Billy Graham was an African American comic book artist, who has worked for publishers like Marvel and Warren. His earliest work appeared in Warren’s Vampirella magazine around 1969, and his work additionally popped up in Eerie. He eventually worked as an art director at Warren for a while. When Graham left Warren around 1972, he moved over to Marvel, where he helped create ‘Luke Cage, Hero for Hire’ with John Romita Sr. and George Tuska.

From 1973 to 1976, he worked with writer Don McGregor on ‘Black Panther’ in Jungle Action. During the 1980s, he worked with McGregor again on the ‘Sabre’ title at Eclipse Comics. Graham has also contributed to Marvel magazines like Journey into Mystery, Monsters Unleashed and Eclipse. Billy Graham passed away in 1999.

Hi everyone, my name is Sam McDermott. For my capstone I am going to be showing various Robin Williams films throughout the month of March. I will also be talking about Bipolar Depression before the movie and will be staying afterwards if you have any questions about it. This is purely to raise awareness, so it doesn’t cost anything. Every movie will start at 3:15 and will be shown in Mr. K’s movie room.
TODAY – Mrs. Doubtfire

Hey everyone! This week, Monday through Thursday, Jessa Maynard and Daphne Reynolds will be selling t-shirts outside of Foundation Hall during lunch for their Capstone Project. They are raising money for the Carolinas Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. Each t-shirt is $20 (and comes with a free cookie!). They also accept donations of any amount without the purchase of a t-shirt. On Friday, they will be presenting about Crohn’s and Colitis, and Jessa will share her experience living with Crohn’s disease.”
