I first came across the artwork of Marcus Williams in a Facebook group and was immediately blown away by his bright and creative animated style. He had some great interpretations of well known characters and some we haven’t seen in quite some time. Though it was when the art for his Tuskegee Heirs started showing up that I really took notice! An original idea based off of the historical Tuskegee Airmen who fought during WWII.
Synopsis from Kickstarter page:
Tuskegee Heirs is a futuristic sci-fi adventure that follows a squadron of young, gifted aviators who are forced to become Earth’s last line of defense against a menacing race of artificially intelligent villains bent on destroying civilization.
As more information was released about Tuskegee Heirs, Marcus made it known that he and author Greg Burnham would be taking things to Kickstarter in an attempt to launch this project to a wider audience on various platforms. So with that being said, it’s finally here and you should take a look at what Tuskegee Heirs is about along with the sweet pledge rewards.
Tuskegee Heirs looks to have all the makings of something fantastic and reaches back to an important part of history that many have forgotten or never knew existed. So head over to the Tuskegee Heirs Kickstarter to see more artwork and help get this project off the ground. You should also check out the Tuskegee Heirs Facebook page for further updates as well.
