‘Raising Dion’ comic book trailer is better than most movies

  • Dennis Liu and Jason Piperberg have released the trailer for their new comic book Raising Dion.

  • Premise, via the creator's site: "Imagine Superman, but from Martha Kent's point of view. Or imagine Spiderman, but from Aunt May's point of view. This is a superhero story, but from the parent's point of view. But unlike her son, she doesn't have any powers."

  • The series is notable for having the protagonist be a black single mother, Nicole, which the creator said was intentional: "Honestly, as a member of the DGA EDSC [Directors Guild of America Eastern Diversity Steering Committee] Diversity council for several years, I felt like something had to be done about superhero diversity [...] I also felt the industry was simply answering the gender card by glorifying women as a war hero, like in The Hunger Games, or the new Wonder Woman film coming out. I think this [approach] works, but I wanted to point out that it doesn’t have to be the only solution."

  • This needs to be a Netflix series immediately.



You can download the first issue of Raising Dion for free HERE (or you can buy the issue to support the series).
