About

In a city run by a mayor who seeks to control its citizens -

Where secrets and intrigue hide around every corner -

And your friends are merely people who don't want you DEAD -

One man must overcome his dark past and step up to become the hero that puts an end to the corruption... if he doesn't oversleep.

John Sloan is... Mr. Disaster!

 This is a four year old idea with an entire universe consisting of two other series; The All-New Union and The Fancymen, and many other ideas soon to come. Unfortunately, Mr. Disaster is taking his sweet time and holding everyone up by not having the funds to complete his first comic.

 THE COMIC 

Mr. Disaster is set in a fictional city named "Paradise" in the same universe as two other comics currently being written. While those comics are more about traditional super heroes, dealing with grander things, this one isn’t so much and is much more street level. The way this is going to be written given the characters and the mood, it can be very serious one moment to really wacky the next. I’d like to keep it bouncing back and forth like that, it not only makes it interesting to write but I think it shakes things up when being read. But the heart and soul of this comic, for now at least, is Mr. Disaster (John Sloan) understanding that he can be a hero despite the state of the world around him. In the midst of this he finds himself stuck in an underground war between the Resistance which is sort of a rag tag super hero group and his former employer Sidney Ahwem, mayor of the city.

 As the story progresses, you will learn more about Mr. Disaster (John Sloan) and the other characters he meets along the way. His immediate goal is to seek revenge on Sid Awhem and his special task force who is the reason behind everything that had befallen him but will learn there is a lot more at play. The further he goes the more he will understand that he had stumbled upon something much bigger than himself.

Risks and challenges

It seems impossible to find an artist willing to draw a comic you are writing, let alone for free. This is the main reason for this kickstarter so I can pay the artist to finish the first issue of this comic. The other reason will be for print. It seems like Disaster has been just an idea for so long and I am eager to see him come to life after writing numerous amounts of issues and spending countless hours fleshing out his story so it's not only entertaining but can coincide with the two other series going on. I apologize that the rewards are small but if I could afford merchandise and gifts then I wouldn't be on kickstarter. Here I am though and with your help, Mr. Disaster and I can take our first step in what I hope will be a long journey together.

As hard as this has been to complete, it will be nothing compared to the next step: getting the comic read. I'm looking forward to showcasing this book at comic-cons along with the other two books in the Junction City Comics universe.

Thank you for taking the time to check this out and if you made it this far, hopefully you are interested enough in this project to donate.
