Woody McClain Signs Publishing Deal with Black-Owned Godhood Comics for ‘The Brotherhood’ Comic Series

Woody McClain has gained some “Power” after signing a publishing deal for a comic book series he created.

The Power Book II: Ghost actor has signed a publishing deal with Godhood Comics, a Black-owned comic book publisher. McClain has co-written a comic book series, The Brotherhood with DC Comics Milestone Initiative breakout writer Dorado Quick.

“I’m excited to work with Godhood Comics and bring The Brotherhood to life,” said Woody McClain in a written statement. “It’s an honor to work on a project that showcases the strength and resilience of the black community. I can’t wait for readers to see what we have in store.”

The upcoming project will be edited by Nicholas Maye, who is the producer of the Oscar-winning short film “Two Distant Strangers.” He will do this alongside Godhood Comics founder, publisher, and writer Tyler F. Martin. The artwork is slated to be done by llustrabox Studio.

The storyline for the comic book series is of a young man who accidentally finds himself involved in a secret organization of black men. These men have been protecting and helping Black Americans for generations. It has been described as The Kingsman meets James Bond and is a spy thriller that is full of action according to a press release.

Godhood Comics founder Tyler F. Martin also said, “We are thrilled to partner with Woody McClain on The Brotherhood, given his star power he could have taken this idea to any major comic publication but his passion for storytelling and commitment to uplifting black voices once again proves his dedication to the betterment of black creatives. We can’t wait to share this series with the world.”

The Brotherhood will be released later this year with no date revealed. More information about Godhood Comics can be found on the website at www.godhoodcomics.com.

McClain, who played “King of Stage” Bobby Brown in two BET docuseries, “The New Edition Story” and “The Bobby Brown Story” is currently starring as the volatile Cane Tejada in the Starz network series Power Book II: Ghost.
