You've heard the legend of Prometheus before; the titan who stole the flame of knowledge from the gods and gave it to mortal man, allowing us to grow and thrive.
For his trespass he was locked away to an eternal punishment at the hands of "The Eagle", a creature of Olympus that would make sure humanity's martyr would suffer for all time.
Soon Prometheus faded from fact to fiction to legend --
But he never a gave up on us.
The story begins with a battered Prometheus mysteriously liberated from his captivity and dying to see what mankind has made the knowledge he's suffered so long for.
And what did he find?
That's right, our modern world of nonstop pop culture, rampant anti-intellectualism, and a burgeoning classism.
One thing became abundantly clear through the noise of humanity's struggles: someone has stolen the flame of knowledge.
And now he's going to get it back.
Prometheus #1 is the 23 page first chapter of a 5 issue story about Prometheus' quest to find the flame of knowledge.
More importantly, it's his quest to rediscover and meet the world. While Prometheus is an action/revenge odyssey, it's also a story of expectation and reality. Prometheus is battered not only by the gods who imprisoned him, but by his disappointment with the world he now knows.
This is a book for anyone who's ever grappled with the feeling that the world isn't quite what they imagined it would be.
1st Goal $2800: DOUBLE SIZED ISSUE: We have plenty of time to go and don't plan on letting up now. Our first stretch goal is to make all copies of Prometheus #1 a DOUBLE ISSUE.

Risks and challenges
This project marks my fourth campaign on kickstarter. I'll have the books printed at RA Comics, the same American based distributor who's handled all my other campaigns. Each successful project has allowed me to reduce variables. I also continue to fully complete all my comics before launching the kickstarter which means the only real risk is finding enough funding to complete our project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
