The Art of Travis Stephens
Welcome to the online portfolio for illustrator Travis Stephens.
I’m Travis and I’m a comic book artist based in Wilmington, NC. Over the last 20 years, I have worked on books from Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, and most major small press publishers. In 2019, I self-published the first issue of my superhero comic book Shinjū and had plans for more issues in 2020. But, ya know…
Christy Anders has been leading and mentoring Tenjin for almost a decade but today she finds herself facing her most harrowing challenge yet: confronting a former disciple determined to dismantle the Tenjin faith!
The Tenjin way of life began when a young girl named Ten’ja discovered she had superpowers. Not wanting others to live life in fear, Ten’ja traveled the lands looking for people like herself that were confused and no longer welcomed by their families. 1,200 years later, her philosophies and teachings continue to guide a small group of outcast superheroes that call themselves Tenjin.
After helping Earth’s mightiest fighters defeat a major worldwide threat, Christy Anders’ team of Tenjin members have taken the night off. Not only are they celebrating the victory but also the news of Christy’s nomination to take the Unifailia, the Tenjin Rite of Passage.
As the Tenjin celebrate their victory, a new threat begins to emerge from within their membership. Nikati’s faith has been shattered by the discovery that the official Tenjin teachings are incomplete. It is now His calling to dismantle the Tenjin faith, starting with their most powerful member: Christy Anders!
