Shomari Simmons talks about his coloring book titled “Lil’ Shu n’ Them” and how meaningful it is to have kids see themselves represented in the artwork they love.  “I visited a school during Black History month and did a reading and that was a wonderful experience because the kids were just so happy to see kids that looked like them in a coloring book.”

    Brian Lambert | Justice x Wingless Comics

    Brian Lambert (@brian_wycoff_lambert) Brian joins us on the Black Superheroes Matter Podcast. Brian Joseph Lambert is the award-winning, lead contributing writer at Wingless Entertainment. He specializes in bringing diversity to action/adventure, fantasy and sci-fi worlds. Brian's current projects include “WAR FOR THE SWORD- THE CHRUSION SAGA BOOK 2”, a CG animated feature film entitled, “RUBICON “and “JUSTICE- THE FALL”, an ongoing series for WINGLESS COMICS, a division of Wingless Entertainment.  Brian Lambert and I discuss some of the ways COVID-19 has impacted what “normal” means and how creating art can be a form of therapy during times like these.  “One of my favorite experiences is at conventions when I see kids and they’re a little shy but they want to come and talk to you or see the poster or ask you stuff or ask “how do I get into it” or “hey should I keep writing?” It’s great to be able to talk to them and say “yes you should, I want to see you behind this table” because you can see a light in their eyes, you know, the same one that somebody saw in yours when they were talking to you about it.
