About Comic Book Journey
The idea of Comic Journey was born in 2016 when brothers Luis and Andres Reina decided to produce and publish a comic book series, both to fulfill a childhood dream and as the centerpiece of a transmedia project based on an idea by Luis. Although they had experience producing animation and publishing printed material, many aspects of the comic book world were new to them. A couple of months combing the web and reading books, gave them pointers on the path to follow, at that point they decided their quest might be interesting to others on the same road and decided to chronicle it and to try and aggregate all the resources that they found helpful. The result is this web site and blog which they hope will be useful and entertaining to others.
