Canadian Creators Unite for TRUE PATRIOT and Need Your Help

Find out how you can help Canadian creators and hero make this anthology happen.

The great thing about comics these days is it's become easier, in some ways, to make your own comic. With sites like Kickstarter and Indigogo, all you need is the right amount of backing to make your dreams come true. Obviously that is sometimes easier said than done.

While there are numerous different comic projects trying to be funded, one that caught my eye was TRUE PATRIOT, "an anthology of Canadian comic book adventures by some of your favourite Canadian comic book creators." (Notice I even left in the 'ou' in 'favourite').

Canadians and comic books go together more than many might realize. Fan Expo is a yearly comic convention in Toronto and has been growing each year. We often poke fun at our neighbors to the North by insinuating they all say "eh" at the end of each sentence and say words like "about" in a different way. The truth is, there is a lot of talent up there.

Check out this video description on the project to find out who's involved:

The creator involved include Adrian Alphona (Runaways), Andy B. (Kill Shakespeare), J. Bone (Super Friends), Jack Briglio (Scooby Doo), Scott Chantler (Two Generals), Tom Fowler (Hulk: Season One), Agnes Garbowska (Girl Comics), Faith Erin Hicks (Adventure Time), Tim Levins (Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes), Ramon Perez (A Tale of Sand), Ron Salas (28 Days Later), Jay Stephens (Secret Saturdays), J. Torres (Teen Titans Go), Howard Wong (After the Cape).

The important thing is, there's less than a week to go for the funding to happen. Check out the rest of the information HERE to find out about perks, including how you could pre-order it which goes towards the funding as well.

Canada has some great creators, especially in the art department. Yannick Paquette, Becky Cloonan, David Finch and Darwyn Cooke just to name a few. Might be interesting to see a whole anthology including some of our best writers and artist

The more comics the better, especially some non-American ones

This looks awesome to me...almost a Justice Society kinda feel to it. And of course, with adorable Agnes Garbowska as part of it I'm definitely interested!

I'm going to support this. I'm supporting a lot of projects on Kickstarter so I may as well do the same on Indigogo.

It might be interesting...I too am trying to make a Canadian superhero for my own projects....despite the fact that I am an American...

@AMP - Seeker of Lost Knowledge: I would like to hear about this idea.

Yes she is awesome and I am definitely investing into this. Im surprised Francis Manapul did not want to get involved with this. Also would loved to have seen Ty Templeton get involved.

@Jonny_Anonymous: I agree, I miss the days of Excalibur.

@the creator: Good job, I have not been doing much on kick starter at all except with things that have been based on home grown artists and writers.

I wonder where I can grab a copy of this book? Amazon perhaps?

Why not pre-order it through one of the perks offered? They include shipping costs.
