About this project

Welcome to the Blindside Kickstarter page let me tell you how I got here...with the Image Comics 20 year anniversary coming in 2012 I got inspired to return to my roots. In 1992, I was a 19 year old rookie with the most amazing opportunity to be involved in the biggest revolution comics has ever seen! I was lucky enough to be the penciler on Extreme Studios mega hit  Brigade. The creative energy during that time was the most amazing thing I ever experienced, and just the thinking about it got those creative juices flowing again. So I decided to bring back my favorite creation from that period, a character called BLINDSIDE. Due to the fact that Blindside #1 shipped right before Rob Liefeld and Extreme Studios left Image Comics, only one issue came out. However the book had strong sales for that time period ( We outsold the Savage Dragon and Alan Moore's first issue of Supreme the month it shipped.) Fan reaction was amazing, to this day at every convention  I attend people constantly ask when will I bring Blindside back...finally the answer is 2012! I wanted to wait till the time was right and I had the story I wanted to tell fleshed out...well that time is now. With the help of my friends and fans I hope to raise enough money to  produce this book the way I envision it. That means surrounding myself with some great talent. All the money you pledge will go to paying the amazingly talented  people I have gotten to agree to be involved in this project. With proper promotion I feel that I can prevent Blindside from falling through the cracks in struggling comic book market. Some things I can promise you: All 4 issues will be finished before the first issue ships. (I would love to have the book ship in January) This book will hit the ground running and won't slowdown 4 issues of high octane action and kick ass visuals! Don't get me wrong there is plenty of story we just won't go at a snails pace to tell it! ( I personally think one off the problems with comics now is 20 pages of talking heads in most of the major books. ) Bad ass variant covers from some industry superstars. Anyone who pledges will be happy to be part of this project so I hope you guys think enough of Blindisde to pledge some of your hard earned money, $5 or $500 I appreciate everyone who gets involved in this endeavor. BLINDSIDE 2012...No one saw this coming!
