Landslide issue 1 Cursed ground. Cover by Jonny Hinkle and Raciel Avila Silva
Landslide issue 1 Cursed ground. Cover by Jonny Hinkle and Raciel Avila Silva

 

Massive malicious Monsters! From the beast under your bed to the creepy crawlies in your head, the very perspective of what defines a “Monster” fascinates me. Especially the big ones! Would it still be considered a monster if it was your compadre? What if you could manipulate a civilization crushing behemoth to do your bidding? If you could control your own monster, who would die first? These are questions I explore in 'Landslide Cursed Ground' as our main character Cecil happens to befriend an over sized earth devil. The Landslide setting is embedded in vibrant folklore, where I intertwine history with mythos to create a world where the arcane can walk again.

Experience the birth of this universe and help contribute to its manifestation. It is here that I invoke monsters of lore, resurrecting forgotten, or hidden entities into the Landslide comic series so that they may not only live again, but kick each other's ass across these pages in devastating kaiju battles.

 Maybe it's my love and deep respect of nature that Landslide came to life, crumbling out of my head like an avalanche, big, powerful and larger than life. I have always been surrounded by wild-lands and enjoy spending as much time as possible in those secret places, hidden from the slow deluge of man. I suspect it was there that these stories started to form, looking out over a vast landscape of hills and mountains, dreaming of one of those outcroppings rising from its earthly vice and marching off over the countryside.

I'm sure it's a lot of things, too many role playing games or monster flicks at midnight as a kid, or an overactive imagination that begs for a pen and paper to release creative pressure. I could go on reasoning why, but all that really matters is that this story is a part of me and wen the creators make the creation from themselves your bound to get something beautiful.
