An EPIC Kickstarter Launching in One Week!

| September 16, 2013


Miami’s newest superhero has a problem…his only weakness is pretty girls. Literally.

On  September 23, ComixTribe will be launching a new Kickstarter campaign for  EPIC, a superteen action comedy.  EPIC  is the creation of writer  Tyler James  (The Red Ten) and artist  Matt Zolman. We are thrilled to finally get this book out to the public. While production of the book is complete, the Kickstarter will help us raise funds necessary to do a  premium offset print run  of the book, and get it to  the readers who want it most.


Here’s the  EPIC  pitch:

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 fanboys 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

Sounds like fun, right? A superhero whose kryptonite is the ladies…Maybe a few of you can relate!

We’re giving ComixTribe’s biggest supporters the heads up about  EPIC  now, because we’ll be offering a few bonus extras to  Day One Backers…which is to say, anyone who backs  EPIC  within the first 24-hours of the campaign.

As some of you might know, Kickstarter tends to showcase projects more if they get off to a fast start. We’d like to give those of you who help us do just that a little something extra. So, in addition to a special “ComixTribe: Day One Backer” stamp on your package, you’ll also receive advanced looks at ComixTribe’s 2014 books before anyone else. We really appreciate your support on these crowdfunding projects, as they help a small-imprint like ComixTribe compete (and win!) in a crowded marketplace.


Tonally,  EPIC  is a bit different than the other books in ComixTribe’s publishing line up.  EPIC  is pure pop-corn action and cheeky humor. If you’re looking for more FUN in your comics…EPIC  has you covered.

We’ll also be posting  EPIC  teasers on the  EPIC  Production Tumblr Blog  all week, so feel free to tune in over there as well.

We hope you’ll check out the  EPIC  campaign when it launches next week!
