In case, you’re too good for Indie comics/anime we wanted to let you guys know that Heaven’s Lost Rebellion just dropped and is available for purchase now!
What’s Heaven’s Lost Rebellion you may ask? Well, start reading! No seriously, here’s a small description but go buy it.
Heaven’s Lost Rebellion is a series stemming from my upbringing in the southern United States. Besides anime and manga, religions, mythologies, and the unexplained have always fascinated me. The lack of back-story in the Christian bible about the war in heaven seemed almost criminal to me. With the depth of thought and philosophy in titles such as Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Spriggan – plus the action of the 80’s and 90’s anime – I decided to write my own “humanized” version of a titanic war involving a family of angels. By re-imagining the few biblical lines through a saga utilizing elements of Japanese warrior philosophies, world mythologies, and science fantasy, I feel that I am artistically free to create not just my own personal story, but pay homage to the creators and mediums I hold so dear.
So how exactly did these two awesome people pull this off so well? Well here’s how!
Christopher Gunn is a writer/concept artist from Columbus, GA. He has been writing for a few years now, but creating characters and stories since his early childhood. He’s always been a fan of the Big Two, but around age nine, the Sci-Fi channel introduced me to Katsuhiro Otomo and “Akira.” Japanese anime and manga became a passion of his and creating art and stories inspired by top-notch classics – and all favorites since – his guilty pleasure.
Van Alencer is a Chilean artist that he met through posting an ad on deviant art, seeking an artist to redraw his character designs. His style was perfect, his sequential work impeccable, and they have been working together ever since. He is Gunn’s editor and illustrator for this flagship series. They are the core of American Gaijin Studios, along with a colorist, SLyP, and their English-Spanish translator, Julio Marambio.
