About

The length one man will go, the depth of what he will become, for justice and to right a wrong...  

Cornrows: There Are No More Heroes is a new urban fantasy comic book series written by Brian Hawkins and features artwork from Marcio Loerzer, inking from Adriana Abreu, gray tones from David Fox, and lettering by Guido Martinez.  The first issue, which is Part I of the series, is set in Baltimore, Maryland where the death of a young man has riveted the city. If you're a fan of the hit HBO series, The Wire, or Daredevil, or The Punisher (maybe all three), you're going to find it thrilling to follow our masked vigilante through the streets of B-More. 

The story follows Theo Mayfield, a high school P. E. teacher, as he sets out to avenge the death of his former student, Malik Williams.  With no one doing anything, Theo has decided to take matters into his own hands. Donning a mask, low-brimmed hat, and dark clothing, Theo sets out on the road to revenge... 

... But the road to revenge is a convoluted one.

What Theo finds out on that road to revenge is more horrifying than he imagined, worse than the murder of one child, and the city in which he lives, the people that he interacts with, and the students that he teaches, are are all in danger.

Whelp. That's the set up for the first issue. Theo is one man with no super powers, no cape, attempting to do something about the ills that affect his community and city. His journey will be a hard one as realism meets the "superhero" world, a world where there are no real heroes. We hope that you will join us as this story unfolds. Having said that, here's a preview of the first eight pages:

Where The Funds Will Go

The money raised will go towards the artist, production, printing, backer rewards, and shipping. And if we are fortunate enough to surpass our goal, additional funding will go towards creating new rewards or will be put towards the production of the next issue. No one is looking to get bank, we honestly just want the opportunity to tell this story consistently and see it through to the end. We want to produce a high-quality comic book series that we will be able to form and build a community around to interact with backers and readers.

Rewards (Exclusive Cornrows SWAG and Merch)

One of things that we reeeeally want to do is build a community based on and surrounded by the Cornrows comic -- and that's where the rewards come in. These will be the first offerings of this community and this world, exclusive to you the backers and readers of our new comic book series. Check 'em out...
