    You Can Be A Mysteriad!

    Have you ever wanted to be in a comic book? Now's your chance! Poe needs help to keep a lid on crime in the city, and she's going to need a team to do it. You've heard of Team Arrow, Team Flash, and Team Supergirl. Now you can be a part of Team Poe. They're called Mysteriads!

    For $100, you get all the comics, including a blank sketch cover variant with YOUR CHARACTER drawn on it, alongside Poe! There are only four Mysteriads planned, and they will be introduced in issue #2 and will be ongoing characters. We'll have a release drawn up so we have the rights to use your image and/or name.
