 UPDATE 5/8/2014: POSTER ART TEASE


Stronghold
is a new, independent comic from creators Kevin Roberts and Brian Visaggio. It's a science fiction action-adventure story rooted in the "super-sentai" genre, which you might familiar with from shows such as Power Rangers, Masked Rider, Voltron and Gatchaman/G-Force. Taking strong influence from manga and anime like Dragon Ball,  western comics like Kingdom Come and Sandman, and shows like Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek Deep Space 9.

These elements come together to craft something familiar for science fiction fans In concept but fresh and truly unique in its execution.

Now we need your help to bring it to life.
It's 82 pages of full color comic goodness, sci-fi action, great characters and story development, and a plotline that will leave you craving more, anxious to know what awaits our heroes, and villains.

Issues 1-3 are done, and if you pledge high enough, you'll get the complete Volume containing all of these. Pledge higher still, and you'll get issues 4 and 5 before anyone else!

Risks and challenges

There are very few if any risks in supporting the production of Stronghold. Production of the first three issues, (volume 1) and issue 4 is already complete. From here it's a matter of publishing our work and distributing physical printed books. Our only real challenges will be making it to conventions (the price of table admission) to meet you all, and having the capitol to print these bad boys. That's why we need YOU!
