Art by Juan Romera
Reach the Sun was the first of these stories (and my first comic ever) to be completed. It was a great feeling, seeing artist Juan Romera’s fantastic finished art. He brought grace and subtlety to this story and did an extraordinary job conveying our main character’s journey from the happiness of childhood to the angry uncertainty of his teenage years. This story has stuck with me and made me want to revisit these characters a few months or years further down the road and see where life has taken them. I know Juan’s art is a big part of the reason why.
