RAID Studio profiled on AT&T U-Verse Buzz

If you'd like to learn a little more about the comic creators of RAID Studio then look no further than AT&T's U-Verse Buzz, who posted an excellent 30 minute video profile on four of its members. Our own Anthony Falcone is a member and makes a few appearances on the video. Unfortunately the video can't be embedded so you'll need to go to their website.

  1. Great video! A little romanticized but very professionally done. It just goes to show that at the end of the day, good work is a reflection of the hours you put in.

  2. Mr Manapul, my name is Ezekiel Leavell Jr. and I am a 61 year old U.S. Army veteran. I saw the piece on RAID and was compelled to write. I have been a comic book geek since I can remember. I did not read my school assignments but give me a comic book I was in heaven. I once recall having an assignment to read and had to get up in front of class and give a presentation that I naturally didn’t read. So rather than telling the teach that I didn’t read it I asked if I could give it on something that I knew. I took up the entire period tell about Superman in his long johns (drawers). Had the entire class crying with laughter. Even the teacher was crying in laughter. Another time I remember was-when I came up in public housing as I was raised by a greataunt. A bunch of neighborhood kids and I decided to dress up like comic book superheroes. Now being poor and not having clothes in the desired colors and still wanting to participate I drew the “FLASH” s logo on a T-shirt and called myself the Flash from a frozen planet. Now mind you I could run like the wind so this was cater made for me. But in listening to you tell tell your story about being raised in the P.I. it brought back a flood of memories of my active duty days. My first overseas assignments was on the isle of Okinawa. Matter of fact I was there for the boxing match “The Thrills in Manilla” and over the years have gained a reverance for the Filipino people. My 2nd trip overseas was to South Korea where I was assigned to the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (M*A*S*H) unit. There my commander was a Filipino U.S. Army colonel named Carmello S. Farbrigar. He was an extremely intellegent man. He was a vascular surgeon that had been in five other armies. He spoke six different languages. He used to hide in my logistics office. When I’d ask if I could help him he’d always reply “Aw Leavell I’m hiding from those sons of bitches”! The unit loved the Colonel. You have a culturally rich background that I quite frankly admire. But in closing I just wanted to express how I envy your job in doing something that I have always enjoy doing which is to illustrate. Dont ever stop because the gift leaves you. I have followed the emergence of comics from page to cartoons to feature films. You guys at RAID keep up what you are doing. I’m sure there are others like me out there in the world. Good Luck and tell Stan Lee I’ve enjoyed his work profoundly. It took me away from the suffering I went through growing up a poor child. I thank him.
