Thank you for visiting my page, I deeply appreciate it.  My name is Alejandro and this is my first self published comic book series.  Here, as an introvert, standing on the high wire, trying not to look down as I relay the details of 'who I am' and 'why am I here.'  The why I am here comes down to my father:  An immigrant of over 60 years, working two jobs as long as I have lived, who guided me to drawing so I can live the dream he worked so hard for.  There is a long line of artists in my family and the only way to honor that gift is by continually working hard to build a career in the comic book industry.

"The Leather Of The Whip" is a story I've been working on for over 10 years and within the last year, I've been able to finally debut the first issue. The story begins from the moment of Jesus Christ's death and BEFORE his resurrection unto Heaven, Jesus descends into Hell to free all the souls.  Everything is not what it seems, where God is portrayed as more of the trickster and Lucifer proves his compassion for humanity by making the greatest grand gesture that flips the entire story of The Harrowing Of Hell on its’ end.

The best way I've been able to briefly describe the book is a combination of The Passion Of The Christ, Dante's Inferno and J. O'Barr's The Crow.

This is me, jumping off the cliff to see if I can fly.  Making this art, to me is as close to a spiritual experience than anything else.  Your support helps with the simplest of things I need to continue my project.  I'm always going to need paper and ink, brushes and paper.  Did I mention paper?  Paper.  And ink.  Also merchandise such as posters, shirts and more so I can prepare myself to jump on the comic convention train and make good art to send out to the Patreon world!

Please keep in mind:
Your pledge means more than you becoming a follower, it means that I can call you my friend.

Thank you,

A.

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
With this goal, I am able to cover the cost for printing and shipping of this series.  The books, printed on glorious glossy, full color pages from the best priced printing company on the market, grekoprinting-comixwellspring.com.

Along with the price of the books, I can continue creating this series using high quality comic book paper and ink.  High quality? Yes.  Expensive? No.  

Also, this goal covers the cost for my Dropbox account, which is what Greko/Comix Well printing uses to retrieve the PDF files for the books.
