I would have sent this message to all of you a month ago when my new project launched, but I didn't know I could until today. All of you were such amazing supporters of CANTANKEROUS when my partners and I tried to launch that project in 2012, and I thought you might want to come and see what we're up to now.
Two of us (Joseph Karg and Elio Guevara) have created a wonderful new project called El Grande that has just reached its $10,000 goal today. How amazing is that? Answer: Very Amazing!
We have learned a lot since our experience with Cantankerous. Our biggest takeaway from that experience was to wait until our project was finished before presenting it to the public. That is what we've done. El Grande is a 72 page fully illustrated and completed graphic novel ready for you to read. All you have to do is follow the link above or this one right here and you're ready to go.
Check out a description of the project and some of our sample images below and then come see the rest on our page and our updates. We've posted tons of concept art and sample panels in the updates, so don't miss out. We could not be more proud of this project and we hope you like it too.

What is "El Grande"?
"El Grande" is a graphic-novel meditation on mortality from Joseph Karg (Archer, Chozen) and Elio Guevara (Spectrum) that speaks with a skeptical voice about the future of our most closely held beliefs, our destiny as people, and our planet.
"El Grande Volume 1: The Worm" is the first installment of a six-part, genre-bending series set to feature tales of addiction, humor, love, and redemption in a drug-altered and chaos-fueled future that is already too close for comfort. At its heart is a mix of late-19th-century imagery and contemporary cutting-edge artwork by Elio Guevara giving form to a critical and comedic story by Joseph Karg.
