    “You ain’t my mother! You ain’t the boss of me! You are just a… an undead thing in a world of scary stomping giant demons and scariest angels! And you let me be born in this chaos! I didn’t ask to be born in this world!” The End of the World has an upside: there’s no school. But, how do you spend the time? Metis does what every teenage girl does:  listen her music, fight with mom, think about the sexy, Silent Angel, think about John… and fighting with mom again.

    “It’s not a sad-survivalist story. It’s not the story of a Chosen One destined to restore the equilibrium or the goodness, or to kill a Big Bad. It’s just the story of a common girl with all the common girl problems”, says El Torres. “Well, the catch is she’s in a middle-apocalyptic set, and her mom is a mummy -or that’s what Metis think- so the story is not only the everyday fight of every young person to find their place in the world. Well, it’s just that, but with monsters”, El declared.

    Ramiro Borallo, with his distinctive style, has received a lot of attention and praises from readers and reviewers in Spain. His opera prima “SON”, received the “best Andalusian book”, the Desencaja Award at 2015! The Apocalypse Girl is his first complete miniseries.

    Rogues got a “SPOTLIGHT ON” in Previews (and counting!)

    The funniest rogues in all fantasy realms are back!

    In the mythical city of Gerada, Pearl of the South and Cradle of Humankind, our rogues Bram the barbarian and the thief known as the Weasel, try to survive and deal with the adventures that, literally, hang over them… and this time, this adventure is an insufferable baby!

    An evil concubine seduces an evil patrician who commands an evil man-at-arms who hires an evil wizard who summons an evil earth elemental  and evil vampiresses to kill a child, the child that the-not-so-evil (but sometimes wicked) Bram and Weasel are reluctantly guarding!

    We have magic cards, overpopulated dungeons, fights to the death in dirty alleys, family problems, royal conspiracies, learned monsters, polyamorous relationships and religious processions with turkeys. This is probably the funniest Rogues story ever!

    This volume contains issues 1 to 5 of ROGUES!: ODD PARENTHOOD, written by  El Torres with the stunning art by Nacho Tenorio and Sergio Mora (Dark Shadows, Army of Darkness…), with an amazing cover by Nacho Castro! This fun and adventurous series have been described as a book that “put the 80s fantasy/sword and sorcery feel in today’s storytelling.”

    Read what the reviewers say !

    “After the somewhat darker tone of the previous mini-series, Torres eases back a bit with Odd Parenthood, even though there’s still plenty of mayhem and violence (…) Torres has always had fun with the barbarian tropes established by REH and used since then, but that doesn’t mean he skimps on the action and characterization (…) Tenorio is a solid artist who does a nice job with the less serious tone of this series.”
    —Greg Burgas, CBR

    “Sure, it’s a Dungeons and Dragons story but at heart is buddy comedy with some great action and adventure mixed with outrageous situations.  There’s this Game of Thrones evilness in it’s conspiracy and actions and yet you still have this total Pink Panther/Don Knotts comedy involved and that he can meld the two into a story that works this well is utterly amazing. ”

    —S. Leitman, Reading with a Flightring

    “Great writing with lots of action and heart, some hilarious dialogue, and art that fondly reminds me of the fantasy cartoons of my childhood, I’d say this book’s a winner. ”

    —Geoff Deen, Mightyville
