THE STORY BEHIND ZELPHA COMICS...
Zelpha Comics is truly a childhood dream come true for founder Luanga A. Nuwame. As an avid
comic book collector since the age of seven, Luanga - nickname 'Lue' or 'Lewis' - always thought about
the day he would take the plunge into publishing his own line of books. Lue was the type of kid who sat
through his elementary and high school classes doodling superheroes on his notebooks. Heck, even in
college, he couldn't resist trying to self-publish a book in ashcan form. Though he didn't try seriously to
gain access to the industry during those past years, his passion for comic book creation always burnt
bright in his mind.
After years of growing up collecting Marvel, DC, Dell, Gold Key, Charlton, Dark Horse and Image comics
book titles, he felt the time to add his own mix of unique properties was finally due. All Lue needed was
the right artist to come along to make his ideas a reality.
After almost half a decade of struggling to find an artist who shared his passion for comics, understood
the hard work and complexities of comic publishing and had the dedication to finish a book on a
deadline, Lue thought his vision would never take shape. For a while he gave up on his publishing dream
and instead concentrated on designing card games and trading cards. But he always held out hope that
one day that right artists would come along.
That day of finding the right artist came in the most unlikely of places. Through Lue's You Tube channel
The Homemade Game Guru, an upcoming artist named George Leon happened to comment on how
much he liked Lue's videos and hinted at possibly collaborating on a project one day. After becoming
friends on Facebook, Lue was able to see George's fun cartoony artistic. Long story short, in 2012 Lue
contacted George about his idea of making the world famous hand game Rock Paper Scissors into a
comic book series. George accepted the challenge and Paper Rock Scissors Wars #1 is now ready for
the world. More importantly - Zelpha Comics is now a reality!
The concept of Petalianne was originally designed by Lue in 2002 during a 'creative spurt' period in his
early 20s. Almost 2 decades later, Petalianne has gone through numerous transformation. However, the
right artist 'fit' was always lacking and hence the concept continued to collect dust. But now in 2016, with
the help of accomplished artist Dan Hammond, Petalianne has a fresh new look and numerous
ongoing adventures that will entertain audiences through a tabloid format comic series.
Zelpha Comics is to become a publisher of comics beyond what is currently on the market. The weird,
the outlandish and the 'creatively cute' will become standard content here. Everyday objects we use in
our lives without much reflection will become living characters consumed in eccentric adventures. 'Good'
and 'wholesome' can be mixed with 'adventurous' and 'fun' to create memorable characters to captivate
younger readers. Zelpha is the birth of something new and our organization is committed to delivering
you the best originality we can.
And if you are curious, "Zelpha" is the first name of Lue's Grandmother. The company was named after
her out of respect for all the support she gave Lue when he was a child - plus, he just loves the sound of
the name. An original name for an original company.
