Writer Joe Glass is back with a new Kickstarter for a graphic novel called The Miracles. Known for their work on The Pride, Acceptable Losses and last year’s crowdfunded comic Glitter Vipers—read our interview with Glass here–the new graphic novel spans 120 pages and features art by Vince Underwood, colors by Harry Saxon, and letters by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
The Kickstarter launched today.
So what’s it about?
The Miracles tells the story of Elliot Morgan, an average teenager coming to the end of his high school career. A massive comic book nerd, he’s obsessed with an old comic that ended on a never-resolved cliffhanger, Major Voltage Adventures. This of course means he’s shocked and delighted when suddenly he discovers that he has superpowers of his own.
But the startling revelations aren’t over yet, as he’s confronted by Major Voltage and his wife Ms Phantom straight out of the comics – superheroes who turn out to in fact be his own parents!. As the family’s big secret as refugees from a comic book into the real world comes to light, the family each begins dealing with the secrets they’ve all been keeping from each other too. But is the world ready for them, and will the family survive the truths that threaten to tear them apart?
