Ear Hustle 411 came across this amazing new cartoon & Comic Book ” Raising Dion” about a single mother raising a super human son that has super powers.
It’s awesome to see such a great and positive image of African-American single mother with such a brilliant son. We are so excited about the trailer and the positive reinforment this comic book will have on young African-American youth.
See what the Grio reoported:
The story is told from the perspective of single black mother who’s trying to raise her “super” 7-year-old son in a world that is out to get him.
The poignant metaphor that plays out in this series – written by Dennis Liu and illustrated by Jason Piperberg – is pretty hard to miss, especially given this country’s current social climate.
According to their website,
Nicole, raises her 7 year old son, Dion, who has superpowers. Life was hard enough keeping up with the bills, let alone trying to keep track of her son’s invisibility, plasma powers, and telekinesis. In order to study his progress, Nicole films her son 24/7 with the help of her friend, Pat, who is an aspiring filmmaker. But when Nicole starts to notice mysterious men tailing her, and with Dion’s developing abilities constantly changing and becoming more powerful, she must find the courage deep within herself that she can raise Dion on her own.
Check out the cleverly executed trailer below.
