About

ramongilWhen he is not out searching Manhattan for the most authentic Mexican taco, Ramon likes to write and produce comic books for his many fans (2 if you don’t count his immediate family). He got his first cartooning credit at the age of 10 and is still waiting to get paid for it.

Despite being stiffed, he has been telling stories ever since. In some case, for highly questionable reasons. His favorite genres and themes are science fiction, espionage, government conspiracies and action/adventure with a healthy dose of humor and witty banter which he plagiarises from conversations with people who are way smarter and funnier than he is.

So far, he has ridden the coat tails of talents like Trevor Von Eeden, Janice Chiang, Rudy Nebres, Len Peralta, Cee Raymond, Bill Walko, Roy Allan Martinez, Lui Antonio, Macareña Cortes and many more. Here are some titles he is taking credit for:

  • The Hard Code #2 (Scifies, 2016)
