Dr. de’Angelo Dia

6/9/2022


Theopoet and comic book scholar, Dr. de’Angelo Dia is a descendant of a lineage of Gullah griots, priests, and priestesses, thus inheriting the ability of astral projection, chlorokinesis, and necromancy. When not defending Earth-616, he can be found delightfully consumed by graphic novels, art and poetry journals, Blaxploitation films, and conversations with topics ranging from Jesus and Buddha as brothers to the gospel according to Stan Lee.
