WESLEY SNIPES TO INTRODUCE NEW SCI-FI FRANCHISE
“Zulu Mech 1” AT THE 2009 AFRICAN AMERICAN PAVILION
AT BOOKEXPO AMERICA
An innovative combination of animation, music, movie techniques and fine art paintings called a “Cinema Graphic Novel,” “Zulu Mech 1” is an adventure designed to promote literacy, hope and world peace. Creators Mshindo I and Gregory Walker, aka “Brother G,” the award winning author of the “Shades Of Memnon” historical adventure series, will be on hand to introduce their epic, as will Snipes, star of the Blade movie trilogy, who serves as “Zulu Mech 1” co-producer and voice talent, also scheduled to appear is Jonathan Woods, animation director and music composer.
Then at 1:00 p.m., activities will shift to the African American Pavilion stage for a presentation entitled “African Legends Past And Future” that closes with a screening of the first “Zulu Mech 1” adventure. Upcoming episodes will soon be available on Apple Itunes.
“I think “Zulu Mech 1″ is a grand adventure,” said Snipes. “Everybody knows I love sci-fi, I am always looking for a hot new property and I think I found it! If the fans liked the stuff we did on the Blade series, they are gonna love this. “Zulu Mech 1″, as written by Brother G and illustrated by the amazing Mshindo brings a fresh, untapped perspective to scifi. I think the world will be pleased. Our hope is to develop ZM1 into one of the hottest franchises around.”
