What is Mini Comics Included?!

MINI COMICS INCLUDED is a collaboration started by comic creators Tim Seeley, Steve Seeley, and Michael Moreci. Remember the fun you had with comics, toys, and cartoons as kids? That's what we're bringing back!  Imagination! Excitement! Heart! We grew up on Kirby and He-Man, Toth and G.I. Joe and are now putting that exuberance and wonder into this unique project.

Funding for this Kickstarter will enable the production of SIX ALL-NEW comics (listed below). Each comic will be 16 pages, printed individually, sized to the format of the mini-comics that frequently accompanied toys, way back when (Starriors, Dino Riders, Micronauts, etc).

Prime-8s, ready for action!

This is a very special project that we knew couldn't be done through traditional comics publishing--we're so passionate about doing this, and that's why we're running this Kickstarter.

Look at that adorable mini comic!

"Apparently, Michael Moreci, Steve Seeley, and Tim Seeley are making comics aimed directly at me, which I appreciate. Well, I suppose, they could also be making them for people LIKE me. Not just me PERSONALLY. But until I hear differently, I'm going to assume that this is all for my benefit, and will be in line on day one to back the "Mini Comics Included!" Kickstarter. Because, based on what little I've seen so far, I NEED to see the rest!"--Chris Roberson (iZombie, Masks, Superman)

Not Just Comics!

Taking this initiative a step further, Mini Comics Included has partnered with some of the custom toy world's best designers to incorporate actual toys into the comics themselves. Ben Spencer's Galaxxor and Bigman Toys' Treegarr appear in The Omega Family; Brandon Barker's Bog-nar is a character in Dead Star Divas. Even Tim is jumping into the toy game, sculpting and custom painting the lead characters (casted by Barker) from Dead Star Divas. He and Steve are also casting and custom painting Skraven, Edgar Allan Poe's hench raven from Literary Commandos.

As convenient as a portable device!

Most of these incentive will only be available through this Kickstarter drive. This is your opportunity to be part of something totally unique--join us for the fun!

The Comics!

Superbeasts

Written by Tim Seeley; art by Clint Hilinski


The city of Frankenvania is home to monsters from all across the Mulitiverse! And the only force able to protect them from hateful monster hunters is the superhero team, SUPERBEASTS!

The Omega Family

Written by Michael Moreci & Steve Seeley; art by Paul Tucker


THE OMEGA FAMILY are the last human family on a very different Earth—one where monsters, wild animals, and all manner of strange beasts rule the land. When a meteor crash lands and strange species threaten the entire planet, the Omegas must act!

Colt Noble and The Megalords

Written by Tim Seeley; art by Clint Hilinski


The sequel to the Image Comic's cult hit one-shot! Mareea, the beautiful and tough weapons trainer thinks she's finally getting a romantic date with COLT NOBLE, hero of PLANET SOL! But what she actually has is a date with DUPER, evil alien DUPLICATE!

Prime-8s

Written by Michael Moreci & Steve Seeley; art by Brent Schoonover


The PRIME-8s are a fighting force of super-powered monkeys sworn to protect the Earth from mad scientists, hyper-evolved animals, and intergalactic threats. When they are called into action—to Las Vegas—after secret NASA documents are stolen, what they discover is a Cold War plot involving samurai, a cyborg bear, and more!

Dead Star Divas

Written by Tim Seeley; art by Sean Dove


The DIVAS are the greatest bio-ball team of all time. But their angry opponents have sabotaged their transporter! And now they've been sent to a backwater world used as a dumping grounds for genetic experiments gone wrong! Can they still work as a team when lives are on the line? There's no 'I' in Divas...oh, wait....

Cave Monkey! Find him in Dead Star Divas!
Cave Monkey! Find him in Dead Star Divas!

Literary Commandos

Written by Steve Seeley & Michael Moreci; art by Paul Tucker

When Poe and his evil organization, The Raven, steal a very important time-traveling device, The COMMANDOS head to action! Will they able to stop him in TIME? Pun intended!

Here's a closer look at some of the incentives included in the project.

First up: the toys!

Ben Spencer's Galaxxor will be custom painted ONLY for this Kickstarter. Here's a past Galaxxor edition. AGAIN! All of the toys will be a different, brand new exclusive color variation only available here!

The same goes for Treegarr! We're thinking some translucent goodness, with paints by Steve Seeley!

Finally, check out Bog-nar! Your version will be this awesome, but purple!


This is the menacing resin monstrosity Skraven! A fearsome four inches tall! Hey, it gets the job done! (NOTE! This is a prototype, but yours will be just as cool!)

And here's a look at one of the cells being offered in the very rare $300 incentive:

There are also two EXCLUSIVE, awesome prints available. The first is from the always amazing Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts, Bedlam), drawing the heck out of Prime-8s. The second mashes up two of Tim Seeley's fantastic creations: Colt Noble and Lovebunny & Mr. Hell.

Here's a link to Steve's WEBSITE, so you don't have to back blindly on his art. Here are some recent (pre-trimmed down) mini-paintings. You'll get something like these:

And here's some samples of the blinding awesomeness that is the art of Steve and Tim Seeley, circa 1989-1992. Full of creativity, spunk, and hormones, these are ONE-OF-A-KIND! BUY OUR CHILDHOOD! LOVE IT! LAUGH AT IT!  

Storm Force-Steve 1991. Bloodliners- Tim 1992. Glaxatons-Tim 1989.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There's always a risk of creative teams getting busy with other work, but since this is a paid work-for-hire project, this won't be much of an issue. Plus, we've already begun production on all six titles. Tim, Steve, and Mike are all comic professionals, and project management is a skill they've honed over time. Collectively they have NEVER MISSED A DEADLINE. Hopefully, that ensures a smooth completion!
