Unlikely Heroes Studios Returns to Its Roots to Resurrect Super! for Issue 7
Indie comics powerhouse Unlikely Heroes Studios has earned a devoted readership with their scalpel-witted, two-fisted takedown of mainstream tights-’n-capes heroes in the long-running series Super! This year, comics fans have seen a shift in tone from the publishers’ early work. After January’s release of The Surgeon, the team has been focused on that bleak postapocalyptic Western epic for two chapters.
Now it’s finally time for writer/artist Zack Dolan and editor/publisher Laurie Foster to get back to business and deal with the cliffhanger ending of Super! #6. Oh, it’s zombie apocalypse, all right, and now Max Archer’s team of boozy, sweary, and dysfunctional D-listers have to save their own necks and maybe ours, too.
“We’re a small studio, and we’ve been juggling production schedules, trying to give both of our series equal attention,” says Foster, “But no more multitasking; we’re jumping back in head-first and nipples-deep. Our fans have been patient long enough, and now is the time to bring Super! back from the grave – right before Halloween.
“It is too indescribably good to finally be able to work on Super! again,” Says Dolan. “It’s an amazing feeling to be able to resurrect these delightful, ridiculous characters, and to be able to do this for a living! We can’t wait to show you all the twisted, ghoulish lunacy we’ve cooked up in this monster-ific return to Cosmopolis. The forecast is grizzly with a chance of brain-eating.“
Unlikely Heroes launched a Kickstarter to fund print costs for Super! #7 on October 8th, 2018. Known for their nerdgasmic premiums, the team is eager to show fans what they’ve got once again; check it all out at www.uhstudios.com/kickstarter !
