Darryl McDaniels Signing DMC Vol 1
Nov 6 @ 6:30 pm

dmc_fb

Meet legendary Hip Hop artist Darryl “DMC” McDaniels at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, November 6th for a signing of DMC Vol 1, the first collection from Darryl Makes Comics.

It’s 1985 in New York City. Wildstyle graffiti covers subway cars as. B-boys break and spin in playgrounds and on street corners. Koch is mayor. Drugs and crime rule the streets. A terrifying plague is brewing in the shadows.

However, in this 1985, Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC) never rocks the mic to become one of hip-hop’s most enduring icons. Instead, he dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defend the city’s marginalized citizens against super villain and super hero alike. DMC, the inaugural title from Darryl Makes Comics, imagines an alternate history that blends traditional comic book storytelling with the pressures and anxieties of 1980s NYC, and explores how we got to where we are now. DMC is a superhero for those who need one most.

Purchase of DMC Vol. 1 required to attend.
