Independent comic book creator and The Fourth Age founder R.J. Shaw recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for The Valiant Heroes, an 82-page action adventure anthology.

The project is already fully funded, having raised more than $7 thousand at the time of this writing.

Written by R.J. Shaw and featuring illustrations by multiple artists, The Valiant Heroes is a part of the Thomas Valiant universe and is intended for readers of all ages.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the The Valiant Heroes’ Indiegogo campaign page:
