This Kickstarter's mission is two-fold: to raise awareness of the Canadian Corps comic book and to raise funds to off-set some of the costs for printing and production of the book.

Canadian Corps is the story of the Canada-based superhero team set in Andrew Lorenz's (September17 Productions) S17 Universe as they band together in an attempt to beat back an invasion and save the world from a army of alien conquerors. 

Coming from a variety of backgrounds, they must learn to work as a team and step up to truly become the heroes they are capable of being.

Canadian Corps is:

WARRANT- Ottawa-based RCMP sergeant with the power to control gravity.

SHIELDMAIDEN- Hard-working hockey mom who can turn into a powerful warrior woman, able to take on armies.

IMPACT- Spotlight-loving teen who moved to Canada to play soccer and along the way gained the ability to absorb and emit kinetic energy.

THUNDERHAWK- The winged warrior of Canada's First Nations people. He seeks to use his powers not only to defend his people but to inspire them as well.

KID MERCURY- Calgary-based speedster who gained her powers in the same incident as Impact. A pop culture and science geek, she loves being a superhero.

FLUX- A former science teacher of East Indian ethnicity, he now works in a garage as his degree was not recognized in Canada. Undeterred, he continues to use his knowledge and his ability to bend time and space for good. His love of science is only rivaled by his love of hockey.

AZURE- The latest guardian of her family's magic bracers, Azure seeks to balance her university schooling with her obligations as Chinatown's costumed champion in Vancouver.

The first issue of Canadian Corps is 2/3 pencilled and inked, with half of it being coloured and lettered. We'll be heading straight in to issue #2 the moment #1 is completed. It was originally written as one 40+ page script but we divided it up so that we could get the first issue out sooner- so much was the demand from everyone we told about it at conventions and online. 

We've got a variety of cool rewards for those awesome folks who decide to back this project from the Kickstarter Exclusive cover for Canadian Corps #1...

In short, there's lots of cool stuff and reasons to back this project. We hope you will be a part of this fun ride that we've embarked on, and we'd appreciate any of the support you might be willing to give, whether it's pledging or just spreading the word.

We'll be doing a couple Google Hangout chats for anyone that might have further questions, I'll be announcing the dates here, on the Canadian Corps Facebook page and my Twitter account. We'd love to hear from you and talk about Canadian Corps or whatever else cool stuff you'd like to chat about! I'm always happy to talk comics, whether S17 or not, so don't be shy, feel free to message me anytime.

Thanks for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter!

Risks and challenges

Certain doom for planet Earth.

Just kidding.

The art team and I are committed to finishing Canadian Corps #1 and #2 whether the Kickstarter hits its goal or not. It might take a little longer and cost us a bit more out of our own pockets, but either way we will be doing it.

Since starting September17 Productions I have consistently put out quality books on a regular basis, working with artists from all over the globe. Making comic books is not something that is new to me. I'm aware of printing and shipping issues that can come up, having dealt with them many times in the past.

The only thing we can't control is if alien invaders were to attack. Which is why we need Canadian Corps to get funded so that they can kick some interstellar conqueror butt.
