A few updates for the people who still visit this page:

  •  I am currently working on a long graphic novel (in Italian), Le tende bianche, which should be published sometime next autumn (hopefully). You can follow the updates on the facebook page here. I am posting a sketch/glimpse of pages every Tuesday, and some reading/watching recommendations every Friday. Le tende bianche will be an historical graphic novel set in Italy in 1796, during Napoleon's first Italian campaign, and it will feature a lesbian love story. The comic will be 100% in watercolors.

  • You can now find me also on Instagram. My Instagram is only for art - no personal updates there.
  • As usual, you can always find me on facebook, twitter and tumblr. While I'm not much on twitter and tumblr (though I post there from time to time) I'm always on facebook, so if you wish you can add me there.
  • Due to the fact that I'm drawing a long comic in watercolors, I made two short videos about watercolor paper, one about Canson Montval and the other about Langton Prestige. Both are in Italian, sorry. It's possible that I will make more watercolor videos in the future.

Hi guys,

As some of you already know, I celebrated my birthday one week ago.

Over the course of the last year, I drew over 120 comic pages professionally (not counting the over 150+ pages of stories I sketched for my own.) Unfortunately, only a limited number of those pages have been made public. Six pages were for a submission pitch I never heard anything anymore about (the writer simply disappeared.) Another handful were for another submission pitch that actually made through the first stages of approval by a publisher, but was ultimately discarded by the said publisher (it happens.) Some were for a project in which I really believed, but that plunged into a well of problems that haven't been completely drained yet.

Of the projects I worked on, only a couple have been distributed. The first was the fantasy anthology Death Saves: Fallen Heroes of the Kitchen Table, which was a huge success on Kickstarter (it became also a Kickstarter staff pick) and which is now available on amazon. It featured the short story Roll of the Die, that I drew and colored on a script by Mike Sebastian.


 The second is the sci-fi series Native Lands, which I'm drawing for writer James Cavanagh. You can buy the first issue discounted here for the Geek Fest Sale Fest. You can follow it on facebook, twitter and tumblr. Issue #2 is in progress at the moment.

Now, a third project could become reality with your help! Let Go is a sci-fi indie graphic novel about a family struggling to adapt to a rapidly changing near future world. I've already drawn the first 16 pages of it (you can read them here.) Let Go is now on Kickstarter to help funding the rest of the book. Please support us (and me into seeing one more of my works become available to readers!)

I got featured on Comic Book Resources, for the Month of Women in Comics! Read the article here: goodcomics.comicbookresources.…


An excerpt:
Latella nails Amber’s personality so well. I think her depiction of Amber really sells the book the best. Latella makes Amber feel like a real person. Meanwhile, Latella also does a great job depicting all the crazy evolutionary enhancements that the Endling has, like the ability to cut off his own toe and control it to kill people. It’s sick but also awesome (and also based, kind of, on the properties of a real life animal).

Hi guys,

A short entry just to let you know that THE ENDLING, the digital comic I'm drawing for Thrillbent, will relaunch tomorrow after a four-months hiatus! This second half will pick up exactly where we left, with Amber and Zavi being chased in the lab building by Lee's men. 

You can find a recap of what happened so far here.

And an interview with our writer Jonathan Larsen plus a preview of Issue 21 here on Bleeding Cool.

Please join us on facebook and on twitter for more updates and discussions!

I've been lacking in updating every Thursday news of the Endling, but this is a big one, and the few people who pass from here probably know that already. The weekly publication of the Endling on Thrillbent.com had almost reached the production, so we had to make calculations and decide to take a break, so we could stack a decent number of chapters before starting publishing again.

So the production hasn't stopped: I've sent the last pages for Issue 22 right this morning, I'm preparing the bonus material for Collection #3 and working proceeds as usual.

We will be back online at the end of January.

In the meantime, please join the Endling on facebook or on Twitter to keep up with updates!

The second, necessary update is that I'm coming to New York! I'll be touring the NY Comicon in company of a very good friend, and hopefully we'll see something of the city as well. We are organizing with other Thrillbent authors, to see if we can recognize each other in first place, and then eventually do something. We'll keep you informed!

Please share and join us on facebook / twitter! It's very important for me!

The Endling promo by cabepfir

In my latest poll, many people seemed not to know what The Endling is. The quick answer is: it's the digital comic I'm drawing for Thrillbent.com thrillbent.com/

Endling Issue 2 by cabepfir

For a slightly longer answer, what's better than to quote an extremely nice review The Endling just got from the guys at Secret Identity Podcast www.secretidentitypodcast.com/…?

The Endling preview by cabepfir

Mark Waid's digital comic platform Thrillbent has already produced some pretty amazing properties like Insufferable and The Eighth Seal </em>(which I recently reviewed on Secret Identity). Lately I've been checking out The Endling by Jonathan Larsen and Cecilia Latella, and it may be the best one I've read yet.

Endling03 02 by cabepfir

The Endling
is a mind-bending story that begins with a simulation program being run by the CDC to try and cure diseases. The program simulates billions of years of human evolution. One day the program simulates the birth of what could be the last human being. The child has evolved to the point that it can communicate through the computer simulation to real human beings in our world. It makes contact with a high school science student and convinces her to help it make the transition to our world. There's just one problem--the child is basically a super-powered killing machine that will probably bring about the end of the world.</i>

Endling 04 01 02 by cabepfir

There are currently ten chapters up on Thrillbent that you can read for free. Larsen's story is expertly-paced, and reads like a good movie. Latella's artwork is consistently good, and the digital format allows for some cool and creepy storytelling techniques.

News: The Endling

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 12, 2013, 12:49 AM
Since the news is out, I could at least share it with you!

So, what have I done in the last months? I've been working on a new webcomic which should start at the end of the month on Thrillbent. Story is by Jonathan Larsen. This is what the writer wrote about it:

've long been interested in evolution, especially the ramifications of natural selection. I learned and thought and think about evolution not from a biological perspective but from a philosophical one. My faculty advisor in college was the well known philosopher (to the extent such a thing exists) Dan Dennett, who went on to write Darwin's Dangerous Idea, among other things.

After getting the opportunity to write a couple Batman stories for DC Comics, I began to think about projects of my own I wanted to do. One of them is a big, cool saga I hope to start soon, but as I shopped that around and spoke about it with various people in comics, I realized I should have another pitch in my back pocket, just in case. I began to think it might be fun to think about what the last human would be like. And how he got that way.

I hadn't known this before I began looking into the concept, but there actually is a term for the last individual specimen of a given species. The endling.

But the Endling isn't the hero of this story. The hero is a high-school senior named Amber Black. The story became less about the last humans and their world, than about current humans and our world; the prices we will and won't pay to save our world.

What the Endling ultimately is, well, I'm curious to find out what people have to say about that once the story is done.

It's scheduled to begin this month, so keep checking back. Once it's up, I'll link to it here. Or better yet, sign up for emails letting you know when each installment goes up!
