Dieselfunk Studios is a proud partner of
Black Metropolis | 30 Years of Afrofuturism, Comics, Music, Animation, Decapitated Chickens, Heroes, Villains, and Negroes

There is a largely unknown aspect of cartooning history that began at the intersection of the 1980s Punk, Hiphop, Free Jazz, Underground Comics, and African-American cultural scenes. Black Metropolis is an exhibit that focuses on Visual Afrofuturist Tim Fielder’s 30+ year career working the obscure margins of alternative weekly editorial cartoons, black rock music flyers, Afrofuturism, African religious modalities, and mainstream pop-culture. Works showcased range from Tim’s works with The Village Voice, Marvel Comics, to his graphic novel series ‘Matty’s Rocket’ and the HarperCollins-Amistad graphic novel epic, ‘INFINITUM: An Afrofuturist Tale’.

Imagine a city that’s Black… BLUE BLACK.
