Sleeveless Comics’ “Englewood” Book 2 Now on Indiegogo (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

Earlier in July, independent comic book creator and Sleeveless Comics founder Micah Curtis launched a crowdfunding campaign for Englewood: Book 2, the 66-page follow up to the first issue that was successfully crowdfunded in 2019.

Written by Curtis and featuring illustrations by Brian Martinez and colors by Armand Strange, Englewood is a street-level superhero story set on the crime-ridden streets of Chicago.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Englewood: Book 2 Indiegogo campaign page:

Micah Curtis, Brian Martinez, and Armand Strange are taking you back to the Windy City for Englewood: Book 2! This time around, the boys are bringing you a 66 page full color graphic novel that concludes the arc that began in the first issue of Englewood!

After sticking up for one of his students, former MMA heavyweight champion Elijah Wallace’s gym is struck in a drive-by shooting, with the culprit being the very gang lieutenant that he had fought off earlier in that day. Amidst the blood and bodies of his students, Elijah vows that he will bring justice for the lives lost. The police are unable to deliver it do to the crooked nature of Chicago.

Not one to be deterred, Elijah Wallace decides that philanthropy is simply not enough to change the city that he loves—he needs to take a more physical approach. He dons the black hood of The Saint and hits the streets, intending to bring Carlos and his gang down, one man at a time.

If you’re a fan of comics like Batman, Daredevil, Shang-Chi, or Iron Fist, or love video games like Streets of Rage and Final Fight, this is the comic for you!

Streets of Rage, eh? Show me your Blaze Fielding, and I’ll show you my wallet!

Backers can get either a physical or digital copy of Englewood: Book 2 for $25. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up:

  • Additional copies of the book
  • Art prints
  • T-Shirt
  • Poster
  • A chance to have your likeness drawn into the book as a cop

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
