About

Welcome to Blue Mamba #1!

Our lead character, Clarissa, is a former Marine who was recruited into the assassin trade by a smooth talking politician who recognized her natural ability. When Clarissa isn't working on a killing, she's works hard to have a good life with her wife, Echo.

In this ongoing series we will follow Clarissa as she completes her assignments with detail and passion, works hard to maintain her loving marriage to Echo, and discovers clues that she's part of something much bigger than she thought.

In issue one you get a 23-page story picking up with Clarissa as she begins on a series of targets that leads her down a path toward powerful people with powerful agendas. Clarissa uses every skill she has to take out her targets, including shameless seduction and brutal precision.

About the project

We started nearly a year ago with an inspiring idea of what page one would look like, and developed that into a massive story in the following days. Issue #1 is the start of an ongoing series of comics telling that story.

We want supporters to know that this project is already in its final phases. All the interior art is complete, the standard edition cover is finished, and artists for variant covers are completing their work. This book will be ready to print in just a few weeks so that it will be in your hands as fast as possible. We want no one waiting months to read this story.

Our target is $8,000 for this campaign. What does that cover? First and foremost that gets this book printed and in your hands. Anything beyond the cost of printing and shipping the book goes to cover the expenses already laid out for creation of this comic book. Money raised beyond our expenses goes right into issue number two!

Stretch goals?

Yes! This project has stretch goals. We are constantly talking to artists to develop more unique items that we can offer our backers.

Is there more? If we blow past these stretch goals, our team has even more in store to give our backers.

About the team

Jim Healis is the writer on this project and a US Navy veteran. While he is new to comics, this is not his first time writing for publication.

Alé Garza is the artist for all the interior pages and the standard edition cover. You may know him from other Kickstarter projects such as Patriotika and Cyber Spectre.

Jesse Heagy is our colorist and a US Air Force veteran. He's worked on  DC’s Nightwing, Justice Society of America, Booster Gold, and others.

Tom Napolitano is the letter and designer of the Blue Mamba logo. He has worked on numerous DC titles.

This is the amazing Atomic Blonde homage cover by Sorah Suhng, with colors by Sanju Nivangune.

Here is the variant cover from Marat Mychaels! Those colors were done by the always-amazing Ceci de la Cruz.

Here are the pencils for the Mike DeBalfo cover. This art will be customized to give those lucky backers for the KICKSTARTER ONLY variant cover something unique and beautiful that only they will have.

This gorgeous art is from Jen Broomall and will be colored by Kate Flash!

Keep watching this space as we post progress on each variant cover.

All comics will be shipped in Gemini Comic Flash Mailers to insure the best protection for your comics!

*Suggested for mature readers.

 PG13 version will have interior pages modified to cover all nudity.

Risks and challenges

Because this project is mostly complete, our risks are minimal. Our only risks at this time are completion of variant covers and getting the book printed on time. We have a commitment to finish this book regardless of any challenges we might face.
