WRITER/CREATOR OMAR MORA UNVEILS THE UNEARTHIANS FIRST ISSUE COVER

The Action/Sci-Fi Comic Book Series The Unearthians unveils Issue #1 Cover During WonderCon in Anaheim, CA

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. The big reveal took place this past weekend during WonderCon in Anaheim, CA. The cover for The Unerthians #1 displayed the beautiful illustrated work created by Mauricio Alvarez and Edwin Estrada.

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. In 2016, Mora wrote and produced the film 30 Days with My Brother through his company Moras Productions, Inc., thus becoming the first Puerto Rican born and raised on the island to write and produce a feature film resulting in national distribution within the United States in AMC Theaters through AMC Independent™.
