Ten Ton Studios has their new weekly challenge up. http://www.tentonstudios.com/forum/index.php?topic=10784.0
This week it is Misty Knight. Now, I’m not a huge Iron Fist/Power Man comic book aficionado, but the very first thing I thought of when I read the challenge was Bobby Womack’s amazing soul tune, “Across 110th street” (I’ve yet to see the movie, although I payed homage to the movie poster too). I met my wife and lived in Spanish Harlem at the ages of 19-21. I lived on E119th street, Harlem was close by.
Watching Luke Cage on Netflix was like going home for me. Luke Cage is my favorite Netflix Marvel show so far and I LOVED Jessica Jones and Daredevil. I was a bike messenger and would often cut through Harlem from Spanish Harlem to pick up packages at Columbia University (and then bike downtown). One time, I even delivered to the Apollo Theater! That was a thrill.
So I am paying homage to stomping grounds of my youth. Now, I wish I could get some of those empanadas from 116th street.
