“A long time ago, the world’s most renowned superhero disappeared and justice was handed over to the grim-n-gritty vigilantes that blurred the line between the righteous and the wicked. Everyone forgot what it truly meant to be a hero… until the day the Giant Robot Octopus Alien Monster attacked! When one little boy finds the courage to stand up to this alien invader, it just might be enough to inspire the return of the world’s greatest superhero…”
Does this sound super awesome? It should. Because it is!
Captain Ultimate is an all-ages superhero series created by Joey Esposito, Ben Bailey, and Boy Akkerman that’s published digitally by MonkeyBrain Comics. Captain Ultimate has been well received but, as is the nature of the beast (the beast being the direct market) Captain Ultimate is having a hard time finding a home in print.
Enter their Kickstarter! With a pretty modest goal of $15,000 dollars, this Kickstarter is looking to collect issues #1–6 in physical copies. Their final goal price includes the printing, shipping, and distributing costs (via Diamond) so kids and kids-at-heart all over the world can order the book from their local comic shop, library, or book store!
Issues #1–6 are absolutely complete, so the book will be off to the printer as soon as funding is reached. No months upon months of waiting for this amazing project!
New to Captain Ultimate? You can check out #1 (for free!) by following the link on their Kickstarter page!
With 19 days to go, pledge rewards start at $5 dollars with a hearty thank you from the creators and go all the way up to $500 dollars which will land your likeness in the comic as a recurring hero or villain, you’re choice!
