Hey everyone, I'm Alex Martel, a tall bearded bloke from Québec, Canada. I'm a graphic designer by profession but a comic book artist by heart. I'm currently doing a comic called "The Slashers" that both parodies and pays hommage to horror movies, classics and not so classics. Rest assured that they're NOT drawn in a chibi/manga style (I consider my style much more European than anything else. Comics like Astérix, Achilles Talon and Kid Paddle were big influences), and the characters don't behave COMPLETELY differently from their movie counterparts. Either way, check it out: you may be surprised.
