The "True Patriot" Campaign is Underway!

You can click the banner above to be taken to the campaign itself, but here are the basics:
True Patriot is a comic book anthology featuring Canadian superheroes written and drawn by some of your favourite Canadian comic book creators. Most of us working on this project grew up reading Alpha Flight, Captain Canuck, or Wolverine comics and we’ve always thought that there should be more Canadian superheroes out there. So, we're putting together a 100-page, full-colour anthology for your reading pleasure (and ours)!

"We" being: 
Adrian Alpona (Runaways), Andy B. (Kill Shakespeare), J. Bone (Super Friends), Jack Briglio (Scooby Doo), Scott Chantler (Two Generals), Tom Fowler (Hulk: Season One), Agnes Garbowska (Girl Comics), Faith Erin Hicks (Adventure Time), Tim Levins (Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes), Ramon Perez (A Tale of Sand), Ron Salas (28 Days Later), Jay Stephens (Secret Saturdays), J. Torres (Teen Titans Go), Howard Wong (After the Cape).
The return or The Family Dynamic is a pleasant surprise. Originally published, but bungled, by DC Comics in 2008, apparently J. Torres has obtained the rights to use the characters.

Torres hinted at their return a little while prior to going public with the True Patriot project.  As True Patriot was being built, the spotlight was turned over to some of the other characters and creators that will be featured so I began to wonder if one even had anything to do with the other after all.  I don't believe that Family Dynamic is even mentioned on the project's Facebook page, for example, so their inclusion in the Indoegogo page's gallery was great news.

I would love to see this become a regular event used to showcase Canadian talent.  Let's get the first one done and work from there.
