BRONX HEROES/ CUP 'O' JAVA STUDIO, TURNS 12 YEARS OLD.
The year was 2000 when artist/writer, Ray Felix decided to get into the comic book business. He resurrected two comic strips from his SVA days. " A World Without Superheroes" and "God: The Second Coming", which were published in in the late 1990's under Nimm Rodd Press, Ray Felix's first imprint. In 2002, under the new imprint Cup 'O' Java Studio, Ray Felix re-published these two titles without the other contributors from his college days. These were the first two titles that featured Superheroes who lived in the Bronx. It was the seed that was planted which brought about a variety of comic artist and writers who featured in "No-1 Anthology" and shortly after the "Bronx Heroes" and hit comic serial, "Runaway Slave". Join Bronx Heroes 12th Anniversary as we feature, "Bronx Heroes 1.0". A collection of early titles that paved the way for Bronx Heroes Publishing.
