Hajime no Ippo – The Black Boxer Battle.
(AfroGamers.com) George Morikawa’s Hajime no Ippo is one of the OGs of boxing manga. I don’t want to go full in and say “It was the original boxing manga.” It certainly came after Rumiko Takahashi’s One Pound Gospel by ten months but it’s the more well known of the two. It’s one of those pillars of sports manga with Slam Dunk and Captain Tsubasa. Complete with mandatory tournament... [Read more of this review]
Comic Book Shows vs. Comic Book Films.
(AfroGamers.com) When it comes to comics and the screen, I’ve always been a fan of television adaptation over film. Some might say “What?! TV over film?!” Yes, TV over film. While movies allow for these amazing visuals and makes for an awesome blockbuster experience, sometimes the story suffers.
Looking at superhero films, comics have stories that stretch several issues. Characters crossover... [Read more of this review]
My Favorite Ninja Video Games.
(AfroGamers.com) I’ve always been a fan of ninja video games since playing Ninja Gaiden and Revenge Of Shinobi during my childhood days because I loved using powerups and ninjutsu to not only defeat tougher foes with them, but to also slice them in close combat.
Here are my favorite ninja video games.
1. Shinobi III – The Return Of The Ninja Master – When I first played this game on... [Read more of this review]

Looking at All-Negro Comics #1.
(AfroGamers.com) All-Negro Comics #1–the first and only issue–is a legend in Blerd comic book circles. Published in 1947, most of the stories weren’t particularly good but it is all on the weight being the first ever Black financed, written, and drawn comic book ever. It was an anthology magazine that featured several stories.
The other thing to note here is that for that period in time,... [Read more of this review]
Judge Dredd – Robot Wars.
(AfroGamers.com) When it comes to comics, Judge Dredd is one of my favorites. It’s anthology-style making it a light read in one sitting–think the old Marvel Presents comics or a chapter of a manga. Storyline-wise, the world building starting in the late 1970s to now is interesting. Most of the early Dredd stories are one-off adventures until you get to the multi-part storylines which fill...

Smite: My Welcome Back to Gaming.
(AfroGamers.com) Atari, Nintendo, Super NES, Saga…I loved them. Super Mario Bros and Mortal Kombat were some of my favorite games growing up. However, I admit as I got older and life began to happen I drifted away from gaming consoles. It seemed like there was a subtle push to grow up, move around and try new things. There was a stigma that gaming was a waste of time. Furthermore, gaming hasn’t... [Read more of this review]

Gems of War: My New Addiction.
(AfroGamers.com) Bejeweled was once my ultimate stress reliever in game form. I didn’t have to think just play. The music and the colors were relaxing, and I would in front of the Wii and play for hours. If there was something heavy on my mind it was a no brainer…play Bejeweled. Once I upgraded the subpar phone at the time I realized I could play my beloved game from the phone. I actually payed... [Read more of this review]
Sometimes the Rudest Gamers are Children.
(AfroGamers.com) Many of us try too sensor what our children watch on TV, and what they see on social media. It is important that their innocence, if we can help it, isn’t completely destroyed. Furthermore, we know that the world isn’t the safest place for children. Finding a safe place for children to come into themselves is very important.
Gaming is a culture and community that can be positive... [Read more of this review]
