About this project

Buzzboy, Roboy Red & Leon: Protector of the Playground are the stars of this tween-a-riffic graphic novel collection, by award-winning comics creators John Gallagher, Rich Faber, & Jamar Nicholas.

This ambitious three-book collection will take at least $6500 to pay for coloring, lettering, design and printing costs. Over 300 pages of color-filled adventure will be offered up for audiences of all ages. Here's what critics have to say:

"Buzzboy: A-Plus! The energy of the lead character and his antics almost leaps off the page." - Comics Buyer's Guide

"Buzzboy is a "Where's Waldo" of sorts with cartoon, comics, TV, movie, and other characters drawn into the crowd and background scenes. From page to page the reader never knows whose name will be dropped or who or what may appear next. It's that unpredictability and fun that makes Buzzboy something accessible to everyone." - Publishers Weekly

"Roboy Red...  is a particularly clever tale, painting the character as something of a sci-fi Pinocchio -- an artificial boy with the heart of a real one. (Roboy and Buzzboy are)  two comics among the best all-ages superhero books being published." - comiXtreme.com

Leon: Protector of the Playground creator Jamar Nicholas:

"Jamar Nicholas is a master of his craft--his drawings are full of life and truly stunning." -Bryan Lee O'Malley, creator of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Also, Jamar is a 2011 GLYPH Comic Awards recipient: Story of the Year, Best Male Character for his book, Fist Stick Knife Gun, plus 2011 Rising Star Award!

"LEON: PROTECTOR OF THE PLAYGROUND" by Jamar- Schoolyard champion and the world's first latchkey super hero! 

"ROBOY RED," by Rich- the tale of a runaway theme park robot -- atomic robot adventure! When a corporate magnate takes over the Roboyland theme park, they want to use Roboy's circuitry for weapons-- soon, Roboy and his friends Dara and Tuck are on the run!

"BUZZBOY"- by John- telling the story of “the world's coolest super sidekick!” When Buzzboy is left alone after an alien attack, he and the teen heroes need to save the day!
