Having lost all hope in the heroes of his world, fate steps in and gives young Gavin Shaw the power to do the things they have not.

What Is Midnight Tiger About: The story revolves around young high school senior  Gavin Shaw, a disillusioned teen living in the crime infested city of Red Circle who's lost faith in the heroes he admired growing up. After attempting to save the life of the gravely injured hero known as Lionsblood while on his way home from school, Gavin finds himself waking up in a hospital bed days later with amazing new super human abilities and smack dab in the middle of a 15 year old secret that could unravel the fabric of the superhero community. Gavin is determined not to let that secret destroy his city.

Overall Theme: If you've ever felt that deep disheartened sensation that tells you that there is something BETTER out there waiting for you, but you feel trapped in the place you are and don't know why. If you've turned to look at a loved one and they seem to have given up on their hopes and dreams and you would do anything to inspire them to keep striving for their personal greatness, but don't know how. MIDNIGHT TIGER's overall theme deals with those very feelings. At its core, it is a character driven series that is part coming of age story and part hero's journey. A fun teenage superhero action-adventure told in the Silver Age style of comics that chronicles a young hero's rediscovery of his childhood dreams and his determination to help the people of his city rediscover theirs.  MIDNIGHT TIGER will examine the idea that in order to truly save a life, sometimes you have to inspire people to live.

Why It’s Different: MIDNIGHT TIGER will be one of the few comics out there with an African-American as the title character. Our goal is to have Gavin be a positive role model for all races and not just African-Americans as the book itself is very multicultural. Yet, we need more positive African-American teen role models more than ever. Gavin's moral and life decisions will be such that ANY teen (or adult) could easily relate to. Peer pressure, parents, school, dating, the future, and finding one's self are universal to everyone.

Why Kickstarter and What's the Plan: MIDNIGHT TIGER is set up to be a full-color 22-page ongoing series with the first story arc spanning 9 issues long. It will be the first series published by Write Height Media, LLC, a company co-founded by my wife Shayla Height and myself. All money raised will go toward production costs like printing, paying for a colorist and letterer, promotion, and the cool backer rewards and their shipping costs.  Any amount over our goal will be use to help produce the second issue of the series and so on. We want the MIDNIGHT TIGER series to get off to a great start and we really need your help to make that happen!
