Watch Omar Epps speak about Nubia: The Awakening at this year's NYCC

Star of silver screen Omar Epps spoke at NYCC about telling the Afrofuturist story Nubia: The Awakening

Star of shows like House and This is Us, Omar Epps has portrayed memorable characters that continue to resonate with audiences. Now, Epps is getting behind the writing desk for a foray into the world of YA lit, as he and co-author Clarence A. Haynes tell the story of three refugees surviving in a post-apocalyptic NYC, Nubia: The Awakening. Join New York Times Book Review Editor MJ Franklin in conversation with Epps, streaming here on Popverse.

Popverse filmed this and many other panels at New York Comic Con this year (see the complete line-up here), which you can watch in one of two ways - by becoming a Popverse member at the 'Fan' level (or higher), or by buying a NYCC digital ticket. The NYCC digital ticket gives you access to all of the filmed panels from New York Comic Con 2022, as well as access to long-form interviews and original reporting from the Popverse editorial team. The Popverse annual membership does that for the entire year, and would include live video panels from the upcoming MCM London Comic Con, as well as next year's Emerald City Comic Con and C2E2.

Popverse filmed the entire conversation from the panel, with the companies hosting the panel blacking out the screenings, trailers, and new footage - as they intended for that footage to only be seen by those in attendance in the panel room.
