Heroes Unleashed, Unleashed

Thank you to everyone who backed the first phase of the Heroes Unleashed kickstarter. It fully funded in just 11 hours, and now we have three more weeks to push for as many of those Bonus Rewards as possible before time expires.

The project is already more than %150 funded thanks to your kind and generous support.

If you’re still sitting on the fence, let me draw your attention to this recent interview that Jim Fear conducted with the married maestro’s that are conducting this little symphony of superheroics.  Not only does this demonstrate the Newquist’s deep knowledge and understanding of the superhero genre, it sheds a little more light onto the breath and scope of this massive project.  I’m hip deep in Heroes Unleashed, and even I didn’t realize how sprawling and epic this collection of stories will end up before it’s all said and done.

And from the looks of things, it will have the same sort of modularity that all the best big projects have.  That is to say, you should be able to dip your toes into whichever end of the superhero pool you like best, and still come away satisfied.  If you like mysterious relationship drama, Morgon has you covered.  If you like blazing guns and furious action, Kai Wai Cheah has your back.  If you like a steady delve into conspiraciana, I’m here for you.  Mix and match, pick and choose, and enjoy the full Prime buffet of options.

I’ll also point out that unlocking the $1500 level means that all backers will receive the first chapter of my own entrée, The Phoenix Ring, which I’m convinced will leave you wanting a whole lot more.
