Magnetic Press and star comic writer/artist Ulises Fariñas announced Buño, a unique new comic book publishing imprint at Magnetic Press. The imprint is independently operated and curated by Ulises Farinas and Storme Smith.
The first 3 titles to be published by Buño will be: Light (written & illustrated by Rob Cham), Cloudia & Rex (written by Ulises Fariñas and Erick Freitas, illustrated by Daniel Irizarri), and The Guardian Force Design Manual (written & illustrated by Ulises Fariñas, inked by Mike Prezzato).
The first title to be released by Buño is Light, a silent, original graphic novel written & illustrated by Rob Cham. Light is a silent graphic novel that follows a pair of adventurers from a black & white world as they embark on an epic quest to collect five magic gems of color from deep inside the earth and bring them to the surface to return color to the world. Their perilous journey through torch-lit darknesses takes them to vibrant secret caverns, endless passages, crystal-clear waters, and encounters with strange beasts, dangerous creatures, and mysterious hermits. LIGHT will hit shelves September, 2016.
Cloudia & Rex, written by Ulises Fariñas & Eric Freitas and illustrated by Daniel Irizarri. Cloudia & Rex is a lushly rendered supernatural fantasy that follows two girls and their mother who find themselves in the middle of a vast, supernatural exodus. On their journey Cloudia is bestowed the powers of hundreds of different gods, but even those don’t help her come to terms with the death of her father.
The Guardian Force Design Manual is a meta-fictional art & design book written & drawn by Ulises Fariñas, inked by Mike Prezzato. Packed with Fariñas’ signature style of endlessly detailed art; the book presents a staggering array of strange technologies, bizarre monsters, and towering super-suits. The Guardian Force Design Manual seamlessly blends fiction with real-world design history, functioning as both an artistic timeline for a vibrant fictional world, and a showcase for the lineage of design in the Sentai and Tokusatsa genres.
Buño debuts with Rob Cham’s Light, in stores September 2016.
