    Transmissions From Atlantis Comics

    Star Mage will be Published by IDW this April!

    OrasmasClipJC De La Torre has announced via his facebook page that his comic Star Mage will be released as a six issue mini-series by premiere independent comics giant IDW.  Star Mage is about Darien, a gifted 14 year old boy who discovers that he is not human, has magical powers and is part of an ancient war between alien magical races. While he learns of his legacy, destiny and importance to the battle, Darien establishes bonds with new, strange friends and learns his magical craft of Kishpu.

    The first series consists of all of these elements as well as setting up the mythology of the Sarru Kishpu, the world of Eridu and their enemies. We’re introduced to Darien’s three friends – Unura, Tirwa and Anthaar – each aliens with their own powers that become crucial in the end game against their hated enemy, Orasmas Xul Sarrum.  While the story starts on Earth, we will be taken to the far reaches of the galaxy, meet new races and discover strange new worlds.

    The first three issues of Star Mage were funded on Kickstarter on July 18th. The comic doubled it’s target goal.

    “Today is a major day folks. I’m happy to announce that we’ve signed our deal with IDW Comics for Star Mage. Look for it this April!” De La Torre said on his Facebook page.

    IDW Publishing currently publishes a wide range of comic books and graphic novels including titles based on AngelDoctor WhoGI JoeStar TrekTerminator: Salvation, andTransformers. Creator-driven titles include Fallen Angel by Peter David and JK Woodward, Locke & Key by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, and a variety of titles by writer Steve Niles including Wake the DeadEpilogue, and Dead, She Said.

    With amazing artwork by Ray Dillon and Franco Cespedes as well as a deep, far reaching storyline by De La Torre – Star Mage could be the next big thing in 2014.

    Franco Cespedes joins Transmissions From Atlantis Comics!

    Transmissions From Atlantis Comics is proud to announce the addition of Franco Cespedes to our artist lineup. Franco joins Ray Dillon as illustrator on our flagship title, Star Mage.

    An illustrator from Costa Rica, Franco is an accomplished artist with numerous credits in the indie comics world including Black Jack Press’ Rustlers, Badlands and his own creator owned projects, Asusto and El Hallazgo.

    In 2006, Franco formed his own animation company, Quinema Animation Studio, dedicated to digital advertising and animation developing original content for entertainment. He worked there as art director and senior animator. In 2010 he developed the animation series Chotico Costa Rica, which was broadcast on Costa Rican National Television and received rave reviews.

    “‘I’m so happy for the opportunity for be part of STARMAGE story,” Cespedes said after finding out the news he was chosen from a group of over 60 artists. Cespedes will be taking on the role of lead illustrator for Star Mage, formally manned by Ray Dillon.

    “Franco was the clear choice,” Star Mage Creator and co-owner of TFA Comics JC De La Torre said, “He was the only artist to truly capture the essence of Star Mage the same way Ray Dillon did. We feel that Franco will be not only an excellent successor to Ray but truly help us take Star Mage to a whole new level.”

    Dillon’s continuing role with the project is undetermined at this time but De La Torre is hopefully he will find a place with the project.

    “I can’t tell you how thankful I am for Ray Dillon,” De La Torre said, “Not only is Ray an amazing artist but I consider him and his lovely wife Renae friends. Ray bent over backwards to accommodate my lack of knowledge of the industry and helped me learn so much. I am eternally grateful to what Ray and I were able to accomplish with Star Mage #1 and I can’t wait for the world to see the foundation that Ray built that will allow talented artists like Franco to continue on. I’m hopeful that in some way, Ray will remain involved in Star Mage and our other projects here at TFA Comics.”

    Franco has a beautiful command of colors as well as a brilliant technique that makes him the perfect choice to work for Transmissions From Atlantis.
