Who are you? I am Roosevelt Pitt, Jr., the creator of Purge, and a thirty year plus veteran in the comic book industry. I publish under my company’s banner AMARA Entertainment. My focus of creativity has been centered on the creation of heroes of color, that reflect the very best Black Culture has to offer. In addition to showcasing those skills and talents in every facet imaginable, especially within the spiritual and metaphysical realms.
Give 4 words that describe you! Determined, Spiritual, Persistent, and Adept.
Favorite Music and / or Music Artist! I truly enjoy music from the early 60’s thru the 90’s I have numerous musical artists that I have grown to cherish over the years. To choose just one would be quite an impossible task. I would say Marvin Gaye, The Ojays, Teddy Pendergrass, Minnie Riperton, Earth Wind and Fire and Tupac Shakur would be among my favorites.
Favorite Artist (besides yourself 🙂 ) First and foremost, I’m a writer and consider myself a literary artist utilizing the skillful handling of words and phrases to paint masterpieces within the minds of my readers. Word gymnastics, if you will. As I stated earlier concerning a favorite musical artist(s), choosing just one visual artist as my favorite would prove equally as difficult. I do, however, have a short list of those who have proven to be beyond outstanding in bringing people of color to the forefront as characters of substance and power. Mshindo Kuumba, Larry Stroman, Grey Williamson, Mohammed Agbadi, Marvin Sianapar, Krishna & Balram Banerjee , and Chuck “Dragon Black” Collins.
Project(s) you’ve worked on! Over the years, I have worked on a plethora of client orientated projects as well as personal ones that range from video and TV production to screenplays. The most well known and comic book related works would be Powerknights- Armored Sentinels, Random Five, and Purge.
Dream Project! As a independent comic book creator, my dream project would be to write and produce the Purge: Past Unspoken animated series! Not to mention that backers can help with that endeavor by becoming a anime producer in my Kickstarter campaign to create a animated short!
Current Project(s)! I’m excited to share that I am launching my first Kickstarter campaign for Purge: Past Unspoken! Purge the iconic hero from the 90’s returns! The campaign launches August 10th 2015, showcasing the extraordinary talents of Mshindo Kuumba, Larry Stroman, Jose Luis, Krishna & Balram Banerjee, and Sanford Greene.
Describe the inspiration and process you that led to the creation of Purge. As a comic book fan, I was inspired by the lack of suitable representations of heroes of color and was driven to create my own. Purge was birthed from that need and desire.
What is the story of Purge: Past Unspoken about? In Purge: Past Unspoken, Purge comes face to face with his questionable past and the hidden truths that lie within the city he protects. Overwhelming odds mount, when a genetic agent is created with the potential to eliminate two tenths of the world’s population. With the fate of the world at stake, and a clandestine group bent on his demise, unsavory alliances are forged that will forever challenge his beliefs of what it means to be a hero.
