About

Inferi follows the adventures of 3 Quantico students and their Professor who travel the globe solving crimes committed by mythological creatures. Little do they know that's just the beginning as a shadowy organization watches their every move and makes plans of it's own to stop our intrepid heroes. 

Writer - Casey Bowker wrote his first comic book, Hollowed, last year based off of a movie script he wrote 15 years ago while attending film school. It was meant to be a pitch for the SyFy Channel, but instead it sat in a vault collecting dust until one day Casey uncovered the dark tome and decided to translate it into comic form. It was funded within 10 days and now he has delusions of grandeur in the comic book realm. When he's not writing comics he's the Co-Editor in Chief for geeky pop culture news site, dontforgetatowel.com

Writer - Ruben Romero was born to Venezuelan and Cuban Parents in Caracs, Venezuela on October 26th 1981. Moving to Miami, Fl at a young age Ruben learned very quickly he loved two things about America; Comic Books and Movies. In 2014 Ruben and his book The Agency were labeled a breakout success by Comixology and he was  invited to speak on their panel at New York City Comic-Con. Today Ruben is a new father with hopes to continue building worlds and passing his love for all things nerdy onto his son Rian Ezra.

Pencils & Inks - Rodrigo Catraca is a Comic Artist and Illustrator based in Brazil. He studied philosophy at Federal University of Alagoas.  He's always focused on studies about aesthetics and the interpretation of images in a specific scenario. He's collaborated with some Brazilian publishers like Graciliano Ramos, Sketch Comics, Lumix ArtFilms, DDA Productions, Zumbi dos Palmares Institute and others. He has also  worked with Marvel/Upper Deck, UMC Comics (Argentina) and other smaller publishers.

Colors - Avery Ferdinand is a freelance illustrator/designer from Baguio City, currently living in Antipolo Rizal Philippines. As an artist his influences are the works of Andrew Huerta, Dan Mumford and Mike Mignola. He does both illustration and coloring in both traditional and digital. He has worked for Weldon Studio as a colorist of Harland Buck Freesword, Dulce Comics, Unparalleled comics and more. He is also a winner of the 2012 MAgic the Gathering Grand Prix Manila shirt design contest and currently working on a new design for another MTG shirt illustration for Montreal Canada(local). He's inspired by different artforms such as Video Games, comics and movies.

 In addition to the fantastic art that Catraca has done throughout the book, we also were able to snag the talents of Alessandro Miracolo for a Goddess Ran Variant Cover, with Tan back on colors. We also entrusted the services of Paris Alleyne for a Quantico Variant Cover.

Liam (Six) - The Profiler. Seemingly has a 6th sense. Since a young age Liam has always known where things were headed until the night he cracked the Kryptos. His keen senses and humble heart will be tested on this new journey, the only question is: Can Liam lead the team through the perils ahead? 

Jackson (Jax) - The Detective. Son of famous FBI investigator and a loyal friend to Liam and Neelam.  Jax will be the north star of our team continuing to push them forward even when things are at their darkest. 

Neelam - The Scientist. Snarky, a technology whiz. Liam's adopted sister has always felt a little out of place. Her quick thinking and brave spirit will help her along the way but will her past be the team's downfall? 

Professor Able - The Teacher. Not much is known about him other than he's connected to a world much bigger than our own. Able Is the 'Giles' of the group; All knowing and always planning Professor Able will guide our team through the toughest of challenges.

 Coverage of the Comic

Nerds from the Crypt Podcast

Martin Dunn - Punkhouse Press - “Ruben and Casey have delivered an impassioned story with intriguing characters and witty dialog that could easily be mistaken as coming from a Kevin Smith script.” 

Matt Brassfield - Sparkle Comics - "This script reads really well and is a great idea for a comic, I also like how you can feel the influences and yet its total its own thing and universe. Also the art... is well done and this is a comic I would read even if I was not friends with you! Keep it up my friend as you are killing it!"

Brian Hawkins - Mad Cave Comics - "Ruben Romero is back! And this time with Casey Bowker and a creative team to boot --  And they’ve weaved an existential romp of an adventure that plays on the harp strings of decipherability. To go into this world, you must attempt to understand it, as the characters begin to unravel, decode, quest, and solve… Well, I can’t give you the whole story now can I? Just read it. Immerse yourself in the art. And enjoy."

Risks and challenges

Unless the Hellmouth opens up and starts sending creatures of the night out unto the world and Ruben and I are forced to save us...again; there will be very few risks. We're leaving a lot of time for printing and shipping, but things can sometimes come up to cause delays. We plan on being very transparent on any changes in the timeline that may occur and you can feel free to send me flaming bags of poo if you’re not satisfied to this email address infericomic@gmail.com.
