Scattered Comics is honored to bring aboard into its growing rooster of titles, the supernatural and high octane martial arts comic book “Zacklin“. This comic is a great fit for Scattered’s supernatural fans and at the same introduce them to the amazing brush art style of Bordin Marsinkul. This high energy comic has been sumarized this way:
“1000 years ago, The 7 demons of Zacklin from the Hell realm had a horrific civil which resulted in the death of every last demon. Years later, those demons managed to find a way to become reincarnated into human bodies on Earth.”
We had a chance to sit down with “Zacklin” creator/artist Bordin Marsinkul for a brief interview.
Q: How long have been working as a professional artist?
BORDIN: I’ve been working professionally for about 6 years.
Q: In a nutshell, how would you describe ZACKLIN?
BORDIN: ZACKLIN is a Dark, Violent, Action pack story.
Q: What made you decide to publish your comic with Jason Dube and Scattered Comics?
BORDIN: Jason Dube has been my best friend from the moment I met him. I know I can count on him pushing out my work to the public more than I can ever do.
Q: What kinds of things should we expect from this series?
BORDIN: You can get ready to be hook on to this series for sure.
BORDIN: Its hard to say, since I come up with different idea for the series all the time. I can keep on going with it.
Q: Take us through your process in doing a comic?
BORDIN: I normally start with Story concept sketch to see how far I can do in 15 page per chapter. Once done I move on the the bigger size paper and work on pencil rough, ink, then
clean up in Photoshop.
Q: Do you feel its easier to work alone on comic or with a team?
BORDIN: Alone, since its my story, I rather have my own input on it as much as possible.
Q: If you had to pick a character you most identify with in the ZACKILN series, who would it be?
BORDIN: Umm possibly Bliz himself. He’s weak at first then he will become stronger as he’s able to control the demon inside him and use them. Just like me, how I don’t know what tool to use at first to draw. And now I know how to manage all the art tool, I just become better at drawing.
Q: What do you prefer drawing when you’re not drawing ZACKLIN?
BORDIN: Commission for other people LOL
Q: What type of readers do you think will enjoy this series? (ex: readers of X-men would enjoy?
BORDIN: I say, if you like Naruto, Bleach or One Piece you will love Zacklin.
Q: Any last words, comments, worries, shout outs, sage advice you’d like to leave us with?
BORDIN: If you like my work please do come by to see me and tell me at local Anime Convention or even ComicCon. I’m always in the artist Alley. Or you can Facebook me at “Bordin Marsinkul” or “Hyperbooster” fanpage. My website is www.hyperbooster.com
