Many years later in 1993 I read an article in the Chicago Tribune, which highlighted some African Americans who were being backed by a major comic company. This inspiration coupled with the encouragement of my wife, friends, and a small business loan I started my own publishing company (Epoch Publications), enabling me to produce my first comic book THE CIRCLE UNLEASHED. My first book caught the attention of channel 5 News Anchor Art Norman who featured me in a segment of his 1st Thing in the Morning News broadcast. Even as I was being interviewed individuals and schools called and ordered the first edition of The Circle.
The Circle Unleashed was followed by “Tsunami, The Irresistible Force”, a martial arts action/adventure comic. Other publications I produced are: the book “How To Create Your Own Comic Book” (an instruction book with art and Photoshop tips to help anyone produce their own comic book). Next, I supervised production of the adventure comic “The Black Arrow”. Later, I produced the Award winning book The Pest Invasion and The Pest Invasion II (in English and Spanish). For more than ten years I have been instructing comic book workshops and Photoshop classes for the Beverly Arts Center in Evergreen Park. Presently I am in the process of completing a 100 page Graphic Novel featuring “TSUNAMI, The Irresistible Force” for release also in 2014.
