Our Story

The mission of Embonpoint is to provide a publishing vehicle for new graphic novels. As writers and visual artists ourselves, we experienced the hardship in getting our work to the public through the standard channels. Our initial projects stood outside of the mainstream with characters and topics that challenged the status quo and didn't necessarily fit inside any kind of box. And since we had no intention of changing our style or our message, we created Embonpoint in 2017.


Our little imprint is an experiment in creating unique, progressive material that challenged societal ideals. We have two titles, FATIZEN The Graphic Novel and Blanc Noir, our Marabou Mule Mystery Series.

Our first project was released in  2017. Blanc Noir is a black and white detective story created by artist Mason Arrigo. A dark, twisted romp that gives a nod to the old gumshoe stories-with a little horror and science fiction thrown in for good measure.


The last two issues of Blanc Noir dive into ghosts and aliens: Blanc Noir Ferox  and Blanc Noir Quatre. Marabou teams up with her old nemesis Alabaster Sconce to solve the mystery of the death of his beloved Aunt Cherry. What causes some families to fall apart? And what defines "family"?  The final issue blasts off into space for an otherworldly adventure. Watch the book trailers.

The FATIZEN project is our dystopian trilogy. This work is based on the prose novel Fatizen 24602 by Philip Barragan and published by Branch Hill Publications in 2015. FATIZEN: The Graphic Novel is illustrated by artist Mason Arrigo. The epic conclusion to FATIZEN, Part Three: Their Mortal Rind, is on sale now.

Our latest project is a children's book for adults written by Philip's nephew, Danny Natali Barragan! Titled, Juniper and the Rose, this enchanting story is a love letter from a father to his young daughter about life lessons, both sweet and difficult, and how we must persevere and never give up!


We hope that our stories bring enjoyment and enlightenment into your world. That is, and will always be, our goal-to reach others through our art. We thank our family, friends, colleagues and supporters.


You can always order our books through Amazon, your local bookstore, or digitally. Please contact us for any questions or comments. And thank you.

~Philip & Mason
