WELCOME TO THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH...

 

 1990s critically acclaimed comic book, Brotherman: Dictator of Discipline has been more than just entertainment. Brotherman has served to be an intellectual ignition for the  entrepreneurial spirit, creativity, cultural awareness, and positive self-esteem.

From the moment Brotherman hit the streets, a generation of artists and would-be artists saw that depictions of themselves was not only possible but cool.  They realized that not only did they have stories to tell but now a different and unique vehicle to tell it.

They found the confidence that images of heroism, strength, intellect, and love, was neither monolithic nor absent from their own images.

The impact of Brotherman has and continues to be the creative catalyst for people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and nationalities; There is a truth that transcends boundaries
and empowers.

The Troublesome Troupe is more than another case for Duke Denim…it is three rings of knuckle-bustin’, clown-nose honkin’, midway gamin’, and crystal ballin’. Fortunes told…integrity sold…sights to behold.  All this action…without a net.

Big City’s number on private detective takes on his most soul-searching, soul-stirring, and sole-shaking case.  One wrong move and he just might be first to receive last rites.  Duke better watch his step when walking through a field of headstones.
