Cosmic Blasts Off with Indiegogo Fundraiser


Cosmic is due from Alterna Comics. At least, the publisher wants the book written by Sal Brucculeri, illustrated by Chandra Kelly and colored by Victoria Pittman to be due. It's slated to debut on Alterna Comics' digital line in January 2014, but it needs a little help. That help is in the form of an Indiegogo campaign running until September 30.

Landon Debson is your typical college graduate in today’s world, he has plenty of student loan debt but no job to show for it. Wasting away his education on the unemployment line, Landon finally receives a call-back from one of the hundreds of interviews he went on and is offered his very first job. Filled with excitement to start his new career as a S.T.A.R. at U.P.A., Landon doesn't realize that he has signed a contract to work for the Universal Protection Agency as a Soldier Through All Radars as the superhero “COSMIC”. The first story arc is a year later, Cosmic is faced with the task of protecting the infants of Earth from the alien pirate “Captain Priam” and his crew of baby-snatchers.

The ultimate goal of this campaign is to fund issues one and two with a stretch goal for additional issues. A $25 contribution gets you the indiegogo Edition TPB and the PDFs of issues 1 and 2, but for each stretch goal we reach, anybody who pledged $5 or more will receive the PDF of each issue added! All backers who contribute $30 or more will receive a signed issue of each additional issue added through stretch goals! Even if you can't contribute, just spreading the word about the campaign and comic book would be fantastic and extremely appreciated.

Full press release below.
