Esquivelians – I’ve got TWO–count ‘em–TWO books in today’s Diamond Previews catalog.
TRANSLATION: that means that you can tell your favorite comic shop/book store/Online bookseller that you want a copy, and they’ll guarantee you a copy. Please do that. It helps guarantee a larger print run, and it lets my employers know that people are on the hunt for stuff with my name on it…that when they buy my books it isn’t an impulsive thing, it’s because they’re into my idiosyncratic style of storytelling.
Astute readers will notice that I’m also credited with writing The Legend of Oz: The Wicked West #9. That’s not super true. The amazing Tom Hutchison penned that one. But I’ll take credit for it, anyway.
FREELANCERS TP VOL 01
(W) Eric M Esquivel (A) Joshua Covey (CA) Felipe Smith
Val and Cassie are two women trying to make it in L.A…but instead of an elite university or acting studio, they are graduates of a Kung Fu Orphanage who know make their living as Freelancers – solving unsolvable problems for a price. In a city where loyalty only runs as deep as one’s bank account, Val and Cassie take the most dangerous gigs, and learn what sacrifices are necessary to make Hollywood dreams come true. Red-hot newcomers Eric Esquivel and Joshua Covey bring you the smash hit series full of raucous nights, beautiful dreamers, and heartbreak in-between trips to the newest food trucks.

IN CROWD #1 (OF 4)
BIG DOG INK
(W) Eric M Esquivel (A) C. B. Zane (CA) C. B. Zane, Owen Gieni
As Tidepool begins his epic destruction of the United States, a group of young heroes takes the scene by storm – with their cameramen in place to get their good sides on film! The In Crowd mixes the fun of superheroes with the ridiculousness of the reality TV craze. They’ve got great hair, great bodies, and great power. But great responsibility? Not so much!

Listen: I’m not gonna say that we’re the most talented, best looking crew in all of comics—but I’m also not gonna say that we’re NOT…
I have a comic book and a graphic novel in this month’s Previews catalog (which hits shelves today)! Look for my name on pages 232 & 271!
FUBAR: AMERICAN HISTORY Z is a historical fiction anthology…with zombies. Ander Sarabia (BLACKEST TERROR) illustrated my contribution. It’s “Certified Cool” by Diamond (whatever that means).
LEGEND OF OZ: WICKED WEST #7 is a fantasy/western/steampunk comic starring Jack Pumpkinhead (who inspired the character “Jack, The Pumpkin King” in Nightmare Before Christmas).
Dig on this Blackest Terror pin-up Pharoah Bolding!
“Eric Esquivel’s The Blackest Terror.
The Blackest Terror is easily one of my favorite concepts of the last five years. Take the classic public domain character The Black Terror and add some urban flair, street sense, and a need to fight bigots and racists and you get one of the more fun vigilantes I’ve seen in comics in recent memory!
My boy Samax Amen (check his work out at [http://samax.deviantart.com/ ) is the artist for the next issue of The Blackest Terror (and from what I’ve seen he’s gonna absolutely kill it!) but I have to admit that I SO wanna draw this character in action!
So this is my audition piece! Eric, if you ever have a Blackest Terror back-up story or pin-up you need drawn drop me a line and I will make time!

“Based out of Tucson, Arizona, Eric M. Esquivel is quickly rising up the ranks as one of the better young writers in comics. He has done creator owned books at Moonstone Books with his takes on The Blackest Terror and Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ. He has also moved on to be a mainstay at Big Dog Ink writing many of their books and recently has tackled Freelancers for BOOM! Studios.” – ACME – Arizona Comic Mini Expo 2013 http://acmecon.wordpress.com/guests/
Big Dog Ink gave me the reigns to a teen superhero book.
Stuff’s about to get weird. Real weird.
June. Get ready.
