The History Of Comics With Q-boy #62
Notoriously Getting Rich Or Die Trying To Get 8 Miles Outta Q-boy Comics
As indicated by the title this one is inspired by the rap movies “Notorious”, “Get Rich Or Die Trying”, “8 Mile”, and “Straight Outta Compton”. Let’s take a look at the panel…
- Panel 1 is based on the cover to “All Eyez On Me” by 2pac (which if you don’t know you’re either pretty young or VERY different from me) that you can check out here https://qr.net/vGTat5 . Bobby Cakes face specifically is based on this drawing by Robert Crumb https://goo.gl/XX2Ntr
- Panel 2 is based on the cover to “The Source” magazine from May of 1995 which you can check out here https://goo.gl/LGCyI5
- The last 2 panels are based on screenshots from “Straight Outta Compton” including the last screenshot from this collection https://goo.gl/MGWE8D & the 2nd to last screenshot from this collection https://goo.gl/Lpqt0W
Next time will at least be the start of one of Q-boy’s greatest adventures as we begin to close out The Silver Age of comics. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
