THE F1RST HERO is my passion project, my labour of love, and bringing the book from idea to print is the dream of a 12 year old kid come true. If you’ve read the series, I hope that passion for creating comics jumps off the page for you. If you’re new to TFH, I hope you will give the book a try and join in the excitement. In fact, if you’ve never read any of the series before, check out Volume 1, Issue 1 FOR FREE right now online at


THE F1RST HERO is a 100% creator-owned series. This Kickstarter campaign is being conducted to help raise funds for the production of the series. After Kickstarter’s fess and the cost of reward fulfillment, all the money raised will go towards those costs. Marco, Fred and I have been working incredibly hard to bring you the truly best book that we can and every dollar that you pledge here will help us reach the finish line. With that in mind, we would like to THANK YOU in advance for your support.

The risks for backing this project are incredibly minimal. Marco has completed the art for all four issues of the story and Fred has already completed colouring and lettering for Issues 1 and 2. Fred is currently colouring Issues 3. Issue 1 was published on June 15th and Issue 2 has gone to the printers. The team at Action Lab have been great, once again, at helping us continue bringing the story of THE F1RST HERO to readers like you and the first wave of rewards will go in the mail almost immediately upon completion of the campaign. Trade paperback collections will be mailed out in late-October to complete the reward fulfillment cycle.

Reward packages for this Kickstarter include:
DIGITAL COPIES of the first issue or the entire 4-issue story arc
PRINT COPIES of the Special Convention Edition of Issue 1
TRADE PAPERBACK collections of the complete 4-issue story arc
COMMISSION SKETCHES and special SKETCH COVERS drawn by series creator Anthony Ruttgaizer
TRADE PAPERBACK collections of Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the series
SCRIPT CONSULTATION SESSIONS with Anthony to help turn YOUR ideas into comic book scripts
SPEAKING ROLES as a character in an issue of the series!

Even if you can’t contribute, you can help make this project successful by telling your friends and neighbours about it.
