@omgomgwtfwtf: Well, all this deity stuff is confusing, if you ask me. The most subscribed religions fight over whose god is more real, when in fact, they are the same entity. And one more thing: if you believe in Satan, then you believe in God. One can't exist without the other, so I can't see how Satanism is the same as Atheism.
You just need a thing to believe in, and a place to gather, then you got a bona fide religion.
@awesam: I thought Satanists worshiped Satan. Atheists just can't be bothered to go into some building on some appointed day of the week to sing high praise to some cosmological entity somewhere perhaps in the sky whilst wearing some funny thing on their heads.
Cool. I've heard about him. And if I believe correctly, he was brought to write the last issue or two of either Static, before it was again canceled back in early 2012.
Sad day we live in.
Also, I was about to type "we need more black writers among the big two" but then I corrected myself, seeing as there exists no such writer currently, and now change that to "we need black writers among the big two right now."
Thanks for your suggestion, I will look for his work.
In honor of it being black history month, I decided to start this thread. Yes, I could have started this thread at any other time, but now is a great time to get started, seeing as a lot of us will be indoors for the near future because of the frigid weather.
So tell me: What black writers/artists/poets/directors would you recommend for me? Creators of any medium that I should keep an eye out for, and keep my mind occupied with.
I'll start. Right now, I just started reading N.K. Jemison's Inheritance Trilogy. Just started book one, and I think it's awesome. I like her storytelling methods. The first book is called The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, and it is a fantasy novel in which our protagonist learns that she is heir to the most powerful throne in the world, and is thrust into a power struggle with other prospective heirs for the sole right to the throne. It is an awesome book, and I've been following Jemison on her website, and I think she is a nice lady. I recommend the book to fantasy lovers.
So that's my suggestion. I can't wait to read some of yours!
