Hey kids, Anibal here! Welcome to our rapidly expanding, revamped website. Yep, we’re going on seven years in the game as Mas. We did our first show together as a studio in October of 2008. In our time together, we’ve done a lot! We’ve met a lot of great people, some of whom we now consider great friends, even extended family. Keith Murphey and Hector Rodriguez from Guild Works Publications and the rest of the CAG (Comicbook Artists Guild) family, Chris Buchner, Alex
“The Ultimate Inker” Rivera, our go-to guy Joe Holley, The Free Lunch Comics crew Matt Ryan and Steve Kanaras, The Novastar Studios gang James “J-rod “Rodriguez, Emilio Rodriguez and Michelle St. Martin, Christian and Tony Montalvo from A.G.E. Studios aka The Alpha Godz, Ray “Bronx heroes” Felix and Chris Ducket, Eric Hutchinson from Inbeon Studios, the great Jerre Winsborro of Pyramid Graphic Novels, Justice Woman herself the multi-talented Vanessa Verduga, Omar (our ace in the hole) Solis, and his brother Jorge, long time fan turned fam Big Val, our good friends Robert Nuñez of Hybridborn Comic, Sam “The Crazy Man” Vera, and the talented Mario Gully whom we actually never met in person but through the magic of modern technology has become a good friend, supporter, and even contributor to our cause. We can’t forget Slick Rick Carzado without whom I wouldn’t be able to write this on my iPhone right now, just to name a few.
We have grown together creatively and have become somewhat of a fixture in the local convention
circuit. We’ve been to Boston, Baltimore, Philly, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Seattle, San Diego, and of course, every New York Comic Con hosted at the Jacobs Javitz Center. We have also consistently published new material for each show including Street Journal issues 1-3, Street Journal graphic novel volume one, Russ 5377 issues 1-6, Hot Tales Bad Asses anthology volume one, IAM (Independent Artist Movement) magazine and we have even expanded with the addition of the Future Scope line spearheaded by Jonathan, which premiered Lords of Nevada the preview book, last year; all of which I’m extremely proud of. However, the time has now come to reach beyond our comfort zones, to branch out and to really sink our teeth in.
2013 was an up and down roller coaster ride but an over all great year for us collectively. We set goals. We reached them and surpassed them. It’s my belief that we can continue to set goals and undoubtedly through hard work, focus and dedication, continue to achieve those goals and much more. One of my
personal goals for the coming year is to become more active as a writer. I won’t stop drawing altogether, but definitely want to have a few long lingering ideas on paper. I anticipate only the great feeling of sharing it with the public and maybe bringing a smile, a small stir of emotion or a different point of view to even just one person. Well I guess I’ve made it known so now I’m committed… yikes!!!! Just kidding folks, it’s more of a motivator for me this way. In conclusion, I want to thank my good friend, Rick Carzado, once again for believing in what we do enough to offer revamping the website. Great job brother- we owe you big time!!!
