I started to work in this many moons ago for Crystal Fractal Comics, but as the economy for comics wasn't great, we had to pause.
The story I was crafting would see the traditional new superhero tale get hit by a bazooka!
Saving the day will have a whole new meaning.
Duo identities will be rewritten.
There's more, but like I mentioned, we hit the pause button.
Here's the thing, you get to hit the play button! All you have to do is head over to indiegogo.com/redorik and pre-order a copy. You can also help by sharing the link on Facebook and Twitter.

We've reached half of our goal with ten days left, but what does it all mean?
It means that the all-ages Canadian superhero anthology is being made. Let me say that again.
True Patriot IS being made.
So with that settled, what will reaching our goal achieve? What will your pre-orders actually do?
For one it will ensure all the perks getting done, which goes without saying are all great. Some production stuff that it will really help out with, and whatever is left will be given to all the creators for all the work they are putting into this passionate book.
There's ten days left for you to pre-order your copy (or one for family, friends or strangers). your continued support has been invaluable to us. Thanks again and keep on posting, telling people about and sharing info on True Patriot.

I'm working with Adrian Alphona on a whimsical Ogopogo story and because we love you all, here's sketches he did up as we were talking about story ideas. We are having a blast working on this and hope that with all of your support that you get to see it, as well as the other Canadian creator's newly created Canadian superheroes.

So what's up next for me? I have an all ages story in Secret Identities Vol 2. That's right! An all ages story (bet you didn't see that coming!). It's something I wanted to do for ages and this was the perfect place for it. Really can't wait for everyone to see this!
I'm working with the awesome talented Jamie Noguchi. Check out his wicked art here! Jamie nailed how I envisioned this and took it to another level! It's seldom that you get to work with someone who just taps into you thoughts and explodes a page after page full of beautiful art. You have no idea how much it's killing me not being able to show it at this point.
Please read about the talented writers and artists that are gonna be in this all Asian American anthology here. I'll see if I can give some teasers along the way to its fall publishing date.
