Press Release- Mega Maiden: Welcome Home! #1

Press Release- Mega Maiden: Welcome Home! #1 published on No Comments on Press Release- Mega Maiden: Welcome Home! #1

Hey, there! My name is Andeh Pinkard, I’ve been writing and drawing webcomics for twenty years. I’ve been drawing and creating my own comic universes since I was in high school. I’ve dabbled in all sorts of stories from slice-of-life to harem action-comedy manga, and crazy over-the-top urban scifi-fantasy. Through it all I always had this unending want to sink my teeth into the superhero genre. If I was going to do this, it was going to be on my terms. Packed to the brim with all the things I loved, and that grew to be my comic series “Mega Maiden”.

So, just what is “Mega Maiden” you ask? Well, it’s a love letter to all the things that sparked my love for comics and manga. Yes, it’s a superhero comic, but it’s so much more! MM was heavily influenced by all the things I love, everything from 80’s-90’s buddy-cop anime like the Dirty Pair, to the fun teenage superhero adventures of comics of the late ’90s like Gen 13 and Young Justice and of course the absurdity of Ben Edlund’s The Tick, all sprinkled with a little of my punk/pop-punk aesthetic that I tend to do with all my work. Think 2 Broke Girls with superpowers and pop-punk vibes.

The story follows the continuing misadventures of Isis Cook and Delaney “Dee Dee” Bell, who as Mega Maiden and the Chop Chop Princess try their hand at fighting crime by punching super crim faces one at a time! Unfortunately for the girls, most of the big-league superheroes are total douchebags! 

This 1st out of 7 issues starts with the girls returning home after spending the last year helping out some out-of-town friends. Before the girls can even settle in back home in The City, they are interrupted when a new dangerous villain from Mega’s past, calling herself Nega Maiden, starts to cause destruction to get Mega Maiden out in the open. Will Mega be able to figure out who she is, and what she wants before she destroys The City?

I have chosen to use Kickstarter’s crowd funding site to get this book funded and into people’s hands. Crowdfunding is a great way to help creators reach their goals while also helping them connect with potential readers and fans. I have over three more weeks until the campaign ends. We can continue building a bigger audience and create more fun stories for readers to enjoy. There’s something special about Mega Maiden, you can tell that every page is written and drawn with love and hot-blooded energy.

I want you to join the mega-fam and join in on the fun! Kickstarter Campaign
