The Mighty Titan by Joe Martino needs Kickstarting
Published on Monday, August 6, 2012 by

Kickstarter crowd sourcing is a great way to ensure that a comic will have an audience by letting them contribute to the creation. Joe Martino is turning to Kickstarter for his newest miniseries The Mighty Titan.5 Issue Miniseries that wraps Joe Martino’s cancer in a superhero shell. Who will protect The Mighty Titan’s alter ego from cancer?

  • Funding ends: Aug. 14, 2012 so act now!

The Mighty Titan takes Martino’s personal cancer experience and wraps them in a superhero shell. This isn’t autobiographical like Pekar’s Cancer Years, but instead a fantasy of What If creation.  The plan is to do a 5 issue mini-series with the possibility of it continuing.

Martino created Titan in 2004 during his first bout with Kidney cancer. Make no mistake, this is still a cool, fun superhero book with vile villians, giant Mechas and some really great mythological creatures. But there is certainly an underlying theme of fear and loss.

It’s a cool concept coupled with a good look.

This is a Kickstarter project to check out!

WRITER/CREATOR: Joe Martino – Joe has been creating comics since he was 10 years old. His big “break” came when he decided to do everything (mostly) on his own and publish Shadowflame back in 1996. Since then, he has been published by Arcana with Shadowflame and Ripperman, etc.

PENCILER: Luca Cicchitti – is a relative newcomer to the comic world. His pencils are bringing Titan to life in a way we couldn’t have imagined.

PENCILER: Cory Smith – Cory Smith is an illustrator and comic artist living and working in New York. Since graduating from the Joe Kubert School in 2004, Cory has worked with clients such as Nickelodeon, Hasbro, Disney, Crayola, and many others on a wide variety of projects and properties. Cory is the artist on the Aspen series BROKEN PIECES, and is the co-creator of THE INDEPENDENTS with writer Ben Christian.

INKER: Jeff Austin – In 1965, Jeff was born. At present, the story hasn’t ended. Jeff is also very well known in the indy comic scene and one of the best inkers out there. He has worked for Image (Big Bang Comics) Main Enterprises (Betsy and more), Arcana (Shadowflame, Ripperman. Dead Men Tell No Tales) , Trinity Comics (The Wraith) Faust, FemForce and many others.

COLORIST: Keith J. Betancourt – For those who know him, Keith is considered a triple threat. He is a penciler, inker and digital colorist. As a colorist, some of his work includes the cover to Time Flyz Volume 8, The DVD Cover to Worst that can Happen (Interspecies Wrestling), art for the NJ hardcore band Ripface Invasion and more from the independent comic Megazeen. Since the age of 2 Keith has been honing his skills, anticipating the day when he can officially break through the comic book world and and show them what he can really do.
