ABOUT THE COMIC SERIES
“Tuskegee Heirs: Flames of Destiny” is a futuristic sci-fi action-adventure comic book series set 80 years in the future, that follows a squadron of young, gifted aviators, who are forced to become Earth’s last line of defense against a menacing race of artificially intelligent villains bent on destroying civilization. Trained at the legendary Moton Field, by Col. Mars (our own fictional descendant of the Tuskegee Airmen), these five teens and their crew embody strong moral ethics and team strategies used by the Red Tails themselves to overcome their problems. Follow along as our team travels the globe in an effort to save civilization, exposing little known history and geography along the way.
Also…There’s GIANT ROBOTS.
From the minds of illustrator/writer, Marcus Williams and Writer/editor Greg Burnham comes the “Tuskegee Heirs: Flames of Destiny” comic series. What started as a conversation highlighting the lack of content that exposes youth to the history of aviation, quickly became a springboard to craft something unique. Combining futuristic science fiction, action adventure, real history, and the inspiring story of the WWII fighter pilots, the duo aims to pay homage to the historic Tuskegee Airmen, all while bringing forth a new set of young heroes. The team definitely intendS to push this project towards an animated series, or even a movie.

Illustrator, Writer and Co-Creator
A long time lover of video games, comic art, and all things animated, Marcus dedicated his young artistic years to fine tuning his illustration muscles by way of freelancing. Over eighteen plus years later, he's catching his stride and still ever growing in hopes of being a well rounded illustrator.
Stationed in Atlanta Ga, he spends most of his time toiling away late nights on everything from illustrating comic art, fan art, children’s books, to random character commissions and more. A proud father of two, he somehow manages to steal enough time to create loads of artwork and check homework. He's excited about the direction his comic properties are heading in, and looks forward to creating more forms of visual entertainment and stories to enjoy.
