Currently, I am promoting my 2nd full length independent comic book called: Purely Fictional. Purely Fictional is a 24 page book completely written and Illustrated by me, Richard Santiago II. Purely Fictional was released on January 4th, 2020.

The story is about a comic book artist who is belittled and berated by his sadistic boss for years. He gets revenge by intentionally burning his place of employment to the ground. On the run from the Police, he seeks refuge at a friend’s house, only to discover they are not truly his friends because they secretly conspired to drug him with a powerful hallucinogen for their personal entertainment. He has to figure out the solution to his problems while under the influence and things get weird.

You can purchase a copy of Purely Fictional on these fine websites: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Lulu, and Walmart.
