Kickstarter Spotlight: Comixtribe’s Epic #1
What it is: After a freak experiment gives teenager Eric Ardor incredible powers, he does what you would do…he puts on a costume and becomes EPIC! Super strength, speed, flight, optic blasts…it’s a fanboy’s dream come true. Unfortunately, he’s just discovered he has one weakness…pretty girls! While most boys his age lose their cool around the hotties, EPIC loses his powers! Living in Miami, home to the zaniest super-villains AND the most bikinis per capita in America, it’s gonna be a problem…
Why I like it: I read the completed first issue, and it’s a solid entertaining read. The characters are fun, the discovery of powers entertaining and how the story is plotted out keeps you on your toes. I can’t recommend the issue enough. It’s another fantastic release from an independent publisher and a feather in their cap.
Best Pledge: $10 – You get two signed copies of the comic. One for you and one for you to share plus a signed postcard and a digital “director’s cut” copy.
Risk: LOW – The prices seem a bit low for a printed comic with shipping, but all of the production is paid for, so it’s going totally towards printing and shipping. Comixtribe has done Kickstarter’s before and they’ve delivered solid product each time. It’s a publisher (and creators) I’m confident in getting behind.
