NEW REWARD LEVEL ADDED!!  NEW ADD ONS!!!  see below!

When a school teacher and father of five from Humboldt, Saskatchewan discovers a staff that has fallen from the stars and is loaded with cosmic power he does what anyone would do…he puts it in the cosmic lost and found box…WAIT! No he doesn’t! He learns how to use that staffs power to become the Super Power of the Prairies…Auroraman!

In 2016 Auroraman made his first appearance on the Canadian comic book scene to and overwhelming show of support! In the time since Issue #0 debuted it has been a fantastic wave of appearances. The initial print run of 650 issues completely sold out and a second print run had to happen. The second printing has a variation on the first cover as well as some new content and is seeing high demand as well! 2016 also saw Auroraman appear in 5 mini-comics (4-12 pages in length), as well as a handful of single page comic strips. Media interest has been strong right from the start with coverage from outlets like; 107.5 Bolt Fm, Hey! Kids Comics radio show, CBC radio, CBC.ca, CTV Saskatoon, Global Saskatoon as well as numerous other online blogs and new sites. All this coverage has helped this prairies centric comic book across the whole country and beyond!

 “A fun and engaging addition to the pantheon of Canadian superheroes” – Mark Shainblum, writer and co-creator of the original Northguard, Angloman and Canadiana and in 2016 was inducted into the Canadian Comic Book Hall of Fame.

This Kickstarter holds 2 amazing additions to the Auroraman lore. First up is 'The Adventures of Auroraman' Issue #1! This is a giant 64 page comic bursting with fun action and adventure!

 This issue is jam packed with terrifical comic action featuring the artistic talents of artists from across the country such as key Auroraman artist Justin Shauf, A. Shay Hahn, Chris Yao, Sharon Gauthier, Jason Sylvestre and the first collaboration between Humboldt creators Elaine Will and Jeff Burton!

"As Mayor of our fine city, I am proud Auroraman calls Humboldt, Saskatchewan home. I would encourage everyone to get on board with this fantastic project. I hope Auroraman has room on his keychain for the key to the city!" - Rob Muench, Mayor of the City of Humboldt.

"I love the Canadian superhero renaissance we're seeing right now, and indy-created, regional heroes like Auroraman deserve more attention." - J. Torres, editor/writer for True Patriot

 One of the stories in this issue is a lead in to the second phenomenal piece of this Kickstarter, the 'Axiom-man/Auroraman: Frozen Storm' novel co-plotted by Jeff Burton and written by Axiom-man creator A.P. Fuchs!

Axiom-man

One night, Gabriel Garrison was visited by a nameless messenger who bestowed upon him great power, a power intended for good. Once discovering what this power was and what it enabled him to do, Gabriel became Axiom-man, a symbol of hope in a city that had none.

Presently, Axiom-man's world is on the verge of descending into total darkness at the hands of Redsaw. His personal life is also a mess and he's barely managing to keep life as he knows it from collapsing, both for himself and for the planet. The last thing he needs is to suddenly be sucked into a parallel universe to tackle a new foe. But, perhaps, with Auroraman's help, the two can work together to find the Cobalt Crusader a way home before chaos reigns supreme in both their universes.

“Excited to see two of my favourite indie superheroes by two of my favourite indie creators teaming up! Can’t wait to find out what dangers these prairie protectors face off against!” – Andrew Lorenz; creator/writer of Canadian Corps, LEGACY, and New Guard (September 17 Productions).

So there you go, 2 great Auroraman adventures in one awesome Kickstarter! There are a lot of spectacular rewards for you to choose from in appreciation of your support of this project, with the ability to add on other rewards in case you want rewards not included in your chosen level or want extras!
