Athena and Artemis rumble in the jungle as the battle for the title of "Supreme" ruler has just begun...
TITANS is an ongoing mythological/fantasy-action based comic book series by Underground Comix. Each issue will span 24 pages and will be in full color. The series is a re-imagining and “re-mixing” of stories from Greek, Norse and Egyptian mythologies to tell the overall story of the impending retirement of God and the ensuing battle over who will become the next “Supreme” ruler.
The heated battle for the title of "Supreme Ruler" has just begun...
Issue one finds the virgin-Goddess Artemis in a fierce fight with the Goddess of Wisdom herself, Athena in the remote jungles of the island of Lesbos as Hermes watches from high above. Meanwhile, Persephone finds herself an unlikely ally as she begins to question her husband Hades loyalty and love for her over his quest for power.
Packed with tons of action, intrigue and sharp storytelling set to the beautiful art of Sean Hill, the inaugural issue of “TITANS” is sure not to disappoint the casual or die-hard comic reader alike.
But wait…without your help this inaugural and future issues of “TITANS” will not be possible and this is why I am coming to you the folks of Kickstarter for your support!
Our primary goal is the raise 500.00 within the next 30 days. Funds raised here will go to pay for the beautiful artwork seen here created by the talented, Sean Hill as well as cover pre/post production cost which include coloring, lettering, printing and shipping. Any additional money raised will cover the printing of additional books; additional art created by Sean and the offering of new “additional” perks to Kickstarter backers. Most importantly, your donations will help me put out a comic that I have worked so hard on and absolutely in love with. Without your help and support, this goal is not achievable...which is why I am coming to you to help back this project.
As a “Thank-You” for your interest and support in “TITANS” there are cool and exciting rewards such as:
Digital PDF Copies of Issue One
Signed Copies of Issue One
Character Trading Cards
And Much...Much More …
All of these perks and more are available at every donation level…these are limited edition items only offered here at Kickstarter. Remember, these rewards will only reach your hand if we make our goal as this is “All-or-Nothing” funding; we only receive funding for “TITANS” if we reach and or exceed our goal of 500.00.
So don’t delay…we have only 30 days to make our goal, so make help get “TITANS” off the ground by donating and spreading the word about the project!
So, feel free to email me questions and comments, look through the many cool rewards, read the FAQ’s about the project, check back for updates and pledge a few dollars to aid the production of a comic book of epic scale.
THANK YOU...For YOUR Support!

UPDATE...WE REACHED OUR GOAL...SECONDARY GOAL INTRODUCED!!!
In 2 Hours…WE MADE GOAL!I can’t believe that we reached the 500.00 goal mark in 2hours!!!
I am so excited by this and have set a secondary goal of 1,000 bucks! Also with the new goal comes a new perk and from here on out until the end of the drive for every 500.00 raised a new perk or perks will be added to the rewards section.
So please continue to show love and support for the project with donations and sharing with others and continue to follow the project as it develops!!!
Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires or no money changes hands. This also means that the perk you had your eye on will not be coming the mail to you and we will not be able to create our comic to share with you and others. So donate to the project and then share with others...or else :-)
The funds raise here on the Kickstarter page will go towards the production and talent cost of the project. I wish it weren’t so but comic books even on an indie level cost money to print, it can get costly and also artist, inkers, colorist and so on like to eat and keep roofs over their heads. So in order to pay for the talent already involved, hire talent in areas where needed, print and promote is why this project page was put into place.
I'm outside the US and have no credit card and I can't use my bank account due to Amazon policies...can I still pledge?
YES! If you have a debit card, any debit card with a major credit card company logo on it should also work! If you don't have either, you can purchase prepaid credit card gift cards.
Please note you need to make sure the gift card has at least $1 more on it than the amount of the pledge. Amazon sometimes does a $1 pre-authorization that does not clear in time for the transaction not to fail when they go to collect the full amount.
Example: You have a $25 gift card and you pledge $25 to a project. Right before collecting the funds, Amazon does a $1 ping. Temporarily, you only have $24 on the card. Then, they try to collect the $25 dollar pledge, but it gets declined because the card only has $24 on it and the $1 does not get released quickly enough.
