Dear Reader,

Today is the beginning of the weekly Captain Unikorn webcomic. Christian and I originally self-published and sold out of 200+ copies at the Phoenix Comicon and Tucson Comic-Con this past year. We decided to release the entire book as a free webcomic so that anyone around the world can enjoy it. Please keep in mind, we created this book in b&w (because it’s cheaper to print), but we plan on launching a Kickstarter project to print the book in full color in the near future.

Thanks for taking a chance and please click the follow button so you don’t miss a single page of the story.

Thanks again,

Henry Barajas

Captain Unikorn will be made available online for free starting on Wednesday March 13th.

Here’s the Cover for book one, art by Christian Vilaire.

The webcomic will be in black and white because we originally created that for printing costs . We are currently developing a Kickstarter project in near future so we can print the book in color.

So come back every Wednesday starting March 13th until the end of book one. This will be a crazy 40 weeks.

Catpain Unicorn/Unite and Take Over!

Phoenix Comicon was a burst of inspiration and the much needed creative jolt.  I think for everyone around me.  Everyone I know that came from the event was just reminded how awesome it is to create.

I spent the weekend with Christian’s family.  We have outlined our next three comic book projects and one of them is Captain Unicorn.

We have deciced to make a comic that is original and empowering to everyone.   As much as I love rehashing out the same old 60’s super heroes, but I want to tell you something that you have been looking for.  A new idea.

Here is some preview art of the three part mini series.  If Dexter season six and “life” doesn’t get  in the way, you should have three new comics out before TCC.

Friend C.V. and I on Facebook to get the most update information on our current projects.

We are currently focusing our energy towards a comic book anthology called “Unite and Take Over” with Spaz Dog Press.  All the stories are inspired by The Smiths/Morrissey music.  C.V. and I signed up and picked “Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One Before” as our influence.  The script is finished and off to C.V. and the book is supposed to debut at the Tucson Comic Con!

 

Secret projects and big stuff coming this year.  We got six months left, so lets make them count.

Phoenix Comicon '11 May 26-29th

Phoenix Comicon '11 May 26-29th

 May is officially my busiest month and I couldn’t have it any other way. Evil Robo and myself (which I’m a part of, so there is no confusion) were invited to this year’s Phoenix Comicon 2011. I have been an attendee for as long as I can remember and now I’m the official guest list. A very different experience for me, and it’s awesome.

I will be at Phoenix Comicon at Artist Alley #649 alongside my good buddies Matt Howard, Eric Schock, Johnny Redman V, Santino A Castaneda, and on Sunday my comic booker and friend Arnie Bermudez. I am one hundred and ten percent thankful to Jesse James Criscione, the “Six Shooter”. He is a very generous and kind person that took pity on us. In return the Evil Robo Presents preview issue that is exclusively to the con and Jesse James Comics variant. It was that or flowers, so I thought he would like the flowers brought to him by a man in a Hawk Eye costume.

The much anticipated Evil Robo Productions Ash Tray Comics #9 is making it’s debut at Phoenix Comicon!  I co wrote a story with Matt Howard called “Dwight Danger: Zombie Hunter”.  His art work on this is steallar and I covered it with words, shame on me.  Also some of Eric’s Bald Avenger, Taylor’s Pontintal and Sasa Bralic’s Diver is in this issue.  They just keep getting better and better with every issue.  Come out get some sketches purchase some funnies and have a good time!
