CJ Standal Productions was created to self publish CJ Standal's first comic Rebirth of the Gangster, illustrated by the great Juan Romera.
While CJ Standal Productions was first created to publish this one comic, CJ Standal Productions plans on producing future projects by CJ Standal and other indie creators.
In the works:a sci-fi/horror hybrid titled The Others Behind the Wall, a comic that blends Lovecraftian horror with Stranger Things science fiction and social commentary; A Story for Kari will follow after, CJ Standal's love letter to fantasy and his long-term girlfriend.
Rebirth of the Gangster, the acclaimed crime series continues as the creative team--writer CJ Standal and artist Juan Romera--keeps firing on all cylinders. This neo-noir modern masterpiece is a perfect match for fans of Breaking Bad, 100 Bullets, The Wire and The Godfather.
Rebirth of the Gangster dives into the moral challenges of a young inner-city prosecutor torn between crime, the law, and family tradition, all while swimming in issues of class and race.
A bundle pack of the first four issues--practically a steal at 50% OFF--is available on Amazon here.
Check out the comic all the reviewers are raving over, including Brian Barr at Comic Booked, who said
From the talented writer C.J. Standal and the great artist Juan Romera comes another issue of Rebirth of the Gangster!
I’ve reviewed the first two issues of Rebirth of the Gangster in the past and loved them. As a whole, Rebirth of the Gangster is a fantastic noir series with a cool, nostalgic art style and an engaging crime story. The third issue of the comic is equally as good as the first two, and so far, each issue highlights a certain character as the main focus, giving us a broad, expansive story in a realistic setting...C.J. Standal is a brilliant writer who can merge various worlds together naturally, and he’s set a good pacing for how they will all collide.
You loved the first issue and can't get enough! One reviewer was right on the money, saying
" Most of the illustrations have more than one message to convey and it doesn’t take a genius to comprehend what’s going on. It is an enjoyable read with a good ending that is sure to amplify the anticipation levels of any fan of crime fiction. I can’t wait to see what Standal has in store for the next issue."

And after a successful Kickstarter for the second issue, Juan and I completed the second issue, released at the beginning of July 2016. Don't miss out on the introduction of Hunter, who will be deeply tied to Marcus through the rest of this series! The third issue, released during the first week of September 2016, introduced Detective Lorena Sanchez's backstory, and her connections to Hunter, as she starts to investigate Hunter's past crimes. The fourth issue, released in November 2016 follows Andrea's backstory: shedding some light on old and new secrets, and the price she's paid to keep them in the dark. The fifth issue, released March 2017 shows Linda's struggle with cancer and addiction, and continues to build suspense over Hunter's plan of revenge.
