From the minds of local Atlanta illustrator, Marcus Williams and children’s book author Greg Burnham comes the “Tuskegee Heirs: Flames of Destiny” comic series. Tuskegee Heirs is a futuristic sci-fi adventure that follows a squadron of young, gifted aviators, who are forced to become Earth’s last line of defense against a menacing race of artificially intelligent villains bent on destroying civilization. The duo looks to pay homage to the historic Tuskegee Airmen, while bringing forth a new set of character rich, young heroes.
A professional illustrator and comic artist of 15+ years, Marcus brings his experience of drawing and crafting high quality art and stories to this project. His comic career started by drawing and producing a wildly popular nationlly published comic entitled “Hero Cats of Stellar City“. While working on this comic, Marcus fine tuned his understanding of the business of making, selling, marketing, and publishing comics by attending dozens of comic conventions and even comic retailer summits where he conversed and mingled with VP’s from Marvel and DC comics.
Greg Burnham is a children’s book author, and co-creator/writer of Tuskegee Heirs. His passion for history is only matched by his fire to inspire children to reach higher heights. By day, Greg works in finance, coaches basketball and raises his two children. By night, he, along with Marcus Williams form the duo that has brought Tuskegee Heirs to life.
The dynamic duo will be hosting panels, selling and signing exclusive prints and the latest editions of their work!
