WHAT IS THIS? The Argo 5 comic series is chock full of superhero action but additionally delves into the social relationships of the characters. The team faces aliens, demons, mythological deities and bad dates! The story continues in this second volume, collecting issues 6-11, with the origin of Blue Dynamo and the quest for Gladiatra to try to locate her missing father, Megamax, the world's greatest megahero.
WHO ARE ARGO 5? Gladiatra is the super-powered and stern team leader. Her boyfriend Shazrath, is the Maltese god of strength. Sci-fi fan, Blue Dynamo, has the power of a blue star. Chain Reaction is a Mexican martial arts master with the ability to set in motion actions to bring about a desired result (but also the inability to not act like a jerk sometimes) and Kasira is half-human and half-genie trying to find her place in this world. Billionaire Denny Dennis backs the group even setting them up in their own space station.
WHY KICKSTARTER? Simply put, the printing costs of trade paperbacks is beyond our scope so we are asking for help to print these trade paperback collections. We have paid for the single issues out of pocket and do not believe in asking you to invest in anything we would not be willing to invest in ourselves. Funds will go towards printing and postage of the trade collection and Kickstarter fees. Anything left will go into paying the indie creators who are currently working on bringing you future issues. You are directly backing indie creators by backing this campaign.

Writer Dan Sehn teamed with the artistic talents of Alex Garcia, Rafael Dantas Gomes, Rafael Lanhellas, Alan Faria, Carlos Henry, Tazio Bettin, Mike Gallagher, Scott "Shade" Jones, Antonio Brandao. Ben Dunn, Greg Nichols, and TG Sangalang with colorists Giuseppe Pica, Alan Faria, Erika Ferreire and Miguel Marques to produce issues 6 to 11 which are collected in this trade paperback.
