Zero's Heroes Volume One

We've nearly got the first Zero's Heroes book ready to go.  Check out the amazing cover art drawn and colored by regular Zero's Heroes artists Chris McJunkin and Sara Rude.

This book is going to be 180 pages and will contain the first seven chapters of Zero's Heroes.  But we're not stopping there.  There will also be seven exclusive two page stories, each one featuring one of the Zero's Heroes characters, as well as some design and original sketch work by Sergio Apodaca (the artist for the first seven chapters of Zero's Heroes).  These bonus comics are drawn by different artists, some of them I've worked with before and others are new to the book.  Here are a few examples of the pages.  This first page is about the titular character Zero, and is drawn and colored by the amazing Kevin Bandt.  This page blew my socks off when he sent it to me.  I can't wait to see it in print.

This next page is drawn by the ever stalwart Joie Simmons.  Joie drew the majority of Chapter 08 of Zero's Heroes and I try to work with him whenever I get the chance.  Here we see Quickspeed having a casual conversation with his gender reversed doppelganger last seen in Chapter 05.

It's been a long time coming, but we finally have all the art finished for the book.  So, what's next?  Well, we're going to try and go down the Kickstarter route to pay for the printing costs.  We're going to take a few weeks to put together a solid bundle of goodies to give away including T-shirts, prints, stickers, buttons, and quite possibly some original art.

I'll be making updates to this blog about future Zero's Heroes books, as well as anything else we're doing over at New Haven Comics.
