Anime USA Welcomes Danny “Razorfox” ValentiniSep 1st 2012
Anthropomorphic fantasy cartoonist to appear at Anime USA 2012
First cooked up in 1999 and served up in webcomic form since 2005, The Draconia Chronicles combines epic fantasy, heavy drama, fierce action, and the occasional laugh, wrapped up in a sexy anthropomorphic package with just a twist of manga flavoring. Locked into what appears to be a stalemate, races of Dragons and Tigers fight each other in a centuries-old war with a long- forgotten cause, all while trying to keep order within their own respective camps.
Danny Valentini, known online by his nom de plume “RazorFox,” is a mostly self-taught cartoonist. Starting off as a writer in 1994, his repeated efforts to find artists to illustrate his comics were largely in vain. Thus, out of frustration, on a spring night in 1995, he picked up a pencil and decided to see what he could do himself. Today, he writes and illustrates The Draconia Chronicles, and while this takes up the bulk of his time, he occasionally dabbles in other side projects. Throughout the years, RazorFox's work has been published by such companies as White Lightning Productions, Antarctic Press, Shanda Fantasy Arts, and Angry Viking Press, and The Draconia Chronicles appears in weekly installments at draconia.katbox.net
