Black Fly Press™

"Black Fly Press™ is like the record label. Arsenal™ is the band. Each issue is an EP and each short story is a song... And every song is punk. Short, fast, rough and raw." -Loroko
Black Fly Press™ is proudly creator-owned and operated out of the San Fernando Valley. All comics are made with ink and paper, the old fashioned way. Our goal is to create original content and distribute it directly to our customers around the world.

Loroko, Writer/Artist

Loroko is the pen name of Juan Carrillo who writes and illustrates ARSENAL™ and runs Black Fly Press™. Better known for having served the public as a tattoo artist since 2010, they also created and distributed the underground comic zine “24Hour Land™”.
The DIY mentality still resonates in their production and distribution of ARSENAL™, creating the entire book with analog techniques as well as self-publishing. Loroko lives in the San Fernando Valley with their wife and a bunch of fuckin' cats.
