Iconic Comics’ “Black Hops X Kamen America X Soul Finder” Now Crossing Over for Big Cash
On Wednesday, Iconic Comics launched a crowdfunding campaign for Black Hops X Kamen America X Soul Finder, a 72-page crossover event featuring three of Iconic’s most successful franchises. The story isn’t the only thing crossing over either, as the project is being simultaneously funded on both Indiegogo and Kickstarter.
The project is well beyond fully funded, having so far raised a total of nearly $70 thousand between the two crowdfunding platforms.
Written by by Mark Pellegrini and featuring illustrations by Timothy Lim, Kamen America X Black Hops X Soul Finder is a blend of superheroes, sci-fi, and fantasy.
Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Kamen America X Black Hops X Soul Finder Indiegogo campaign page:
BLACK HOPS is the United States’ special task force comprised of various operators, specialists, and the modern day cryptids that make the team so unique.
Their mission: eliminate the shadowy criminal organization known as CRYPTIQ and its leader, APEX MOTH, who seeks to weaponize cryptids for a grand, sinister plot that remains as unknown and mysterious as he is.
In this particular mission, the Black Hops roster is comprised of 3 nefarious individuals:
KANINA LOVACOVA, a.k.a. HARE TRIGGER: Former CRYPTIQ 2nd in command, she was the head of the organization’s paramilitary unit. She recently acquired the hand of Saint Columba, which allows her to communicate with animals and cryptids and gives her command over her hair.
VICTORIA KAMINSKI, a.k.a. VERMILLION MASQUERADE: Former foe of KAMEN AMERICA, she was a geologist turned supervillain. Possesses elemental control over the earth, but recent events resulted in her being significantly de-powered.
SYLVIA PRESTIGE, a.k.a. KAMEN VICTORY: Former foe of KAMEN AMERICA, she was used by the media agency Lansky & Schultz to act as controlled opposition along with Vermillion Masquerade. Once the plot was exposed, Sylvia confessed her ignorance of the situation and now fights alongside the KAMEN CORPS.
Charlotte Vanders had dashed hopes of being a fashion designer when one day she was struck by cosmic debris. Imbued her with the ability to act as a supercharged, high-flying human battery, she soon learns that being a hero sometimes means making the hard choice between doing what’s right versus doing what’s fashionable. As the patriotic paladin KAMEN AMERICA, she defends the nation against all its adversaries.
Joining them will be Father Patrick Retter of the Soulfinders — a small, elite group of trained exorcists with combat experience. Their primary, ancient mission is to stop the cult of the demon Blackfire, who tempts his subjects into willingly subjecting themselves to possession. Father Retter has expertise in the fields of demonology and the occult, two important details that make him suitable as an operator for this particular mission.
