Late last year, we took a big leap and launched our first crowdfunding campaign via kickstarter. It was perhaps the most stressful experience I’ve had in the 2 years that Lucha Comics has existed, but it was definitely one of the most satisfying as well. From a slow start, to getting into Bleeding Cool, and (just barely) crossing the finish line, I figured I was long overdue in reflecting on what I believe was our largest accomplishment to date.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, a den for everything comic book related, and of course that meant that I fell in love with everything comic book related. I remember watching Batman and X-Men cartoons on TV, sprinkled in between classics like GI Joe, Transformers, and Thundercats. As time has gone by our culture along with the quality and quantity of product has grown to extraordinary proportions, and I’m more than grateful to have a small part in all of this growth. I absolutely love indie creators and the passion they show for their product; it’s unmatched in any other industry and it pumps me up to see others so passionate about their comics. Often times indie creators are overlooked and under appreciated in the comic industry, so it’s my mission to shine a light on them and get their message out to the public.
I do reviews and opinion pieces for Comicbooked.com along with a team of really wonderful and really dedicated folks that share my love for everything comic related. We all have love for comics and comic creators like Lucha Comics and other indies. We love doing reviews and we love shining light on Kickstarter projects like The Kursk.
We believe in indie creators and we want more than anything for them to succeed so we attempt to shine a light on their projects for readers to consider and hopefully back. I encourage everyone to help and be a part of something great while assisting someone with their passion and making something they love come to life. There is no greater feeling than helping people and the best part is that in the end backers get great books to read, and know they were a part of the creation.
