I was put on to this event when I went to the Comic Con in NY. I was surprised to see so many black comic book artist, writer etc. I was kicking it with a few of them and they told me about ECBACC in Philly which is the annual black Comic Con. You know I had to go down there and see what it was all about. So I got CTruth, DJ Wiz and Peanut Butter Jones to come down and film at the event. Stay Tuned for part#2
