The Prey - page 1 of 4

The Prey

Occasionally, a note of the news paper can serve as inspiration for a story. That's the case I present below. The incident in question occurred in Southeastern Mexico, where animals like the tapir are considered an endangered species extisión and survive within nature reserves.


What happened to the real life Tapir, is the pretext for this history of Science Fiction, located in Mexico, which I present below. I have entitled "The Prey".

Mr. Dreamy and the Brain



This week I am preparing a very special project because it's the first in which the script development and drawing is with completely new characters. Meanwhile, to fulfill my promise to upload a comic every Wednesday, I present on this occasion I drew a bead ... 10 years ago! Made especially for "La Tira de Dreamys", a webcomic strip published in dreamers.com. The script is from Juanmito.

Mr. Dreamy is the mascot of dreamers.com, Superman is owned by DC Comics, Animaniacs are the property of Warner Bros.

They say the worst way to post a Webcomic is through Blogger, the best is by Wordpress, using ComicPress. However, whenever I let go of what people say. I have found that Blogger is relatively easy to customize and I could make it appear more or less close to that of a professional Webcomic. Only time will tell whether I was right in the meantime, here are the first page of my first "professional" Webcomic.

When I was about 18 years, I read the story of Nathalie Charles Henneber entitled "Fishers of the Moon" and I loved it. Since then I have tried to adapt the comic, the first time without much success, and that is in my DeviantArt. On this occasion, for the final course Comics and Graphic Narrative that just concluded, I decided to use the stories summarized in eight pages. On the first page know Huge Page, test pilot of the future which is not very happy in his time and ready to travel to another time when a machine invented by the Cronos Corp., but then ... good, better read on the Webcomic.

I will take these posts to mention music and movies that I like.
The song this week: Viva la Vida by Coldplay.
The film of the week: Spiderman.

Proyecto Comics - Introduction

Comics Project - Introduction


1992 was a year that left a mark on my life. That year happened in the world of comics, "The Death of Superman", and thus began the "Comic Boom" of the early 90s.

I was 19 years old and finishing my second year of studies in architecture at the abattoir. I was fortunate to have two good friends and colleagues, Chepo and Taboada (if they ever get to read these lines, I send an affectionate greeting) who shared with me the love of sequential art. We began to write scripts for two stories, one of science fiction and another of sorcerers and warriors, who came to see some pages published in school magazines.

At that time I got my hands a book called "The Comics of Mao" (Gustavo Gili Edit.. Barcelona, 1976) Gino Nebiolo, Jean Chesneaux, and the famous Umberto Eco, which seriously address the issue of Comics, and how Chinese culture has been valued far higher than in Western culture. The conclusion I drew from this reading is that the comic is more a literary device, as valid as are the story and the novel, particularly as a means of effective communication.

Later, I was fortunate to talk briefly with a local artist who made me a gift, one of the most valuable I have received, this is the book "Understanding Comics" author Scott McCloud, through which I understood to make a Comic not just "paint monkeys to see what comes out" that the comic has a "grammar", a structure of characteristics and, above all, an art, is the Sequential Art.

Since then, with that in mind, I've been trying to make comics of a certain quality, and some results you can see my DeviantArt page, mostly on his own.

I recently had the opportunity to take a diploma course on Fiction and Comics given by Ivan Escalante, BA in Visual Arts, a graduate of the College of Arts of Yucatan, a very talented guy and experience in the middle of the Comics, of which I learned many things that must be taken into account when making a comic. This diploma is my first approach to the professionalization of my attempts self-taught.

As a result I managed to finish an 8-page short story, based on a story by Natalie Charles Henneberg called "Fishers of the Moon", published several years ago in an anthology of science fiction stories. He summarized, as adapted and the result is 8 pages that publish in the next inning.

And so begins my adventure in the world of comics, this project is to publish in this way, periodically, the stories to be developed. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed making them. Above all, I hope your criticism, I discovered that you can learn a lot from them.

I invite you to read the first comic of this blog.

New English Version

Comics Project

Welcome to Comics Project

Due to the fact that my blog Proyecto Comics has received many visits from Mountain View, California, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Schaumburg, Ilinois, I decided to open an English version.

So this is the English version of Proyecto Comics. It means Comics Project and the purpose is to publish the webcomics that I publish in the Spanish blog at the same time. I sincerely hope you enjoy it and remember, you can comment and criticize them with confidence.
