East Side Mags is honored to host a highly creative neighbor of ours, coming to us straight from Essex County - T.J. Sterling!!!
T.J. began his career in comics working in the famous Marvel bullpen. After his tenure at Marvel he started his own indie comic company RAE Comics. RAE - short for Red Arcis Entertainment.
T.J. serves as president, lead artist and creative visionary behind RAE Comics and it's premier title is Okemus.
Okemus is a sci-fi martial-art action story centered around a shapeshifting anti-hero with awesome abilities. Okemus is a unique mix of manga style story telling with a touch of all-american cool.
After it's initial debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Okemus Issue 0 sold out completely...almost unheard of for an unknown.
Post that incredible feat Okemus Issue 0 was reprinted 3 times and now lives in comic shops across the east and west coast.
T.J. looks forward to bringing copies of the stellar Okemus Issue 0 to one of his favorite comic shops East Side Mags on August 27th, 2016 from 1pm-6pm. He will also have copies of the latest issue in the series Okemus Issue 1 and he'll be sketching for customers!
