We tell great stories...
We have seen many great African American superheroes in comics,
but we never saw an iconic African American superhero team. We didn’t have our Justice League, our Avengers. We, as comic book fans of color, young and old, didn’t have a universe where our heroes reside...
... Griot Enterprises fills that void.
Griot Enterprises’ core form of communication is the comic book,
a uniquely American art form. But creating a good story is only half of the battle. In order to give a story life, it must be told to as many as possible.
Griot is dedicated to producing product that is at once familiar to the
current comic book community, but is not afraid to tackle new concepts
and format to reach an audience outside of the typical comic book realm.
Comics foster reading comprehension and can be an effective
delivery system for lessons and concepts in all subjects. Griot is
dedicated to the use of comics for education.
The entertainment industry has many innovators. Unfortunately,
it has a greater number of imitators. Griot respects its audience
and our strong sense of commercial viability. We remain true to
our vision and our work while creating a financially viable product.
We take no shorts. We create innovative concepts, establish new
trends, and produce high-quality products.
