Batbear seems to be gaining headway on his war against crime in the city of Portburn. All his work has not gone unnoticed though as he keeps making headlines in the press and attracting the local law enforcement, who badly wants to capture and bring an end to the reign of Batbear. The police aren't Batbear's only concern however as he's also attracted the attention of Superbear. How will Batbear get out of this one? It's the battle of the ages! Who will win? Batbear or Superbear? Find out in issue two of Batbear: Batbear vs Superbear!
People seemed to genuinely enjoy the adventures of Batbear and kept asking when the second issue was coming out. Being a freelance comic artist makes it difficult to schedule time for my own personal projects, but I was determined to continue telling the tales of Batbear, for both myself and the fans. Even when things got busy, I strove to make time but then it became a question of what story do I want to tell; then it hit me, the story to tell became an obvious choice, Batbear vs Superbear! The story was complete and issue 2 is nearly upon us! The first issue was a decent 22 pages, but such a number cannot contain the epic nature of issue 2, thus, I give you 28 pages of Batbear!
The book is completely drawn. The covers are done. The only thing left is finish the colors and lettering, which will all be done by the end of this campaign.
My plan is to debut this issue at the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con in June. The funds are needed to help cover the printing costs for the books, as well as for all the awesome rewards I have to offer.
