Carmona, Davis and Cortez Jr's form new comic imprint Truthful Comics
Since Image Comics' inception back in 92' many creators have chosen the route of independent comics publishing rather than the "Big 2" so the notion of three young creators joining forces to create their own voice in the industry is not surprising. What's surprising is that although Me (Project: New Wave) and Alvaro Cortez Jr (The mighty Warlord) have been friends for many years, when we decided to start a new comics imprint we've never even met Corey Davis in person; but decided to trust him regardless... the rest is history.
Our main focus with Truthful Comics besides telling the stories we wanted to tell without needing anyone's approval was that we were tired of the gimmicks by the "Big 2" and we felt we could do better than that. Each of our stories are different yet intertwined, and our characters will inevitably meet at some point down the road; I just hope people go along on this crazy ride with us. It's always a challenge to get readers interested in your books, especially since the price point on comics nowadays is so high; so it is our responsibility to bring the best stories possible and earn people's trust. Here are the three main titles under Truthful Comics...
Project: New Wave
Project: New Wave's main story revolves around a group of young heroes who were "adopted" by the government at a very young age due to "unique circumstances". All five members (Jason, Lin, Ran, Joyce and Ralph) are super powered orphans, trained as soldiers from an early age under the tutelage of Commander Maldonado; a ruthless man with a hidden agenda that tries to manipulate our young heroes and their abilities to gain what he desires the most... absolute power!
Paul Perkins is a normal 6th grader with normal 6th grader issues. Studying for a math test, being a big brother to his younger siblings and... saving the World. Paul must balance his everyday duties as Jet Boy, Section 17's new line of defense against a new found threat to humanity... the infamous organization known as K.R.O.N.O.S.!!!!

But what is Buy Indie Comics Day???
Buy Indie Comics Day is an event created so indie, small press, and local creators around the Globe could synergize on a single day designed to celebrate their work. It's our hope that retailers take this opportunity to stock up on indie comics, that consumers will take a risk on new comics and creators they've never heard of; and that creators have an event to push their project on. So if you're a creator, find a local comic shop and get in there! If you're a retailer, invite local creators to table at your shop and stock up on their work! And if you're a fan, buy a comic you've never heard of from someone you don't know... it might be the best comic you've ever read in your life!
