The Story

Danny is the last person you'd want to get super powers. A recently heart-broken, twenty year old, jobless, college drop out, Danny is often seen as lazy and unmotivated. The truth is he's just bored.

Danny's life is jolted out of boredom when he develops the superhuman ability to fly after smoking an experimental strain of medical marijuana appropriately given the nickname "Super-Bud". 

As the "super" strain spreads throughout the town, other people develop similar powers.

Will a small town like Emerald Oaks be able to survive what comes next?  Find out in this 'X-MEN' meets 'HALF BAKED' adventure.

The Challenge

Hi,

 Thanks for stopping by.  We're here to ask you for money.

 It's not glamorous, but if it helps us tell you a story we think is great we're happy to do it.  Not just that, but we want to give you a quality story accompanied by amazing artwork that makes you feel all the more a part of it.  The challenge is earning your pledge before you really know if you like us. 

 Take a look at our rewards and previews, and we hope you will see our dedication to telling you an original and funny story that will remind you why we believe in heroes.

Why Should You Help Us?

We have already completed the first issue of Super-Bud, featured on Drive Thru Comics.

You may preview it here:

Who Are We?

We are Mike Dean & Tim Radecki: the writers/creators of Super-Bud.  Our background is in film and the web, but when we first started developing Super-Bud we knew it needed to be a comic book.  So we did our research and developed our book.  We've teamed with artist Tim Lattie, the creator/artist of Night Stars, another Kickstarter funded comic, doing pencils/inks. With the addition of colorist Giulio Batawp Rincione, we have an amazing and collaborative team.

Where will your Money go?

100% of donations will go to paying for the pencils/inks, our colorist,  printing and production, as well as shipping costs of Issue #2. 

Risks and challenges

With any creative project there are always risks and challenges involved. On issue 1, our biggest challenge was finding an efficient work schedule while only doing a few pages at a time. With a full budget we will have the means to properly plan our production schedule from start to finish.

Having already completed Issue 1 and dealing with all the pitfalls of first timers, we feel very confident in seeing issue # 2 through to completion in a timely manner. Thanks in large part to the funding we receive through Kickstarter, we will essentially be allowing people to pre-order their copy of Super-Bud while also helping to make it.
