UPDATE #6 05/05/16
Thanks to everyone for supporting this project. We are already working on the issue so we can get it out to you on time!
UPDATE #5 04/13/16
To stimulate some new Backer Pledges, I have reduced the price (and fixed the typos) on most of the Original Art. All the Art Incentives except the pages by Leonardo Gondim have been reduced.
To sweeten the deal, I am giving a FREE copy of Cover C and a unseen Original Pen and Ink drawing from Issue #1(Randomly determined) to anyone that Pledges for one of these Original art Incentives. You can Add On or combine any of these Incentives.
UPDATE #4 04/11/16
We have added yet another Incentive cover for 3CORPS #3. This Limited Edition Nude Cover C (See below) will be available as a single issue or as an Add On. For those that Back Print Incentives for $25 or more, you can get a copy of 3CORPS #3, Cover C (100 printed) for $20. Like all of these covers, it is Limited and will never be printed again.
I still have a few copies left of the Legend cover for $25 for those that want one. The Legend Hell's Executioner #1 cover by Bill McKay is just about sold out, so don't wait too long to get this one! Quantities are limited!
UPDATE #3 04/05/16
We are adding a new alternate cover by Bill McKay (Action Lab / Zombie Tramp) for 3CORPS #3 of Krimson. For those that remember, Bill did the alternate cover for Legend: Hell's Executioner.
UPDATE #2 - 03/31/16
I still have some promotional cards of the Old Cover B I produced for the 3CORPS #2 Kickstarter and I am going to pass them on to all of you! That's right anyone that Pledges $7 or more will receive this card signed by me!
UPDATE #1 - 03/30/16
A few things for you guys to consider...
1) I forgot to add that everyone that buys a Print Issue of 3CORPS #3 will get a FREE PDF of the comic! This is a good Incentive for those that are already buying the PDF to get a print issue for a few dollars more! This is for all print incentives of the $7 level and up!
2) I have created a $23 dollar incentive for both the Print and PDF copies of all three books.
3CORPS #03 is a 28 page full color comic printed on quality comic book paper.
Meet 3CORPS: Max, Krimson and Faceless!
3CORPS are a group of super powered humans brought together by The Colonel to fight against the growing superhuman threat on the planet. Their Headquarters, Station Zero, is located in the Amazon Jungle. The very existence of the compound is unknown to most of the world. Even the people that come to work there must never leave and the ones that do mysteriously have no memory of the facility.
In the 1950's, the first super human power evolved in a private in the army. Shortly after this event, a secret unnamed cabal was formed within the military to watch over the Super Human condition. Eventually, The Colonel was put in charge of Station Zero and the group that would eventually be called 3CORPS.
For the next 60 years, the Superhuman Condition was hidden from the general population. Since these 'appearances' were so far apart, they were easily concealed! Occasionally, these situations would resolve themselves before the military could even intervene. That is why early on it was decided to form a special task force to deal with these incidents when they arose.
The name for 3CORPS was given to this task force by The Colonel for sentimental reasons He has never disclosed those reasons and anyone that has met him knows why! He does answer a question unless he wants to, and will never give out any more information than is necessary. This is the life that he committed himself to many years before.
There have been other members of 3CORPS over the years. The current roster is Max, Krimson and Faceless. 3CORPS mixes history and the present together to create an interesting story for the reader.
ISSUE #1: The cat is out of the bag as the population of Earth begin to discover the existance of super humans. 3CORPS leader, Max fights the super powered Gabriel Luciano but soon finds he has his hands full!
See Issue #1 Preview here:
ISSUE #2: At the beginning of Issue #2, we find the rest of the team, Krimson and Faceless, dealing with the repercussions of their leader’s demise. Max is in the super sophisticated hospital in Station Zero’s Medical Laboratory after his near fatal encounter with Gabriel Luciano in issue #1.
In the meantime, The Colonel has other ideas. He convinces Faceless and Krimson to go to Russia and interview Georgy Joromir, AKA The Devastator.
See Issue #2 Preview here:
ISSUE #3: This story is entitled "Black Knight Rising".
In this issue the team is shattered! Max, having sustained so much damage, is now insane. Enemies become friends as 3CORPS finds themselves fighting their own leader!
Meanwhile, The Colonel must try to make a “Deal with the Devil”. We have been talking about Level 13 for several issues, now it time to see what is hidden there! What will The Colonel do to stop Axiom?
Also, the secret of the Daedalus Spear will be revealed! What is the connection between the spear and the 13,000 year old alien satellite, The Black Knight?

Risks and challenges
tHello Old and New fans!
While some of you already know our comic line and products, others are just getting acquainted with the Top Secret Press product line. We are building a steady line of comics with a core of supporters, all of whom I am indebted to for helping me make this possible.
This is my 16th Kickstarter (with 11 prior successes) and the final issue of the 3CORPS Mini Series!
As is with all my Kickstarter, we work together to make these comics. I have explained in the past that comics can cost up to $6000 to produce. With 3CORPS, this is no different.
I have a committed team that is motivated to finish the book. All the money from the Kickstarter goes to the artists, incentives and shipping. I supply the difference for printing. I like to print in large totals, so that does add up on its own.
There are many of you that already know this because you are returning for most of my comics. It is your help that is allowing Top Secret Press to grow into the company you (and I) want it to be.
The Full Color cover for Cover A is on the way!
And remember, I can't do this without your support!
