In 1992 X-MEN The Animated Series premiered. I was hooked, but it wasn’t enough; each week I dragged a cousin or a sibling to my local comic book store.
X-MEN resonated with me. Like a mutant, I was born differently. Being gay, I understood the X-Men’s struggle for acceptance.
In 2014, I decided to follow my dream and create my own comic. With the help of my team, the world of MERAKI came to life.
I crafted this story and its characters with a great passion. And I hope that you love them as much as I do.
Welcome to the world of MERAKI!
