Joe St. Pierre, whose work on Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Batman, Superman, and many other high profile characters you may be familiar with, has recently started a Kickstarter campaign to bring his web comic – Liberaider – into print as a hardcover volume.
Liberaider is a story about Benjamin F, a teenage “Robin Hood” hacktivist, who finds some dark secrets in the secure databases of Dinosaur Incorporated. The corporation runs just about everything in his world and by making those secrets public Benjamin F risks his life in order to make the world a better place.
St. Pierre has written, penciled, inked, colored and lettered THE LIBERAIDER and his Kickstarter campaign is looking to cover the cost of printing. There are several pledge tiers that insure that you will get something back for your donation.
