Self-Publishing A Comic Book!!!

Recommended Posts




After all my years of life I've decided now is the time to create my comic book. I have the ability and means to do so, so I'm taking the plunge to self-publish my own comic book. I got back into drawing about 4 years ago or so and have been building my skills back up while attending comic book shows in North Carolina and doing lots of fan art. Now it's time to do my own art and my own characters. 


So, why should a bunch of City of Heroes lovers care? Well, 1) the characters you see might remind you of a certain city filled with heroes. After playing CoH since the start I incorporated many characters I created when I was young into the game. I also created some toons in-game that I have written into the story as I have reshaped it. So, depending on how long you've played and what server you spent a lot of time on you may see some familiar names. 2) I hope you'd support a fellow community member. I sure can use the help following my social accounts, supporting the book and just generally spreading the word. You can never have enough exposure. 3) Maybe you want to collaborate and come on this journey with me. As it is I'm doing it all on my own and that will certainly lengthen out my timeline until I can get this book to print. 


The book is called, The Vigilantes. The Vigilantes is a story about legacy and how we want to leave the world for our children. When Massive Man introduces his son Josh to the world as the next Vigilante he finds the community he helped create is not what it was when he retired to raise him. At the same time Massive Man’s old archenemy, Alteration, has returned to Earth after their final confrontation looking for revenge. Can Massive Man gain the trust of these new Vigilantes and turn them into a formidable force for justice in time to stop Alteration’s evil plans?


The story has been written and the characters have been designed for the book. I'm about ready to start churning out pages as best I can. You can check out my site to learn more and see the characters from the book. Art of MentalPablum You can also contact me through the site and/or sign up for my newsletter where I'll keep people updated on what I'm doing and how the book is coming along. 


I would also be grateful for any followers to my social media accounts. I refuse to pay for fake bot accounts. I think I've earned the small following I have now, but I know it could be bolstered by the mighty force of the CoH community. 😄 On Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, just search for MentalPalbum and you should find me. I also have them linked from my website. 


I thank you very much in advance. I love you guys. Let me know if you have any questions.

I've started a pre-launch page for my comic on Indiegogo. Just taking sign-ups right now, but if you sign-up you'll get a 10% discount when the campaign goes live in 5 months. Here is some of the character art. Here is the link to the pre-launch page. The Vigilantes: Volume One Pre-Launch


Signing up really helps so even if you have no interest in buying the book signing up helps my page poll higher on Indiegogo. Don't worry, I won't spam with e-mails daily.
