About

My Background: In 1982 I created the 1st continuing independent comic title called "the Survivors". It was a bold move financed only by a yard sale. As I became more and more established in the comic art/specialty market I began to enjoy creating and publishing other forms of collectibles, especially cards. 

My most successful product I’ve published to date is my Steve Woron Female Fantasy Cards. I later published numerous other trading cards foil boxes and factory sets. These high quality sets from the 1990s still sell on eBay today. see www.steveworon.com

Growing up as a little boy in the 1960’s I always held a special place in my heart for the TV series 12 O’clock High. The critically acclaimed show has a massive occult following even still today. Many shows came before it and many after it that had their own trading card set, but not 12 O’clock High. I could never understand why. I guess war was a taboo subject in the 60's but it really was an anti-war show.

Nearly 50 years later I plan to release the first 12 O’clock High trading card set. The set will designed and modeled after the Topps trading card look of the other TV series of the time. Although published in the year 2013 the cards will have the look and feel of the golden age of trading cards of the 1960’s! I want to bring back that thrill of collecting cards I remembered from the 60s of my favorite TV shows!

Risks and challenges

All of the pre-press work is done. All legal issues are taken care of. I'm just waiting to get funding. I have been publishing small projects since the Survivors in 1982 and stopped in 2003 for lack of funds and a bloated market place. I have produced high quality work since the early 80s and know short-cuts printers take, but I don't let them get away with it. I don't foresee any big problems with this project as I'm experienced at producing this kind of product. The only problem possible may be the printer's busy schedule or the cutting of cards. (But then again, cards were not cut perfectly in the 1960s so it may ad to the retro charm of the product.)
I also have a printing production, design, photography, video, art and editor background. This project is in good hands! Thank you!
