Unlikely Heroes Studios is the mother of all kickstarter success stories. Their comic, Super!, is blowing people's minds and raising the standards for superhero comics, one issue at a time!
Unlikely Heroes Studios was created in 2011 by artist Zack Dolan and writer Justin Piatt. Together they had one goal: to tell a great story.
Together they outlined the entire series of Super! from start to finished, sketched out hundreds of characters, created color models, and then diligently revised that series outline until it reflected a quality superhero story that was worthy of being put to print.
In August 2012, they posted a KickStarter campaign to speed production of their first issue. The response was incredible: the project was fully funded within a week and finished with over 200% funding! Production times for the mammoth 52 page first issue of Super! doubled, and the Unlikely Heroes began to focus on publication.In 2013, it was announced that Unlikely Heroes Studios would be entering into the comics market as a publisher. Super! issue 1 hit stores and Comixology on September 25th, and they’ve solicited comics throughout the rest of 2013 to release the last Wednesday of each month.
