Happy Black History Month pt. 8 :D

Christopher James Priest was the 1st black editor at Marvel Comics in the 70’s and the first at DC comics in the 90’s. He’s the first black writer to work on and write major titles like Power Man & Iron Fist, Spider-man, and a fan favorite volume of Black Panther. He’s currently writing the ongoing series “DC Rebirth: Deathstroke” which started late 2016. He took a break from mainstream comic writing in 2005 until now because he was starting to get labeled a “black writer for black characters” and felt confined. He wanted to be able to write for any character at any time, which is why he agreed to start again with the new Deathstroke title.
He’s also ordained so that’s a plus. lol
