About this project
Meet the Secret Society!
THE SECRET SOCIETY is a superhero-secret agent team of ‘metaphysical crimefighters’ developed by creator and writer Bradley Mason Hamlin with artist Mort Todd. The Society is made up of EDDIE CROSSBONES, a living skeleton, LUCY HELL, a devilgirl, PIG-MAN, a porcine powerhouse, HOURGLASS, a time-traveler who can’t control her powers, EL SECRETO, a man known as “the secret,” AGENT ADAMS, a fellow who gets his super powers from drinking spirits and many more!
The characters already have a cult following on the web through the Mystery Island websites and pulp novelettes of their adventures. This publication marks their first full comic book appearance and is now available with 8 variant covers showcasing individual members of the Secret Society.
To see a TOP SECRET dossier on all the members of the Society, along with wild art, go to the MYSTERY ISLAND HQ.
Many consider the Secret Society worthy of films, TV and merchandise. The denizens of Mystery Island agree and this Kickstarter will help spread the word on this great super-group!

Risks and challenges
