Underground Comixxx is currently comprised of 3 individuals. Jabaar Brown, Eric Allen and Piaget Robinson. While all three have a history of either writing or drawing it wasn’t until they collaborated that all of the pieces fit together and their dream of releasing a comic book became a reality. Soul Riders Edition One will debut at the Philadelphia Comic Con 2011.
Jabaar Brown was born in 1972 in Wilmington, Delaware and has been drawing since the age of 6. Jabaar got his artistic start by looking at anatomy books and recreating the pictures. As a child his mother would read him comic books instead of children’s books before he could read them himself. Jabaar has a catalog of characters and a few comic books that he has been working on since high school. Although he could draw he lacked a strong writer to add depth to his characters and story lines.
Eric Shotwell Allen was born and raised in Delaware. He began writing creatively as a teenager. Through his community activism & support of local arts, he met Jabaar and began collaborating with him as a writer and story developer for the Soul Rider book. This duo came up with a few preview books and appeared at a handful of local art shows. Public response was very positive so they continued.
In 2009 Jabaar met Piaget Robinson at DCAD where they were both students. Piaget Robinson is an artist from Mt. Vernon, New York. Before enrolling in the Delaware College of Art and Design, he briefly attended NYIT. Piaget rounded out the duo with his computer skills and provided a much more polished look to Soul Riders.
