They took the real-life story of the famous Tuskegee Airmen, the first black military aviators in the U.
Army Air Corps the precursor to the U. The story is set 80 years in the future and follows five young pilots who are being trained by a fictional descendant of one of the real-life Tuskegee Airmen. They end up being the last line of defense against an advanced robot army and, in turn, getting an upgrade to their jets, giving them the ability to transform into giant robots.
That was my very first, and it kind of blew my mind. So that was my first comic art explosion moment. Then the cartoon came out, and maybe a few months after I got that first book. And now I hate the movies because they ruined what I saw as a child. He had Velcro on his hands and feet, he went with me everywhere. He was realistic. Not a whole theater. More like half a theater. I was failing classes because of it.
Tuskegee Experiment: The Infamous Syphilis Study
My teachers praised me and also scolded me at the same time. I had no idea I could make a living [at it]. So comics was it for me. I was terrible at drawing, but I liked writing. Many years later, after I had kids and moved to Atlanta, I had this idea to do this comic book. And Williams was able to draw the characters the way I wanted them to look and better. It was exactly what it sounds like, a bunch of cats who were heroes.
He was so right, cats are super easy to market, and the fans were some of the most passionate people on the planet. After that, did you decide to try self-publishing or did you continue to draw other work for other people?
I figured I understood the business enough. I did actually ask a million questions when I worked with Action Lab, I paid close attention to the business side of comics. So that helped me to understand how they make their money as a publisher.
So it helped a lot once I learned the business. Why the Tuskegee Airmen? Where did the concept come from? He was kind of mean in hindsight, actually.
Williams told me later that he was thinking about drawing some young Tuskegee Airmen, and then I had the idea to put it in the future. Then he said we should add robots and our heads exploded and it just started coming together. Gundamof course, when I was younger. When the internet came out I finally understood how many different anime there were that featured giant robots and team pilots. I knew I wanted to do something like this one day, even though I hate drawing machines.
I hate them. So when you did your Kickstarter, did you have any idea that it was going to be as big as it was? Williams: I would say it was at least a good six to eight months after, because we were literally working on the book and building the brand at the same time.The Tuskegee experiment began inat at a time when there was no known treatment for syphilis. After being recruited by the promise of free medical care, men originally were enrolled in the project. The participants were primarily sharecroppers, and many had never before visited a doctor.
Doctors from the U. Public Health Service PHSwhich was running the study, informed the participants— men with latent syphilis and a control group of others who were free of the disease—they were being treated for bad blood, a term commonly used in the area at the time to refer to a variety of ailments.
The men were monitored by health workers but only given placebos such as aspirin and mineral supplements, despite the fact penicillin became the recommended treatment for syphilis in PHS researchers convinced local physicians in Macon County not to treat the participants, and research was done at the Tuskegee Institute.
Now called Tuskegee University, the school was founded in with Booker T. Washington at its first teacher. In the mids, a PHS venereal disease investigator in San Francisco named Peter Buxton found out about the Tuskegee study and expressed his concerns to his superiors that it was unethical. In response, PHS officials formed a committee to review the study but ultimately opted to continue it, with the goal of tracking the participants until all had died, autopsies were performed and the project data could be analyzed.
As a result, Buxton leaked the story to a reporter friend, who passed it on to a fellow reporter, Jean Heller of the Associated Press. Heller broke the story in Julyprompting public outrage and forcing the study to shut down.
By that time, 28 participants had perished from syphilis, more had passed away from related complications, at least 40 spouses had been diagnosed with it and the disease had been passed to 19 children at birth. Additionally, new guidelines were issued to protect human subjects in U.
Inthe Nuremberg Code was established in response to Nazi physicians forcibly performing gruesome experiments on prisoners in concentration camps during World War II. The document set forth basic ethical principles for medical research involving human subjects, such as the requirement that a person must give informed consent before participating in an experiment. As a result of the Tuskegee experiment, many African Americans developed a lingering, deep mistrust of public health officials.
Herman Shaw speaks as President Bill Clinton looks on during ceremonies at the White House on May 16,during which Clinton apologized to the survivors and families of the victims of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. InPresident Barack Obama and other federal officials apologized for another unethical, U. In that study, from tonearly men and women—prisoners, soldiers, mental patients—were intentionally infected with syphilis hundreds more people were exposed to other sexually transmitted diseases as part of the study without their knowledge or consent.Now, however, he and Meera (Ellie Kendrick) are back at the Wall, and they may well be the reason that it finally falls.
According to legend, the only thing that can bring down the wall is the Horn of Winter (aka the Horn of Joramun), and some fans are now speculating that this could be Bran himself. The theory is that this magic is the same magic that was used to construct the Wall, and that when Bran crosses the Wall with the mark on his arm, it will destroy the protections and give the Walkers a way South.
Instead, it looks like season 6 will feature a different Lady Stoneheart: Arya. While this would be a major change from the books, it does allow for the Stoneheart character to appear before the end, and keeps the basic concept (of a Stark hellbent on vengeance) intact.
Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) has pledged his allegiance to Yara (Gemma Whelan), and the two of them have taken their fleet of Ironborn to Daenerys to help her invade Westeros. Our bet is on Yara being the one to bite the dust, leaving Theon once again on his own.
Sam could even be the one to convince the houses to melt down the Iron Throne itself. At the end of season 6, Tormund and Brienne have separated again, and fans were reminded of the feelings between Brienne and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) when they met at Riverrun. Given the complexity of the situation, and the promise that Brienne and Tormund will not be getting a happy ending, this is likely to end up as a love triangle, Game of Thrones style. That is to say, at least one of the three will die, most likely two, at the hand of the other.
The only question is: who will survive this star-crossed situation. At this point, it is generally assumed that Daenerys herself is one head of the dragon, and she is already riding Drogon.
The second head of the dragon is (presumably) surprise Targaryen Jon Snow, who will likely learn of his parentage this season. The third head, meanwhile, may well be none other than Tyrion Lannister. Valonqar is Valyrian for little brother, leading many to assume that Cersei will be killed either by Tyrion or Jamie, her two younger brothers (Jamie was born moments after Cersei).
The Hound hated his brother, but he is still sure to be shocked at what Cersei has done to him, and he hates the Queen for his own reasons, as well. What bold season 7 predictions do you have hidden up your sleeve. Please support ScreenRant so we can continue providing you with great content.

The belle of the free-agent ball: durable, personable and entering his age-28 season. The Red Sox will sign either him or Hosmer. How much will his terrible World Series hurt his value. Or to flip the question, how much would a good World Series have helped his value. Three straight years of stellar regular-season and extensive postseason innings bolster his resume.
Of this free-agent class, the leader in WAR (using both Baseball-Reference. Man, what a run the Royals had, huh. Three of the top seven free agents are theirs. He and the Indians have such a good thing going. To be clear: Whoever signs him controls him for at least six years. Zack Cozart, SS: What to make of a guy who put up his best year, by far, in his age-31 season. He came back strong in his first full year after Tommy John surgery.
He too rebounded nicely after missing 2016 due to TJ surgery. He has come a long way since the Yankees traded him to the Twins for Miguel Sulbaran in 2014. The last time he explored the market, George W. Bush was the U. He opted out of his Baltimore deal after a great year with the Orioles. Yet another returnee from TJ surgery and another opt-out guy he enjoyed a Rockies renaissance before tiring.
His health now has to be a concern after two straight years with heavy disabled-list time. One of many intriguing relievers out there, his age (37) works against him. He should earn the most of the many southpaw relievers available. The old fellow could retire unless he finds an excellent fit.
