Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ on Kickstarter

Official Press Release

LOCAL AUTHOR USES SOCIAL MEDIA TO FINANCE SUPERHERO COMIC BOOK

Tucsonan author Eric M. Esquivel takes of advantage of internet to bankroll controversial new comic “Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ”.

Kickstarter link:  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1321764791/thor-unkillable-thunder-christ

Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ tells the story of a rowdy immortal youth who is banished from his father’s Heaven to a world whose Gods are weak, absent and criminally negligent.

Rather than mope about his banishment and beg his Pop for a ticket back home, Thor elects to stay on Earth, and give her inhabitants the kind of God they deserve– one who would rather bludgeon their enemies to death with a hammer than be nailed to a cross by them.

Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ will be published, marketed, and distributed by Moonstone books, the publisher who has brought us books like The Green Hornet, Voltron, The Phantom and Captain Action.

Eric is using Kickstarter to finance the first print run of the books (a common practice among “indie” publishers).

Eric M. Esquivel has been writing comics for seven years (in a row, even),  and can be found online at www.Facebook.com/ericMesquivelFanPage, www.Twitter.com/ericMesquivel, and at www.ModernMythologyPress.com
