Company Updates

Diversity and representation in fictional content is essential for most fans. Creating characters with various ethnicities and backgrounds is not just a matter of representing reality. It also helps media consumers identify with characters, dream big about their future, and develop empathy and respect for differences.

To resolve the lack of representation of black characters in comic books, Black Sands Entertainment creates various comics featuring black characters. The company’s early traction and the positive trends of the market made it a Deal to Watch during its two last raises, which closed in February and December 2020, respectively. I reached out to Black Sands Entertainment founder and CEO Manuel Godoy to learn more about the company’s progress over the last 2 1/2 years.
