About this project
My name is David Miller. I have recently licensed the rights to do new comics material based on Dave (X-men co-creator) Cockrum's FUTURIANS.
When I was 10 years old I encountered Dave Cockrum's work in the pages of "LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES". In that one moment I instantly became a fan of comics, Dave Cockrum and consumed with the desire to work in the comics industry. Dave was my idol and my inspiration and I am thrilled to be able to further the adventures of one of his greatest creations: THE FUTURIANS.
I am starting with a mini-series starring my favorite character from the FUTURIANS: AVATAR!
I have 2 issues of a 4 issue mini-series completed and the first issue will be solicited in the May Diamond Comics Previews catalogue for books publishing in July. I have tried to do this comic the way I think Dave would have liked: A color, monthly comic with top talent on board. But doing a quality monthly comic with a professional staff incurs heavy production costs and that's why I am launching this pledge drive.
My main objectives are to:
a) Reintroduce the Futurians to the comic market and make them live again.
b) Produce a successful, profitable series.
c) And through my success, benefit the Cockrum family.
You can see preview pages of the first issue by going to www.futurians-avatar.com
The first issue has a cover by Flash and Legion of Super-Heroes artist Greg Larocque. Joe Rubinstein came aboard as inker with issue 2. Issue 2 will have a cover by legendary artist Mike Netzer.
I love the character of Avatar. A super-powered immortal whose rich back-story has yet to be plumbed. Until now!
So, what will you get from backing this project besides being part of an intense entertainment experience? Glad you asked!
Rewards will range from free comics to preliminary artwork to original art from issue #1 and for the highest backers top pieces of original comic art from my personal collection.
This is a labor of love. I have invested much of my personal finances and time to make this happen. But doing comics is a labor intensive process and if I am to continue doing it right, I need your help.
I'll be looking forward to hearing from you all in the next 90 days.
