Eve is a loner with extraordinary powers. When a war between powerful forces threatens the world, Eve must find the strength to change.

About this project

Eve Barber is an average kid, until puberty hits and everything starts to change. Her parents die in a freak accident, a war breaks out between mad scientists and religious zealots, her body transforms in what she feels are hideous ways, and her extraordinary powers manifest. 

Eve can create avatars. They are five individuals that can go out and experience the world for her: her parents, her best friend, the boy she loves and the girl she resents. Eve can't control the Avatars-- they have a mind of their own. But they've found a way to work together... to become a family.

Life finds a new normal as Eve moves to the background and her avatars navigate the world. Until one day Eve is caught in a terrorist attack by the Technologists, a rogue faction of mad scientists.

Eve watches as a young girl is abducted and does nothing, knowing with her avatars she could have helped.

Guilt eats away at Eve until she realizes she has to do something. She has to be brave and face the world in order to help the kidnapped girl.

Writer: Al Letson is trying to inherit the title of the "World's Most Interesting Man" when the current holder retires. Letson is a storyteller/poet/playwright/actor/public radio host/comic book writer and somewhere along the line he plans to finish his novel. As a spoken word artist, he ranked 3rd at the National Poetry Slam (till this day he thinks he should have won). As a playwright, his work has been on stages across the country including a run of his solo show Summer in Sanctuary off broadway at the Abingdon Theatre Company. As a storyteller he’s been a frequent contributor to The Moth. His NPR/PRX program State of the Re:Union is aired on more than 320 stations across the country. Imperfect is just one of his many comic book projects. Stay thirsty, my friends.

Artist: Pier Brito has worked as an inker for Marvel Comics (Daredevil, Silver Surfer, Sabretooth & Mystique), DC Comics (Lobo) and various other publishers in Europe and South America. Away from comics while working on advertising and feature films, in 2011 Spanish publisher Glenát released Contrarreloj (a time travel-themed comedy graphic novel), which led to another book for the Spanish market, Logout, scheduled for a September 2014 European release. His latest project is DENVER, a sci-fi graphic novel with script by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray. He lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Graphic Design: Ron Hubbard is a designer, creative director & big picture thinker. A Graduate of the University of North Florida with over 14 years experience in the industry. With both a B.F.A. in Graphic Design & a B.A. in Advertising he approaches things from both a creative and strategic method of problem solving. He is a lifetime comic book nerd with tons of long boxes spread through multiple locations. He loves being able to combine his graphic design skills and passion for comics to help make IMPERFECT a reality.

Imperfect: The Five Faces of Eve is a limited series that will establish the Imperfect universe. Issue 1 is finished and this Kickstarter campaign will fund issues 2-4. The miniseries tells a complete story but also leaves the door open for more adventures with several characters.

We’ll be releasing each book as they are completed, the first issue will ship soon after the completion of the campaign with each subsequent issues releasing monthly. Each comic book will be 22 to 26 pages.  The collected comic books/graphic novel will be released soon after issue 4 is completed (estimated November release).

 Imperfect! Issues 1-4!

Each book will be 22 to 26 pages. Printed on quality paper!

 Imperfect T-Shirts!

 Bold Bean Coffee!

12 oz. of Sweet Spot! An espresso blend from Jacksonville Fl's, own Bold Bean Coffee! 

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk of this project is distribution after the product is done. We are confident we can host the book on several digital platforms, but ultimately we would like it to be in comic book stores.
