Jake Roth is back in an all-new four-issue mini-series filled with twists, turns and some of the craziest action you’ll ever see. In THE F1RST HERO: WEDNESDAY’S CHILD, Jake must face his strangest opponent yet: an 8-year old girl with the power to control human minds. And as deadly as that sounds, it’s the little girl’s mother that’s the really dangerous one! And in the meantime, Col. Kirkson and the Extrahuman Task Force are hot on all their heels!

Volume 3 is written by Anthony Ruttgaizer with art by Marco Renna and letters/colours by Fred C Stresing. The F1rst Hero is published by Action Lab Comics.

Rewards for the campaign include copies of entire series (including Volumes 1 and 2) in both print and digital form, limited special editions of the first issue and chances to have Anthony draw you as an extrahuman villain!
