About Alexis Fajardo

That's me :) cartoonist and creator of Kid Beowulf, an action-adventure graphic novel series inspired history and mythology. It's a unique blend of comedy, literature, and high adventure (all the things I love reading). I began writing and drawing Kid Beowulf in 2000 when I created a BW zine and I've been creating it ever since.

When I'm not drawing comics, I work for them as Editorial Director 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 won the 2018 Eisner Award for editing the Best Archival Project Celebrating Snoopy published by Andrews McMeel.

What's the deal with Patreon?

I love making comics and I have lots of stories to tell. Kid Beowulf has been my passion project for over twenty years, from its first inception as doodle, to the newest 200 page graphic novel on my drawing board. Enjoy a free sample story Lookin' For Lingonberries!

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: AS OF 2021 NEW WORKS ARE IN PRODUCTION
I finished the newest adventure, The Tarpeian Rock (book four) last year and released it weekly and exclusively right here for patrons throughout 2020. Right now I'm working on new stories so patron posts will feature work in progress updates until a new story is ready to launch again.

The Tarpeian Rock has been archived here on patreon and the complete 200 page graphic novel is available to patrons (new and old) to read in full. A print version of the book is slated for a 2021 release.


If you'd like to read more 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 find the graphic novels on Amazon, your favorite independent bookstore, or get them directly from me.  

And join the adventure right here on patreon for brand new stories!
