About

CHARGE: An All Superheroes Must Die Comic is the prequel comic book to the 2013 hit indie film, All Superheroes Must Die, starring Jason Trost, Lucas Till, and James Remar. 

What's the comic book about?

CHARGE: An All Superheroes Must Die Comic is about The Four, the team of heroes, from the film. In the comic book series, we find Charge and the rest of the Four, just learning to control their newly found powers. 

A new designer drug called 90S is destroying their city. It gets its name from the amount of seconds you have left to live once you take it. Charge, the leader of The Four, stood by powerless as a child when his Mother was murdered. Now that he has the power to make a difference, he's not going to stand by helplessly. 

Along the way, Charge discovers there is more to his friends' powers than they know. It's a power so great it dates back to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and has been on display during some of the most infamous moments in myth and history including Excalibur and the bombing of Hiroshima. 

You won't have to have seen the movie to enjoy the comic book. Everything you need to enjoy the story is presented in the book.

Risks and challenges

There are little risks involved in the project. The first issue is 100% completed and just needs to be sent to the printer, which we'll do once we reach our goal.

I successfully ran and fulfilled an earlier Kickstarter for my children's book, A Cat Named Haiku 2: The Dust Bunny and have close to 10 years of publishing experience. During that time, I have helped publish hundreds of comic books and graphic novels.
