CURRENT PROJECT:
Kid Beowulf is an action-adventure, graphic novel series inspired by the epic poem, Beowulf. The story follows the adventures of 12-year-old twin brothers, Beowulf and Grendel, as they travel to distant lands and meet fellow epic heroes therein. Kid Beowulf is ideal for readers 9 and up who are fans of Bone, Amulet, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. It is written and drawn by cartoonist, Alexis E. Fajardo.



PROJECT STATUS: IN PRODUCTION

The fourth volume of Kid Beowulf, The Tarpeian Rock, is currently in production! I have penciled and inked over 100 pages and the story will be released exclusively on Patreon for my patrons  beginning in January 2020. In the meantime, patrons can watch me create the book right here via the patreon blog, where I will upload behind-the-scenes-making-of material as well as a plethora of other goodies from over ten years of creating Kid Beowulf.

If you'd like to catch up and read Kid Beowulf, then check the strip out on GoComics, where you can read book one, book two, and book three, absolutely free. You can also download the stories for your tablet via Comixology and if real books are your thing, then you can also find the graphic novels on Amazon, your favorite independent bookstore, or get them directly from me.  

Who is this Alexis E. Fajardo guy?

That's me – Lex Fajardo – an Eisner award winning editor and cartoonist. I'm a student of the classics and Kid Beowulf is a unique blend of comedy, literature, and high adventureall the things I love reading. When I'm not drawing comics, I work for them as Senior Editor at the Charles M. Schulz Studio in Santa Rosa, California, where I edit Peanuts books. I have written exhibition material for the Charles M. Schulz Museum and most recently won the 2018 Eisner Award for Best Archival Project for “Celebrating Snoopy” published by Andrews McMeel.

What's the deal with Patreon?


I love making comics and I have lots of stories I want to tell. Kid Beowulf has been my passion project for over twenty years, from it's first inception as doodle, to the latest 200 page graphic novel on my drawing board.

If you like Kid Beowulf (or just my work in general) then you can financially support it through Patreon. It lets you set an amount you can give per month and with that funding I can work on making more great stories.

Thanks for helping me make comics!
