"This is another instance of bringing it all back home for me personally, because I'm a native of San Antonio and went to school in Austin," said Ross Richie, founder and chief executive officer of BOOM! Studios.

"Daniel is a fixture of the central Texas music scene and an international symbol of the unique creativity the region offers. Getting a chance to work with a seminal voice like Daniel is exactly why I got into publishing in the first place."
