UK – DMC Vol. 3 Signing

Darryl McDaniels will be signing DMC VOL. 3 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 30th June from 1:00 – 2:00 PM!

It’s 1985 in New York City – and, in this timeline, Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC) never rocks the mic to become one of hip-hop’s most enduring icons. Instead, he dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defend the city’s marginalised citizens against super villain and hero alike, leaving no traces besides the imprint of his knuckle rings on his opponents’ faces. (By day, though, he teaches junior high school English.)

DMC, out from Darryl Makes Comics, imagines an alternate history that blends traditional comic book storytelling with the pressures and anxieties of 1980’s NYC, and explores how we got to where we are now. DMC is a superhero for those who need one most.

PA – DMC Signing

Press Release:

Amalgam Comics is humbled and excited to welcome hip-hop pioneer and Darryl Makes Comics publisher Darryl “DMC” McDaniels for a discussion & signing of his graphic novel series DMC on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 1:00 PM!

DJ Hvn Lee will provide the soundtrack of the day spinning classic Run DMC & Len Webb of Black Tribbles will moderate our discussion with DMC about all things comic & hip-hop.

Don’t miss your chance to meet a living legend!

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, a pioneer, icon, and founding member of the legendary rap group RUN DMC, brought his love for comics full circle with the creation of his very own independent publishing house called Darryl Makes Comics.

Already a hero to his millions of fans around the world, DMC’s accomplishments read like a laundry list of musical and cultural accolades: Grammy nominated musician, Emmy winning life story, multi-platinum recording artist, 2009 Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame inductee and rap/rock pioneer who influenced music the first time he touched a mic.

But before co-founding Run-DMC, DMC grew up reading comics and developed a passion for them. “When I started with Run-DMC, I was a nervous little nerdy kid,” says DMC. “I didn’t want to get up in front of a crowd and rhyme; but what gave me confidence, out there on stage was pretending that I was the Hulk on the microphone.”

In 2014 DMC’s childhood passion came to fruition when he along with his Editor in Chief Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez and Senior Editor Riggs Morales teamed up with some prominent fixtures in the comic book world to craft his first 48 page graphic novel ; 100% authentic, unapologetic, indie, comic book, under the imprint, Darryl Makes Comics.

The comic, set in hip hop’s revolutionary era of the 80’s, 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 among the pages of this graphic novel.

FREE & open to the public. The discussion will begin promptly at 1pm. Books will be available for sale.

MI – Darryl “DMC” McDaniels Signing

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels from the iconic Rap group Run-DMC visits Source Booksellers on Friday, August 25, 2017 at 6:00 PM to discuss his new book “Ten Ways Not to Commit Suicide.”

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels had it all—public adulation, the respect of his peers, money, and celebrity status. But, it all imploded when, overwhelmed by such success at a young age, he sank into a world of depression, alcoholism, and regular thoughts of suicide. In his brutally frank memoir, TEN WAYS NOT TO COMMIT SUICIDE, McDaniels recounts his slide into emotional darkness and the ways he worked to rise out of his depression and embrace the gift of life. McDaniels’s story has particular resonance in our time, with a rising epidemic of suicide among black men. Indeed, suicide is the #3 leading cause of death among African Americans.

This event is free and open to the public.

Baltimore Comic-Con Welcomes Darryl “DMC” McDaniels

Press Release:

The Baltimore Comic-Con is thrilled to announce the addition of Darryl “DMC” McDaniels to our 2017 guest list. The 2017 Baltimore Comic-Con takes place on September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th at the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center. You can purchase your tickets for the show now.

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, a pioneer, icon, and founding member of the legendary rap group Run-DMC, brought his love for comics full circle with the creation of his very own independent publishing house called Darryl Makes Comics. Already a hero to his millions of fans around the world, DMC’s accomplishments read like a laundry list of musical and cultural accolades: Grammy-nominated musician, Emmy-winning life story, multi-platinum recording artist, 2009 Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and rap/rock pioneer who influenced music the first time he touched a mic. Before co-founding Run-DMC, DMC grew up reading comics and developed a passion for them. “When I started with Run-DMC, I was a nervous little nerdy kid,” says DMC. “I didn’t want to get up in front of a crowd and rhyme; but what gave me confidence, out there on stage was pretending that I was the Hulk on the microphone.”

In 2014 DMC’s childhood passion came to fruition when he, along with his Editor-in-Chief Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez and Senior Editor Riggs Morales, teamed up with some prominent fixtures in the comic book world to craft his first 48-page graphic novel, a 100% authentic, unapologetic, indie comic book under the Darryl Makes Comics imprint. The graphic novel, DMC #1, garnered critical praise and attention when it debuted in 2014 featuring some of the comic industry’s finest talent. The story was created by DMC and Damion Scott (Batman, Robin, Solo), with Ronald Wimberly (Vertigo/DC, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Prince of Cats) serving as creative consultant to develop the script. Each chapter is visualized by different teams of artists, including Chase Conley (Black Dynamite), Jeff Stokely (Six-Gun Gorilla, The Reason for Dragons), Felipe Smith (Peepo Choo, Ghost Rider), Mike & Mark Davis, the Mad Twiinz (Black Dynamite, The Boondocks), Shawn Crystal (Arkham Manor), and colorist Chris Sotomayor, not to mention cover art from industry legends Sal Buscema and Bob Wick, and graffiti pioneer MARE 139 (Style Wars).

Set in hip hop’s revolutionary era of the 1980s, the first comic featured 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 among the pages of this graphic novel. In his second graphic novel, released December 2, 2015, DMC returned and fulfilled his promise to expand the Darryl Makes Comics universe! In it, readers met more heroes like LAK6, Sifu Horus, and The Breaks! They are on the cusp of the b-boy hero movement but first they must take on the status quo that has been misleading New York City. Based on a story by Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Greg Pak (Marvel’s Totally Awesome Hulk, DC’s Batman/Superman), and Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, written by Amy Chu (DC’s Poison Ivy, Sensation Comics’ Wonder Woman) and illustrated by an incredible roster of talent featuring Juan Doe (Marvel’s Wolverines), Sung Goo Won (Cartoon Network’s Black Dynamite), award-winning artist Afu Chan (Society of Illustrators 2012), Marcus Williams (Action Lab’s Hero Cats) and Elliot Fernandez (DC’s Harley Quinn/Powergirl), DMC #2 features color art by Christopher Sotomayor and Eisner-winning colorist Gabriel Bautista. The covers are art directed by Edgardo Miranda- Rodriguez and illustrated by comic book industry giant Humberto Ramos (Marvel’s Spider-Man, X-Men) and graffiti king Bio of the Tats Cru, with color art by Edgardo Delgado (Marvel’s Spider-Man), DMC #2 also offers a variant cover by comic book industry legend Bill Sienkiewicz and graffiti curator and artist Alan Ket.

Darryl Makes Comics is dedicated to the idea that every walk of life has heroes and stories worth telling. “Hip hop was always based on creativity,” DMC says, “so what we’re trying to do with this comic book is not trying to create anything that’s new; we’re just going to show the world what’s already there… the beauty and the creativity of it.” DMC will be releasing his third issue in late 2017.

“Baltimore has a ton of Run-DMC fans,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Having DMC to our show to flex his comic book muscles is going to be amazing, and his music fans get to meet a whole new side of Darryl. We’re really excited about this, as we’re sure his fans, old and new, will be!”

The Baltimore Comic-Con returns to the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center on September 22-24, 2017. In the coming weeks, look for more announcements from the Baltimore Comic-Con. We are looking forward to highlighting our guests, industry exclusives, and programming. The latest developments can always be found on our websiteTwitterInstagram, and Facebook pages.
