Giant, the Nemesis Girl, and the Fantastic Girl enter into the Challenge of the Gods in Book 2 of this 13 part series from Heroic.
It began in FLARE #47.
Now, in HEROIC SPOTLIGHT #27, it's time for the FANTASTIC GIRL and the all-new GIANT to step up to meet THE CHALLENGE OF THE GODS.
This is Book 2 in the epic 13 part adventure that will cross over into multiple Heroic Publishing titles. And there are two adventures being prepared for this issue.
First, GIANT and the NEMESIS GIRL return to face off against ARES, the Olympian god of war, in an all-new adventure by DENNIS MALLONEE and CHRIS MARRINAN. Ares has for some time had his eye on the Nemesis Girl. Now he wants her to prove herself worthy of his attentions by competing in the Challenge of the Gods. But Giant knows Ares is not to be trusted, and doesn't like him the least little bit.
Then, in an all-new adventure by DENNIS MALLONEE and FRANCESCO GERBINO, the FANTASTIC GIRL is on the trail of the MISTER JUPITER. And when at last she finds him, she's going to learn a few surprising secrets about who both she and this mysterious "lord of crime" truly are.
We're looking for your help in getting this chapter in "The Challenge of the Gods" ready to go to press. The stories have been written. Chris and Francesco are champing at the bit to start putting ink to paper. With your support, we'll be able to accomplish that goal.
As rewards, we're offering both digital and physical copies of this issue of Heroic Spotlight, PLUS copies of all the comic books and trade paperbacks that lead into the Challenge of the Gods story line.
We're also going to give you several opportunities to acquire original art. And there'll be plenty of other rewards available for you to choose from, including subscription offers plus a hat or a beanie with a Heroic Publishing logo.
Our initial goal is to raise $3000 to cover the production costs for this issue. As a stretch goal, any support we receive beyond that initial amount will be earmarked for The Challenge of the Gods Book Three.
Our target date for delivering to our printer Book Two of The Challenged of the Gods is April of 2018. With your help, we will make this happen.
