The rapper, known for his lyrical ability, has transitioned a lot of his creative energy into the world of comics. To solidify this, he created Darryl Makes Comics, his publishing company that creates books for all ages. The 2017 Baltimore Comic-Con takes place on September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th at the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center. “Baltimore has a ton of Run-DMC fans,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Having DMC to our show to flex his comic book muscles is going to be amazing, and his music fans get to meet a whole new side of Darryl. We’re really excited about this, as we’re sure his fans, old and new, will be!”
DMC explained his affinity for comic books as a young kid that would emerge as a super star emcee in Hip-Hop.
