Stretch Goal Added!!
Stretch Goal Added!!
Born from the ashes of a disastrous 3D-printing accident! These seven living advertisements are banded together by a former childhood star to right the wrongs of this world and to put an end to the evil Al-Chem Group as... THE MIGHTY MASCOTS!

The Mighty Mascots is a 25 page, full color, comic book and the first issue of an ongoing series. The story is a return to fun super hero tales that are sorely missing from today's comic book marketplace! If I had to describe the book, I would say that it's like a Saturday morning cartoon gone wrong!

The Mascots are a super team comprised of Six Cereal Mascots and 1 Soft Drink Pitchman. They were all born in the laboratory of the Al-Chem Group and were rescued by scientist Manny Coleman. This series picks up months after the rescue and right at the beginning of their first mission.They respond to a city wide alert that monsters have invaded the city and there are hints that the Al-Chem group might have had a hand in creating the terrors attacking the street. I do not want to give away anymore of the story or spoil it for you guys.

This comic is a return to fun comic books of the 80's. Big, larger than life characters having city-wide slug fests and peppered with enough story-line and characterization to keep you coming back issue after issue.

The artist I've chosen to join me on this journey is Ian Waryanto. I met him on Facebook and we hit it off instantly! His style is perfect for the series! It's a blend of modern and classic. I really like the look and design of his pages. I plan on adding a colorist to this project if we make our funding, and I will take on the lettering duties as well as writing and thumb nailing the book.

I've done one successful Kick starter in the past and had a blast putting it together. My hopes with this one is that we get enough funding to complete the first issue and head into stretch goal territory! I would love to get some established creators to do pin-ups and prints which would then trickle down to you guys in the rewards!

Below I have included the NUT-rition facts about our seven new heroes! I hope you guys enjoy them!

Risks and challenges

There are many costs associated with producing a comic book, and that's why I'm asking for help to make this project a reality. Not one penny of this funding will go to me. All of it will go towards paying the artist and colorist for this issue.

If we make our goal any money we make over the initial amount will be used towards printing additional copies, advertising the book, cover shipping costs, paying for rewards and additional stretch goals, any overages after that will go directly into producing Issue #2 and for purchasing tables at comic cons in the area to promote the book.

Thank you for looking at my Kickstarter page and I hope you back this fun and exciting super hero comic book!
