ABOUT US - Mahoney's is a comedy set in a bar for Super-Villains with colourful costumed criminals like The Flamer, Bloodgeon and Snowstorm as regulars. Written by Rich Carrington (The Claws, The Guys, Of Hearts and Hitmen) and drawn by Brian Dawson (The Black Blossom, Red Talon, Starstruck), issue 1 was released last year and featured in PipedreamComics.co.uk's  Top 50 Comics of the Year list and debuted at #1 in the Comichaus app charts. 

FREE ISSUE - In fact, if you haven't already read issue 1, here's a link where you can read it for free and see for yourself. (I know, you're welcome.)

WE'RE ALL FINISHED - Mahoney's Issue 2 is already complete and ready to go to print as soon as the campaign ends so there'll be none of this pledging money now and having to wait to get your book a year from now. As soon as we're funded, the rewards will immediately start making their way out to backers!

                                            The nominees for Best Super-Hero Humiliation

 HARDLINE COMICS - As well as the release of Mahoney's, this campaign also gives you the chance to catch up with all the other comics released by Hardline either digitally or physically. 

You can get all 6 issues of irreverent Super-hero comedy The Guys which BleedingCool said "gets better with every issue."

Also, why not get a copy of The Claws, a dark and violent comic that looks at what happens when the bad guys eventually win, described as "memorable and spectacular" by AP2HYC.com.

So thanks for checking out the campaign. We hope you like what you see and you want to read more of the shenanigans down at Mahoney's bar.

Cheers,

Rich and Brian


STRETCH GOALS!

We've hit target (thanks, gang!) so now it's time to start looking towards some juicy stretch goals.

If we hit 75 backers, we'll give everyone a 20+ page PDF sketchbook of Brian's character designs and sketches!

Also, if we hit £1.5k, every backer at a physical level will receive this Mahoney's print by Dazzlin' Dan Butcher from Vanguard and The Awesome Comics Podcast!

Risks and challenges

No risks here - the book is complete and all ready to go to print. This is my eighth Kickstarter and by now I'm well versed in packaging and shipping rewards.
