About

If you're a costumed Super-Villain, where do you go to relax after a hard day of attempting total world domination? 

Mahoney's bar, of course!

Mahoney's Cover
Mahoney's Cover

After a dark secret forces him to retire as costumed criminal The Brawler, Mike Mahoney opens a bar exclusively for Super-Villains. With such outlandish clientele as The Flamer, Bloodgeon, Snowstorm, Vileofax and The Blender, Mahoney's bar only has three rules; no fighting, no real names and most important of all, no credit!

But when the masked vigilante known as Nightcowl discovers Mike's secret, he uses it to try and blackmail him. Will Mike be able to keep his secret and his bar safe? Will The Blender survive his first shift as the new bartender? What will waitress She-Lion do when she overhears Mike and Nightcowl's meeting? And can Captain Superior really hear squirrel's fart?

Find out the answers to all these questions and more in Mahoney's, the action packed new comedy from Hardline Comics.

Flamer, Blood Knight and The Serpent are The Crime Crew!

Mahoney's is being released in two editions. The Regular Edition is 28 full colour pages and features the 22 page main story.

The 40 page Deluxe Edition will also include the 9 page Crime Crew back up story by Brian as well as a host of other extra features like sketches and character designs.

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 whether you're already a fan of Hardline Comics and just want a copy of Mahoney's or you're looking to fill a gap in your life and get copies of the whole Hardline back catalogue, we've got you covered!

Cheers,

Rich and Brian

PLUS - EXTRA, NEEDLESSLY GENEROUS BONUS: If the campaign reaches its target, every backer will receive a digital copy of my 350 page prose novel, Of Hearts and Hitmen, FOR FREE! (I know, you're welcome.)

Risks and challenges

I only ever launch a campaign when the book is 100% complete - none of this waiting 6 months or more for the book to be released. My printer is already lined up and as soon as the target is reached, away we go.

This is my seventh kickstarter so rest assured, there'll be no problems in getting the rewards out as soon as possible.
