Alt★Hero #1: Crackdown is now available on Amazon for Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.
When Captain Europa offers Janelle Jeanneret a recruitment deal she can’t refuse, the French model doesn’t hesitate to sign up with the Global Justice Initiative. After all, they’re providing her with a killer apartment in Brussels, a new outfit, and even a flashy new name, in addition to paying her an awful lot of money… and it’s even tax-free! But is there a catch? And how is a group of superhumans based in Europe going to go about establishing global justice anyway?
Alt★Hero is the first in an exciting new line of superhero comics from Arkhaven Comics.
We anticipate getting the French, Italian, and German digital editions out next week, after they go out to the backers. The Comixology edition should be the week following, with the limited edition gold logo print editions being published the week after that. The foreign language editions will also be published in print.
From the early reviews:
- The only thing missing is a Charles Atlas-style ad in the back. Can’t wait until Issue 2.
- It feels like GI Joe meets the Justice League. It was an enjoyable read that simply left me wanting to read the next installment. The character dialogue was top notch.
- It has a sharp, crisp story that sets the stage for some future stories, provides some good background on some characters, and establishes this series as one to keep an eye on.
- The world is a big place, and you need to actually understand other cultures and how geopolitics works in order to portray that diversity properly. Which explains why modern comics writers are usually so hopelessly out of their depth. This team isn’t.
- This is a fantastic start… It very much reminded me of the old Iron Man and Thor comics of the 80s I loved as a kid.
- Unique characters with incredible powers but very human attitudes in an interesting and unexpected story. And surprisingly funny!
- Great Heroes, great story, great value. This already returned my basic backing amount.
