MY LITTLE WORLD OF ZAR
was first created in 1990. I was looking at the pages of Swamp Thing by Alan Moore
drawn by John Tottleben
. It was a Jackboxer
character as told in the caption with all the mask and goggles. I'v been a fan on the art of Swamp Thing, which back then was the only issue I had.
I started drawing the character until I wanted to create my own comics based on fantasy and my favorite movies. "Mandirigma Ng Latian
" (Swamp Warrior) was created.
My idea of the drawing was really based on the Jackboxer until Jacara Zar evolved into all sorts of designs
In 2010, I published my third, little ashcan comics called Yew Stupid Basturd! #3
, which featured an entire issue of Jacara Zar #1
. Joined me as my editor was Nikko Sansolis
. Eventually, I became very serious, realising it is time to publish a real printed version of Jacara Zar. In November 2011
, Jacara Zar #1 was published!
A year has skipped after my wife delivered our first baby until April 2013 Jacara Zar #2
with a gatefold cover. Joining me this time was good friend Robin C. Rivero
. Big thanks to Andrew Villar
comics for making my first dream cover.
