About this project

 The descendant of the goddess Athena with the same name comes to Earth to fight invading gods and monsters! A problem arises when she arrives; the power that banished the gods originally is sapping her life force too! Now she must bond with a human to stay and reluctantly ends up bonding with a scrawny college student named Erin! Together they transform into Patriotika and fight the invading gods and monsters, protect and rally military soldiers, and deal with college social life! The powers of a god, the troubles of a teenager!

Two Become One
Two Become One

Patriotika is the first and most powerful hero in the Mount Olympus Comics Universe. She has super human strength, durability, speed and flight. She can also use magic that can empower or depower allies and enemies. Through her comic other heroes and villains will be introduced that may eventually have their own comic too! In this first issue Collateral Dee is a skyscraper size hero, and only Patriotika is strong enough to save her from drowning! Collateral Dee's comic is coming later this year too so this is her first appearance! The biggest super hero around needs help! The biggest super hero around needs help!

The mysterious force that keeps the gods out isn't the only measure in place to prevent their return. A Powerful War Wraith spawns and attacks Athena and Erin, and it puts Erin's friends lives in danger!

Erins friends are in trouble!

Erin merges with Athena and they transform into the tall, strong and powerful Patriotika whenever there is trouble. Athena advises Erin through a mental connection on how to use her powers. Ultimately it is up to Erin as to how she uses them.

It's time to grow up Erin!

Patriotika is a 24 page comic with superhero action, peril and adventure. The story is written by Ron Zabala, the lines are by Antipus, colors by Candice Han and lettering by Keith Perkins. The comic is fully illustrated and lettered, but I need your help to get more printed, get it noticed, and get the sequel started! I made a small print run with my own money for conventions and for this Kickstarter. That means you will get your finished comic much sooner! And there's variant covers plus cool swag you can pick up depending on how much you pledge!

Five stretch goals have been unlocked! Each time a stretch goal is met there will be additional rewards added to existing pledge rewards, such as upgrades, extra rewards and more!

 This tier has been unlocked! The Kickstarter book powers up!  Instead of the Patriotika and Erin cover by the Silva Brothers, the cover will be by fan favorite Marvel/DC artist Alé Garza!  Colors by the amazing colorist Ceci De La Cruz!  The Patriotika and Erin image by the Silva Brothers will be included as a mini print instead for everyone that pledged for a physical book or higher and the book with the Silva Brothers cover is available as an add on.

Everyone that pledged for a physical reward will receive a print from the photo shoot, and everyone that pledged for the Early Bird Four Book combo or higher will receive 2 additional prints for a total of 3 prints of AZ Powergirl in Patriotika Cosplay and they will receive the digital photo set! At higher stretch goals more photos will be added to the rewards too!

 

 

This tier is unlocked! The Kickstarter version of the book is upgraded and this time the chromium book is upgraded too!  They both get interior back cover art by Pasquale Qualano and Raymund Lee!  And everyone that pledged for a physical reward tier or higher will receive a bookmark with art by Patriotika #1 interior artists Antipus and Candice Han!

Risks and challenges

The comics are already printed with the exception of the chromiums and stretch goal rewards, and my printer has stated a 2 week turn around time on those once they are started.
