Of course, not everyone got into comic business to be an editor, so it wasn’t long before Hector began seeking out some freelance work as an artist at both Marvel & DC. Shortly afterwards, he landed his first regular gig as the Inker for Daredevil during the now famous "Fall from Grace" storyline.
The comic industry has since recovered in the 10 year period but it was still a shadow of its former glory. With the continuing rise in cover price and shrinking of the retail market, It did't seem like a good idea for any of us to try getting back into the business through traditional means. But due to the rapid emergence of Digital Reader devices and online distribution by 2007, I felt there was a chance that we could approach comic book publishing this way. I started discussions with Hector regrading this route of business and he whole heartily supported the venture.
After I took trips in both 2008 & 2009 to China, it had dawned on me that China is a rapidly growing foreign market in need of entertainment properties, and that is when I redirected the company's focus in producing comic books for the Chinese audience. The Captain China idea was conceived and Hector had a direct hand in the early character design process.
Wish you were still here my friend!
