About this project

Husna is a huge fan of comics and science fiction.  She is not a fan of the fact that women and people of color are often relegated to subordinate roles and she asks me often, why that is.  Recently we surprised mom with a single remix of 2pac's "Dear Mama" by booking time for Husna to rap, her original piece in the studio... the response was so great on social media that Husna was inspired to work on a piece, which she asked me to help edit and write.  She decided on the comic book topic and came up with the title "The Comic Con" herself, which is a play on the idea of a Comic Convention, but also the real meaning of the word con, which is a dupe or a lie.  The con she is referring to is the lie that women and people of color are only good enough to be sidekicks, eye candy or villains.  She memorized a verse about her favorite characters and went to the studio this week to record her song, she also asked me to record a verse and I was her featured artist... the song, has been recorded, but now it needs to be mixed and mastered and we'd like to do a video and pay for it to be properly distributed.  I told Husna bout Kickstarter and this is her first attempt to build a fanbase and support for her art.  If you like the snippet you hear, please help us finish this project and support a young artist in her attempts to share her art with the world.  Even if you can't support this financially, drop a message of positivity or solidarity - each one teach one -- Kalyan (proud dad)

Risks and challenges

The only risk of the project not getting complete is funding. Even if we don't reach our funding goal, we will find a way to get the project out, on a slower time table, but its our home that through Kickstarter we will be able to galvanize support, interest and get this project out in a timely manner.
