Coalition Comics' The Power Company

$4,381

The Power Company! The battle cry is POWER ON! Fearlessly going into battle to provide justice for every being in the universe. Formed after a time/space portal unleashed the villainous Damage Inc into Professor Bizarre's world, the haphazard team of heroes from throughout the independent comics multiverse must come together to save the people of Earth! This for 1 issue. 32 pages. 24 pages of story.

Last April 2016, in the facebook forum ICC (Independent Creators Connection), eight creators came together to talk about combining ideas and characters for a new independent comics universe that came to be called Coalition Comics. Rodney Lockett of Iron Gate Comics, Jermaine Christmas of Kringlistic Comix, Joe Davis, Chris Thomasma, Carlos Raphael of Champion Comics, Tony Klapper of Nevaland/Crazy Monkey Ink Comics, Roy Johnson of Standard Comics, and John Jones of heroestcg hatched the idea of creating the Power Company. 

Seven heroes brought together by Professor Bizarre, a collector of the rarest and most powerful museum pieces in the universe, and a powerful mystic. Due to a mysterious time/space portal, seemingly created out of nowhere, the world conquering Cyborilla, with his claims of superiority over homo sapiens, assembles a group of like minded "soldiers" to help him take over Professor Bizarre's earth, (Necromage, Abominus, Sebek the Medjai, Priestess Danielle, BrimCoal, Poison Arrow, and Overcast) and overrun his sanctum as the spoils of his defeat...Damage Inc! Traveling the outermost independent comics universe, Professor Bizarre recruits Five Star, Metalmorph, Forecast, Crimson Streak, Victory, Spirit's Destiny, and Killer Wail to fight the good fight, and rid his world of this diabolical threat.

After losing Joe Davis and Chris Thomasma early on in the process, Coalition Comics was joined by Dorphise Jean of Gente/ShortFuse Comics and her amazing character Spirit's Destiny, and the core nucleus of Coalition Comics was cemented. Coalition Comics then spent the next 8-10 months honing the storyline, hiring commissions, setting creative teams, and essentially preparing for this very moment...the launch of the Power Company Kickstarter!

This Kickstarter will unfold by promising you the first issue of Power Company, which will introduce you to the Power Company, Damage Inc, and watch the first storyline unfold. We will guarantee twists and turns galore in just this first issue, but we plan on bringing you the exploits of Power Company and Damage Inc for at least 5 issues, which will wrap up the first arc, and will feature guest appearances from other characters in the independent comics world! This might be you!

Art on the first two issues will be handled by the amazing Luis Rivera (Champions, Carriers, The Powerhouse), with colors by Escomic! (The Powerhouse, Carriers), and letters by Boom Studios vet Warren Montgomery (John Kirby : Fire Fox, Guardians of Creation). 

We've got gorgeous variant cover art by the irrepressible Jason Metcalf (Darkness, Lady Death, Games of Thrones, Eternal Descent), Joe Correa, Gilbert Monsanto, plus a special wraparound cover by series artist Luis Rivera!

As a group, we're trying to make comics fun again. We are striving for a vibe similar to those 80's X-Men, Justice League, and Avengers books. We want that sense of wonder and dread, without the overbearing darkness and bloodshed. There will be dark moments, but they will be met with weight and wonder, and not gratuitous. This is our group mission. MAKING COMICS FUN AGAIN. Join us in making this project come to life, and spread the news, share the fun, and let's raise the bar for what independent comics can be and fulfill their potential! As a community we can achieve great things. ALL THINGS.

Lastly, we will be presenting some awesome and RARE rewards! From the metal maven metal plate cover by Jason Metcalf, to the metal maven John Jones signature card set, to posters by some of the best artists in indie comics, to tee shirts and short run comics and more!!

PLEASE HELP US BY BACKING THE POWER COMPANY, SUPPORTING US WELL INTO THE FUTURE, AND MAKE THE BATTLE CRY "POWER ON!" A FORCE IN INDIE COMICS.

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal. Art has already begun on issue #1, and a successful campaign will ensure payment and production of more art by Luis Rivera. Most rewards are already completed, as well as the cover art work and variants. We are primed to deliver issue #1, the rewards, and member comics by October 2017.

The rewards are great! You give further life to Coalition Comics and the Power Company series. It allows us to present to you two amazing issues of Power Company, and set the foundation for the next three issues to come before the trade paperback. You receive collectible and rare rewards, including some gorgeous one of a kind covers, limited signed card decks, and attractive shirt prints only available to backers! You will also be on the ground floor of what we expect to be an independent comics breakthrough! Help us achieve this dream. Come along for the ride together, and POWER ON!!
