Haunted Pizza’s Superhero Comic “Hurley’s Heroes” Fully Funded in First 24 Hours

On Wednesday, Haunted Pizza launched a crowdfunding campaign for Hurley’s Heroes issue 1, a 40-page “flipbook” that includes not just the main story, but also a 12-page preview of HP’s upcoming sci-fi action series, Universals Initiative.

The project is already fully funded, having raised more than $3 thousand at the time of this writing.

Written by Mark Poulton (Graveyard Shift) and featuring illustrations by Fredson Oliveira and colors by Anthony George (Graveyard Shift), Hurley’s Heroes is a superhero adventure set in the same universe as SeaDog and Codename: Killswitch.

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

Hurley’s Heroes tells the story of a man who dedicates his life to helping others after receiving superpowers from his superhero organ donor.

Inspired by the life of Hurley Alderman who dedicated his life to working with children with disabilities after surviving two strokes and dual organ transplants.

  • 40 page squarebound book.
  • Variant covers by Donal Delay (CA$H GRAB) and Jon Malin (Godlike, Graveyard Shift).
  • Guest starring SeaDog!
  • All books come signed by Mark Poulton and Hurley Alderman.
  • Currently in development as a live-action motion picture with writer/director/producer Sean Patrick O’Reilly (Corrective Measures).

Backers can get a copy of Hurley’s Heroes for $25. If you have more money to spend, you can also receive the following tchotchkes and extras:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • A sketch by Mark Poulton
  • A mini figure
  • A 2024 calendar
  • Poster
  • Acrylic pin set
  • A SeaDog slam buddy
  • Copies of SeaDog and Codename: Killswitch issues 1&2

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