Silvertongue Hernandez DA
Space-Time District Attorney





Hi guys! Chris Mullins (manga artist) and myself, have been working for the past two years on a Manga of our own. It's called "Silvertongue Hernandez, DA". It's about time-travelling lawyers in space! very much inspired in heist-like films, like Inception.

These are both Hernandez (lawyer) and Indio (side-kick lawyer). We'll be presenting more characters as we go along.

The main character, Hernandez, (a.k.a. Silvertongue) is kind of an ass-hole, he's hot-headded, witted, a womanizer, and pretty much a wise ass. Kindof like the Dr. House of lawyers. Always right. Always an asshole. The manga is about a rat-pack like group of lawyers who travel in time to re-do Trials of the Century to re-shape history and create a parallel universe where humans have evolved much better, much faster, in order to win a War in a very distant future against aliens who plan on hi-jacking planet Earth for it’s resources.

Chris is a great indie manga artist, and I'm more in the animation/film vfx/videogame industries. Chris designed the characters and is working on the full of the visuals of the manga, I wrote the story and have just begun a blog on my Tumblr http://little-nando.tumblr.com talking about the processes of making my first manga. Very cool!! Here are some images of Chris Mullin's work below and his blog Smile

I have directed a few films in the past, one called E.L.A. in Love at First Byte on YOUTUBE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8Y4959T3Oc which got into Slamdance Smile plus am working on a videogame called Tough Coded http://www.facebook.com/toughcoded. Silvertongue Hernandez is one of the various self-funded, self-distributed projects I'm working on these days...

We'll be posting more art, sketches, thumbnails and inspirationals alongside posters in this thread here, but you can keep track of our work on our official facebook pages and twitters, tumblrs, etc. here:

Hey guys, just thought I would do a quick update and show a few random pages of the comic! here they are!
The story of the comic universe is about a bunch of lawyers who get hand-picked to travel in time and re-do so-called trials of the century (like the Nuremberg Trials) ir order to make society evolve the quicker, so that in a parallel universe we're much more evolved, in time for a big war against aliens who come for our resources, like, 1000 years from now. Yeah, it's quite complex and heavy, but the first episode is a full graphic novel, about 80 pages long, about only one trial. The idea is to make a series out of it and see where the characters can get to Smile




You can learn more about the story and inspirationals of the comic up on my blog, at http://www.littlenando.com[/url]

Well, this is an interesting and ballsy concept! Your designs are good, with quite a bit of personality. I really like the second one, and the first reminds me of a clean cut Spike from Cowboy Bebop.

Your layouts are pretty good here too, I'd say this has potential. One word of caution, though, be wary about creating a comic for web in the standard portrait A4 format. Now, I subscribe to a lot of Scott McCloud's views on the screen and frames as a window into another world, but I think it'd make sense to tailor your work for the technology or medium you intend to present it through.

If you intend to do print, that's great... but if you're going for a primarily web based release, I'd rethink the format to landscape for those at home on their monitors or laptops.

Hey DNova! You´re very right. I originally created the comic for print, and later decided to do first a DIGITAL FIRST release... so... yeah, you're right, I made that choice rather early in the game...

Anyways, really glad you like the comic man!! You can like it on Facebook or suscribe at http://www.littlenando.com/silvertongue-hernandez-da/
