The Hero: Blue Beetle by Snyder and Ditko
One of Ditko’s greatest characters, The Hero, returns in his own comic book. Plus the surprising story of the Blue Beetle.
Who or what is a hero? What makes a hero? In this comics anthology we feature a number of heroes, large and small, familiar and unfamiliar.
We open this special edition by addressing the matter of The Mystery of the Blue Beetle? Who and what is the Blue Beetle? Who created the Beetle?Where has he been? What exactly do Snyder and Ditko have to do with this unique character?
Here in this book is one of the most unusual features we have ever published, an illustrated story of a name that has been known, forgotten, revised and revived over 70 years.
Risks and challenges
This is our 19th Kickstarter campaign. All previous efforts have been successful.
The contents of this comic book consists of a selection of unique features starring heroes. The work is complete. The pages are all written and illustrated. The covers are finished. The material has been edited and gone over many times.
The book has been proofread and is ready to go but for the editorial pages which are now in first draft. As each of you makes a Pledge, we will check the spelling of each name, add it to the Honor Roll of those who support our new work and are anxious to receive, read and look through the material.
Our challenge in this campaign will be to find and interest a number of Backers who will support this unusual title that does not feature a star attraction known around the country and world such as those to be found at Archie, DC, Marvel and other companies.
We believe we will find those Backers through word-of-mouth that has already begun and in the development and updates of this campaign.
We will deliver the book as promised, as we have done in each of our many previous campaigns.
This is our 19th campaign. We have succeeded with each one and promptly given our work to the printer with whom we have been working for many years. The turn-around is quick, about one month and a half, and then we begin filling your orders.
We have scheduled all of these events so that we can promise to deliver on or ahead of schedule.
