Interview with Jose Jaro and Kenny Groom
Project: Unknown #1 is done. It has been printed. It is in my hand. Yet the more I try to make comics, the more I'm realizing they will never really feel complete. It also took a very long time because of my worst enemy; me.
I once wrote briefly about my love for this comiXology and it's Guided View format. In addition I was a fanatic for their stellar podcast. A while back, a book was mentioned on the show called Fallen which was created and written by a frequent letter writer, Ryan Garcia. This vigilante story captured so many elements of what drew me to comics as a kid in the 90’s, while maintaining the sophistication that kept me reading as an adult
What Chris Claremont and my stepfather have in common.
Hyper-Sense is a comic created by my good friend and brother in the panel trenches, Eduardo Santamarina. For anyone undertaking their own creative endeavors, I recommend working with someone close who is going through the same process. But more on that in a later post.
In my quest to discover the relative unknown, I was stopped in my tracks by the vibrancy of a book called Everland, which as of the date of this posting, is days away from ending a successfully funded kickstarter campaign for the second issue.
I was compelled to contact the sole creator, in hopes he would share his journey with me. Get to know Dan Lee…
Just a few reasons why I am excited to be part of the comiXology family.
Project: Get Known! - This blog aims to spotlight indie comic book creators and their independent works. Recently, I discovered a comic called Kopykat and the BombSquad, which was completely created, written, and drawn by Corey Taylor. I enjoyed this book's energy and originality that I wanted to reach out to him. Get to know Corey Taylor...
I decided to reflect on the comics that infected me with the desire to want to create my own comics. These aren't what I'd consider the best but rather the comics which came into my life at particular times: as a kid, a teenager, an adult. These comics fanned the flames. They are the works that had the greatest influence in my pursuit to create comics.
This title is sensationally misleading but not exactly 100% false.
Let me start by saying, anyone who tells you not to meet your idol is an idiot. Advice like that comes from the opinion that once you see the human faults of your demigod, all you hold dear with high esteem comes crumbling down. But here's why it's wrong:
Project: Get Known! -Hyper-Sense is comic also featured on this site which was created by Eduardo Santamarina. And when I say created, it was all done by this one guy. He did the words and art (just look at those colors!) in every single panel but more than that, he created a great new super hero story and a team book. You cant really find that these days anymore or done well, but he captures everything exciting I found from these types of books when I was a kid. My closest comparison (with the highest praise) would be it echoes of Gen13.
Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places.
