Legion M has assembled an amazing creative team and put a plan in motion to tell the remarkable true story of Robert Smalls that begins with a graphic novel – aka the first draft of storyboards – and hopefully ends with a feature film or TV series.
Award-winning comic book artists Nikolas Draper-Ivey (Marvel Action: Black Panther) and Ray-Anthony Height (DC Comics’ The Batman Who Laughs) with editor Chris Robinson (Marvel Comics' Black Panther) have joined forces with screenwriter Rob Edwards (Academy Award-nominated films The Princess and the Frog, Treasure Planet) for the upcoming DEFIANT graphic novel. In their roles, Draper-Ivey will be responsible for designing the overall look of the book cover while Ray-Anthony Height will be responsible for providing artwork that brings the story within the graphic novel to life. Robinson will oversee all aspects in editing the novel together.
For years there's been memes about Robert Smalls saying “This should be a movie!” Now you can be a part of making it happen. — PRE-ORDER your copy of the full graphic novel, comic book series and exclusive perks.
