My name is James Haick and I am the writer/creator of the ongoing comic series Solar Flare. In February, May, & September of this year, Solar Flare #1, #2, & #3 were successfully printed thanks too Kickstarter, our fans and the fine people over at Print Ninja. I can happily say that the 22 pages of Issue #4 are finished and are ready to be sent off to the printer! Just like I said in my last 2 campaigns, I plan on publishing this ongoing series myself until we get picked up by a major publisher. My goal for this Kickstarter project is to raise $1,500.00 to print 2,500 copies of issue #4 with both a limited edition cover and regular edition painted cover. I was able to finance the payments to the artist, letterer, editor and colorist myself so the money we get here will be applied to the printing of the actual comic. I plan on providing a weekly updates to all Kickstarter contributors throughout this campaign, however, I do update our website and Facebook page much more frequently .

The Creative Team The Solar Flare creative team consists of the following: Writer - James Haick, Artist – Branco Jovanovic, Colorist – Song Ye, Letterer – Andworld Designs, Editor Michael Lagace and Cover Artist Chris Shehan.

The main story of SOLAR FLARE is about a group of people brought together after the world's worst Solar Flare disaster, which leaves everyone with little to no electronics (similar to an electric magnetic pulse). The primary goal is for the group of main characters to travel safely (in a world with no functioning modern transportation) from Florida to Tennessee to deliver valuable information to the government that will help save millions of lives. Here's a free preview, we call it the "Solar Flare Preparation Guide." We give these to comic stores and hand them out at the comic conventions we attend. It's written in the voice of one of our characters, Dr. Jerry "Figs" Wilman.

 Here's the regular version of the cover!
