Kickstarter Spotlight: The Mighty Titan
Jul 18, 2012 by     1 Comment     Posted In: Kickstarter Spotlight

kickstarter-logoCancer. It’s a nasty word right? Cancer can bring some pretty horrific things to mind. For two time cancer survivor and writer Joe Martino, a battle with kidney cancer has turned into inspiration for our featured Kickstarter this week, The Mighty Titan. Martino created this series in 2004 during his first bout with cancer. The result is a book dealing with an underlying theme of fear and loss that anyone can relate too. Too serious? Nope, it also has vile villains, giant Mechas, and mythological creatures, oh my! This series has been planned as a five issue mini-series with a chance of going even further! Check out the moving Kickstarter video from the series creator!


Joe Martino began his career on his own by self publishing his book Shadowflame in 1996. After that success he was picked up by Arcana, who has published that along with his works Ripperman, Main Enterprises, and Coscom Entertainment. His latest project brings him back to the arena of self publishing along with pencilers Luca Cicchitti and Cory Smith.

The Why: Joe will need the funding from this project to help pay his creative team, printing, and cost of marketing the series to a broader audience. The Mighty Titan Kickstarter will need to raise $10,550 in order to come to life!

The Rewards: What’s a Kickstarter campaign without the sweet rewards? Not only will you have the satisfaction of knowing you helped bring this amazing story to life, you also get to take home some pretty neat stuff!
