David Sandoval, N.A.S Studios and GP

ImageHey everyone, this is my first post, so I figured I would tell you guys a little about myself, what I do, and what plans I have for GP. Well first off I, wanted to thank Brett for letting me express myself on here and giving me the opportunity to review and give all you comic lovers a little bit of info from the inside of the industry. Okay… I started N.A.S Studios about 7 months ago and since have been through what most call the ups and downs of starting a business. I won’t go into all the details, but just like the film industry, comics are just as hard. I guess I’m “old school”  when I say I was thinking everything would be like the old days, “work hard to get where you want to be“. The modern world showed me otherwise. With today’s technology the old school way is gone. Trying to keep up with everything is hard but worth it if you endure. The whole “going digital” aspect of things is always asked by fans and personally, I think if you want to make it you have to roll with the punches. I suffered a few black eyes but just like everyone, I learned something new everyday. As for N.A.S Studios, were kicking some Major Butt. My good friend, mentor and Editor-in-Chief for N.A.S Studios, Andrew Mangum (DC, Image) is one of the reasons we are where we are at this point. All it takes is that one person to see your potential.  So I guess what I’m trying to say and tell you all is, “ Keep trying and never give up“. I’ll be giving you guys up dates on our progress with N.A.S Studios, reviews, news, and what we love most of all… COMICS!!! Image
