Indie comics publisher Altruist Comics has details a brand new superhero who is set to return comics back to the heyday of the Silver Age. Bullet #1harks back to the days of comics past whilst still acknowledging the sensibilities of modern day life.
“As someone who loves characters like the Flash and Sonic the Hedgehog, it’s been a lot of fun working with Randy, Kath, and Lucas to bring a speedster in the classic superhero style to life” says co-writer/co-creator Jordan Alsaqa.
“When Randy first contacted me, I was immediately interested in emulating Silver Age hijinks and heroics, and the overall arc of this one-shot promised a more intriguing story than just a simple throwback tale. I think the finished comic provides all the humor, action, and heart you could want from an indie superhero title. And while we hope to explore this universe further, it’s wonderful having a self-contained, complete adventure to offer new readers.”
How would a super speedster react to a neverending cascade of dramatic scenarios that comes their way? Fans will find out when Bullet #1 drops on Kickstarter on the 16th August, running for 30 days. Click here to support the book.
“For a story about a super speedster, Bullet can’t come fast enough. The Kickstarter will be launching soon and I’m so excited to finally hold this book in my hands! I know that readers are going to love it as much as I do” says Altruist founder Randy Stone.
“I had so much fun developing the story with Jordan Alsaqa. Dale, Jo, and the rest of the cast had lived in my head for so long, it was great to see them finally come to life, especially with the personalities that Kath Lobo drew them with. I’d be shocked if anyone doesn’t fall in love with our leads! It was also a pleasure having Lucas Gattoni on board for another project and I look forward to our next collaboration.“
