Kickstarter Spotlight – The Mighty Titan
JGM Comics is trying something new. It’s releasing it’s newest title on Kickstarter. Joe Martino’s new
book The Mighty Titan takes Joe’s cancer experience and wraps it in a superhero shell. From the Kickstarter page:
The Mighty Titan is my newest creation that essentially takes my cancer (and other) experiences and wraps them in a superhero shell. This isn’t autobiographical. I have researched and talked to other cancer survivors to try and get the feeling of what other people have experienced. The plan is to do a 5 issue mini-series with the possibility of it continuing. I created Titan in 2004 during my first bout with Kidney cancer. It was a tough decision to take some of my personal experiences and put them to paper in order to entertain and possibly allow people a glimpse of what some of us go through while battling this potentially deadly disease.
This is basically a pre-order engine for the new mini-series and has rewards that range from the first issue to original art from the book to even staring in the comic. The Mighty Titan is a 5 issue mini-series that boasts the talents of Luca Cicchitti, Cory Smith, Jeff Austin, Keith J. Betancourt and Johnny Lowe. Issue one has a cover by Jerry Ordway and is colored by Danielle Alexis St Pierre.
