So let’s start Black History Month with a bang shall we?
As promised, Peep Game Comix will be releasing a series of interviews with some of the most provocative, black independent comic book creators around this month as part of our #exploreblackcomics campaign.
This being our first day we decided to give you a treat; an exclusive interview with the creator of Trill League, Anthony Piper. Or as I like to call him, the Cam Newton of Black Comix!
Anthony has amassed thousands of fans with his comic book series Trill League– a DC comics parody featuring ghetto caricatures of your favorite Justice League members.
Its also gained an amazing amount of Hate with his portrayal of the rachect fan-favorite, Wondeisha and his “Love and Hip Hop” approach to comic books.
I’m not here to debate that point. I’ll let Anthony speak for himself. But I will say this: Anthony Piper’s Trill League may be controversial but if you consider artists such as N.W.A., Ice Cube, and the Notorious B.I.G., it’s always been the most hated groups that have had the largest impact on the culture.
So let’s get into it. This is Episode 0 of the Peep Game Comix Podcast featuring Anthony “Trill League” Piper.
