DETROIT – February 8, 2022 – Verse Comics USA, which focuses on developing the most diverse, compelling and unique stories imaginable in the graphic novel and comic book formats, is pleased to announce it is partnering with Dale Brown to release an original comic book series. Brown is best known for being the founder of Detroit Urban Survival Training (D.U.S.T.) and the creator of wildly popular viral Instagram and YouTube videos.
The series, which is intended for a PG-13 audience, centers on Brown and his career with D.U.S.T. The series will be created and written by B. Van Randall, illustrated by Dorilys Giacchetto, and published by Verse Comics USA.
Brown, a U.S. Army veteran and threat management expert with more than 25 years of experience in the field, went viral on social media after memes were made using his self-defense and preventive threat management techniques. Brown’s social media presence and popularity spawned a clip on TMZ Sports, meetings with Snoop Dogg and Royce da 5’9”, a “Saturday Night Live” skit, and a host of other burgeoning entertainment opportunities currently in negotiations.
“Partnering with Dale Brown is a highlight for Verse Comics USA, and we look forward to sharing this book with fans everywhere,” said Randall.
Verse Comics USA is a Michigan-based company founded by Randall (@bvanrandall), the award-winning creator of the riveting and acclaimed graphic novel and motion comic series “Therians: The Awakening.” Verse Comics USA recently partnered with Instagram star and comedian HaHa Davis (@HaHaDavis) to produce the graphic novel series “Beyond Me,” and with Grammy-nominated rap artist Yukmouth (of the Luniz) to create the graphic novel series “P: The Legend of Yukmouth,” which is set to have part 2 of issue 1 released later this year.
