PRESENTING
New Artist – Benito Gallego

For The New Adventures of Tarzan comic strip

The comic strip, The New Adventures of Tarzan, written by Roy Thomas, now features an exciting new artist, Benito Gallego. The former artist for this comic strip, Tom Grinberg – who was instrumental in helping us launch our web comic program – has moved on to other projects. 

BENITO GALLEGO
Benito Gallego (born in Madrid, Spain) decided he loved comics at a tender age, even before he learned to read. He’s been drawing all his life – filling any blank space on every piece of paper that fell into his hands with his doodles. Benito collaborated by providing comics and pin-ups for fanzines and publications in Spain while attending the Faculty of Fine Arts in Madrid. And, he continued drawing comics while developing a parallel career in advertising and graphic design –which paid the bills for many years.

After contacting Roy Thomas, Benito got his first professional assignments working with Roy on both his series', Anthem and Captain Thunder & Blue Bolt – published by Heroic Publishing. Since then, Benito has been working with other top talents in the comic medium such as Cary Bates and Sal Buscema at DC Comics, Brian Azzarello, and Paul Kupperberg. Benito has produced a variety of illustration work including Marvel character trading cards and Monsters! and Dinosaurs for Upper Deck and he also created illustrations for books like the Diego’s Dragon series, written by Kevin Gerard.

Benito recently finished artwork for a graphic novel on the life of reggae star, Bob Marley, written by Jim McCarthy, while also working on Apama the Undiscovered Animal – a comic series based on concepts and characters from the movie: Hero Tomorrow, created by Milo Miller and Ted Sikora.

Benito lives in Alicante, on the east coast of Spain, with his wife, Soraya, and daughter, Alona, who are his most ferocious and grateful art critics. You may follow Benito’s art at www.Facebook.com/BenitoGallego.Art/

Thank you thank you thank you...

Our campaign roared past its $7000 goal yesterday. Thank you all so very much for joining the Apama Nation, and helping this wild and ferocious journey go ever deeper into the realms of the undiscovered.

We've got stretch goals coming soon that will add pages of content to the book, so please continue to share the campaign, and tag friends on social media that you think may be interested. 

Here's my hot off the drawing board finished inks for the cover of Apama 10!

The New Collection! You won't believe your... ears?







Apama The Undiscovered Animal Volume 2 is more than 160 pages, and is packed with six—YEAH SIX!—complete issues of the Mane-Man’s never-before-seen adventures! We decided to debut this set like a Netflix series — all at once, and Kickstarter backers get it first!


The award winning comic book, which originally was a spinoff of the indie film Hero Tomorrow, is currently in development as a feature film of its own (which will make it a spinoff of a spinoff,) and now, in the volume 2 collection, an actual horror show musical is thrown into the mix!


Wait, WHAT?!


You won’t believe your ears when you meet Apama’s newest nemesis, the Tap Dance Killer!


This campaign which is literally belting at gunpoint, also includes a Volume 1 option for those who choose to show up fashionably late to the party.








'What Hero Tomorrow Comics is doing is a grand transmedia experiment unlike anything seen from comic book publishers before—incorporating elements of arthouse film, musical theater, and an offbeat superhero series into an enthralling artistic landscape that can be sampled and enjoyed as individual projects or seen as an inter-connected tapestry. In short, f@#%ing brilliant.'   


—Chris Hixson, President, Incite Creative






We need your help to make it all happen. Please watch our campaign video and share with as many friends, enemies, and complete strangers as possible. We'll make sure to deliver the goods with the quirky action and bizarre adventure you’ve come to expect from Apama and his ever-growing rogues gallery and supporting cast.


Thank you so much for joining the ApamaNation and supporting Volume 1. We feel like we've reached new creative heights, and can't wait to get these next twisted chapters into your hands.


See you in the funny papers!


Sincerely,


Ted, Milo, Benito, Ilyia, and l'il Liza.
