Lion of Judah, Season One, one of the year's most exciting projects (in both the comics and the music industries), has its inaugural launch at WonderCon. Produced by global icon Bob Marley's family, his music library's license-holder, Primary Wave and the Creative Principals (M. Menelik Makhar, Dermot Hussey, O.D., and Robert Roach), it is a 7-issue, 50-pages per book endeavor. The narrative chronicles the African Diaspora's last 150 years-the Solomonic Dynasty, H.I.M. Haile Selassie I's reign, the African struggle for independence, the Cold War and its worldwide impact. Jumping across eras, principals, and locations, this intersectional story weaves together historical, musical, and political contributions of Kwame Nkrumah, Steve Biko, Bob Marley, The Wailers, and many others. The narrative's musical contributions range from reggae to ska to dub to dancehall. Creators involved in Lion of Judah's formation and those who participated in crafting this three-sided deal—Robert Roach (LLC partner/penciller), Larry Welch (inker), Hannibal Tabu (comic script adapter), Paul Husband (attorney), and M. Menelik Makhar (LLC partner/creator/screenplay writer)—will discuss the project's details.M.D. Marie (Top Cow writer) will moderate.
