Beyond – the queer sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology – is now LIVE on Kickstarter!

Featuring 18 stories from 26 creators, Beyond is a 250 page, black and white, queer comic anthology, full of swashbuckling space pirates, dragon slayers, monster royalty, and death-defying astronauts.  Each story celebrates and showcases unquestionably queer characters as they have adventures, mix magic, explore the galaxy, and save the day.

The project is now funding! Help support the Beyond Anthology on Kickstarter!

The Beyond anthology Kickstarter is finally live! I drew an 11-page story in here (called Luminosity) written by my buddy gabbysilang and I’m so excited it’s finally making it’s way into the world.

There are so many fantastic creators in this book. I can’t wait to read the whole thing! Go check it out for yourself. :)

I’ll be tabling at LA Zine Fest this weekend.

tumblr_nhy5d1MqR41qktg7xo1_500

Sunday, February 15th at Homenetmen Glendale Ararat (3347 North San Fernando Road, Los Angeles, CA 90065) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

LA Zine Fest is free to attend and is full of amazing creators of zines and mini-comics. It was my favourite show in 2014 and I’m stoked to be able to exhibit at it again this Sunday.

Table numbers haven’t been assigned yet but I’ll be listed as Mixtape Comics on the program map. I’ll have copies of Frankie Comics #1 through #3, posters, stickers, and original art. I’ll probably be drawing behind the table (something I never do at shows) so come out to watch that magic happen.

Read more about the show (and this years exhibitors) at www.lazinefest.com
