Black Panther TV Interviews - Voice of America & ABC-7

I've done numerous media interviews over the past week about the cultural impact of Black Panther. Here are two TV spots that I'm very proud to be a part of:


Voice of America, “Black Panther Sets Hollywood Records as Crowds Pack Theaters Around the Globe” - https://www.voanews.com/a/4261999.html


ABC-7, “CPS Students, Families, Churches Pack ‘Black Panther’ Showings” - http://abc7chicago.com/entertainment/cps-students-families-churches-pack-black-panther-showings/3107535/

I've championed Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur for a couple of years now, being an early fan of the series.

Nine-year old Lunella Lafayette is a super-genius with a pet dinosaur. She's officially the smartest person in the entire Marvel universe. She mind-swaps with said-dinosaur when the moon is full (it causes problems, as you'd expect!). She's by-far the best thing going on at Marvel right now... and she's my daughter's favorite super-hero, which is hard not to be contagious about.

Now Disney has announced they will produce an animated series:


Amazing. Joyous. Moon-tastic. I want a feature-film now!
