My coworker and pal Kevin Powers is really going in hard on this whole Kickstarter thing in support of his creator-owned graphic novel Patriot-1 — a superheroic military thriller that’s been his passion project for the last several years. Although much of our attention is presently drawn to the “Big Two” and their associated TV and movie franchises, it’s becoming more important for us as comic book fans to support the independent comic book scene. After all, it’s where tomorrow’s heroes are born.
Patriot-1 marks the first time I’ve ever contributed to a Kickstarter campaign for a comic book project, but it’s definitely something I can see myself doing more often based on the sheer number of incentives offered by savvy creators. By contributing to Patriot-1’s campaign, you can get your hands on character keys, prints, commissions by artist Dexter Wee and even a limited-edition vinyl figure of the title character. That’s a lot of win.
