Will Patrick Thomas Parnell’s “Ultra Star” Restore Your Faith in Superhero Comics Again?

Now that independent comic book creator Patrick Thomas Parnell is putting the finishing touches on Johnny Phantasm 1985, he’s preparing to launch his next crowdfunding project: Ultra Star.*

Previously referred to as “Project Supermen”, Ultra Star is a superhero story intended to restore “faith in superhero comics again.”

Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Ultra Star Indiegogo campaign page:

Ultra Star is the Super Man we deserve.

What happens when this League of superheroes loses their main guy, ULTRA STAR! As a reporter investigates the world’s most famous and powerful super hero, he discovers a horrible truth. How will the team of heroes avenge him and bring him to salvation?

Parnell intends to begin crowdfunding Ultra Star once Johnny Phantasm 1985 goes into fulfillment, which is expected to occur in the next couple of months. While we all wait, you can sign up for email updates on the Ultra Star pre-launch page here. For those who do sign up, Parnell is offering a $5-$10 discount on the book when the campaign goes live.
