About this project
What is Super!?
Super! is an original superhero comic set in a universe where Supers are commonplace. It’s a comic that proudly goes against the dark, serious tone that’s over saturated the comic market throughout the past few years. Instead, it offers readers a fresh, lighthearted, and fun experience, with each issue packed to the brim with laughs and high octane super-powered action.
The first issue is fifty-two pages of pure awesome. It's got bar-fights, robots, mimes, and monsters... and that's only within the first twenty pages. Tired of having superheroes sit around eating fish sandwiches? We are!
Check out a few pages below:
Why are we running a kickstarter?
Our goal is $2,500 because that is the amount of resources we will need to complete the color work for the first issue.
All rewards include a physical copy of the fifty-two page first issue, and all of them besides the first $5 reward tier will include a signed copy.
"REPRESENT!" T-shirt design:
"SKETCH COMMISSION" Examples:
ORIGINAL CATCH ART"
In this video, I'll cycle through all of the Catch Art reward pieces and describe them in a more detail. These pictures were taken with a camera phone, so the quality isn't amazing, but we thought it was important that the only copy of these pictures in black and white that would be available would be the one that you would own.
"ORIGINAL POSTER COMMISSION" examples:
Why don't you raise the money yourselves? It's called a JOB!
We know. When we're finished with our jobs, we start working on our comic, and time is not the only thing we've sacrificed. Our money is in Super! along with our blood, sweat, and tears. Should this kickstarter campaign be unsuccessful, we will continue to move forward towards our goal, it'd just be at a much slower pace.
Why do you call coloring your final step before publication? What about lettering?
The lettering for issue one is already complete!
Have you contacted a publisher?
We've started the process... cross your fingers for us!

Are any of the non-Super! art pieces used as examples for sale?
Nope, the pictures used in the examples were all commission pieces and no are no longer in our possession. If you want to buy 'em, you'd have to track down their owners and make them an offer.
All licenced characters, as seen above in commission sketches, are owned by their respective creators and companies. Batman, Rorschach, the Watchmen, The Question, the Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze are owned by DC / Time Warner. Spider-Man is owned by Marvel. Hellboy is owned by Mike Mignola and Dark Horse comics.
The $25 reward tier is the only reward tier where we factored in the costs of the shirt. Please add $5 to orders (and let us know when you're finished what it's for) and we'll send one your way!
To help offset the costs of international shipping, please add $2 "Get the book."
For international orders of the "Signed book" reward tier, we can send you a digital copy of each issue as it is released, and then mail you your signed issues of 1-6 after the release of issue 6, and then issues 7 - 12 after the release of issue 12. That way, we can keep the cost of the reward down, you'll still be able to read the comics as they're released, and you'll get all of your signed books. If that's acceptable, please add $10
to the cost of that reward.
(The post office told us it'd cost $7 per issue to mail them internationally, so if you really want the signed copies as they're released, add $80 to that reward.)
This is not a comic for kids - just for BIG kids - and it'll most likely be rated for teens upon its publication.
