I've been creating and self-publishing comics for a few years now, most notably the action series COPRA. Starting out as my love letter to vigilante superhero comics, COPRA quickly developed into two things: my main avenue for storytelling and my first full-time comics gig. COPRA took over and hasn't let go. I wouldn't have it any other way.



I'm in the special position of having juggled every aspect of the production chain for the 30 plus comics in the Copra Press catalog. Meaning that aside from creating a 24 page, full-color comic on a regular basis, I also take care of the business side of things: from shipping & handling to inventory & distribution. Now that Image Comics has stepped in to publish the serialized COPRA comic, I can fully concentrate on making the comic itself. That's where you come in.

Your contributions will not only help with the production aspects here at Studio Copra, but I'll  get the chance to focus and produce new issues of COPRA with the unique stamp of quality it's known for. I'll also share detailed accounts of being a modern day creator/self-publisher, thorough posts about my influences, and rare behind-the-scene art & designs.

I couldn't have made it this far without the enthusiasm of all the COPRA fans out there -- it's driven a life-changing momentum for me that is difficult to ignore. Here's an opportunity to take it further, to get deeper into things, and to continue to forge ahead into new, exciting territory together!
