King DMC Of Run DMC Takes On Baltimore Comic Con This September

0 Comment

DMC aka King DMC is set to take on Baltimore Comic Con, furthering his long-standing relationship with the world of fantasy.

The rapper, known for his lyrical ability, has transitioned a lot of his creative energy into the world of comics. To solidify this, he created Darryl Makes Comics, his publishing company that creates books for all ages. The 2017 Baltimore Comic-Con takes place on September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th at the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center.

“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!”

DMC explained his affinity for comic books as a young kid that would emerge as a super star emcee in Hip-Hop.

“When I started with Run-DMC, I was a nervous little nerdy kid,” said 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.”

DMC has already published several comics under his publishing imprint and they will be on full display as DMC signs autographs.

Darryl Makes Comics is dropping another issue in late 2017. “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.”
