Today marks the 25th anniversary of Bloodstrike #1! As I’m revving up for the June release of my mini-series, Bloodstrike: Brutalists, I wanted to celebrate my favorite undead government squad by taking a deep dive into their publishing history. Along the way, I’ll add commentary on the aspects that helped inform Brutalists and what I love about this specific Rob Liefeld-created roster. It’s a lot to cover, so let’s get into it!
Category: Comics I Make
My comic book work includes Fut Miso and Panorama. Also thrown in there are a few collaborations as well as some early works. Zegas, my main comic book project, has its own category.

C O P R A #31
What does a political sex cult, a drug deli, and vigilante justice have in common? They’re Castillo’s Saturday night, that’s what. Catch this rare glimpse into the mind of Copra’s top enforcer in this painfully personal war on crime in COPRA #31!
NEGATIVE LAND! The new Copra Press series can be read exclusively on Patreon.
Additionally, I’ll be posting tons of behind-the-scene Copra art and How-To essays.
Oh, and commissions – check it out and spread the word!
C O P R A #29
COPRA #29 is here!
Two stories for the price of one! Our lead story features the reunited Copra members making a hasty “escape” from Compota Kingdom.
The back end showcases Team X trying to ambush a target with dangerously mixed results, as these few preview pages promise…
And here are a few close-up shots that I took as I was working on these pages. Not as messy as I expected!
