Featured Greek Illustrator! Yannis “Rubus” Rubulias

Comic-Con International recap

Comic-Con International 2017 A bunch of stuff happened, it was all a blur. The end. You do the extra ordinary enough times and it feels ordinary…sort of.  The whole CCI experience includes months of getting ready, months of ten hour or longer days, months of not enough sleep, usually a...
