Danny J Quick is a veteran in the Indie Comics market. As CEO and Lead Writer at 4th Wall Productions, he’s spent the last 10+ years producing such projects as Aceblade, LumberJax and the SIC Squad while also producing the groundbreaking weekly ‘Super Shorts Podcast’ where he and Morgan Iverson tell indie comic stories every Thursday. But at the helm of this project is the young Legend Wolly Mcnair from Charlotte, NC.
Wolly has worked at every level of the art game during his time as an artist; from character design to comic page illustrations to cover artist for Archie Comics, he’s done it all. Wolly has been able to evolve his art with the ever-changing industry and works regularly with traditional ink and copics as well as strictly digital illustration and coloring. From local startups and Prestigious Museums, to Nike and the NBA for 2019’s All Star Weekend Wolly has been using his passion for art to express himself in every way possible. King Supreme is the culmination of everything BOTH the young men have been through up until this point.
Rebuilding Our Communities
Growing up in a rough neighborhood, Wolly had to learn how to navigate the politics of his community just to survive from an early age. Developing his artistic talents gave him an outlet that many others in his community didn’t have. While Danny, growing up with a father in prison, moved away from a rough community with his mother faced struggles of his own in the military. A deployment to Iraq forced him to find a way to focus his thoughts so that he didn’t succumb to the fears of what was happening all around him. During that year-long deployment, the foundation of Aceblade and the entire #4thWallUniverse was created.
A Chance Encounter
Both young men developed a strong sense of ownership and connection to their communities, and a chance meeting at Heroescon in Charlotte NC would connect their paths for many years. King Supreme’s story is built on the themes of Ownership of Self, and a responsibility to the community. It follows a young man who wants to leave a legacy of his own but struggles with a desire to escape the boundaries of his paltry neighborhood.
A Legacy of…
No matter what you may see on the NEWS, there are people who want to make the world a better place. But there are also those who want to leave as much hate and destruction in their wake. Leave the world a better place or burn it all down and let the next generation figure out how to rebuild. When you get your crown, what will you do with it?
