Today at 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT on Instagram live, Black Girl Nerds host Ryanne Bennett interviews Killadelphia creator Rodney Barnes.
Rodney’s latest offering Killadelphia from Image Comics has become a best-seller, earning praise for its compelling and fresh take on a genre story through the lens of African-American culture – among its fans are such notable names as Jordan Peele (“Killadephia is the stunning and fresh horror fable I’ve been craving. This one feels like a classic”) and Chris Rock (“It’s the best graphic novel I’ve ever read. Five times more graphic and eight times more novel.”) Rodney is currently expanding the property with the final issue in his second arc dropping this month, and a television adaptation in the works with Levantine Films.
