Cover Remarque Sketch

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!" 

- Fabian Nicieza (X-Men, New Warriors, Co-creator of Deadpool)

"I collaborated with Joe St.Pierre on VENOM...he's only gotten better over the years, and "The Liberaider" proves that." 
- Larry Hama (Wolverine, G.I. Joe)
"Nobody combines the panel-bursting, explosive energy of the Silver-Age greats with the stylish narrative chops of a modern master like Joe StPierre. In the 20 years that I've known him, he's been a non-stop creative wellspring of fascinatingly original characters and concepts."
- Mike Cavallaro (Eisner-nominated creator of Nico Bravo, Parade With Fireworks)
"I found myself absorbed page after page and becoming all the more enchanted with the brilliant and really riveting artwork. He has added new meaning to today’s graphic novel."
- The Amazing Kreskin

All of the products available on this campaign are complete! Printing/shipping of New Zodiax Aquarius and Megahurtz is scheduled for July 2022. Your items will be delivered in August 2022, except for commissions. Commissions will be shipped by October 2022.


Covid-19 complications or paper/scheduling delay issues are a possibility. I will keep all backers in the loop if these issues arise.

Frequently asked questions

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.

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

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.

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at hello@wearezoop.com and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.


Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

Please use the notes section in the last checkout step or you could e-mail us at hello@wearezoop.com 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
