Story by Jon Santana, with art by Ashley Lanni

This is the first published comic story by Jon Santana. In between odd jobs and the pursuit of his education, Jon reads, writes, takes pictures, and surfs the internet at an alarming rate. His other hobbies include motorcycles and the occasional nap, although he reports feelings of guilt upon waking. Last spotted in Gainesville, FL, he is older than he looks and exists almost entirely on sandwiches and caffeine.

Ashley Lanni says she has been making art since receiving her first set of crayons in the 80′s. Most of her days are happily spent drawing and painting awesome nerdy art for the entertainment of the people that understand her the most. Read more about her comic series Aspire on Facebook at
