“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/

“We also have plans to expand the Critter universe further this summer with the debut of the In Crowd mini series written by Eric Esquivel.  It will be released alongside the main Critter title as our High Tide storyline takes place featuring the return of the fan favorite villain, Tidepool.” – http://amazingarizonacomiccon.com/2012/12/amazing-arizona-interview-with-big-dog-ink/

AWW, YEAH.

I love those crazy kids.

Plus: everyone who has ever enjoyed hearing me bitch about Post-New-52 Aquaman on a panel is going to love my arc…

Who I am, and why you should care DECEMBER 2012.

Hi, e’rybody! My name is Eric M. Esquivel, and I’m an author. I write comics, prose, screen plays, critical analyses and little bits of journalism.

My work has inspired a record by UK Hip Hop artist Akira The Don:

…And a music video by “The World’s Greatest Horror Rock Band”, Calabrese:

We’re also puttin’ out issue #2 of the Calabrese Comic this year!

My most recent release is Electric Youth, from BDI.

It’s about the world’s fastest teenager doin’ his damnedest to outrun adulthood, and the responsibilities that come with it.

A couple of very talented dudes said some very nice things about it:

“Eric M. Esquivel writes pop superheroes with a punk rock sense of humor.” – Jamie S. Rich, It Girl

“Fast, breezy super-hero action–with brains, heart and soul enough to make Electric Youth more than just another fleet-footed slacker. This is the perfect comic to take me back to the glory days of my previous favorite speedster. My pal, Eric Esquivel is light years ahead of the pack!” – Brian AugustynThe Flash

Tom Hutchison is handin’ me the reigns to The Legend Of Oz: Wicked West (ongoing) #6-#8.  I get to tell the secret origin of Jack Pumpkinhead, and I couldn’t be happier. He’s basically the Boba Fett of The Wicked West.  It ships March 2013.

 

 

 

I’m writing five issues (at least) of something for Boom! Studios, but I’m not allowed to say what it is…even though if you Google my name + “Boom! Studios” a couple sites have leaked it.

Oh, comics…

I have been a rabid fan of Boom! for years.  Working for them is hands down the most surreal thing that has ever happened to me.

 

There’s a 4 issue superhero team thing comin’ out through BDI this summer with my name on it, that’ll tie into their epic High Tide crossover event!

That’s all I am legally allowed to say.

*Spoilers: I wrote Lana Del Rey and Aquaman into it.*

 

Ander Sarabia and I have a story in the upcoming American History Z anthology, the third installment in the New York Times Best Selling Fubar original graphic novel series. A preview copy debuted at The Baltimore Comic Con on September 8th 2012. The real one ships around the world mid-2013.

 

 

Alex Diotto and I have a piece in the Vic Boone anthology! That one should drop in the first quarter of 2013. It’s my love letter to Andy Warhol and Arthur Fonzarelli.

 

 

 

I’ve got a short piece in Zombies Vs. Cheerleaders #8.  It’s a spy-fi thing, with pencils by Jason Pedersen, inks by Rich Koslowski (Archie Meets Kiss!), and a title sequence by Hannah Nance Partlow.

 

 

 

I’m responsible for Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ, published by Moonstone Books. It scored a 9.8 review from Multiversity. Here’s a few sample pages, via Bleeding Cool. And here’s a Comic Book Therapy interview. Score a copy here.

 

 

I also wrote this one thing called Blackest Terror, that people seem to dig. Here’s a Newsarama interview, and a Ghetto Manga interview I gave, regarding it. Score a physical copy here, or a digital copy here. And here’s a comic strip he appears in. He’ll appear again in the pages of of Ghetto Manga Magazine.

 

I have a Facebook Page, a Twitter, a tumblr, and a Wikipedia Entry.
