VERDADEROS AFICIONADOS

CREADORES LOCALES PRESENTAN SU MATERIAL

LA FIRMA LOCAL 656 COMICS ES PUBLICADA EN REVISTA DE RENOMBRE MUNDIAL.

La presentación oficial de la revista Heavy Metal de primavera del 2009 se llevará a cabo el sábado 4 de abril en LA CRIPTA COMIC BOOK SHOP ubicada en Ave. de la Raza esq. Américas.
A partir de las 11 de la mañana que se abran las puertas, los creadores de Battery Acid, Alex Riegel, Oliver Lee Arce y Ray Ramos estarán disponibles a los fans para contestar preguntas, firmar autógrafos y hacer sketches.
Una sesión de preguntas y respuestas se llevará a cabo con los miembros de la prensa a las 4:00 PM.
La famosa revista de fantasía y ciencia ficción Heavy Metal publica desde los 80 sólo a los mejores artistas gráficos y escritores del género del mundo.

Battery Acid cuenta la historia de Ginger, la super sexy cazarecompensas interestelar y su compañero Sparkz, un gusanoide mujeriego, quienes cruzan la galaxia en busca de las más bellas féminas para la colección privada/zoológico de un misterioso contratante.

Alex Riegel y Ray Ramos (El Paso, TX) tuvieron la oportunidad de contactarse con Kevin Eastman, creador de las Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Las Tortugas Ninja) y propietario de Heavy Metal.
“Fue genial” comentó Ramos, “Alex (Riegel) y yo nos acercamos a la mesa de Kevin en el San Diego Comic-Con 2007 y le enseñamos nuestro trabajo. Le encantó el arte y nos pidió algo de nuestro trabajo. Nos dijo “Están adentro” y esa fue toda la confirmación que necesitamos para ponernos a chambear”.

“Ha sido uno de mis sueños estar en Heavy Metal” dijo Riegel. “Cuando me di cuenta que iba a estar junto con los maestros como Moebius, Jodorosky, Simon Bisley, Milo Manara, por nombrar a algunos”

Y aquí es donde Juárez entra en esta historia, pues los creadores y editores de 656 CÓMICS, de esta ciudad fronteriza están involucrados de gran manera.
Oliver Lee Arce, creador de Los Meksmen, es quién a petición de Adversary Comics y aprobado por la misma Heavy Metal fue quien diseñó e hizo las tintas y los tonos grises para darle el acabado profesional que requiere un trabajo de esta categoría.

La cita es el sábado 4 de abril a las 4 de la tarde en LA CRIPTA COMIC BOOK SHOP. Habrá un número limitado de revistas HEAVY METAL SPRING 2009 disponibles a la venta para pedir autógrafos y convertirlos en artículos de colección.

Esta es una buena oportunidad de conocer a las futuras estrellas del noveno arte, platicar sobre su historia de éxito y verlos trabajar en un sketch que puede ser tuyo.

Spring 2009
EL PASO/ JUAREZ COMIC BOOK CREATORS FEATURED IN WORLD FAMOUS HEAVY METAL MAGAZINE!

ADVERSARY COMIX’ BATTERY ACID created in El Paso, TX, is being featured in the current issue of the world re-known sci-fi fantasy magazine Heavy Metal.

Adversary Comix is proud to announce the premiere of El Paso natives’, Alex Riegel and Ray Ramos’ original story and characters being published by the internationally popular and prestigious graphic magazine HEAVY METAL!

The story tells the tale of an intergalactic drop dead sexy female bounty hunter named Ginger and her slug like, cigar chomping, womanizing alien sidekick, Sparkz as they travel the interstellar star ways looking for the most gorgeous women to have ever existed on behalf of a mysterious benefactor/collector, for his private zoo-like collection.

Ray Ramos, the writer of the series is an El Paso native and was drawn to the series after he and artist Alex Reigel had a chance encounter with Kevin Eastman, the creator of the legendary Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and proprietor of Heavy Metal Magazine. “It was amazing!” Ramos states, “Alex (Riegel) and I just walked up to Kevin’s table at San Diego Comic-Con 2007 and we showed him our work. He instantly fell in love with the art and said he wanted work. Eastman said “you’re in.” and that was all the invitation and confirmation we needed to get our butts in gear!”

“It’s always been a dream of mine to be in Heavy Metal.” Riegel says. “When I realized is was going to be among the masters, such as Moebius, Jadorosky, Simon Bisley, Milo Manara, just to name a few! Anyone can get picked up my Marvel or DC comics to draw Spider-Man or Batman, but only a prestigious few can actually say, hey, OUR characters got picked up to be in Heavy Metal!”

And how does Juarez fit into any of this, well 656 COMICS, the premiere comic book publishers south of the border are involved in a major way. “When we started work on Battery Acid, we knew early on that we needed to include one of the best graphic artists we knew, and that would be the creator of the MEKSMEN, Oliver Lee Arce!
