ABOUT STUDIO ERBO

Studio Erbo is a publishing conglomerate, creating anything from books and comic books, to illustration and video productions.

In 2015 Studio Erbo crowdfunded a series of books called “Defective Comics.”  Indiecomix.net declared, “Defective Comics reminds us that there is more than one way to tell a superhero story and sometimes heroes are just plain weird.”

2016 brought us the novel, “Blister: A Punk Rock Memoir.”  The story has been described as “At times it’s an accurate portrayal of living as a teen in the 90’s, at other times it’s an outrageous comedy that’s filled with awesome one liners (if this was a movie everyone would be quoting it ad nauseam).”

Also in 2016 the anthology series, Rejected Hammer Thesis, joined the fray with issue #3.   Featuring stories from a variety of artists and writers, Rejected Hammer Thesis acts as a graphic mixtape.  The anthology reaches into any genre, and is perfect for a reader who is seeking a blast of of originality and exceptional creativity.
