Is this cool to post here? If not, let me know and I'll delete it. Otherwise...here's what's going on:
Pimping out my buddy Michael Sarrao's Kickstarter! He's been collaborating with artist John Broglia (GOD COMPLEX, ATOMIC ROBO REAL SCIENCE ADVENTURES) for several years on UNMASKED: THE NEW AGE HEROES.
They're at around 70-75% of the way there (as of this writing)- so exciting! Here's what some pros say:
"Enjoyed the fast pace and stunning artwork. A winner in my book!"
-- Jimmy Palmiotti
(All Star Western, Queen Crab, Monolith, Trigger Girl 6, Jonah Hex)
"UNMASKED is a fun spin on the super-hero genre, and John Broglia's art and character designs are top notch. Buy this book!"
-- Jay Faerber
(writer on TV's Ringer, co-creator of Near Death and Dynamo)
"Michael Sarrao has combined the three magic ingredients of the classic comic book: great art, great writing and memorable characters. After you read the first one you’ll be clamoring for more!”
-- Vinnie Favale
Vice President of Late Night CBS Entertainment
UNMASKED follows Paige Cruise, a young journalist who has discovered a conspiracy
involving new and violent versions of her world's deceased, classic superheroes. She wants to unmask these New Age Heroes, as their tactics are just as ruthless as the supervillians they are trying to defeat. The added twist is that we don't know the identities of these supposed heroes...readers will find out when our main character does!
Once they hit their goal, they’re ready to pull the trigger on a lot of cutting edge stuff. In addition to printing a run on a TPB, they’ll also able to complete post-production on several webisodes -yes, LIVE ACTION video content! You can view a preview of their video at this address:
Give it a look and let me know what you think!
