Jaimel Hemphill, creator at National Press Comics

Jaimel Hemphill’s comic book hobby grew into a passion. He and his friends launched National Press Comics, a publishing company in Oakland with diverse characters and genres. He stopped by to talk comics and wound up sharing a funny wrestling story.

I decided I can do this. I can make my own books.

You can find Jaimel and other National Press Comics artists at First Fridays in Downtown Oakland.
