“I wouldn’t exist musically without comic books. Comic books gave me the courage to exist in this universe…every walk of life has heroes and stories worth telling.”
Turns out that music is not his only love. In 2014, McDaniels turned his life long love of comics into a new comic publishing company, Darryl Makes Comics (D.M.C.).
At this past New York Comic Con, we caught up with McDaniels and learned how he got into comics. He shared with us his favorite comic characters, explaining the courage comic books gave him as a young man and burgeoning rapper growing up in Queens.
