Writer/Creator Omar Mora will release his action-packed science fiction comic book series The Unearthians on July 17th.

The Unearthians features a sci-fi narrative in which two best friends are abducted by aliens and imprisoned in an underground base on Earth. While in captivity, Mateo and Carter discover the dark agenda that the aliens have in store for Earth and the entire galaxy. But Mateo and Carter also have a secret which they will use to their advantage. They join other imprisoned beings (NAURAX, ECRAPTOR, FLEX) to fight the aliens. Good and evil collide when this unconventional team comes together to battle the fascist regime. In addition to being an action-packed sci-fi thriller, it is a warm, honest, happy, and very human story. The Unearthians is a 12-issue comic book series.

“I’m super happy to have an official release date. We have been working non-stop for the last two years,” Mora said. “It’s not easy to make a comic book series, but I loved the journey and I’m so happy with the outcome of our comics. Thanks to the entire team … Edwin Estrada, Mauricio Alvarez, HdE, Camille Cortes, Phil Smith, and Luis Natali. Without them, this wouldn’t have happened. I know the readers will love it as much as we do. The art is incredible and the story fascinates me … well I wrote it … 😉 ! I’m so proud of each issue. I can’t wait to share them with all of you!”

The Unearthians will be available for purchase on the digital platform comiXology, and in print in local comic book stores in Los Angeles and through our official website. For more information on where to buy the comic visit TheUnearthiansComics.com.

Los Angeles, CA, 3/26/2018 — Writer/Creator Omar Mora, owner of Moras Productions, Inc. unveiled the cover art for the first issue of a new action/sci-fi comic book series titled The Unearthians #1.

Cover A - The Unearthians - JPG (1)

The Unearthians is an action packed sci-fi narrative where two best friends are abducted and transported into an underground base somewhere on Earth. During the abduction, lead characters Mateo and Carter go on a quest to uncover the truth when they discover the aliens’ dark agenda against Earth and the entire Galaxy. With the help of three other beings named Naurax, Ecraptor and Flex, these heroes decide to fight against the aliens’ sinister plans. Further on, Mateo and Carter also hold a secret of their own which they will use to their advantage, a secret that the aliens will never see coming. The Unerthians is an original sci-fi story where good and evil collide in a fight that’s linked to a greater cause, and where an unconventional team comes together to fight against fascism and against a greater power.

“I’m so happy with the cover art that Mauricio illustrated and the life that Edwin gave it through his use of color. The artwork that they are creating for the rest of the comic book is just as beautiful and unique. It’s very exciting to see how the storyline I wrote has come to life through the amazing illustrations created by these two amazingly talented men. Now I can’t wait to share our story with all of you. “ Mora said.

‘”My main priority now is to work hard on finding a publisher for The Unerthians. In the meantime, the artists will keep working on illustrating the remaining issues that have been written. Two issues have already been completed. Now Mauricio and Edwin are working hard on the third one. It is very important for publishers to consider us, so I’m also working hard on creating a marketing campaign to build an audience for this new series” added Mora.

Omar Mora is the writer and creator of The Unearthians. He is originally from Puerto Rico and currently resides in Los Angeles. Mora began his writing career in 2012, and since then has written several scripts and Ancient Explorers: The Lost City of Peru, a self-published novel.
