What it’s about
TEOTIHUACÁN is a new fantasy-adventure series bringing Aztec culture to modern day audiences. Centered around Alejo, a “no sabo kid” from LA and Quetz, an ancient Aztec god that’s accidentally ended up in Alejo’s body, the two must learn to work together to save the world from mystical threats. Think Percy Jackson meets Venom with an Aztec twist! Written by Mike Tenango (EVERAI webcomic) and illustrated by DC Milestone Initiative Artist Andrea Rosales, TEOTIHUACÁN mixes magic, monsters, and mythology to create an epic world of heroes and villains!

Project #3: Vampires on Mars #1

What it’s about
: Co-created by writer George O’Connor (Healed, Baby, Silent Knight for Homeless Comics), with art by Fernando Pinto (Rise of the Kung-Fu Dragon Master), through a mix of sci-fi, horror, and dark comedy, it’s a new series that begs the question, how much of your humanity—literally and figuratively—are you willing to give up to get what you want?

What’s really cool about this project is that not only are there “vampires on mars” which is enough for a good giggle, but each issue features an exclusive interview with astronomer and science writer Phil Plait (The Bad Astronomer, How the Universe Works, Bill Nye Saves the World)—A total bonus for science nerds!
