Joffrey in Game of Thrones? What polymer might Hulk’s pants be made out of? Could Spider Man’s webs be replicated in a real lab? Must me walk around with two decaying corpses to ward off a horde of zombies? Well, these are some of the questions I got to ask analytical chemist Dr. Raychelle Burks in my interview with her. This interview was so much fun! There was lot’s of giggling mixed in with a load of science. Dr. Burk is not to be missed! You can also check her out on the Science Channel’s awesome show Outrageous Acts of Science.

If you’ve been following me on youtube, then you know I interviewed a bunch of creators at The Schomburg Black comic Book Fest in January of this year. It was my first time recording the Black Comic Book Fest interviews with a crew and I really couldn’t have done it without Tyrell Worrel of The Fan Bros Show Podcast and Azreen Zaman as well as the amazing photography of Al Cayne of SugarCayne.com . Also, if you have some time, you should also check out the panels from the convention. So far there are two videos complete, but a third is on the way! Enjoy!
On October 6, 2016. Black Enterprise magazine held a roundtable discussion about black Comics and personally invited indie black creators to participate. (I was actually invited as well, but I had a speaking engagement and couldn’t attend). The creators in attendance were Micheline Hess, Regine Sawyer, N. Steven Harris, Joseph P. Illidge, Naseed Gifted, Diletantte J. Bass, George Carmona, and Roye Okupe (by phone). The discussion was moderated by writer and Black Enterprise contributor Samara Lynn.

If you guys have been reading the blog, you know that HBO invited me to speak on a panel about their new show Westworld. I was also able to interview philosopher, futurist and NatGeo show host Jason Silva (Brain Games) that day as well. (I waited for my new Youtube Channel to go up before I posted.) We talked about his shows Nat Geo’s Brain Games as well as his philosophical streams of consciousness via his youtube channel Shots of Awe. And of course, we discussed what would happen if he ever went to Westworld. Here’s a hint: Sex was involved. Take a listen.
