Whyt Manga Storms the Block: A Comic Extravaganza in Dubai!

It’s been crazy how many places our creators have been popping up lately.  this past weekend Apple Black creator Whyt Manga hit center stage at the annual comcbook event Storm the Block!

Whyt was flown out to Dubi and had the honor of joining a ton of amazing artists as they spent 3 whole days hosting panels, workshops, and even sketch battles – which Whyt won one of I might add.
