About C3 Comics
IN OUR TIME OF NEED
Being an Indie Creator can be fun and fantastical. Being inspired by the adventures of Superman and Batman, Spider-Man and the X-Men, like many other Indie Creators, we envisioned people one day, reading about the adventures of our characters; ourselves being an inspiration to the next generation of Creators. But there's a learning curve. Creating the Second Wave Universe and the characters that inhabit it was the fun part, and for years, we've reveled in our creations. We've put together heartbreaking, soul shattering, action-packed stories for all to enjoy, but that's just one part of this. The fun part actually. Yet sadly, imagination, creativity, dedication and, even, our own money will only get us but so far. But before we get into that...BROADEN YOUR HORIZONS and learn a little about C3 Comics.

Second Wave Universe
Some of our stories take place in a world we call THE SECOND WAVE UNIVERSE. The SWU was once a world filled with super powered heroes who defended the innocent from the evil forces of their day. The decades that followed their rise came to be known as the HEROIC AGE! Sadly, that era did not last.
Nearly 40 years prior to the start of the Intrepid series the greatest hero of the Heroic Age, Major John Valiant, assassinated the President of the United States and the Queen of the Amazon Empire in an act of terrorism. This incident, known as BLACK MONDAY, nearly set off World War III.
Fortunately war was averted. However, from that day forward all super powered crime fighting activities were banned. Masked heroes were replaced by courageous law enforcement agents armed with cutting edge technology. These braves souls became the new heroes of their time, a period known as THE AGE OF GUARDIANS. The tales of the SWU begin during that period.
INTREPID: Intrepid is the flagship title of the SWU and tells the story of the restoration of superheroes to a world that has banished them for nearly four decades. It follows the adventures of four brave souls destined to become the greatest heroes of their generation! The first story arc, Heroes & Villains, has been completed and is available in trade paperback format. We are currently in production on the follow up arc, Pandora's Cage, which will be followed by The Black Sheet Blues story arc and our first major SWU event, First Contact.
IV: ARMAGEDDON: A large undertaking in its own right, at its core is a religious-themed war thriller filled with revenge, subterfuge, betrayal, sex, redemption, humor, and a little bit of heart sprinkled in. It tells the tale of several well-known biblical figures from a very nonreligious slant. So while you may know all of their names, you most certainly don’t know their stories… well not the way we tell it.
FRET is an episodic saga pushing to be over 300 issues in total and is set for a late 2019 release.
Updates coming soon.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP?
Publishing comics is not a get rich quick scheme. Often times, the production of just one book outweighs the potential profits needed to keep the book in production. At C3 Comics our ambition is not to produce just one book. Our goal is to progressively become a publishing house for a vast array of creator owned properties. Slowly, but surely, we released the Intrepid: Heroes & Villains 6 issue story arc and we're in the process of completing the second arc, Pandora's Cage. We've financed C3 Comics with our own money for close to 20 years now, and we feel we've built an amazing company thus far. However, to go to that next level we need help. With additional funding, we wouldn't have to choose between going to a convention OR starting production on the next issue. With additional funding, we won't have to wait to finish (and pay) for the pencils and inks AND then start lettering or colors. Additional funding would dramatically speed up our ability to release our publications on an almost monthly basis AND to submit to Diamond for distribution. Every Indy Creators' dream.
THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN BE OUR HERO!!!
The funds you contribute as a patron will go towards the productions and promotion of our publications. To be specific, your contributions will go towards:
- Cover & Interior artwork for books in production
- Lettering/designs and coloring (for certain books) in production
- And most importantly, growing the C3 Brand and making people aware of C3 Comics, by increasing our convention presence and inclusion within the Previews catalog.
