Thanks for taking the time to find out more about me!
I'm a storyteller and writer originally from Oakland, Calif. I have a deep love of comic books – the medium that helped me learn English as a young, first-generation American born of Mexican immigrants. My original stories include CruZader™: Agent of the Vatican, The Lunar Ladies (Scout Comics), The Glutton (Myth Division), and Major Thomás, which is in production now.
CruZader earned the Guinness World Record for Largest Comic Book Published in 2014 and is permanently on display at Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash in Red Bank, New Jersey. CruZader also helped me earn honors as The CW TV's Comic Book Hero contest winner way back in 2009. So yes, I've been at this indie comic book thing for over a decade now - and I cherish every single thing about the collaboration and creation process!
Major Thomás is my current project, and it is planned for publication as a 116-page, full-color graphic novel in 2023. Keep it locked for more info about Major Thomás on this site and on all my social feeds: @omorales81.
Of course, I need to thank my loving wife and kids for all of their unconditional support of my projects - and I thank you for stopping by!
