For the Teen and up readers Blackhole Universe will travel around our world of heroes and villains! The first issue starts with the origin story of a major Blackhole villain; Cynical. The second story stars The Brick as he fights off the Five Headed Dragon Clan to protect his greatest secret!
In a lighter, all ages book, Quinn-Finity pairs unstoppable imagination with unlimited power in her first issue. The story titled “Universal Razzle Dazzle Dragon Boogers” pits Quinn against some booger stealing Punk-bots! She’ll have to become heroes like Razzle Dazzle, Popcorn Kid, and even Dragon Girl to stop them!
We’ll continue to release our books digitally as well as in print moving forward, so if we aren’t in a shop nearby, you can still get your fix! Go catch up on these titles today!
It takes a while to get these issues done with the budget restraints we’re on, but we’re hoping with the moves we’ve made this year, that will get better. In the meantime, to all our patient fans out there, Thank You, and we want you to know we’re working. We have both Quinn-Finity #2 and Proton #2 in the Que right now! They will release this year, Quinn-Finity #2 this summer, and Proton #2 not too far behind it in late summer/early fall. Both Ruben and Brian are grinding out the art, and the quality of these books is top notch in my opinion!
As “proof of life” I thought it would be pretty cool to let loose some preview art from the #2’s in the works, so check these out!
We’re really excited about all the projects we’re planning on getting out this year, and we’re pushing to get them out as soon as possible, so stay tuned! Until then remember; The World is Ours to Make!
Free Comic Book Day happens every year on the first Saturday in May. This year, that happens to be May 7th 12pm-6pm, and believe me when I say this is an event! Richmond Comix knows how to do it right too! They have sales, artists doing free sketches for kids, costumes, and of course, they have us!
Blackhole Comics will be set up at a table with FREE sketch cards of our heroes and villains, drawn by local artists! Kids can come by and get these free pieces of original art to keep, or to trade! Also, we’ll have blank sketch cards that YOU can draw your own awesome hero or villain on! That alone is pretty cool, but here is the real kicker… We’re going to have a Sketch Card Contest!!!
All the Sketch Cards turned in featuring Blackhole Comics Characters will be entered into a contest. The winner will receive a Blackhole Comics T-Shirt, Variant cover edition of Proton #1, and their card will featured here on Blackhole-Comics.com and in our next Comic! There will also be honorable mentions printed along with the winner, and you can enter as many cards as you can get your hands on! The Winner will be announced here at the end of June.
We’ll also have a limited number of Proton #0 and Blackhole Universe #1 issues for sale. Writer/creator Nick Flair will be signing copies, and hyping up his next project too! Bottom Line, Free Comic Book Day at Richmond Comix is going to be amazing and you should be there!
As a small press publisher out of RVA, I’m proud and excited to announce this Wednesday February 10th, 2016 Velocity Comics in the heart of VCU and Richmond will be carrying both Blackhole Universe #1 and Proton #0!
Velocity has been supplying the crazy kids on the VCU campus and the unique characters of downtown Richmond with comics for what seems like an eternity! They’re always very supportive of the local scene, and that tradition carries on as Blackhole Comics find our way to their racks! Unlike any other comic shop in town both inside and out, this is a great shop with a great staff that can help you find both books you’re looking for, and turn you on to ones you didn’t even know where there! If you’re in the Richmond area and haven’t check it out, you’re missing out! ESPECIALLY now that you’ll be able to pick up Blackhole Comics there obviously!!! Swing by and pick up your copy of Blackhole Universe #1 and/or Proton #0 while supplies last!!!
Blackhole Comics got 2015 started with a super successful Kickstarter campaign that allowed Proton #0 to see the light of day. Now as 2016 kicks off, I’m proud to say Proton #1 will be our premiere story!
For those who weren’t able to get a copy of the zero issue, it introduced us to Jo-Than, the most recent of his bloodline to carry the mantle of Proton! Each generation his family gives birth to a single male heir that one day becomes the protector, not just of their home planet Vellia, but of the entire Cluster system and all 32 planets that revolve around their twin stars.
He faced a deadly armada set to invade and destroy his home world led by his greatest enemy, Negaton. Proton fought with all his strength, and in the end his planet and the entire Cluster System will never be the same again.
Proton #1 will pick up after the key events of the zero issue, and will further open and explore the world we only got a small taste of. The heroes, villains, and fantastic environments in the world of Proton will be brought to you by the incredible art of Ruben Rojas! If you haven’t seen his stuff yet, you’re missing out! He was recently first showcased in Blackhole Universe #1 taking on both Cover duties , and the Cynical story inside!
This is the start to a big year for us here at Blackhole Comics, as we have more books slated to release than ever before! Proton will be one of the cornerstone’s as we hope to have 3 issues release in addition to our other titles! Cynical will also return in the pages of Blackhole Universe #2, as well as his rival Guardian, and other new characters as well! We hope this ad by Ruben for Proton #1 gets you guys as stoked as we are for 2016, and the chance to explore more of the Blackhole Universe!!!
Thanks for the Support out there, and remember; The World is Ours to Make!!!
