A Defense Attorney Meets Her Kung Fu Fate in “Black Tiger: Hidden Dragon” (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

Independent comic book creator John Hervey recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for Black Tiger: Hidden Dragon Vol. 1, an 88-page martial arts action adventure graphic novel. Not only is the project already fully funded, but the production work is also 100% complete, so all that needs to be done now is get the final numbers for the print order (and maybe unlock some stretch goals along the way).

Written by Hervey (Troubleman) and featuring illustrations by Rod “Super” Luper (Star Wars: Outlander), colors by Vincius Townsend (G.I. Joe) & Beezzz Studios, and letters by Marco Della Verde (Achille’s Inc), Black Tiger: Hidden Dragon is a follow up to Black Tiger: Legacy of Fury, which was successfully crowdfunded in 2019.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for the new book taken from the Black Tiger: Hidden Dragon Indiegogo campaign page:

As the unexpected recipient of mystical martial arts super powers that have been in her family for three generations, Jenn strives to restore the heroic legacy of her father while warring factions bring the city of Los Santos to the brink of implosion.

Driven by the unsolved murder of her father and defamation of his name both as an officer of the peace and as Black Tiger, Jenn wages a personal and professional battle against injustice.

Jenn’s purpose and the unpredictability of her new powers collide as the socially downtrodden meta-humans poise themselves for an insurrection that threatens not only the social fabric of the city, but also unmasks the true forces behind the death and desecration of her father’s legacy.

Backers can get a digital version of Black Tiger: Hidden Dragon for $10, while physical copies start at $25. For those with more cash to throw around, you can also receive multiple copies of the book, variant covers, art prints, a metal bookmark, t-shirts, and commissioned artwork. There are also options to pick up the first Black Tiger book for those who want to catch up. It is worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
