- May 20, 2014 - DETROIT --
Covenant House Academy High School, in Detroit, Michigan, www.covenanthouseacademy.org, decided to host an Animation/Drawing Contest and reached out to Comic Book Publisher, Sani McPherson, champion of the Edolons Comic Book Series for donated tickets. Five students entered the contest and Gena Turner and Taylor Randolph were finalists in which they won tickets to the 2014 Comic Con Expo in Novi, Michigan, at the Suburban Collection Showplace, on May 17, 2014. Mr. McPherson is the publisher and artist for a plethora of comic books that illustrate a brand new series of heros and villains, twists and turns, as well as, enemies and foes. Mr. McPherson, of Team Demonicus, www.teamdemonicus.com, did not hesitate to help out by donating the tickets to the Comic Con Expo in Novi. He was delighted to encourage these students, who have tremendous daily barriers, to draw, create, and stretch their imagine, as they competed for a fun-filled weekend of Animae. Both Gena and Taylor are keen artists with an eye for detail, love for the beyond, and a sweetness for beauty. It surprised both Dr. Bailey, school psychologist, and Ms. Jeana Tall, para-professional, that these students were exquisitely talented, well beyond their years or experience. It is no secret of the trials and tribulations that Detroit students face, daily. Covenant House Academy also has a residence that maintains homeless youth from Metro Detroit. Detroit, with its cosmic problems and disenchanting daily news of issues has its own heros, just like in the graphic and intense pages of the Edolons' comic books. Heroes like Mr. McPherson and the staff at Convenant House Adademy, could draw and write their own storylines, detailing the ups and downs of life in a city exasperated and plagued with villains and despair. Despite all that which is negative, there always seems to be positive and uplifting news in the city; just like in comic book stories!
