Only 3 Days Left For Dynamite Thor - Explosive Superhero Action!
13 days ago – Sun, Mar 15, 2020 at 07:35:30 PM

Our campaign is almost over for our new book. I've got Dynamite Thor 100% done and ready to send out digitally to backers as soon as all the funds clear from Kickstarter so you'll have some great reading entertainment on your Corona quarantine for backers :)

This is a really fun superhero book and if you enjoy Flying Sparks I guarantee you'll appreciate the writing on Dynamite Thor.

Thanks everyone who supported so far! Flying Sparks 4 is getting colored and we'll go live with it as soon as I can get all of our physical rewards delivered for D-Thor. Hopefully in the next couple of months.

Check out the Dynamite Thor kickstarter campaign here and back today. Don't miss it! Ends Tuesday!

Kickstarter Has Shadowbanned My New Project
about 1 month ago – Sat, Feb 22, 2020 at 02:19:06 PM

Dynamite Thor is completely unsearchable on the site. You can't look up "Dynamite Thor" and find it. No potential backers can can't discover it through perusing the site. It's not listed on Google as a consequence.

For all intents and purposes, the campaign has been erased.

I've put in a ticket to Kickstarter support in case this was a simple error, but I don't think it was. I believe I've been targeted and my book's been suppressed intentionally.

It means the only people who even have a shot at seeing my project are my prior backers (you) through posts like this, or people who get the link from me directly. It's a killer to a campaign.

Despite all of it, we're still really close to funding. We need just under $900 to get there and ensure this book's success. The platform can't slow us down.

If I can't get this resolved, I'll move future projects to IndieGoGo, but for now it's about getting this comic book made, helping great artists like Donald Kent be able to earn money off his hard work, and making sure you can read what is going to be the most fun superhero book of the year.

Please back today and get us over the finish line. Send a clear message to whoever is causing me problems that it won't stop the signal, and we will continue to make and support great indie comics.

Thanks everyone for all you've done so far. Being this close under these conditions is truly amazing and such a testament to our comic community's strength.

Hopefully I'll have a happier update soon!

Excelsior!

Our Graphic Novel Is Almost Funded!
about 1 month ago – Thu, Feb 20, 2020 at 12:35:25 PM

We're really close. About $1,500 until we have the Dynamite Thor graphic novel funded and ready to get into your hands.

Like always with my team, we'll have these books for you quickly because we pride ourselves in our ability to get books out and done on time. 

Dynamite Thor is a superhero whose power is immunity to explosives, so he uses a belt of dynamite sticks to chuck at bad guys and to propel himself through the air in flight! It's a crazy amount of fun. 

If you enjoy the great writing of Flying Sparks, you'll definitely love this action-packed superhero adventure of a hero gaining his calling... in the middle of a war zone in Iraq!

You've never seen a book like this before, and you'll have so much fun reading about  D-Thor as he soars through the air with blasts behind him. Make it happen today! You can fund great comics and keep the indie culture alive!

Back today!

Excelsior!

Last Day For Volume 3!
6 months ago – Fri, Sep 27, 2019 at 01:49:46 PM

Make sure to get in on the campaign before it closes. 

If you thought volume 2 had a lot of action, things get absolutely crazy in this installment. Meta-Girl confronts Peter Buxton! The mob war gets personal! Both our characters' worlds are spiraling out of control. 

Back today.  

Getting To The Final Week For Volume 3!
6 months ago – Fri, Sep 20, 2019 at 03:10:10 AM

Hope everyone's doing great! 

We're getting to the final stretch of the Flying Sparks Volume 3: Choices campaign. 

I just got the end of chapter 9 in for colors, marking the end of volume 3. This is the last image of the volume: 

...who you might recognize as she shows up in volume 2 as well. It doesn't spoil much of the story because the dialogue is super important to this particular piece (also why I didn't give the whole page), but I think it's beautifully done. So much so I want to give this hooded rogue her own book!

Of course, it takes funds to do that. If you want to help this universe expand and keep it going, Flying Sparks needs your support! With your help, we push this book up to the levels where the last one closed -- and beyond. Then we can start working on building a true superhero universe just like Stan Lee did back in the 60s. 

Real character development. Real stories with meaning. No retcons! 

That's the vision, and I hope you'll be along for the ride. Flying Sparks is just heating up and it's about to get crazy. As you see by Jethro's lines above -- we keep getting better with each volume, each story keeps becoming more epic than the last. This is the grand comic tradition.

Back Volume 3 today! Help the industry alternative keep going strong. 

Excelsior, my favorite readers!
