FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What kind of content does Xenoverse Comics / Animation display?
As a multi-genre brand, Xenoverse produces comic books, animation, and visual art that ranges in all types of fiction. Some projects fall under science fiction, while another might fall under social satire.
In what format are the comic books or cartoons available?
Xenoverse Comic Books will be available in both digital and printed format. Animated Series and/or Motion Graphic work is currently available to view on Youtube at www.youtube.com/xenoversecomics.
How did "Xenoverse" become the name of this visual media brand?
The term "xenoverse" is often used to describe an alien or unknown region of space / time that modern science cannot research or understand as of yet. The concept tends to suggest that there is more to reality than what even the brightest of minds can perceive. Most of my work, whether it's sci-fi or comedy, explores this idea of there being "more to the story" than even what I as the artist can ever actually portray. I also love to explore several genres, I have no loyalty to any, so the concept resonated with me.
Does Xenoverse Comics or Animation have anything to do with DragonBall Z?
Lol - No it doesn't. Although I am a childhood fan of Dragon Ball Z, this is a severe coincidence. My brother, whose played both DBXV games asked me the same question!
So do all the Xenoverse stories exist in the same Universe or Timeline?
Excellent Question! No, each comic book title or animated series exists in its world, its own time, and as its own concept. Xenoverse itself is an Anthology of various Genres and Stories. Although comic book publishers like Marvel, DC, or Image have been successful at having their respective characters co-exist and even cross-over, I feel that this can dilute each character's storyline and it becomes challenging to keep track of whose plot affects who else's plot. I think the separation of character worlds and time-lines allows for more story telling freedom and better literary structure.
Who owns Xenoverse Comics & Animation?
My name is Alain Alexander Mesa and I founded and own Xenoverse Comics & Animation. Right now I am expanding my online presence, and soon I will transform the brand into a full force art publication! For more information about me, click any of my social media links or check out the "About the Author" page.
What Audience or Age Group(s) does Xenoverse target?
As of now, Xenoverse Comics & Animation focuses on more adult themes and will even touch on sensitive and controversial topics. Violence, Sex, Nudity, Politics, Religion, War, Biology, Psychology, Sociology, etc. are all concepts that will present themselves in some form of storytelling. In the future, I do aim to launch age-friendly material.
Does Xenoverse Comics push any Political or Religious Views on readers?
Although I consider myself to be Socially Liberal or "Politically Progressive", it is NOT my job to tell people what to believe or think. No one knows everything. In fact, in my story writing, my characters portray such contrasting points of view, and no one character will ever represent all of my views - nor should they. In Life, all types of people exist, and everyone has a perspective. All points of view need to be expressed, and everyone's story should be told. I'd rather let my fans and readers come to their own conclusions.
How can I order a Comic Book or view Animated Work?
Xenoverse Comic Books will be available for digital format on Comixology and for print through our upcoming online store. Current animated work can be seen on YouTube at www.youtube.com/xenoversecomics.
SOLERA is a Science-Fiction Graphic Novel Series taking place in a future timeline where the human species occupies several planetary systems by the edge of the galaxy. An uneasy peace between the Human Federations has been threatened by the discovery of alien artifacts which seem to mimic the activity of stars. While some see these "artificial stars" as Relics of the Gods, or experimental structures left behind by some ancient alien race, the most powerful human forces see these celestial objects as exploitable sources of energy causing an inevitable path toward cosmic warfare.
Who is Solera? Is she a type of super-hero, anti-hero, or villain?
Solera is the protagonist of the SOLERA graphic novel series. Her true motives are unknown, but her actions and discoveries throughout the series will unfold her mysteries. For more specific information on this character, check out the Solera Character Page.

Being a character of mystic nature, SOLERA will feature elements of magic and spells as well.
Does the SOLERA series feature Nudity, Violence, Vulgarity, or Adult Content?
Yes. SOLERA is a fictional series portraying human nature in the most honest and graphic way possible. Nudity and Sexuality will be displayed in a non-pornographic, but honest fashion. Violence and Gore are a reality of warfare in any genre. Since people curse and swear in "real-life", so will they too in fiction.

QUESTIONS FOR THE CREATOR
Who writes, illustrates, and/or animates the artwork for Xenoverse?
I do (Alain Alexander Mesa). I outline and write all the story-lines, draw, export, animated, and prepare all of the work myself. The only thing I can't do is compose the music. So in cases where I need music for animated pieces, I either hire a musician or I use royalty-free music available online for public / creative commons use.
What tools do you use to illustrate and animate your work?
I draw everything in Adobe Illustrator first. Then I'll take it to Photoshop to either finish the final render or divide components for animation into layers. I use Adobe InDesign for the final export on a comic book, and Adobe After Effects for animation projects.
When did you conceive of the Xenoverse brand?
Back in 2003, when I was still in High School, I created SOLERA. I had her over-all design and character thought up of, but I was struggling to create a proper story-line for this character. It took me almost 10 years to finally decide how I want to tell her story! In 2012 and 2013, I was flooded with so many other ideas for animation, and I didn't really have a plan for how to create or express any of it. In 2014, I decided to keep all my ideas and concepts under one name: Xenoverse. I thought the idea of the "unknown" worked very well to summarized all these different concepts. So my animated work and comic book promotion material was marked by the logo and brand that I designed then.
When will your work be available for purchase?
I am almost half way finished with my first graphic novel: SOLERA UNIVERSE. I am going to continue that series and begin the horror novel URZIEL. Both will be available on Comixology and Amazon within 1 year. I will update when ready.
How can I contact you?
My official e-mail address will be posted in the Contact Section. To know more about me, feel free to check out the "About the Author" page.
Will Xenoverse Comics employ other artists or titles from other artists?
That is the eventual plan. I've had the pleasure and privilege of working with other artists in other capacities, but in the future I'd like to feature other cartoonists, animators, and creators and expand the Xenoverse with more creative stories.
