About


Zoe Moore was a college senior whose dreams of graduating with honors went up in flames, along with her dormitory, when her explosive pyrokinetic abilities manifested. In the wake of this personal tragedy, she traded in her books for a sleek costume and the code-name HOT DOG and now fights the forces of evil as a member of P.R.I.M.A.L. FORCE, the nation’s elite team of superheroes! 

But Zoe will soon learn that being a superhero is no easy task! Not only will she have to deal with the never-ending threat of supervillains popping up at every turn, she'll have to prove herself to a team leader who she's convinced hates her! It's going to be a long, hard road, and we'll be there to witness all her failures and triumphs.

The concept for P.R.I.M.A.L. FORCE was born many, many years ago and has gone through many, many changes. I recently got things just the way I want them and thought this would be the perfect time to put it out there into the world.   

Issue 1.1 introduces us to the individual members of the team, some key members of their supporting cast, and a villain who will make sure Zoe's first day on the job starts with a bang! 

For the most part, stories will be told in the "one-and-done" format with some subplots running throughout. No decompression here! I like to get right to the heart of things.   

Dogwood has arrived and he is not happy...
Dogwood has arrived and he is not happy...
Yeah. That's gonna leave a mark.
Yeah. That's gonna leave a mark.

I created P.R.I.M.A.L. FORCE to be an ongoing series and I've got three years worth of stories I want to tell. 

The debut issue is numbered 1.1 and subsequent issues will follow suit; 1.2, 1.3, and so on. If I'm lucky enough to get the chance to produce six issues, closing out the first big story arc, I'll then be able  to collect them all into a TPB and fill that with all sorts of "behind the scenes" extras, a sketchbook, unused pages, fan art, pinups, etc.  

In addition to copies of the book and inclusion in our THANK YOU page, backers can look forward to rewards like custom character sketches and original, signed pages from the book.

...and for the backer that evolves to become the APEX PREDATOR, you'll get all the rewards from the previous tiers as well as the original, unaltered cover artwork and a custom drawing of yourself as an animal of your choosing! 

Risks and challenges

I think the potential risks for this first campaign are minimal. The entire issue is already fully illustrated and the lettering and coloring can be done simultaneously. Getting the book finished, shipped to the printer, and sent out to backers will hopefully be a smooth operation. Barring any catastrophic events; zombie apocalypse, alien invasion, etc. I think we should be OK.

If this campaign funds, there'll be a bit of a gap in between the completion of it and the start of future campaigns, as I'll have to get cracking on the art before I proceed to launch another, but I'm fast and I know where this project is going, so that, too, should be a breeze. Fingers crossed that I'm right!

    There'll be a bit of a longer wait for this tier, but only because I'll need time to get the commissions drawn. If we don't fund and you'd still like your custom commission done, we can arrange that after the campaign ends.
