July 12-14 2019
The Spaniel works like a real mutt with his job as a bouncer and mascot for “the Doghouse,” a sleazy dive bar on the Sunset Strip. Perhaps he’s a drunken schizo lunatic to wear the smelly canine outfit he does, but a regular local celebrity none the less. He is celebrated by his fellow rowdy barfly patrons, and feared by the criminal element his place of employment attracts.
Raging a savage onslaught on the Lixian Empire, this opening preview displays Captain Fantastico’s own personal corruption of power. A hero with narcissistic delusions of grandeur, this hopped up caped crusader is nothing more than high flying complex and an overbearing bully to the recently reformed forces of evil.
In the first issue, Captain reaps what he sows for all his violence and perverse debauchery. The hot air balloon of his ego is pierced and in his public mortification, he zooms off to outer space and into the depths of madness….
War is wrought upon the moons of Lix, home world to his arch nemesis the Lixians. Entering their scorpion shaped mother ship, the Captain seeks retribution. However in this quest, he soon finds out just how close his enemies were and how they succeeded in hitting him where it hurts.

Capturing a retro look of such vintage fantasy comics like Heavy Metal and Creepy, Captain Fantastico is a classically rendered graphic novel. Over saturation of digital hues in modern comics cause a lack of respect for the fine art of comic book inking. We have lost respect for the black and white and the craft of illustration. This series has as it’s visual goal to bring an appreciation back to the act of traditional hand drawing that is lost on modern comic art.
This is a preview page from the upcoming graphic novel: “Captain Fantastico!” The evil Lixian armada have a bio-mecha cyber scorpion luxury war cruiser. Our hero, Captain Fantastico must infiltrate this vast fortress if he is to bring down their queen. Pencils by Ethan Wenberg, Inks by Paul Niemiec.

Insectra has recruited a new partner in crime that the Captain must reckon with…her mistress, the misterious hermaphrodite “Wolfie!”
