We are creating 2 sci-fi adventure comics and we need your help to do it.

H.O.P.E.: Tales of the Nuclear Family (or H.O.P.E.) is an adventure series starring the "Nuclear Family".  Our heroes are a uniquely assembled bunch surviving together as a family in an unforgiving wasteland.  The story is packed with danger and fun in the vein of 80’s classics such as “The Goonies” and the “Indiana Jones” series.

The Nuclear Family are not your typical comic heroes, this multicultural and eclectic group consists of:

  • Mom, an experimental super solider.  We all know that Mom has always been a superhero!
  • Dad, an infamous mercenary.  He has forsaken his past to ensure the future of his new family.
  • Glory, the ultimate teenage wasteland survivor.
  • The 9 year old “Twins” - Jo and Mena, both scientific orphans.
  • And the ever mischievous pre-teen Zeke who is the abandoned son of Bandits

Civilization has fallen; nuclear fallout mutants roam and robot armies march endlessly.  In this haywire world virtually anything can happen and will.  Each of our heroes have survived this futuristic war torn world to together become a new family unit.  Beneath their incredible adventures the story explores the bonds of love and family.

Who's on the team?

There's me, Raymond, the writer and creator.  I created H.O.P.E. about four years ago and have been working to produce the series for almost a year now.  I've always been inspired by the creativity of comic books.

The H.O.P.E.: Tales of the Nuclear Family series also has a solid team of artistis.  Rafael Desquitado provides anime influenced artwork to a story called "Broken Hope".  This H.O.P.E. special presents our favorite family in a daring rescue against incredible odds.  Also on "Broken Hope" we have Aaron James and Fred Stresing providing colors.

Jacob Elijah Hallinen came along for the ride with his amazing imagination and brings with him his creative style.  Jacob delivers great fun and mayhem in a mini story named "New Toys".

The action continues with Kim Jacinto as he delivers the family's ongoing adventures.  Beginning with "How Dad Met Mom", a story about… well… how Dad meets Mom.  Let's just say it's not your typical first date. 

How you can help.

Your support will allow us to complete and print 2 issues.  Your support will go directly to artist rates for 6 contributing artists, Kickstarter costs and printing.  Our Kickstarter goal is just enough to get the comics to readers!  Thank you for your interest.

Special Note on International Shipping:

For international shipping please add the additional shipping rate to your pledge amount.
