A down-on-his luck actor. An impossible-to-pass-up opportunity. In a world where superheroes and supervillains are real and also the biggest business in the world — we're talking movies, TV shows, toys, video games, even Broadway — shadowy employers have ample reason to keep them fighting no matter what.
So what happens when a supervillain dies on the job, or just gets too old for this $#!+ and retires? Well, somebody's gotta step up and put on the mask. And actors have to work, don't they? Especially if they're slumming around doing kids birthday parties, and there are enough zeroes in the check. This series is literally 20 years in the making, so your help can finally bring it to life!

As of launch, the script is complete and seven pages of penciled/inked art are finished. We'll need approximately 3 months for the completion of the rest of the art/lettering, and then we'll head straight to print!
We anticipate a fall '23 fulfillment after a successful campaign, and Zoop will provide updates and communicate any delays that may pop up.
