This Kickstarter project is designed to help us bring TWO NEW COMICS from NEIL VOKES back to modern audiences with EAGLE and DEATH's DARK ANGEL.  By participating in this program you can get special editions of these two 48 page comics and help us to make sure more of the "Vokesverse" we are developing become a reality!  These new comics have NO ADS - they are 48 pages each and full of comic book goodness.  That's 96 total pages of comic book fun from the mind of one of our favorite creators in these two jam-packed books!

30 years ago Neil Vokes, Jack Herman, and Rich Rankin created some of indie comics’ greatest original characters in the pages of EAGLE and  DEATH'S DARK ANGEL (previously published as "Death's Head")! EAGLE presents the supernatural laced adventures of a man seeking justice at the end of a sword!  Now at long last, we present this essential character to new generations of fans with EAGLE RESURGENT. This oversized 48 page introduction special is chock full of vintage and modern Vokes art with no ads! The FIRST NEW CHAPTER OF EAGLE to be published since 1989 is here alongside a beautifully re-mastered ink washed presentation of the original 1986 Eagle #1 issue. We also include a first look at a new original series by Vokes & Herman right here! This is going to be a huge year for new Neil Vokes’ comics and we invite you to take the initial steps into our burgeoning Vokesverse here with American Mythology!

Eagle Debuted in 1986
Eagle Debuted in 1986

DEATH'S DARK ANGEL presents the story of the deadly future echo of Eagle which evolved into a terrifying twisted version of the man he was. Now the silent killer has turned his sights on his past self and is set upon destroying those in the way of his singular mission. This edition has been fully remastered with an incredible ink wash finish that brings new life to the original story pages. And the Vokesverse continues to expand and gives us a first look at an all new Death’s Dark Angel story coming later this year! This is the ultimate 48 page - no ads introduction to the fertile imagination and characters of a comic book artistic legend!

Death's Dark Angel
Death's Dark Angel

The mid-eighties were an unparalleled time of creative expression and books like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Watchmen were redefining what comic books could be.  But like many of the creations of that era, they've largely been impossible to find since that time.  Three decades of having to rummage through long boxes to find the rare copy or win an auction on eBay to find one of these long out of print classic stories.  With your help we are bringing Neil's wonderful original characters back with a completely re-mastered ink wash deluxe presentation that preserves the original black and white look but adds layers of texture and tone to the already amazing pencil work.  These new editions are oversized - 48 pages each with no ads and deliver the initial story of both Eagle and Death's Dark Angel as well as providing a sneak peek at NEW EAGLE and DEATHS DARK ANGEL comics coming out later this year!

We are presenting an opportunity for Neil's fans to get some fantastic exclusive comic books and to help us publish one of the great comic book artists of all time.  This Kickstarter is designed to help us raise the funds needed to remaster and print these fantastic tales.  We're asking that fans consider supporting this great cause and help us to make Neil's many creative tales available to a wider audience.  This is our chance to give back to someone that has shared his unique creative vision with us for over thirty years.  

We're launching the Vokesverse with these two titles and many upcoming new properties.  This is the first step into a wonderful world of creativity from one of the all time greats.  Thank you for helping us make this a reality!

This is a very limited offer that allows you to request a specific illustration and get the original art delivered to you! Plus - we will use your image on a cover to an upcoming issue if you like and dedicate a page in the issue for you to talk about what the project means to you.

Please note - the final say of what can or can't be used on a cover rests with the creator - Mr. Vokes.

Risks and challenges

From all of us here at American Mythology, we want to wish a sincere THANK YOU to everyone helping us to get started. The independent comic book market is a very difficult place. It is hard to get placement alongside industry giants like Marvel and DC. Our main goal with this program is simply to raise some of the money to print the comics and to provide some money to the creators that have contributed to bringing these books back. The cost to print and distribute one comic book is many thousands of dollars much less to publish two like we are proposing in this fundraiser. Many times comics lose far more money than they earn out just to get them into stores and leave their creators and publishers in debt. With your help we can make sure these creative visions get to the readers and the artists are taken care of. Thank you!

EAGLE and DEATHS DARK ANGEL are fully authorized comic book series. Neil Vokes has been the driving force behind these books for so many years that we want to be able to give something back to him as a thank you for all the enjoyment his work has given us. We're hoping comic fans will feel the same and will help us to make this a successful program.

We will do our best to ship the physical comics out immediately upon publication. Goods that have to be signed after publication may take several additional weeks to get together. We believe that everything will be in your hands by June/July and maybe even a bit sooner. Shipping on time is important to us so we will do everything possible to make your experience with us a positive one.

Digital codes will be delivered via ComiXology.

American Mythology is gearing up to start announcing even more fantastic properties and comics coming up very soon. All of the Kickstarter supporters are helping to make our expansion and creation of new products a reality and we thank you for coming along with us for the ride! We appreciate your support whether it's via pledge or helping us to get the word out on social media - Twitter, Facebook, friends, and other social media makes all the difference in the world! You can visit us at www.americanmythology.net to see what we have coming up and to be a part of the program we are developing.
