NYCC exclusive: BUBBA IS BACK! and he bought some friends!
Miami, Florida, 10/8/2013 — After an incredibly successful KICKSTARTER with fellow Publisher COSMIC TIMES, CREATURE ENTERTAINMENT is heading to NEW YORK COMIC-CON with some new books and a certain REDNECK WEREWOLF!
From the MAD Mind of Mitch Hyman, BUBBA THE REDNECK WEREWOLF makes it splash at NYCC with “NIGHT OF THE LIVING BUBBA” a one-shot written by Hyman and produced by Creature’s amazing talents, such as artists Roberto Torres and Amanda Raquel, cover by Patrick Reilly
“This book is a great jump on point for new fans and brings Bubba almost full circle for old time fans. But this issue has something for everyone.” said Hyman, who approached CREATURE with the idea of making a one-shot back in Spring, “The book should always have the ability to stand alone and if this goes well, we could see a Mini-Series if it goes well!” The One-shot book, covers Bubba attending a comic convention as a special guest and then… well… hilarity ensues.
Bubba bought some friends too, with new books premiering at NYCC alongside of it!
TS-101 #1 will make it’s first major convention premiere, created by John ulloa (DOUBLE IMPACT) written by Rick Prieto with Art by Emanuel Sotomayor, it tell the story of the theory of the SINGULARITY, when man and machine become sone, and how it happens to land on the lap of unemployed schlep named David. Also, Creature will feature many NYCC Exclusive such at alternate covers for newly released ZOMBIE YEARS #1 drawn by Series creator Juan Navarro, with issue #3 debuting as well, which tells the tale of the zombie apocalypse in the tropical background of Miami. Also Ulloa’s and Navarro’s stellar hit TOMMY, about a boy with an imaginary friend who happens to be a serial killer, will be there with an EXCLUSIVE NYCC LOATHING AND FEAR cover, an ode to gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson. Also exclusive is the Green version of the “WALKING BREAD” T-shirt Juan designed with FINE PRINT SHOPPE out of Miami, in an exclusive NYCC green screen print, which helps it crave “GRRRRRAINS!” That and the rest of the Creature Entertainment Library will be available at Booth # 1140.
“We’re really proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish this year, for Creature” said Juan Navarro, Editor in Chief of the company “we’ve been able to hit a lot of different convention and had a great reception, and now with Bubba guiding us, we know we’ll be able to end the year with a splash at New York Comic-Con”

Like a Beautiful Eagle made of FIRE AND PCP, rising to the sky if only to tear at your face, and help you fly, WE ARE CREATURE ENTERTAINMENT!
This is a hard thing, we’re trying to do. Oh yes, very hard. How many people out there, believing the big belief, swearing on their talent, go out and try to form an Entertainment Company? How many folks are scratching the walls making an independent film? How many grab some paper and pencils and say “Lets make a comic”
A fuck load.
By the time you finish reading this I bet another has formed somewhere in the world. Somewhere a bunch of “buddies” decided to get together in some creative endeavor. Right now.
With so much creativity happening, why does most of it suck then? Why is it when you turn on the TV, or go to a movie theater, half the stuff blows, and the other half is predictable and stupid? Why is it that the radio is a total disappointment? Why does the TV make your eyes bleed in the shear insipid nightmare of others peoples imagination
Phoning it in. Half-assing it. Bullshitting. Weak. Limp-wristed attempts. People just not giving a shit. That’s the main difference 99% of the time. It’s not budgets, it’s not exposure, or fame, or even talent or skill.
If you really work your ass off, really burn it all down, you’ll get something. What? I have no idea, but something good will come of it, if anything the ability to do the next project better. But if you don’t sweat or cry a little, if bruises and cuts don’t form, if there isn’t just a tiny drop of blood somewhere in the process, don’t expect anything back.
Here at Creature that is the one thing we have in spades. We’re willing to sweat for our work. With all our productions be it “The Gun” movie or the various shorts we have in the works or our publishing arm, with “Forgive me Father” or “Zombie Years”, we’re doing all we can and we have.
We have days jobs, we have families, we have responsibilities that far exceed these things, but in the end we are putting out and making something we love and want to share about. With that, I think that we’re going to rise above a lot of turds floating in the water.
If not, we’re having a hell of a time doing it.
So this is the opening barrage here on the Creature. I’m Juan Navarro, Editor-in-Chief of the publishing wing of Creature Entertainment. “Out of the Box” is going to be a weekly column informing you on the going-ons here it our studio, but also comment on various issues going on in comics and movies and Bird House Building…
+We’ll be filming the last bits of “The Gun” this Friday, so we’re real excited about getting everything done. Geez I wish I could show you how good it looks!
+Julio Alvarez is still at the editing table, and really busting his ass piecing together the first Episode of “The Gun”, and I got to say, it looks freaking awesome, and I’m not enjoying that. Every time we go to the editing room, we’re astounded by the look and form of the first episode. I can’t wait till we can post it.
+Rene Quesada is cooking up another possible web series, we’re just picking out what and how we approach the work itself.
+John Ulloa is currently working on the script for the second episode of “The Gun” putting together all the beats we discussed in a production meeting last week.
+Al Quesada has been putting together various ideas, and I’ve been bouncing some stuff off him, trying to see what other projects for Creature we can do. I think the problem isn’t the ideas, it’s picking one to do right now!
+Jose Varese sent us pencils for the first issue of “The Gun” and they look awesome. The covers are slick as hell. Expect them up soon.
+Between Zombie Years and our upcoming book Tommy, my art chores have been stacking high, but right now I’m on a good rhythm and hope to dwindle some serious Bristol Board this week.

One of the other comics we’re working on right now, happens to be “Tommy”, an insane morphological tale of a boy and his rabbit, who may or may not be an insane serial killing schizophrenic. Created by John Ulloa, written by John Thomas, and drawn by Me! We’ve been hashing out the script, plotting pages and I’m already inking some of the first pages ( See Below), Here’s a short little something about what Tommy is all about by John Thomas:
“When John Ulloa came to me about working on Tommy, I realized I was going to be getting into some sick stuff. Not sick in a gratuitous way (well, maybe a little, but hey, who doesn’t enjoy a little gratuitous violence now and then?), but in a black comedy sense. Very black. Think Calvin and Hobbes with a touch of Fight Club and some bad acid. It’s a journey into the heart of darkness of the most innocent people on the planet: kids. Tommy is our hero, a young boy cursed with an alcoholic mother and all-but-non-existent father (I’ve been writing Tommy for a couple months now and even I don’t know what he looks like). Somewhere along the way, he just snaps. More specifically, right around the time his mother brings him a pet rabbit named Jack. Like the Ripper, except quadrupedal.
Jack does very bad things to Tommy and the people he (tries to) loves. And he tells Tommy to do bad things…really bad things. Things that, given the right circumstances, pushed just far enough, can be found in any of us, even little boys and girls. And no, he’s not burning ants with a magnifying… Tommy is really disturbed. But is it Jack doing all the horrible things, or is it Tommy? And can Tommy’s trusty sidekick, Cuddles the Ticklish Teddy Bear, stop Jack from killing everyone in the house, Tommy’s school, and maybe even the world?!?! Well, by the end of the run (3 issues), the body count will rise and we’ll find out just what the heck is going on.
All the blood and dark shadows of Man(Art) are being done by the great Juan Navarro of Zombie Years, and if you’ve seen that, you know this one is gonna be just as good. I can already picture him drawing some of the stuff I have written for him, laughing at his desk like some sort of sadistic maniac, foam and Red Bull spewing from his mouth!!!!
The project is moving right along, with the script for Issue #1 finished and pencils/inks ready for preview. In fact, here’s a little teaser of the opening of said issue. It gives a nice little taste of the horrendous situations we’re going to put poor little Tommy in, just to see if he can wriggle his way free. And if you laugh a little, don’t feel too bad about yourself. Enjoy!”
And on to the preview and a look at the script:

After a week with no updates it’s time for some catch up. We have been really busy this past week with the Bodega shoot of The Gun. Production stills will be up soon. Julio and Rene have started editing a rough cut off the movie with the scenes we have so far. Jose has been drawing like a madman getting the print version of The Gun done. Juan and John have also been working away on Tommy. We’ll be showing more of Tommy here very soon.
Plus we have been working away on some new ideas as well.
In the meantime here are some production stills from the Coral Gables shoot and Bryan Power in his first apperance as the Pawn Broker from the Pawnshop shoot.
