Last Minute Incentive! Can We Make It?!
4 months ago – Wed, Feb 22, 2023 at 02:52:31 PM

GUYS!! Thank you all so much. We're 48 hours left and down to the wire, and our awesome cover colorist HEDWIN ZALDIVAR has added an incentive to the pile! If we can manage to hit the goal, ALL BACKERS will receive the refined version of this beautiful color sketch he sent us of Kira! Digital backers will receive a digital version and print backers will receive a comic-size print. CAN WE DO IT?! 

We'd really love to send you guys Power Broker issues 3 and 4, so tell your friends or bump your pledge to a physical tier and let's DO THIS!!!! 

And, as usual, some PROJECTS WE LOVE: 

Drumsticks of Doom #1-3 by our good friend Jon Westhoff is running now! BACK IT HERE AND HELP HIM HIT THE GOAL!

Lana LOVES music. She has played in bands all through high school and now, in college, she still plays in her ex’s fledgling metal band. She's finishing up the best practice yet when they are drawn into a spiritual battle to keep metal on the top of the charts. Issue 3 has Lana and Jimmy on the run with their newfound mysterious stranger.  Why was he at the warehouse? Is he friend or foe? More Werewolves, More Cults and... More METAL!

Then, to follow our theme of badass ladies, with the world falling apart around us, and the rise of AI, we have PROJECT SHADOWS! BACK IT HERE NOW!

The government developed an AI to help them point out potential threats. Two government workers decide to recruit those threats to work for them. What can possibly go wrong? With an array of awesome covers and a BUFF AS HELL female protagonist...Project Shadows should serve as excellent 2023 reading. :D 

10 Days to Go! Still Work to be Done!!
4 months ago – Wed, Feb 15, 2023 at 02:05:13 AM

Thank you so much for our journey thus far! Our progress is a little slower than planned at this point, so we greatly appreciate any shares or shoutouts of the campaign you guys can squeeze in! Is there any future Power Broker merch or other items you'd like to see?! Custom printed cheese?!

In this update, we mostly aim to bolster morale and reach for the stars, but we also want to pay things forward to some other amazing creators who we love: 

JOSEPH DUIS (Heresy Studios) has just a few days left for his project: SUPERHERESIES! BACK IT HERE RIGHT NOW! Joining the MAKE 100 group of projects for the month, Superheresies contains 3 stories reimagining 1940s heroes as BIPOC & LGBT facing war, cults, and Muhammad Ali. Cover by Mike DeCarlo (BATMAN, THOR)! 

In many ways, comic books of the Golden Age in the 1930s and 1940s were groundbreaking, giving us tons of new characters in a brand-new genre: superheroes. However, in those days comics weren't very diverse, so superheroes tended to be white, straight, and mostly male. But what if they hadn't been? In SUPERHERESIES SHOWCASE 1971 we reimagine public domain comic book heroes from the 1940s as nonwhite, women, and/or LGBTQ+ and we further imagine what their lives would have been like if they had aged in real time for decades after their debuts.

Next, we showcase SHARK OF WAR by Ben Lacy! BACK IT HERE RIGHT NOW! How can we resist the pull of a protagonist that's a CYBORG SHARK?! We can't! 

With fantastic interior artwork and really unique rewards on the campaign (shark teeth, plushies, and awesome covers, for one!) this series is a must-have. SIX ISSUES ON HAND, TOO!!!

Hey all!! Thank you so much for backing, and we're over halfway there in about 24 hours!! AMAZING!! At popular demand I've added in a "#3 and #4 digital tier" for those who have asked for it, and we apologize for the confusion with the digital books. We also added in a "just new holofoils" for those of you who already had the #1 and #2 holos!! AND -- All four issues are entirely done and ready to go to print, for those who asked about that. 

Let's go!!!!!
