I've been making comics for a long time. From 2009 until now, Pilot Studios (formerly Earthbound Comics) has published over 30 comics books, 2 trade paperbacks and a bit of prose in Souverain #1. With the latest publication, The Pilot Studios Coloring Book, we've reached a new milestone and have evolved a little bit. Getting the coloring book on Amazon was an accomplishment I am proud of and is leading me in another avenue of publishing. So far, so good.
What's next? Here's the general plan for what we have on tap...
Carriers is a beast. Many books in progress, with Rise and Fall of Cher Ami, Pirate Bay and Carriers: War Correspodence #1 complete.
Son Chasers #2 will go to the colorist soon and then immediately be combined with SC #1 to form the Son Chasers: Hitler's America OGN.
Kurt Belcher's WORLD #3 is a slowly-but-surely project, to combined with #2 and #1 to form a trade paperback.
Divebomb #1 is an exciting new book in progress. Check this out...
From the mind of me (Ben Ferrari) and Kurt Belcher, this one is a nod to noir crime fiction and The Rocketeer. Stories from Jay Huwer, Kurt Belcher and more, with short stories and pinups, this will be a winner. Check out the first 8 pages below, art by Ben, story by Kurt.
We've got a book called Saturn & Orion, developed by Jay Huwer and myself, story by Jay, art by me. Here are some pages from that... cover by Luis Rivera.
And then two more books, one called Solstice...cover shown here..
...and The Nuclear Family. A great new Horror/Superhero thing we've got cooking. Exciting times at Pilot Studios.
Thanks for reading.

Hello everyone! This is exciting! After publishing 30 comics over the years, we've expanded our horizons into coloring books, both for adults and kids! Click here for the Amazon link! The book is a foray into new territory, the first of many coloring books. Filled with simple and complex artwork, this is probably the best looking comic book oriented coloring book on the market!
Terrific artwork from superstars like Kurt Belcher, Martin Montiel, Seth Frail, Jeff Johnson, Luis River and so many more. Check out some of the pages below!
I've done over 30 comics books. Ken Lateer, the Pilot Studios Design guy, mentioned that his wife Erum thought we should do a Coloring Book, as she enjoyed doing them, they seemed to be all the rage. Here we are, a month or two later and I'm waiting for my first proof from Amazon for The Pilot Studios Coloring Book Vol. 1! Pictured here! This is a Seth Frail piece of art of the Carriers, a Pilot Studios flagship title. Ken put it all together in this amazing cover. The whole book will be available soon, cant wait for you guys to see it.
