Featuring The Best In Comics
Jimmy Palmiotti has had a great career working in comics and he has just launched a kickstarter to fund his new project Creator Owned Heroes…
My name is Jimmy Palmiotti and I have been creating comic books since the late 80’s as a writer, artist, inker, and editor, and working on creator owned comics of my own since I started with EVENT COMICS back in 1994. I have won some awards along the way as well as successfully crowd sourced over 12 campaigns and have delivered each and every one of them in a timely and satisfying fashion. This campaign features ADULTS ONLY content , so you know in advance.
My current self-publishing venture is Paperfilms, a company founded back in 2001. I am here offering a DIGITAL COLLECTION of a series of books we published through Image that have never been collected before. CREATOR OWNED HEROES is an experiment Justin Gray, Steve Niles, and myself launched and deliver monthly a few years back. COH got to issue 8 before we had to shut the project down for lack of orders and terrible distribution. We were losing money at an incredible speed and learned a few lessons along the way. To this day, I get people that never heard of the series and we figured maybe this might be a good time to do an actual collection of all the cool material we have. What we were trying to do monthly with COH was bring a mixture of Comics, interviews, cosplay and how to material to the comic book lovers out there for a cheap price. Sort of like Wizard magazine with sequential storytelling included by some of the greatest talents in the industry. We published 8 oversized books and now for the first time we are DIGITALLY COLLECTING all 8 issues into one huge DIGITAL 386 page read for an insanely reasonable price!
Below are a bunch of pages from some of the books. Just a sample to get across what we were about and some of the talent involved.
This book features work and interviews by NEIL GAIMAN-DARWYN COOKE- PAUL POPE-STEVE NILES-BERNIE WRIGHTSON- ROBERT KIRKMAN-JUSTIN GRAY-THE HERNANDEZ BROTHERS-AMANDA CONNER-BRYAN LEE O’MALLY- DAVE JOHNSON-SCOTT MORSE-MARK WAID-DAN PANOSIAN and so many more!
I do want to make it clear this is for a digital edition, not a paper book
We are also offering some levels that gets you the digital Trade of Creator Owned Heroes and an autographed single copy of one of the Creator Owned Heroes books. This book will be signed by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. These levels will only be available in the United States since we are limited with how many we have.
We ask that even if you do not back the project you consider posting the links on social media for us. We really appreciate the help! Thank you so much!
Risks and challenges
The great thing about this is we will have the digital book sent to you the day after this Kickstarter ends! For those that pledged for the actual books, they will be shipped within the month of feb.
