- About FP
Forbidden Panel, Inc. is an independent publishing company and event coordinator, specializing in graphic novels, comic books, and multimedia.
Formed in 2006 by A.J. Herrera, Forbidden Panel provides a home for revolutionary writers and gifted artists whose talents have gotten lost in the shuffle of mainstream comic companies. With properties ranging from creepy pets to zombie-killing farm girls, FP offers a wide variety of titles in numerous genres and styles, and is the developer of the Inland Empire Comic Expo and Inland Empire Zombie Beauty Pageant.
A.J. Herrera – Founder, Editor-In-Chief, Chief Executive Officer
Creator and grand architect of Forbidden Panel, A.J. is a lifelong fan of all things comic book. His desire to provide a platform for overlooked ideas and a community for ignored talent inspired him to open a comic publishing company that would cater to the strange and unusual. Schooled in computer technologies as well as the written word, he has developed FP as a sanctuary for independent comics, recruiting talented artists and writers from across the country. His experience in event coordination and film/radio production was highlighted with the creation and success of the bi-annual Inland Empire Comic Expo in 2011. As creator and head writer of Zombie Kill Squad, he has paved the way for Forbidden Panel to rise as a leader in the production and distribution of independent comics and graphic novels.
Justin White – Art Director, Chief Creative Officer
For as long as he can remember, Justin has spent his free time creating and drawing monsters, villains, and superheroes. But it wasn’t until seeing the artwork of Arthur Adams in Marvel’s X-Men Annual #9 that he realized his destiny as a comic book style artist. After receiving a degree in graphic design, he opened Necro-Sapien Press, a freelance company that has achieved great success with illustration and creative design projects for a number of businesses. In 2008, Justin joined Forbidden Panel as a partner and head of the art department, and became sole illustrator/artist of Zombie Kill Squad.
Brandi Auset – Executive Director, Chief Financial Officer
Published author and a lover of all things artsy, Brandi Auset is a proud partner in Forbidden Panel. Though her nonfiction titles have garnered the most attention, she has been writing and winning awards for her fiction and poetry since her pre-teens. Combining her fascination with mythology and steampunk culture has lead to the creation of her first comic series, Homecoming, due for release in Fall 2011. Before she became a writer by trade Brandi worked as an accountant for pay, and now uses her financial knowledge and Business Administration training to manage FP’s clerical and economic processes.
Meet the rest of our team here: The Staff of Forbidden Panel, Inc.
El Super Maximo:
In the coastal town of Monte Prieto, crime is rampant and bizarre, unexplained happenings are becoming the norm. A small group of luchadors (Mexican wrestlers) work to protect the city from supernatural happenings and the crime war from spilling out into the streets. While these champions are mysteriously accepted by the townspeople, they don’t necessarily have the community’s best interest at heart.
A.D.A.M. Security Services:
Looking to protect your family and property by any means necessary? Call A.D.A.M Security Services, where offenders are damned for eternity.
Zombie Kill Squad:
The Zombie Apocalypse has come and decimated the world. What little government remains has gathered aboard an old aircraft carrier named “The Afterlife.” Sailing from port to port, these officials have gathered the few remaining survivors and trained them as an elite force: the Zombie Kill Squad. One city, one building at a time, ZKS works to reclaim the world, and bring the living back from the edge of oblivion.
Think you’ve got what it takes to become a member of the Zombie Kill Squad? Study this ashcan to educate yourself on the top five ways to identify a zombie.
Meet Kayla, a Midwestern farm girl struggling to adapt and survive in a world overrun by the undead.
This Special Edition issue of Zombie Kill Squad is the result of Forbidden Panel’s participation in the 2010 worldwide event, 24-Hour Comics Day.
In this Special Edition release, over a dozen new and established comic book artists pay tribute to Forbidden Panel’s original comic book series, Zombie Kill Squad.
The Plagued - Written and drawn by Daniel Whitfield, Cover and letters by Camille Alaras.

Written and drawn by Daniel Whitfield with the cover and letters done by Camille Alaras.
