One hundred years in the future, on an atomically devastated Earth, a group of genetically altered freaks must unite to liberate the planet from The New World Order and its army of CentComm agents...
“FREAKS” was created by Jon-Peter Buzio in 2009, originally outlining Books I-III and penning a rough draft of the thirteen chapters comprising Book I. JP simultaneously initiated preliminary art work on character design and formulating other visual motifs. JP then teamed up with good friend and creative partner Rob Herring, and the two undertook the exciting task of editing, reworking and polishing the script for what has now evolved into Issue #1.
We hope you enjoy the adventure!
JP is a graduate of Pace University, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences obtaining a B.A. in Theatre with a concentration in Directing. He has been an avid fan of the science fiction and superhero genres his entire life and is thrilled to be sharing FREAKS, his first endeavor in the comic book medium.
In addition to visual art, JP has had an encouraging early career in Film and Television, proudly serving as the Script Continuity Supervisor on ABC’s General Hospital, as well as having directed, written and produced a number of well received independent projects. JP was honored to be a part of Outfest LA, as a member of the Programming Team in the 2012 season.
JP is ecstatic to be bringing Freaks to life, serving as Creator, Co-Producer and Co-Writer as well as creating all the art from pencils to color. JP is looking forward to continuing the journey of bringing Freaks to audiences around the world and creating professional quality, independent media through his new company, Time’s Arrow Productions.
JP would like to thank his family and friends, without whom this dream could not have become a reality.
