Franco Cespedes joins Transmissions From Atlantis Comics!

Transmissions From Atlantis Comics is proud to announce the addition of Franco Cespedes to our artist lineup. Franco joins Ray Dillon as illustrator on our flagship title, Star Mage.

An illustrator from Costa Rica, Franco is an accomplished artist with numerous credits in the indie comics world including Black Jack Press’ Rustlers, Badlands and his own creator owned projects, Asusto and El Hallazgo.

In 2006, Franco formed his own animation company, Quinema Animation Studio, dedicated to digital advertising and animation developing original content for entertainment. He worked there as art director and senior animator. In 2010 he developed the animation series Chotico Costa Rica, which was broadcast on Costa Rican National Television and received rave reviews.

“‘I’m so happy for the opportunity for be part of STARMAGE story,” Cespedes said after finding out the news he was chosen from a group of over 60 artists. Cespedes will be taking on the role of lead illustrator for Star Mage, formally manned by Ray Dillon.

“Franco was the clear choice,” Star Mage Creator and co-owner of TFA Comics JC De La Torre said, “He was the only artist to truly capture the essence of Star Mage the same way Ray Dillon did. We feel that Franco will be not only an excellent successor to Ray but truly help us take Star Mage to a whole new level.”

Dillon’s continuing role with the project is undetermined at this time but De La Torre is hopefully he will find a place with the project.

“I can’t tell you how thankful I am for Ray Dillon,” De La Torre said, “Not only is Ray an amazing artist but I consider him and his lovely wife Renae friends. Ray bent over backwards to accommodate my lack of knowledge of the industry and helped me learn so much. I am eternally grateful to what Ray and I were able to accomplish with Star Mage #1 and I can’t wait for the world to see the foundation that Ray built that will allow talented artists like Franco to continue on. I’m hopeful that in some way, Ray will remain involved in Star Mage and our other projects here at TFA Comics.”

Franco has a beautiful command of colors as well as a brilliant technique that makes him the perfect choice to work for Transmissions From Atlantis.
