NBA legend and first time comic book creator Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is at the San Diego Comic-Con to promote his new comic from Titan Comics, Mycroft Holmes: The Apocalypse Handbook, out August 3, 2016. I had the honor to be given a few minutes of Mr. Abdul-Jabar’s time for an interview, however moments before I went in for the interview it was announced that the NBA was pulling the 2017 NBA All-Star Game from Charlotte, North Carolina as a result of the state’s discriminatory transgender bathroom law. I asked Mr. Abdul-Jabbar for his reaction and he said, “I’m glad they are conscious.
