New York City-based Stephane Metayer’s Nas-inspired graphic novel Tephlon Funk has caught our eye since it first began crowdfunding for its first issue two years ago, but we weren’t the only ones. The POC-centered story has also drew the attention of Willow Smith, and maybe even Nas, whose hometown of Queensbridge is the setting of the story.

As we reported a few months ago, Metayer is working on taking the the wave-making series to the next level, bringing it to the screen as an animated series.

After teaming up with fellow artist D’Art Shtajio to produce a minute-long concept teaser, Metayer is hoping to gain the attention of studio executives, and you can help by sharing the trailer!

Tephlon Funk “focuses on Inez Jozlyn from Queensbridge, New York who is like any ordinary fourteen year old with dreams and aspirations. While others around her aspire to a life of crime, Inez’s ultimate goal is simple. She wants to leave the gang, and drug infested community she’s known her entire life for a life without struggle.” The trailer introduces three other main characters as well.
