Hi guys! Welcome to my kickstarter. My name is Keithan Jones, the founder of KID comics and creator of, The Power Knights! The PK is a team of characters I originally created when I was eleven years old. As I grew older and pursued a successful career in graphic design, I found myself doodling the PK in my spare time. This growing feeling that I owed my eleven year old self a shot at turning the PK into a real comic, became too strong to ignore. It was time. I spent the better of the last two years, writing, drawing, and coloring issues #1 and #2 of The PK. In the process of doing that, I also founded a publishing brand called KID to release the PK under. I'm hoping you guys will be inspired to help me print, market, and distribute, The Power Knights #1 and #2 for all to enjoy. Thank you so for your support!
The story is focused on two brothers, Kandle and Davion Watson, and how their lives were completely upended by their encounter with six uniquely powered warriors, Metal Star, Bluzara, Dragon Blaze, Camouflage, Princess Raxi and Warseed. These extraterrestrial warriors were sent into a blackhole, to die for war crimes they committed against their will. Yet, they inexplicably survive, and crash land on Earth. To avoid detection from mankind, some assimilate into society, while others live reclusively in the shadows. Warseed however, scoffs at taking a backseat to the weaker human race. He desires to take command of his own destiny by transforming humans into a powerful hybrid army to take control of Earth. Davion Watson, mourning the loss of his father to an incurable disease, is seduced by Warseed's promise of a new world, where disease and suffering are eliminated through science. Inedibly, Warseed soon discovers, mankind is not so easily tamed, as he is ultimately betrayed by Davion.
What happens next is chronicled in the pages of The Power Knights: Unbounded #1 – #2 and beyond.
The Power Knights # 1 debuted in 2015. It was the first comic released under the KID comics brand. KID is a comic book publisher dedicated to bringing back the fun and adventure of sequential art. We are about the synergy between the reader and the page! Meaning, you are a part of the creative process as you flip through the pages. You add the sound of the heroes' voice or the clanging of deadly blades as warriors fight on cosmic battlefields. That is the uniqueness of comic books, it is a subconsciously collaborative medium. If you've never read one, make a KID comic your first. Enjoy!

Where does the money go? The chart below breaks it all down...
Kandle is a teenage firebrand. Full of aggressive energy, ready to take on all comers even when it's against his better judgement. On the surface he's brash, but it's just a front to hide the pain he's feeling for his tormented older brother, Davion. While others feel Davion is too dangerous to live, Kandle has taken it upon himself to save him by any means necessary.
Weapons: A Lightning Shield that discharges bolts of concentrated electricity. Enhanced strength, generated from his fusion kevlar jacket. Both the shield and jacket were designed and engineered by Dragon Blaze.
Davion Watson, older brother of Kandle Watson, has gone partially mad. Barely surviving an attack by Warseed, his life is spared by Dragon Blaze's, ingenuity. An exoskeleton is grafted into his skin, to keep his body functioning through two micro-nuclear generators implanted into his shoulders. It has given him paranormal strength. Unfortunately, it also has damaged his mind and he suffers from bouts of severe paranoia.
Weapons: The HEL canon and an assortment of fire-arms collected from fallen enemies.
Dragon Blaze is a cybernetic flesh being of unknown origin. At least unknown to him as part of his memory has been deleted. He is an AITron-Type 9, AKA an engineer. He was specifically created to design and build machinery that utilizes the natural elements of any environment or world he finds himself on. Under the control of King Sinoj, he was forced to design weapons of war.
Powers: Plasma Fire, Flight, Organic Digital Processors (computer mind).
Octa-gun is a US government alpha-agent. He has no super powers. He relies on his field training and weapons constructed from technology reverse engineered from the spaceship the Power Knights crashed on Earth in. He is self assured and fearless. His primary mission: Bring The Power Knights into United States custody.
Weapons: A multi-cannon that fires 8 different elements: Fire, Ice, Electricity, Sonics, Lasers, Stun Beam, Nano nets, and a very dangerous distortion beam.
Princess Ozana Raxi is daughter to King Sinoj. Ozana is torn between the love and hate she has for her father. This causes conflict and mistrust from the other Knights. Her unique Oraxion fighting skills derive from her royal lineage. Her super dense skin, allows her to endure high-pressure impacts and extreme temperatures.
Weapons: The Oraxi Spear. The Oraxi Spear can take the form of three; a sky creature, a land creature and a sea creature. Ozana can see through the eyes of these three creatures as they aid her in battle when necessary.
Get the infectious theme song of The Power Knights, "It's Yours"! Written, composed and performed by the rising star, Clifford "Switchmatic" Kennedy.
Just for you guys, I will be posting a FREE short story called, PRESSURE- A POWER KNIGHTS STORY. Take a glimpse into Davion Watson, AKA Rebellion's life as he comes across a young man who is contemplating suicide. It's a story that expresses some of the deeper themes found in the Power Knights. See the work in progress below. Enjoy!
