The Story:

 

 

High school is not a fun place. You couldn't pay most people enough money to go back. Our story follows high school sophomore and varsity football star Allie Skyiter.  As if high school isn't hard enough Allie's father is never home, he is a member of the military and has to travel all over the world for months at a time. To make the situation even worse Allie gains superpowers...

Both myself (Austin) and artist (Johannes) feel as though comics don't have enough strong female leads. We both enjoy them and this spawned Allie's personality. When reading the first issue it will remind you of the early Lee and Ditko Spiderman comics. Balancing personal life, high school, puberty, and superpowers. 

The Prizes:

 

 

 

 

Prizes include print/digital copies of Steelwool #1, as well as other print/digital comics the team has done, original commissions/art, shirts, as well as many other cool swag.
