The image above is fan art contributed by a freelance pro who is supporting the project. If you’d like to see more of the real story, we’ve added another draft page at the Alt★Hero campaign, which has reached its penultimate day. And for those who may happen to be under the mistaken impression that we are laying it on a bit too heavily, please note that the threats being uttered by Captain Europa there are a direct quote of the Metropolitan Police in London via their twitter account.
The big news promised earlier is this: Chuck Dixon has agreed to write an Alt★Hero novel! Entitled Vendetta, the novel will be set in the city of Avalon and published by Castalia House in ebook, paperback, and audiobook formats. We’ve added two rewards so you can buy it today in either ebook or paperback format (as part of the trilogy of novels that have been announced) by backing the campaign. Vendetta is a new character he has created who appears in Avalon volume I and will be the protagonist of his first novel.
Also, due to more than a dozen requests for them, we have added two conditional Rewards. Chuck Dixon and Castalia House will commit to producing volumes IV, V, and VI of the Alt★Hero series Avalon if the campaign reaches the $185k mark, and we will provide the digital editions of those three volumes to all the appropriate backer levels. $23k in two days is a little ambitious, but the general consensus seems to be that it is reachable if people have the option of backing the 4th omnibus print editions.

By the way, one important aspect of supporting the #4 options is that this will create the material for SIX additional small comics, bringing the total we’ll be releasing to 24. That’s the equivalent of a full year of two comics series, which should help us considerably in kicking down the door of the retail channel.
With less than 39 hours left, Alt★Hero has $19k to go to the final stretch goal. Get in the game! Support the Alt★Hero campaign before it’s over.
