The Hero By Night creative team wants to continue with new FREE comics in the future and we're offering some amazing incentives today.

All backers at any level will receive a copy of the DRM free, digital deluxe version of HBN issue 4, RIGHT NOW!!! (available in the backer's only side) - AND we are running a very special "Secret Origin of Doctor Nowhere" comic every Friday for Backers only!

What's Hero By Night all about?

Hero By Night isn't your run-of-the-mill modern superhero story. In fact, it's a love letter to the old school all-ages comics of the 1950's and 60's. Our story begins with a young man, Jack King, who stumbles upon the hidden lair of a hero who vanished in 1956. Jack's first thought isn't to run out and become a superhero by night, he thinks he's struck it rich and tries to sell some of the original hero's artifacts on ebay. Little did he know it would draw the attention of the old hero's archenemies looking to settle old scores and obtain the his "Vitalogy Ring", which granted him super strength, invulnerability and perfect health... maybe TOO perfect. When Jack discovers the ring has given him these abilities he decides to go rescue his friends he put in danger, forcing himself into the role of the new Hero By Night and taking down a wanted cyber terrorist.

A New Kind of Hero... A New Kind of Comic

With the success of this campaign we want to continue to tell the story of a Hero worth believing in, in an all new and exciting format. We're tired of comics that are being drawn to fit the printed page or formats that don't work well on all of your digital devices. We believe our new "digital deluxe" issues strike the right kind of balance, staying true to the feeling of traditional sequential art storytelling and getting rid of the bells and whistles of animation and motion comics. We really believe this is the future of comics in your hands today.  You can download a free preview of what we're talking about here. And all backers will have access to download our first full digital deluxe edition (available in the backer's only section)  You can read hundreds of pages worth of our Hero's story at herobynight.com for absolutely free as well!  Immerse yourself in our world of heroes, immortal alchemists, inter-dimensional warlocks, giant robots, and yes, we even have a LAVA MONSTER!
