KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'Mitch Hammer: Construction Mutant' #1 by Chris Lewis, Fernando Pinto, K. Michael Russelll

MITCH HAMMER #1 is 24-pages of construction worker vs. big monster action, available in digital form for ONLY ONE DOLLAR, or as an OVERSIZED XXL print edition!


MITCH HAMMER issue #1 (of 3) introduces us to the titular construction worker, who wants to go home and have a beer after a long day of work. He’ll have to wait for his barley pop, though, when the local community college is attacked by C.L.O.T., the militant wing of the National Blood Clot Association. Together with his best buddy Jorge and the brilliant graduate student Katie, it’s up to Mitch to save the students from science gone wrong.

Unless you're looking for a physical copy of the book. In that case we've got something extra special for you in the form of an XXL print edition!

At a hefty 7.5 x 11 format (estimated), the print version of MITCH HAMMER is almost as big as the man himself. Not only will you be able to see the glorious artwork in super size, but you can use the comic to swat away any invasive mutant caterpillars that might be creepy crawling your way at this very moment.

With this two-track approach - offering the pdf at the low low price of $1, while giving physical comics lovers the chance to order an XXL analogue version - we hope to get MITCH HAMMER into as many meaty hands as possible. And every penny raised will go towards producing issue #2. The future of blue-collar comics has never looked brighter!



Did I mention that MITCH HAMMER #1 is completely finished? We can start sending out rewards as soon as the campaign ends!

Which is good because I can’t wait for you to see the results of this insanely-talented creative team. Fernando Pinto draws lovely caterpillars, both the motorized and mutant-ized variations. K. Michael Russell brings an old school vibe with some tasty colors. Nic J. Shaw, aka Ironbark, makes my script look good with his bold letters. And with Dan Hill edits, and a Chris Kosek-designed cover that’s going to knock your socks off, this is the muscular action book you’ve been waiting for.


As I said, the book is already finished, so I don’t see any risks here. Other than the health risk associated with losing your heart to one of those safety vest-wearing, chest hair-spouting, dangerous but lovable construction worker types!

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:
