About

Where do old superfolk go when it's time to get out of the game? To Valhalla—Home for the Supertired. 

Created and written by Brock Heasley, and masterfully illustrated by Marc Lapierre, The SuperFogeys is a comic that begins as ridiculous as it sounds, but then quickly turns into something much deeper and devastating as our heroes are menaced by a mysterious villain with ties to their past. The lazy Captain Spectacular, quick-to-action Spy Gal, heartsick sidekick Jerry, crotchety old speedster Swifty, villainous Dr. Rocket, loony Star Maiden, morally compromised Tangerine, and sad sack Soviet Sam are all forced to reckon with old sins, new threats, and whether or not retirement was ever really a good idea in the first place. 

That's The SuperFogeys. It's funny (because we're just doing it wrong with a premise like that if it's not), but there's so much under the surface, a depth of story and character that attracted publisher Th3rd World Studios to it in the first place. 

And now, finally—FINALLY—this long-running online comic is ready to hit print with Volume One: Inaction Heroes, a 300-page book covering the first 17 chapters of the SuperFogeys saga for the first of what will be a massive two volume set. 

This is the way SuperFogeys was meant to be seen. Originally presented a strip at a time online, Volume One's square pages allow us to stack the episodes together and group them in a way that makes it look they never should have been presented any other way.

The thing that has made SuperFogeys worth doing all these years is the dedication and love of our readers. You guys notice the small things, get upset when your favorite characters get knocked down, and love each and every twist we've thrown at you. We want to make this campaign more than just about printing a book. We want to make it a thank you for all the years of support. Not only are we going to throw some fun behind-the-scenes style videos your way, we're ready to shower our backers with additional rewards like wallpaper, signed copies, your own SuperFogeys cameo, original art, and more.

 But why stop there? Side-by-side with The SuperFogeys has always been SuperFogeys Origins—tales from the early years of our heroes and villains drawn by a variety of talented artists. Meeting our stretch goals will allow us to include in the book some of these stories from the glory days that deepen the characters even more and show you just how they became the slightly broken people you know and love.

But that's not all. Besides getting SuperFogeys Origins into the book, we've also got Mini-prints and so many more goodies to give away as we meet our Stretch Goals. We can't wait to reveal them all to you.

Work on the book has been going on for over a year and is complete. We need your help to get it out the door and into stores. Our Kickstarter-exclusive cost for our backers for the book itself is a cool $25, but when this thing hits stores it's going up to $29.99. If you know you want your hands on SuperFogeys Volume One, now is the time!

Brock and Marc and everyone at Th3rd World are thrilled to finally get the SuperFogeys where it always meant to be: in print and in your hands. Any questions at all, please hit us up! We're here for you.

Risks and challenges

Work on the book is done and complete. All that is left to do is get it out the door! Printing isn't cheap and the majority of our funding will go towards the printing and shipping costs. We've already done pre-press and are awaiting the results of the stretch goals to see just how much of what we have planned will make it into the final book. Honestly, there isn't too much risk involved here. If we reach our funding goal, this book WILL be making its way to your door soon!
