American Mule Entertainment has provided CBR News with an advance look at Public Enemy #2, the second issue of the celebrated hip-hop group's first-ever licensed comics series. CBR's Jonah Weiland spoke with creators Chuck D and Adam Wallenta about the series in May. In that in-depth interview, Wallenta explained that the book is a combination of fantasy and reality in which frontman Chuck D and Public Enemy face rogues including corrupt politicians and governments, crooked police, drug dealers, slave traders, and child molesters to high tech mercenaries and genetically engineered super soldiers.
[Public Enemy] have been in the trenches for twenty years fighting the good fight, said Walenta. Their real life adventures alone are more interesting than most fictional comic books. They have had ups and downs, successes and struggles and people relate to them on many levels as well as aspire to be like them. If you speak to the thousands of fans worldwide, you will hear tales of how Public Enemy's music and message helped change lives. It's really incredible. In many ways they are real life superheroes.
