I was able to fulfill a childhood dream of mine: getting a comic book published. 12 year old me would think I was so cool right now and wouldn't believe this is happening to us. I had always spoken to friends about writing a story that I could illustrate. After many unsuccessful attempts, I decided to take a stab at writing a story myself. This initially started as a personal project but then grew into something bigger.
As the story progressed, Scout Comics was interested in publishing the work. This was super helpful because I don't think I would've been ready to handle the shipping and logistics involved with this because I wanted to focus on the story.
This project is a dream come true. My first published comic series, Thud. I like to describe the story as having an Eastman and Laird's TMNT feel, with a little bit of Frank Miller's Daredevil with humor and nods to hip hop.
The first arc of this comic series is 8 issues with anywhere from 30-40 pages each. I did the writing, drawing, and lettering in each book with editorial work done by Andrea Molinari.
