FLARE: The Challenge of the Gods, Book 1 is already complete, and it's ready to go to press. What we're looking for is $1000 to help finance the printing.

This story will appear in Flare #47. It's written by Dennis Mallonee, and drawn by Giancarlo Caracuzzo. With a magnificent Mark Beachum cover!

Mark is also offering five pieces of original art as reward incentives at the $100 level. This is your chance to own a Beachum original, GLAM, SEXY, COOL!

The story involves Flare with the surviving gods of Olympus. Problem is, Zeus is causing trouble. And the goddesses of Olympus throw down a challenge that will involve the selection of a new queen.

Most of the goddesses of Olympus want Flare to serve as queen, but there are a few goddesses who have agendas of their own. Over the course of the next two years, this story will play out through 13 issues and four different Heroic Publishing titles, pitting goddess against goddesses in a series of challenges arranged by the gods.

Again, the story itself is already complete, and can be previewed in its entirety on the Heroic Publishing website, at http://www.heroicmultiverse.com/heroicpub/previews/preview.php?ic=fl47

What we're looking for is help is bringing this issue of FLARE to press. 

Flare artists Mark Propst, Rob Jones, and Gordon Purcell have all offered to contribute original drawings of Flare to our selection of available rewards.

You can also get a beautiful signed and numbered 11" x 17" limited edition FLARE print by Mark Sparacio. These are low numbers from a run of only 250 copies. The artwork was used on the cover of FLARE #32.
