HYPER HEROES IS A COMIC BOOK ABOUT NORMAL KIDS HAVING NORMAL LIVES. AND HYPERPOWERS. IT STARTED AS A HOBBY AT SCHOOL, WHERE IT GATHERED A HUGE CULT FOLLOWING OF ABOUT 9 PEOPLE. BUT HEY, THEY WERE THE STORY’S PROTAGONISTS. BECAUSE THAT’S THE POINT OF HYPER HEROES: THE READER IS THE PROTAGONIST! AND WE DON’T MEAN IT IN A “CHARACTERS THE KIDS CAN IDENTIFY WITH” WAY. WE’RE LITERALLY SAYING OUR READERS ARE THE CHARACTERS. AS IN, WE TAKE YOUR FACE AND YOUR MANNERISMS AND YOUR NAME AND PUT THEM IN A COMIC BOOK HERO, AND WE GIVE THE CHARACTER SKILLS AND SPECIAL POWERS BASED ON YOUR OWN STRENGTHS AND QUALITIES. AND YES, THAT CHARACTER THEN HAS A STARRING ROLE IN A SUPERHERO STORY. I’VE DONE THIS FOR 30 YEARS, FIRST AS A SCHOOL-AGE HOBBY, THEN AS AN ARTIST FOR KID’S BOOKS AND ANIMATED FILMS; NOW I WANT TO INDULGE MYSELF AGAIN, AND TO TELL KIDS TO INDULGE THEIR OWN STRENGTHS, THEIR OWN SKILLS, THEIR OWN STORIES. YOU CAN ALREADY SEE THE ONGOING COMIC HERE AT THE WEBSITE; BUT WE ARE LOOKING FOR SUPPORT TO MAKE IT INTO AN ONGOING PRINT SERIES! YES, AND ONGOING PRINT COMIC WITH A ROTATING CAST OF YOU, YOU AND YOU (AND FEATURING… YOU)! WE ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING A KICKSTARTER PROJECT; BACKERS WILL HAVE THE CHANCE TO APPEAR IN THE COMIC AS CHARACTERS! STARRING ROLES WILL OF COURSE BE LIMITED, BUT WE’LL ALSO INCLUDE OUR READERS IN SPEAKING CAMEOS, BACKGROUND ACTION SHOTS AND ALL THE INTERMEDIATE CATEGORIES WE CAN THINK OF. AND WE ALSO INTEND EVERY ISSUE TO INCLUDE AN ILLUSTRATED LIST (LIKE A YEARBOOK IF YOU WILL) SHOWCASING THE READER CHARACTERS THAT DON’T MAKE THE CUT INTO THE STORY, WITH THEIR OWN CODENAMES, “REAL” NAMES (OPTIONAL), CHARACTER PROFILES, HYPERPOWERS AND HYPERSUITS! THE STORYLINES IN THE FIRST VOLUME WILL ESTABLISH THE HYPER HEROES SETTING, AND THE MAIN CONFLICTS AND ANTAGONISTS OF THE SERIES; HOWEVER, FUTURE STORYLINES WILL REVOLVE MAINLY AROUND THOSE CHARACTERS THAT MAKE THE FINAL CUT. THAT’S HOW I MADE THE FIRST HYPER HEROES COMICS, AFTER ALL. HOW DOES THAT SOUND SO FAR? WANT IN? CHECK OUR KICKSTARTER PAGE!parents section
