About

Looking to build upon the success of our last successful Kickstarter campaign, TITAN THE ULTRA MAN #2, I have a BRAND NEW title that I am excited about...STREETZ!!  This series has it all - action, crime, mystery and much more!

WHAT IS "STREETZ"?

STREETZ is a new action/thriller that focuses on the gritty underbelly of the urban streets.  A wave of deaths after the release of a new designer street drug targeting the urban community is the catalyst that kicks off the story. But we will quickly find out that things are not what they appear as a sinister plot is revealed that will put these heroes to the ultimate test.

This four issue mini-series brings together all of the major African-American heroes in my comics universe and shines a spotlight on the Street-level characters for the first time!  The mysterious death of an inner city hero puts in motion the gathering of the Greatest Heroes of All to solve the crime!  Titan the Ultra Man!  Nia X!  Hannibal!  Nimrod the Hunter!  The Liberators and many others will be introduced as the series progresses.   

One of the characters you can expect to see in STREETZ includes: 

The Avenging ACE

THE CREATORS

STREETZ was written and created by yours truly but the real stars of this show are my team of co-creators.  The members of the team include:

Miguel Angel Ruiz - Penciller

Cristian Docolomansky - Inker

Samuel Salguero/Kirsty Swan - Colorists

Shawn DePasquale - Lettering/Edits

This first issue cover was created by the great Mshindo Kuumba featuring Titan the Ultra Man, Nia X, Nimrod the Hunter, Scout and Hannibal.

WHY KICKSTARTER??

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to raise funds to cover the coloring & lettering of the last few pages and to get the book printed.  Also, I believe Kickstarter is a great way to introduce this new series to a large, diverse audience that I am sure will love it.  Check out a few pages of the interior art that will be in STREETZ #1:

PROJECT GOALS

The minimum that is needed is $1,800 (minus the 5% Kickstarter fee) but we are hoping to raise $4,000 or more.  At that higher amount, we can fully produce the second issue of STREETZ and operate more effectively to publish this book.

Risks and challenges

There are always some risks but we have taken into account most of them.

All of the pages are drawn (except for the three possible backer pages) with only nine pages left to color and then letter so there is little risk involved.

Our last Kickstarter was successfully funded and we shipped all packages out ahead of our estimated window. The plan being on doing the same for this one.
