Radioactive Comics: The Golden Five

I came across an interesting "credit" recently while viewing a Kickstarter project.

The above is one of several graphics used as promotion by Radioactive Comics.  The second name appearing on the writing credits, at top middle, is that of Northguard creator Mark Shainblum.  He is similarly credited on a display for the Thirdblood book shown at bottom left.  On their Kickstarter profile, Shainblum is named as an editor.

Each "board" can be viewed on the Kickstarter page (funding for which has since come to an end).  The page is said to be managed by one Denis Cadorette who, according to Facebook, is from Trois-Rivi√®re so while Radioactive Comics are based out of Henderson, Nevada, there is a clear Canadian influence at work.

You can get a good look at the Thirdblood book from this preview on DriveThru Comics.  Radioactive Comics also has a website started here where additional graphics are available.

Aside from those resources, I contacted a couple of the people involved to ask for more information, but have not heard back.  Hopefully that isn't a sign that the project is dead because some of these books look like they could be a lot of fun.
