by JD Boucher & George Kambadais

Presented by Arledge Comics: After a cosmic incursion, David gets a different superpower for every song his suit plays! Too bad it’s stuck on shuffle, and the powers end when the song does…
Add in living doodles causing havoc around town, and David is in for a wild summer vacation.

Take the wacky action of Ben 10, some character drama of My Hero Academia, some cosmic nonsense from Spider-Man: Enter The Spider-verse, and filter it through the prism of someone who has spent way too much time making action scenes in their head to songs, and you got Shuffle.

David’s summer vacation started as average as can be, until his brother’s old mp3 player was transformed into a super-powered suit! Now David will be spending his summer vacation as Shuffle, the playlist-powered superhero! 


Every song played in the suit gives David a new superpower, but it’ll only last until the song ends. And… the suit is stuck on shuffle. Luckily his best friend Megan is there to help him figure out his powers. But will that be enough to deal with living doodles popping up around town? And how will Shuffle deal when the threat comes from a place he never expected?


Guess you better press play and find out, huh?


Shuffle is an action-filled all-ages superhero graphic novel. It’s got some wild superhero action, stylish dynamic artwork, a character-driven story, and the taco incident. This is also the only comic that has 1) a soundtrack featuring amazing musical artists of all genres from around the world and 2) builds the superpowers of the main character based on those songs!

Stretch Goals


  • End credits scene! New content added to the end of the book.



  • Additional cover art added to the beginning of each chapter of the book.



  • Upgrade from soft to hardcover!


We estimate it will take 13 months from preorder to fulfillment. The script is finished, and some pages have been completed in preparation for the preorder campaign. The book should be finished in seven months. Our plan is to release the digital copies as chapters, giving our supporters the book as it’s completed. We’re budgeting another 5-6 months for prepress, printing, and shipping. The complete digital copy will be released as soon as it’s ready (before printing).

A few short answers to how this works.
