JAVILAND is a podcast that features a roundtable discussion by comic creators about issues related to storytelling, publishing, branding, etc. Good insights for beginners as well as cartoonists currently self-publishing their own work.
I'm a DIY cartoonist, creator of such comics as EL MUERTO, MANIAC PRIEST and WEAPON TEX-MEX, which I publish under my own imprint, LOS COMEX. I'm also the Associate Producer of the award-winning El Muerto live-action film adaptation and in 2011 I co-founded the LATINO COMICS EXPO, the nation's first convention dedicated to spotlighting Latino creators. I teach comic book workshops throughout Los Angeles in schools and libraries.
