The creative team behind Legion M‘s amazing new graphic novel Defiant: The Story of Robert Smalls descended upon Comic-Con International in San Diego last week to discuss the creation of the historically rich book and the Kickstarter campaign which launched a week earlier and funded the project within 45 minutes of launch.
Writer Rob Edwards (The Princess and The Frog, Treasure Planet), Producer Marvin Jones III (Black Lightning, Spider-Man:Into the Spider-verse), Artists Nik Draper-Ivey and Ray-Anthony Height, Editor Chris Robinson, and the great, great grandson of Robert Smalls–Michael B. Moore–all stopped by Cherry the Geek TV to chat about Robert Smalls, the creative decisions behind the book, and the process of bringing it to life via Kickstarter.

At the time of publication, the Defiant project was at 900% of their Kickstarter goal, but you can still back the project and pre-order the comics and/or graphic novel (and get other tiered prizes like autographed posters) until August 10th by visiting the Defiant Kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/legionmofficial/defiant-the-story-of-robert-smalls.
