The Prospect unleashes Adam Serwer and all of cyberspace trembles:
Since my name's up there now, this is also going to be a place where I rant about the political subtext and artistic value of comic books and video games, as well as the occasional nostalgic diatribe about hip-hop music. Also more on zombies.
Mere mortals can scarcely comprehend the power cosmic. For of what import are brief and nameless neocons to Young Serwer?
Ta-Nehisi Coates is a senior editor at The Atlantic, where he writes about culture, politics, and social issues. He is the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle.
Born in 1975, the product of two beautiful parents. Raised in West Baltimore -- not quite The Wire, but sometimes ill all the same. Studied at the Mecca for some years in the mid-'90s. Emerged with a purpose, if not a degree. Slowly migrated up the East Coast with a baby and my beloved, until I reached the shores of Harlem. Wrote some stuff along the way.
