"Oye, lets go make some comix, bro"
FWACATA is the phonetic pronunciation of the sound of a crash in Spanish, a Cuban Sound effect that efficiently says Oh no or OH YEAH! This explains Juan Navarro, a Writer/Artist from Miami, Florida, Editor of Creature Entertainment, Creator of webcomics Zombie Years and VIGIL
Here I collect my thoughts, my work, and my love in one place, sharing what I can, when I can!

Work I’ve done
sketches for the upcoming short I’m doing for Red Stylo’s KILLER QUEEN anthology, where’ I’m finally unleashing DRAGONBREATH, a fantasy comic, that’s Lord of the Rings meets Pulp Fiction, to the world.
I will be at Tate’s Comics tomorrow from 12-4pm signing the new NOT AT SDCC anthology books being giving aways, showing some pages from Dragonbreath and possibly REZ, while working away on them too. Stop by talk some shop, some of the best comic creators in South FLorida will be there!
It’s in those times when you catch your breath waiting for the next thing, that I almost wince in anger at my current station in life. I have it good, don’t get me wrong, but the most human thing in the world is wanting more. I can see slaves in the shadows of the coliseum, huddled waiting to die at the cheer of a crowd, the far roars of beast across the bloody arena floor, waiting to rip you apart. After much indignation, crying, and pleading, that one of slave may pick up a stone and just think, “Well if this is how its going to be, get on with it!”
It’s the impatience of the inevitable, the get on with it, that want to prove yourself. That can undo a person to shreds, to just bit components.
It’s not for me to be some little snivelling ass of a man, its just that sharp yearning, YEARNING to move to the next step, to get on with it, to get to that spot, when you silently stand in line but scream in your mind “I’VE BEEN PAYING MY FUCKING DUES, NOW OPEN THE GODDAMN DOORS BEFORE I BURN THIS MOTHER FUCKER DOWN” and that’s when you stop and look around hoping no one saw you planning the end of the world, while waiting in line.
I don’t mind suffering. It’s part of life. What I hate is needless suffering, that to me, is just an abomination to life, an antithesis. Sometimes, within the heartless mechanism we have made in the name of civilization, I wish I wasn’t born such a rat in such a maze. But no, I shut the fuck up, and shuffle forward, patient, because I’m doing what I have to do, what I love to do, and slowly getting there. Patience, doesn’t mean taking shit from anyone, it’s suffering for a reason, for a better reason than now.
At least that’s what stops me from punching people in the back of the head.
I will be doing a panel on Saturday I believe (I’ll announce time on twitter, probably) and be at the Creature Entertainment booth most of the day, signing books and prints, maybe doing quick commissions in between. More info HERE
At night, when the Goo Goo Mucks come out, I will be at: We’re doing a SMALL set up this time at a new venue, our first in Broward, for the Hollywood Art Walk, also selling our wares, and I will be doing some artwork there, maybe live art, but if not hanging out and talking some comic talk. More info HERE
and also only 48 hours left on REZ: A Million LIVES AN HOUR!
Spread the word and pledge now as the rewards get fatter as we go!
You may finally meet the man behind my Medieval Fantasy Punk Rock story this October when I release a short for the KILLER QUEEN anthology! Starring Mermoz it’s a little 8 page ditty kind of exploring the world as I set it up. I’m thinking of just writing the series next year, looking at potential artists for the series, but with all on my plate, it’s not the top priority. Still though, I want to bring this Iggy Pop meets Legolas like maniac to the stage already…
