About

$7,584

208

A few of our subscribers were dissatisfied with the description of our earlier campaign and have asked for more details about our work. Let us begin.

  For this campaign we are offering two titles instead of one. Two anthologies that contain new and old stories.

  The new title is The Hero Comics, inspirational, provocative stories of law and order, crime and justice. This one is starring The Hero and features several other characters including Mr. A. and the new, soon to be unforgettable, V? This feature alone is tantalizing, unique, one-of-a-kind, memorable and worth the price of the magazine.

  The old title is one from many years ago, Murder. The time is right for another issue. This one also, like The Hero Comics, features old and new, revised and reprint material, stories of mystery, madness, horror.

  The books are complete but for the editorial pages. Once upon a time it was possible to see your name in print in a comic book. One could compose a letter to the editor, introduce a joke or cute story, make a fashion design for one of the comics characters, etc. Those who support our Kickstarter campaign will see their name inscribed in the pages of our comics.

Risks and challenges

The risk for us is that we are offering something unusual, different and apart from the crowd. Because it is completely different from the Mr. A. anniversary, some of you may be gunshy. The challenge for us is to find an appreciable number of supporters that will allow us to bring these books to publication.
