‘Down’ and Updates.

Hello Again!

It’s been far too long. To make up for the lack of content lately, I though I’d drop something special.

A few months ago, I participated in Comic Book Hour anthology project “One Comic To Rule Them All” or OCTRTA. I had a great time collaborating once again with artist Javiera Argandoña, and meeting  artist Daniel Romero.

Currently Comic Book Hour’s host and mastermind  Jamie Me, is in the final stretch of a wildly successful kickstarter.  Within the featured rewards is the total OCTRTA Anthology, you should check it out.

Thanks for coming back! I’d like to now share with you our contribution to OCTRTA, ‘Down’. I’m posting the pages in a different format than usual so let me know what you think! Here’s a link to get started.

Thanks as always!

Welcoming Winter with a New Brahn Short

Thank you for the response to Blue Birds! It was the biggest project I’ve posted on here it was great to keep my content updating frequently.

As December starts, I realized I wasn’t entirely ready to end the year here at Aries. I had a project I was working on a few months ago that had to get delayed for a bit that is now ready to debut.

A bit back in June I introduced Brahn. He’s back. I rounded up Team Diaverik to return to for art duties to really have Brahn’s first two part story shine. amb3r returns for coloring! You may remember her from Green Day.

Thank you for stopping by! Here’s a link to get you started!

Blue Birds Concludes!

Part 4 has arrived! Marking the end of my most ambitious web project yet. It was my first time doing full lettering duties as well so this has been quite the learning experience.

Can we all take a moment to look at this beautiful cover  Javiera Argandoña  was generous enough to make for this story? It’s amazing! Her work on this story was great! Some people have even requested seeing her original artwork before it was colored, I might do a showcase sometime in the near future.

Also thanks to Fariz Muzakki for the colors once again. I think page four is the best looking page yet!

The Conclusion of Blue Birds!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall @ Aries Comics

Hello there everyone! It’s been far too long since I’ve had anything to share, summer time has come and past since then.

You may have noticed a character sketch of Kid Miracle rocking a seasonally appropriate outfit when you came here… Let me introduce Javiera Argandoña, she’s been a huge help on art duties for the latest Kid Miracle story!  Fariz Muzakki has also returned for color duties on this story.

Remembering the recent Free Comic Book Day- Bonus Kid Miracle

Hello Again!

It’s a little behind us now, but I thought I’d reminisce about Free Comic Book Day. It was May 6th , a little before 9 AM in front of my local Comic Shop when the idea for this blog post was born.

Free Comic Book Day is something I look forward to every year. It’s always a good time to get out and get some free stuff from the publishers, there’s usually some good deals around too. The fact that for the past few years I’ve been able to go see a Hollywood blockbuster adapting comic material has really amped up my anticipation. Overall a really good time to be into comics.  Here’s a snippet of the books I picked up.20170506_104203.jpg

I decided to get cracking on a web comic to go along with this blog post, something that was brewing in the back of my head while I was waiting in line that morning. I wrote up my script and reached out to a new team to bring it to life.

Ryo Kawakami was kind enough to provide art for this one. Fariz Muzakki lent his talents for the colors. You’ll be seeing some more from them in the near future here. I also went in and added some sound effects and the credits, but it was my first time doing it (be gentle). You can see the page right over here or go over to the web comic tab.

Thanks for reading!

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Kid Miracle in “Green Day”

It’s a been a little while! I hope you all have fun with whatever you’re doing tonight. I went and planned out a little comic with a St Patrick’s Day flavor to it to mark the occasion.

*I will have a updated,properly credited version of the page going up on the archives soon.

Team Diaverik returned for the glorious pencil and ink work. amb3r was there to help when I needed a colors, and they turned out great! Jamie Me helped me get lettered just in time for St Patrick’s Day evening, I pretty much parked this on his lawn a day ago and he managed to get back to me while doing his own comics and managing Comic Book Hour! (Too much responsibility for me-)

Have fun everyone! I plan on posting more updates soon, probably with some ‘behind the scenes’ development stuff.

Thanks!
