TWELVE characters can tap into the cosmic energies of the Zodiac signs, and they manifest as different paranormal skills in each person. NEW ZODIAX will spotlight one of the twelve individual characters in their own issue, while reinventing the ancient astrological signs for a modern era AND maintaining an interactive universe. Ambitious? Maybe, but I am confident with your help we can do it!
The NEW ZODIAX AQUARIUS is the LIBERAIDER, an elite level hacker who is the Robin Hood of Cyberspace, stealing from the info-rich to give to the info-poor. This is the ORIGIN story of our hero!
NEW ZODIAX is much like my Marvel Universe, with storylines that will cross over from one series to another. Characters will interact with one another in future stories—whether they meet for a common cause or as adversaries will remain to be seen!
The NEW AQUARIUS origin story originally appeared in the NEW ZODIAX mini-series #1 and #2, and both printings of the NEW ZODIAX Trade Paperback, ALL of which are SOLD OUT! For NEW ZODIAX AQUARIUS #1, I will be remastering the coloring and including several pages of NEVER BEFORE SEEN, behind the scenes process material.
The character of the NEW AQUARIUS/LIBERAIDER is central to the NEW Z mythos, and is very special to me, for a couple reasons:
1)--the topic of cyber-espionage is more timely today than ever.
2)--he has been bashing on the inside of my brain for decades, shouting LET ME OUT!
A prototype version of the LIBERAIDER can even be found in my very FIRST creator-owned comic book: MEGAHURTZ!
MEGAHURTZ was created by me and David Chlystek, and published by Image Comics in 1997. The story takes place in a world where corporate oligarchs are finally at open war with each other to determine who will rule the Earth, and humanity be damned!
Virtual Reality mogul and darling of the people ADRIAN ADONIS has become a genuine threat to the N-Corporation, so the N-Corp literally seeks to ELIMINATE the competition!
They create a living weapon: MEGAHURTZ, a grotesquely constructed monstrosity of muscle grafts and cybernetic implants, whose gun is literally a part of its body. MEGAHURTZ’s mission becomes an odyssey to discover its own true origins and ultimately, its humanity.
I am Joe St.Pierre, the creator/writer/artist of NEW ZODIAX. Most people I meet know me as the artist on many SPIDER-MAN and VENOM comics for Marvel. I have also worked for DC, Image, Valiant, Boom, etc. I am also a commercial and storyboard artist, and am the co-creator of the FABIEN COUSTEAU EXPEDITIONS Graphic Novel series published by Simon & Schuster.
"Liberaider is an intriguing super-cyber saga by a multi-talented writer/artist. Characters & computers combine for a story that’s as relevant as today, as new as tomorrow."
- David Michelinie (Iron Man, Spider-Man, co-creator of Venom)
"Joe St.Pierre is one of the amazing talents to come out of the early days of Valiant. A groundbreaker."
- Jim Shooter (Editor-In-Chief Marvel, Valiant)
"Joe St. Pierre has always been about one thing -- making every story the best it can be. With Liberaider, he is at the peak of his craft!"

Big thanks to everyone who has contributed to my first ZOOP campaign in the first two days. I'm new to this platform, so it means a lot that you would spend your time and energy helping me to Spread The New Z! Thanks to the folks at ZOOP as well, it has been a very smooth experience so far.
I set the $ goal of this campaign to fund a special ZOOP variant cover of NEW ZODIAX AQUARIUS #1 and that’s about it! This book is happening, I'm planning to go to press in early June, to be available in late July, so pre-order with confidence. We can make the ZOOP variant happen!
Please keep in mind that the NEW ZODIAX is a maxi-series, with each issue spotlighting a character who can control the energies of the stars. With NEW ZODIAX AQUARIUS #1, you are seeing the first in the series! Get in on the ground floor now, and look for NEW ZODIAX PISCES #1 this fall!
As you know, it's all about the shares and the getting out of the word, so please do your best to remind everybody you know about the NEW ZODIAX AQUARIUS #1 here on ZOOP, and #spreadthenewz !
Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.
We use Stripe for checkout because it is VERY secure. They exceed industry security standards and are trusted by thousands of companies, including Amazon, Lyft, Slack, Shopify, and Airbnb, who use Stripe's software tools to accept payments. Their interface is pre-made by them and we don't have the ability to augment it in any way. Once there, you have 15 minutes to complete the transaction by hitting the 'SAVE CARD' button.
If the campaign doesn't fund, your pre-order will be canceled, and the pending charge will disappear. You'll get an email confirmation with a summary of rewards and charges both after the initial pledge and after the actual charging of the card (try looking in your spam folder if you don't happen to see it in your inbox).
Please e-mail us at email@example.com and we'll get right back to you!
You could e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.
Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS
Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.
If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.
No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it! And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.
Yes! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.
