Hope to see you there! Until then, have a Merry Merry and a Happy Happy!



J. Torres is the writer of Family Dynamic, Legion of Super Heroes in the 31st Century, and Wonder Girl for DC Comics.

Other works include the Eisner Award nominated Alison Dare, the ALA listed Days Like This, the Harvey nominated Sidekicks and the Shuster Award winning Love as a Foreign Language and Teen Titans Go.

His upcoming projects include Lola: A Ghost Story and Dead Goombas for Oni Press as well as new Degrassi: The Next Generation webisodes for Epitome Pictures.


Here’s the first look at my next project for Oni Press, the graphic novel Lola: A Ghost Story. “Lola” is the Tagalog (Filipino) word for grandmother and this story is loosely based on some tall tales about my own maternal grandmother’s childhood, some other family “history,” as well as some folklore and mythology from the Philippines.

The artist of Lola is the multi-talented Elbert Or, whose blog can be found here. While you’re there, make sure to check out his webcomics, which can be accessed from the right hand sidebar. The effectively minimalist and iconic Love and Heartbreak is probably my favourite one, but Camy and Me is also very charming and fun.
