bigfoot knows karate Creative Team
Creator | Co-Writer | Artist
Dan broke into indie comics in 2007 as a writer/artist with his first self-published title, Latex Avenger, a super hero satire. After 5 years of Latex Avenger, Dan teamed up with Bonn Adame to create Masters of the Obvious, a pop culture, sci-fi adventure web comic for Hound Comics. When Dr. Biclops, The Visible Woman and the rest of the Masters of the Obvious caught the eye of The Stan Lee Foundation, Dan and Bonn created Excelsi-ish! The Uphill Adventures of a Boy Named Stanley as part of the The Stan Lee Foundation's work to promote children's literacy.
Dan has been fortunate to work on titles such as Halloween Man for Drew Edwards' Sugar Skull Productions, Mark Darden's Guano Guy, and several small projects with The Comic Jam, a collaborative short comics program, where he met BIGFOOT KNOWS KARATE co-writer, Casey Allen.
The idea of BIGFOOT KNOWS KARATE has roots in Latex Avenger and Masters of the Obvious. Originally slotted to be a comedy, BFKK was going to exist in that shared universe. But BFKK felt special and Dan decided to put the karate-fighting cryptid on the shelf. In 2017-18, Dan decided to take a stab at a new, more serious visual for BFKK that would dictate a different tone for the story. He posted a few pics of BFKK on Instagram, got some likes and a piece of fan art, but mulled over the story for another 3 years before finally settling on the traits of the gentle, cryptid warrior and the world he lives in.
Dan is excited to be working with Casey Allen on BFKK and to bring you, the reader, a story that you never saw coming! A karate chopping Bigfoot stands off against a Kung Fu fighting Cthulhu; and that's not the half of it. Get ready to take a hard boiled trip through transformation and witness the world of BIGFOOT KNOWS KARATE. Coming to Kickstarter.com in the Fall of 2021.
