WE MADE IT!
Thanks to everyone who supported the Liberty Girl on Kickstarter, we made our goal with room to spare. Liberty Girl #5 has been lettered, and sent to our colorist. With any luck, we'll have copies in hand in time to send out to subscribers and supporters well before July 4. That's our target date. Keep your fingers crossed.

ABOVE AND BEYOND
Here's a shout-out to Nick Butch! Not only did Nick support our Liberty Girl Kickstarter, he actually drew a Liberty Girl pic himself! And offered it on his Facebook page as an extra bonus reward to encourage his followers to support the Liberty Girl, too. Take a look! It's here: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2903124853128550&id=130555547052175

ANOTHER NEW PROJECT!
There's a new Reiki Warriors project page. This is the book-length conclusion to the "Rings for a Demon" storyline that's been running as a series of back-up features in issues of Murcielaga She-Bat. The ninth and final chapter of this classic adventure is scheduled to appear for the first time in color in Murcielaga She-Bat #19. Any help you can give us will be much appreciated.

G-GIRL! FLARE! LIBERTY GIRL!
We just opened up a new project page for Champions Annual #3. This issue will feature a book-length, 40-page adventure starring Flare, the Liberty Girl, and the Sensational G-Girl. There's a long way to go on this project, but Beniamino Delvecchio has drawn a few pages.

LIBERTY GIRL #5 IS COMING!
The long-awaited 5th issue of LIBERTY GIRL will feature a brand-new booklength Liberty Girl story, "The Sleeping Giant," by Richard Martin and Henry Martinez, with a beautiful cover by Mark Sparacio, concluding the adventure that began in issue #4, featuring a special guest appearance by the Huntsman. Richard's script and Henry's artwork are complete. But we still have lettering and coloring to do. So we're looking to you to help us bring this project to fruition. And we've launched a Kickstarter for that very purpose. Click on the "Kickstarter" link above, and check out the great rewards that are available to you in exchange for your support on this project. Every dollar you contribute will bring us that much closer to getting this issue into print.

SUCCESS!
Thanks to all our fans who pledged their support, our Murcielaga She-Bat Kickstarter was a rousing success that also gave us a big jump-start on the concluding chapter of the Reiki/Champions crossover. The Kickstarter is over, but you can still pledge your support for this and other upcoming Heroic Publishing projects by visiting one of our various project pages.

ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT ON THE SHE-BAT KICKSTARTER
If you haven't yet backed our She-Bat Reiki/Champions Kickstarter, now's the time to do it. There are some great rewards available. Just click on the Kickstarter link above, and check it out.

I just had a brush with the very real consequences of this nonsense. Most of you may not know that for the past few years I've been driving Lyft in order to keep my head above water. Of late, there have been fewer drivers on the road, causing much longer drives to get to passengers. This morning, I had a call to pick up a passenger from a hospital emergency room. It took a long time to get to him. But I did get him home. He needed his walker, and asked me to go to the door and get it from his wife. She didn't respond. So I went back to the car, got him out, and helped him to the door myself. When he opened the door, we found his wife dead on the floor. I called the paramedics and waited, because I damn well didn't want to leave him there alone. The paramedics said she hadn't been dead very long. It's quite possible, had this bulls**t not been going on, had there been a driver out there even a little bit closer to the hospital, that the woman's life could have been saved.

This is the cost of the idiocy. Lives are being lost, livelihoods are being destroyed.

And all of it, ultimately, for nothing except stroking the egos of the legacy media, authoritarian politicians, and irresponsible members of the medical profession.

This man will probably not last too much longer either. He's just lost his life partner. And seeing his emotional devastation broke my heart.

I have no issue with the fact that death comes to us all in the end. I take issue with the fact that people should--and in fact do--know better have been encouraging irrational fear and "social distancing" that causes more pain and suffering than this disease could ever have inflicted.

HAVE YOU LOOKED AT OUR WEBCOMICS?
If you haven't checked out our webcomics, please do. We try to post on a weekly basis a page of story from classic adventures of Flare, the League of Champions, Murcielaga She-Bat, the Sensational G-Girl, and the WitchGirls Inc. It's a nice way to catch up on some of the history of the Heroic Publishing comic book titles.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Shall we be clear on what happened? Under color of a medical crisis, governments at all levels issued hysterical public policy directives that were at best marginally effective, and that violated the first principles of the American republic, causing irreparable harm to the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people. This can never happen again.

SOMETHING'S COMING FOR CHRISTMAS
Don't want to say much about it yet, but Terrance Griep and Adam Walters have started working on something we're all really excited about. It does involve teddy bears and Santa's little elfin granddaughter, Chrissie Claus. And with any luck, we'll have it ready to go in plenty of time for Christmas.

A COUPLE OF THINGS
Good news is we're back on track for the Reiki/Champions Kickstarter. Thanks again to everyone who's supported that project. But we don't have much of a margin yet, so we are still looking for more support. The other thing is that the latest issue of The Huntsman is going to be today's Deal of the Day on DriveThruComics.com. It's the digital edition, and starting around 8:00 am Pacific time, it's going to be on sale at 50% off the regular price!

28 March 2020
SIGH . . .
Hate to have to walk this back, but one of our big backers for the Reiki/Champions project walked back his contribution, which drops us back below our Kickstarter goal. So we definitely still need your help. There are a lot of great rewards available, so please visit the Murcielaga She-Bat Reiki/Champions project page on Kickstarter and make your contribution today.

28 March 2020
YOU DID IT!
Thanks to everyone who backed the She-Bat's Reiki/Champions crossover, we've already achieved our Kickstarter goal, with four weeks to spare! But we're not done yet. The next challenge is to see how big a chunk we can take out of what's needed to finish production on the concluding chapter of the crossover, which is currently scheduled to appear as a book-length 27-page adventure in League of Champions #18. So don't stop spreading the word on social media. We can still use all the help you can give us.

TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT ADAM WALTERS IS UP TO!
One of our favorite artists, J. Adam Walters, is publishing his own comic book on Lulu, in the same pinup/splash page format that was featured in WitchGirls Inc #13. Until yesterday, Clarissa Edmunds was a forty-four year-old man named Harold Jenkins. But now, thanks to some magic, he's a cute teen-age girl. The story of Clarissa is going to be serialized in 24 page "issues", posted every 2-3 months. Volume 1 can be found here:
http://www.lulu.com/shop/tebra/clarissa-edmunds-vol-1/ebook/product-24199355.html
And for more direct support on an ongoing basis, you can help him out via Patreon.

Give it a look. Adam is an extremely talented comic book creator who deserves your support.

PART TWO OF THE CHAMPIONS/REIKI CROSSOVER IS COMING!
It started in League of Champions #17. And now, at last, it's about to continue in Murcielaga She-Bat #18! It's a crossover adventure that brings the LEAGUE OF CHAMPION together with Daerick Gross Sr.'s REIKI WARRIORS, in a story by Daerick Gross Sr., Dennis Mallonee, and Henry Martinez. The story, artwork, and lettering for this issue are complete, but there's still some coloring to do. That's why your help is needed to bring this project to fruition. So click on over to the Champions/Reiki project page and add your contribution to the effort today.

7 November 2019

THE HEROIC PUBLISHING
MISSION STATEMENT

Heroic Publishing is all about
what it takes to be a hero.

Too often in recent years, other comic book companies have not been presenting superheroes as heroes. Too often, their characters have been treated merely as interesting people with peculiar abilities. While there may be some merit in taking that approach, it's not what Heroic Publishing is all about.

For all their flaws, the characters we focus on at Heroic Publishing are (usually) trying their best to live up to the heroic ideal. They may fail, they may suffer setbacks, there may be personal issues that deflect them from the goal. But they try. They strive. And when they succeed, there are wonders to behold.

Our goal at Heroic Publishing is to present entertaining adventures featuring characters who truly are superheroes.
