I (sort of) have a character in Milestones, an art show about African American Comics!

A few years ago, Vince Stone and I created Life Force - a short comic for a good cause to encourage people to sign up as bone marrow donors. In honor of Heal Emru / Aide Emru, we updated some public domain superheroes and made the majority black.

Kristopher M. Mosby liked what we did with our main character and did his own version:

That piece will be in Milestones: African Americans in Comics, Pop Culture and Beyond:
Geppi’s Entertainment Museum President Melissa Geppi-Bowersox announced the Museum’s collaboration with Inkpot Award recipient Michael Davis of Milestone Media on a historical exhibit featuring numerous artistic examples of African-Americans’ contribution to pop culture throughout America’s cultural revolution.
This makes me ridiculously pleased. If you'll be in Baltimore while the show's running, check it out!
