The teenage members of Pantheon throw party to let off steam and are confronted by the brutal reality of their new super powers

Here's a 5-page lettered preview of The Pantheon Project #2! Please follow the Dropbox link and check out the PDF --> http://bit.ly/122TiO9

The Pantheon Project - Issue #2 (of 5)

The Pantheon Project is a five-issue, full color comic book series for readers 16+ (contains moderate violence, moderate profanity and suggestive themes). All members of the creative team are Denver locals.

The story is about four teenagers who must face an amazing and dangerous reality when they are mysteriously granted the super powers they made up as children. I'm looking to paint a very grounded picture of young adults shouldered with an impossible situation how their actions/choices determine their fates. While I love the spectacle commonly found in the superhero genre, it's the stories with an unmistakably human center that remain memorable.

Previously in The Pantheon Project:

Milton Manners, Simon Cotey, Kelsey Radcliffe, Zhen Ferris and Oliver Grey - childhood friends whose collective imaginations created a fictional superhero team where each child had his or her own amazing super power. Milton Manners named this superhero team PANTHEON.

Fate would prove unkind to the creatively gifted Milton Manners. At a young age, he was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor; a kind the medical community has never witnessed before. On Milton's 18th birthday, the tumor erupted and power exploded from his body. It was a sublime force that that changed the world, especially for his friends who now have the powers they fantasized about as children. It was everything Milton could have wished for... except the event killed him.

Simon, Kelsey, Zhen and Oliver must come together to uncover the mystery behind their radical transformations while struggling to maintain control over their lives. It won't prove easy as there are now other forces out in the world who want this so-called Pantheon out of the way…

What's #2 all about?

Thanks to Milton Manners, superpowers have come to the small town Liberty, Massachusetts. But wait... superpowers exist only in fantasy right?

Milton's death left his massive hilltop house unattended and the newly-minted Pantheon has taken residence. Kelsey (Vanguard) insists they use the space to learn how to control their powers. However, the others have a different idea...

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The challenges will include collaborating with the creative team in delivering a comic book on time and one that satisfies expectations. Leila is a consummate professional and Rus is a seasoned industry veteran - both of whom do what is necessary to get the work done.

With the last KS project, the rewards went out a little later than I would have liked. I have learned so many valuable lessons and have 100% confidence people will see their rewards arrive on schedule.
