I guess I lied. Not intentionally of course but here we are a few years later.
I guess quite a bit has happened, but none of that here.
Setbacks aplenty, most out of my control. It’s depressing.
Anyway here’s a incomplete project that was supposed to be a twice monthly comic “The Bastards” posted right here on the site. In this very rare case I’m not crediting the artist, because they have chosen to abandon this project not once but twice and failed to deliver the work. This has been a reoccurring theme among contracted artists for me and it is beyond frustrating. I snapped together some lettering and my friend https://www.instagram.com/emmanuelsaintromain/ helped with some corrections.
Well I’ll just post it here below. Don’t worry I know it’s been a while but it’s not like Aries Comics is dead.
Or is it?

‘Down’ and Updates.

Hello Again!

It’s been far too long. To make up for the lack of content lately, I though I’d drop something special.

A few months ago, I participated in Comic Book Hour anthology project “One Comic To Rule Them All” or OCTRTA. I had a great time collaborating once again with artist Javiera Argandoña, and meeting  artist Daniel Romero.

Currently Comic Book Hour’s host and mastermind  Jamie Me, is in the final stretch of a wildly successful kickstarter.  Within the featured rewards is the total OCTRTA Anthology, you should check it out.

Thanks for coming back! I’d like to now share with you our contribution to OCTRTA, ‘Down’. I’m posting the pages in a different format than usual so let me know what you think! Here’s a link to get started.

Thanks as always!

Welcoming Winter with a New Brahn Short

Thank you for the response to Blue Birds! It was the biggest project I’ve posted on here it was great to keep my content updating frequently.

As December starts, I realized I wasn’t entirely ready to end the year here at Aries. I had a project I was working on a few months ago that had to get delayed for a bit that is now ready to debut.

A bit back in June I introduced Brahn. He’s back. I rounded up Team Diaverik to return to for art duties to really have Brahn’s first two part story shine. amb3r returns for coloring! You may remember her from Green Day.

Thank you for stopping by! Here’s a link to get you started!

Blue Birds Concludes!

Part 4 has arrived! Marking the end of my most ambitious web project yet. It was my first time doing full lettering duties as well so this has been quite the learning experience.

Can we all take a moment to look at this beautiful cover  Javiera Argandoña  was generous enough to make for this story? It’s amazing! Her work on this story was great! Some people have even requested seeing her original artwork before it was colored, I might do a showcase sometime in the near future.

Also thanks to Fariz Muzakki for the colors once again. I think page four is the best looking page yet!

The Conclusion of Blue Birds!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall @ Aries Comics

Hello there everyone! It’s been far too long since I’ve had anything to share, summer time has come and past since then.

I’m ecstatic to report the return of some new comic content here right now! You may have noticed a character sketch of Kid Miracle rocking a seasonally appropriate outfit when you came here… Let me introduce Javiera Argandoña, she’s been a huge help on art duties for the latest Kid Miracle story!  Fariz Muzakki has also returned for color duties on this story.


Here’s a link to get started!

Hope you enjoy! More to come soon!

Enter Brahn!

Introducing Brahn!

Brahn is character I had thought up a while back, so had Team Diaverik draw this early design. I wanted all my characters to be unique and instantly recognizable from  one another so I think you’ll see a big difference between him and Kid Miracle.

I can’t say too much about Brahn right now, but I have big plans for him. He’s gone through quite a few different drafts, names, and characteristics but I think I’m pretty close. Close enough to give him a debut like this.


I put together a test page for Brahn a while back and I’m ready to show it off. This version of Brahn isn’t entirely final, but with the help of my collaborators it’s a big step forward.  Ryo Kawakami reported for art duties,  on colors Fariz Muzakki stepped in. Here it is!

As always, thank you for stopping by!

‘Better Late than Never’- Christmas Miracle

Alright here we are 2017, I hope you all had a good end of the year! Thanks for coming back to check out the first half of Christmas Miracle!

Once again Team Diaverik returns for art duties and makes spirits bright. Jamie Me also comes back to add a little cheer onto this one.

That’s all for now! I hope to be back as soon as possible with some updates and the conclusion of Christmas Miracle  for ya!

Welcome to Aries Comics! Kid Miracle- Democracy Dilemma


Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas! (if that’s your thing)

Thank you for coming to by to see Aries Comics first post! I hope to post more as I soon as they come along. I have a Christmas special coming in fashionably late that I hope you stay tuned for.

So about the comic above, I wrote it about a month ago just to have a bit of fun during the political season, the least fun of all seasons.

The art was masterfully produced by Team Diaverik, who do an amazing job turning my written rambles into amazing looking pages. Expect more from them here soon.

Jamie Me handled the letters for me on this one and I can’t thank him enough. I had to do 2 rewrites to make all my dialogue fit and he never complained once.

Thanks for stopping by, here’s hoping to see you again!
