During the Lunar New Year holiday, the Creator of X’el Studios and Yscariot™ visited Tokyo, and Yokohama to meet with friends old and new while revisiting sites that he either stepped foot on or was previously unable to visit years ago on his first trip to Japan. Most importantly was the meeting of the official Japanese-language translator of the upcoming Yscariot mini-series, “イスカリオット:α”. Continue reading The Author does Japan

The “Delta” book (Issue#3) has been delayed for the time being. It is currently 30% complete and will be carefully reviewed by a small party. There is also a plan to add extra content to the new release to allow readers to enjoy it a little easier. Creative issues and the recent typhoon strike (hitting the area where a major contributor lives) has caused some delay in production. However, extra attention will be given to the third official preview of the story. Distribution of the Alpha (Issue#0) “Hybrid” concept book will be removed from the general marketplace in the coming days. I want to personally thank all of my readers, fans, friends, and family for their patience during this time and hope that you will all continue enjoying The Gospel…
If you have not read the previews to my story, please do so… you will not be disappointed. Or at least… I hope you won’t. =)
It’s Marcus from Seoul, South Korea!
I am writing a book with the intentions of telling a story to many people. My friends whom I told this long story to loved it so much that I was motivated to writing it into a book. With the action scenes of course, I decided to apply images to it in the form of a comic book. It is actually a hybrid book with written entries instead of incorporating books that are fully-made comics or novels.
I am hoping to gain any potential reader who is interested in comics, epics, and novels. I promise that my handwriting is not hard to read. I have a few outlets to purchase from at the moment. Amazon and Google Books via Google Play.
I have a Facebook fan page that acts as a more efficient information outlet and a kickstarter to help me with project costs. Here are some links, and I hope that you will enjoy reading my stories.
Again, I am the sole artist and writer throughout the 98% of the book. The first “alpha” book will be at a low price of $2.99 ($2.51 on Google) to allow you to see a full preview of my style, format, and story.

My first book to my Hybrid Graphic Novel is now on Google Play.
GET IT NOW!
Yscariot is a superhero story that I wrote in 1998 and finished in 2001.
Being in the military and pursuing my education at a university in Texas,
I found little time to write anymore. Being unable to find an artist, I decided
to take it upon myself to begin working on a book instead. The time is now…
I hope that it’s not too much to ask for, but I will be releasing my alpha-copy soon of my book.
The Gospel of Yscariot is a 6-chapter story with other story-arcs planned. I’ve been blueprinting this story for almost 15 years.
I’m new to drawing so the push to release will be much slower, as I must learn how to draw to create some visuals for my audience.
However, I’m hoping as I expand and grow this audience, that people like you will motivate me to push harder.

My story known as The Gospel of Yscariot takes place on an alternate Earth located in a universe parallel to the one we live in today. Nineteen years before Yscariot was introduced into the story, the world had ushered in the birth of a new area known as the “Year of Global Alliance”. Although physical war have officially ceased between world nations, a new form of takeover began. Government and Corporate forces have fully merged to help bring peace amongst people. The public is no longer armed, the world speaks a single language, and one currency have been announced as the primary source for income. Over time, civil unrest occurred but led to quick suppression as people all over the world began living in their own shadows. Soon, people all over the world came to terms with their future as violence moved to corporate and government sects. Years are marked by G.A. (Global Alliance) as previous years are marked as B.G.A. (for Before G.A.) as the main protagonist Yscariot is born in 19 G.A.
The significance of Earth in this story is that I have decided that I create a planet separate from our own. This way I can avoid having to keeping locations “true to life”. Some places use a variation of real-world names and syllables to create locations. The inspiration ranges from ancient and modern-day locations to create new places in the world: Continents for example, would be Mesoa, Shenguo, and Eygea. Nations in Mesoa would be Urdea and Nuevo Rey. Shenguo would have nations such as Yamato and Aodai. Eygea would be united as a nation. The exact location that the story takes place is in Nazares, Urdea and the story opens in Yamato. You’ll see that in Urdea, the main cast would be born or have emigrated from their countries to be in Urdea. More places will be revealed, but were insignificant to create in the making of my story.
When the story begins (as you may have seen screens of my first few pages), a ray of light strikes Earth leaving a man surrounded by a white aura of energy collected around him. He is carrying a source of power known as the “Sphere of Light”. After striking the Earth, a single excavations specialist is on duty during a holiday when she found him. It was 14 B.G.A. when Quan, the man in the “falling star” hits Earth and 33 years later, Yscariot is born. At 15-years-old, Yscariot is on tour in Yamato when the story beings.
Yscariot is a teenage high school student who eventually acquires an overwhelming superpower. One of the biggest problems Yscariot will face is that Quan came to Earth with a bounty against him and that he is an inexperienced fighter even as the “Inheritor”. As a student, he originally dealt with bullying and isolation in school with very few friends to count on. As he grew in power, he tries his hardest to maintain his humbleness as he is noticed by fellow schoolmates for his defiance against his bullies. His ability to adapt into fighting comes with being in a school that thrives on excellence in martial arts, as he is a spectator for a friend in the league.
I hope this entry helps you understand the world Yscariot lives in. The good thing about my six-chapter story, is that there are side-stories to accompany the Gospel known as “Chronicles”. These stories can happen anywhere on Earth, or in the Universe and may tie characters from other stories I have in store with Yscariot’s world.
Thanks for reading!
