The Sanduguan Universe
Ner began creating the Sanduguan universe with Handicrap comics expanding it into other media. After Handicrap Comics, his Zodiac comic was released independently in Comic Quest stores in 2002. The work was then published online. Sanduguan's iconic character representations gained a large fanbase among artists and comic book buffs, and many popular artists volunteered to represent the characters in various art forms. Sanduguan quickly became a gallery favorite.
There was an attempted release of Sanduguan in Blue Shuffle's digest in 2002, but production fell through. Sanduguan was released as an RPG campaign in the 2003 comic convention. It was released in a new format independently sold exclusively for the Comic Convention in 2004, and is scheduled for release as a seven-issue mini-series Sanduguan: Revelations. Bato was published anew with the release of Komiks ATBP published by Point Zero, an offshoot of Blitzworks in 2006.
