Welcome! Thank you for checking out my project!
This Kickstarter is for the 1st issue of a 4 issue comedy series called Revenge of the Fanboys!
Want the elevator pitch?
What if the movie industry tried to put the comic book industry out of business?
In this alternate reality a corrupt movie executive is trying to buy out "The Big Two" to use the characters in their movies, and is planning on letting the comic book side die away. To prevent that from happening Jack and Todd have to go to the convention where the sale is going to take place and cause enough controversy and chaos to scare the movie executive off!
On the way Jack and Todd will face off against parodies of the most popular comic book creators of the past 20 years as they desperately fight to save the comic book industry!
About me: I have been an avid comic book reader for over 20 years and there are so many things to love about comics. This series is my way of celebrating that love, the only way an emotionally detached 30-something year old can, by making fun of it. If for some reason you want to hear more about me you can check the article I wrote for the first Kickstarter here:
But if you are anything like me, then the best way I can convince you to spend your hard earned money on this project is to direct you to the bottom of the page where you will see the beautiful art, colors, and letters from issue #1!
This is the second attempt at a Kickstarter for this series, with the first running this past January. So why would I think this will be more successful? Simple, everything is done except the printing! So the financial goal is much lower, and there is zero risk to you! If you back a lot of projects here on Kickstarter you have probably been burned a couple of times just like I have (looking at you Unsung Story) so that's not something you have to be concerned with here!
The story kicks off as Jack and Todd are at their favorite comic convention when they discover that a greedy movie company is planning on buying out the only comic book company in town to use their characters to make movies, essentially destroying the comic book industry.
In order to stop that from happening Jack and Todd have to create enough chaos and controversy at the convention (where the sale will be finalized) to scare off the movie company. As the battle lines are drawn Jack and Todd will be getting help from some familiar faces and they will be opposed by more familiar faces, parodies of some of the most popular comic book writers and artists in the industry.
I am massively proud of the team that is involved in this project. On art duties we have the superstar artist Adrián Sibar, who has done work on BATGIRL, BANG TANGO, SIX GUN GORILLA, and many more.
On lettering/design we have Micah Myers, who has done work for IMAGE, DARK HORSE, DEVIL'S DUE, ACTION LAB, and pretty much every indy comic ever made.
Now then, on to what you are really here for, the swag! Aside from digital and physical versions of Revenge of the Fanboys! #1 you can also add this phenomenal print showing a future in which comic conventions only allow celebrities! (we may be closer to this future than I originally thought)
Want to show off your fanboy allegiance? Check out the option for this high quality enamel pin!
So if you are a fan of funny comics please consider backing this project!

Risks and challenges
There are ZERO risks associated with this project. The art is done, the colors are done, the lettering is done, the enamel pins are done, the only thing left to do is print the comic and prints and ship them away!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
