The Book

Cover by Jay StephensTrue Patriot is a comic book anthology featuring Canadian superheroes written and drawn by some of your favourite Canadian comic book creators. Most of us working on this project grew up reading Alpha Flight, Captain Canuck, or Wolverine comics and we’ve always thought that there should be more Canadian superheroes out there. So, we're putting together a 100-page, full-colour anthology for your reading pleasure (and ours)!

"We" being: 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 Ask

We're hoping to raise $20,000 to pay for the cost of printing and shipping the books and perks, cover Indiegogo/PayPal/bank fees, as well as pay the creators a small honorarium. Should we manage to raise more money, then we'll pay the creators more for their hard work and artistry. Additional funds may also go towards a larger print run, which will depend on the demand.

 

The Perks

Val & Hal by Tom FowlerTo raise this money, we're offering a straight-foward "just give me the comic" pre-order (PDF and hardcover book*) as well as cool "experience" perks involving some of our creators. Check out the perk sidebar for details.

Please note: Book Pre-Orders include postage, so please select the appropriate one for your location (Canada, US, or International).

Also, please note: the $65 Sketch + Book Pre-Order is only for shipping within Canada. For the US, please add $5. International, please add $10 for shipping.

But wait, there's more! Since we're only allowed to offer 12 perks at a time, there are a few additional perks we have waiting in the wings. As some of the current perks are claimed, we'll add the new ones.

 

The Gallery

Please keep an eye on our gallery (see tab at the top of the page) to meet the cast of True Patriot and see concept sketches, layouts, and other behind-the-scenes material. Go look now, we've already posted some stuff! Also look for updates and new art added throughout this campaign.
