Indy wrestler/promoter to publish new comic book series
Aug 21, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
from Sixteen Hectares:
Fundraising is now underway in support of indy wrestler/promoter Anthony Kingdom James’ new comic book series.
What if everyone who ever had superpowers had gone insane and become a threat to society? What if one man gained abilities “far beyond those of mortal men” but kept his sanity? Faced with a society that fears superhumans, a government that hunts them down and growing numbers of crazed supervillains all around him, Jacob Roth must decide to either put himself at risk by using his powers to help people or do nothing and remain safe while innocent people get hurt.
This is the premise of “The F1rst Hero”, a new comic book series coming soon from creator/writer Anthony Kingdom James, along with artist Phillip Sevy, colorist Keiren Smith and cover artist Lee Moder. The first four-issue mini-series will be published by Action Lab Entertainment.
From Wednesday August 21st until Thursday October 17th, Toronto-based Anthony will be holding an online crowdfunding campaign via the website IndieGoGo.com in support of his comic book. The fundraiser has a goal of raising $7500 or more to aid the project. For only $5, supporters who make a pledge can receive a digital copy of the series. Print copies start as low as $25, which includes shipping. Readers can also pledge towards more exotic perk packages which include t-shirts, original artwork from the series or even the chance to appear in the comic book themselves!
The money raised through this pre-sale will go towards helping insure the timely production of the book as well as help cover some of the legal fees and promotional material associated with launching a new comic book. You can read more about The F1rst Hero and see some sample pages from the series on the IndieGoGo campaign page at www.igg.me/at/firsthero or on the official website at www.sixteenhectares.com.
We hope that your media outlet can help us make both the IndieGoGo campaign and, in turn, The F1rst Hero comic book series, a rousing success. For more information or to arrange interviews, please contact Anthony at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your time and support.
