  • A little bit about me: I'm a proud full time single dad of 2 boys; I've been in the comicbook industry since 2010 with small contracts here & there, also working a short Wolfdragon story that was put aside for my full time university studies in 2012-2013. Done in December 2016-2017. My first published creation was Nat the merc in 2012-2013 and thus the Nat-verse was born, a series of multiple short stories leading to a mini series & eventually an ongoing series. Last December, I completed my Bachelors and now, I'm starting my self-publishing enterprise and have been hard at work putting this book together and on my 2 next books in progress; Opera Omnia & Nat the merc: the mini-series with the help of my buddy David Vila.  (More info to come).
