About Shane Rivett

⭐️Hello everyone. I'm a self taught artist currently producing a weekly, full colour webcomic, Heroes of the World and Beyond.I'm a huge fan of Superheroes, can you tell? I am also working on a HOTWAB spin-off digital comic G.I.ANT who is teaming up with several other indie creators to bring an shared indie universe with The Expanse.

⭐️I enjoy modern comics, but also as a nostalgia junkie, I like to hark back to the simpler and fun elements of comic book tales of yesteryear. My comic, I hope, brings a mix of this. There will be a huge cast of characters, all made from various times during my life from an autistic childhood, drawing my own set of heroes in my bedroom to modern day creations through MMO's and RPGs, and some created by my brother, to make a melting pot of creativity.

⭐️Why only $1 reward? Because my Patron will be about supporting the hard work that goes in to the comic, I will upload WIP and upcoming artwork here, but keep the real effort in to going in to the comic projects, that's what we're here for, right? :D 

⚡️The Comics⚡️

Heroes of the World and Beyond brings a cast of Superhero characters created since the artists childhood to early adulthood and combines them all in to one big metahuman scenario. The idea was to bring the innocence of childhood creations to life with a mature art style and storytelling. The scenario focuses on the media aspects of modern heroism, selling the product of good vs. evil, while the reality of the morally grey areas provides the conflict between characters. Heroes can basically make a living as a celebrity, this doesn't mean it's an easy job, the bad guys are real enough and your performance in the field impacts on sales. There are some genuinely good guys out there, but it's hard to find one! Then there's the scientists and magicians poking about with dimensional travel. That's going to work out well, isn't it....

⚡️The Creator⚡️
Shane is a self taught artist with autism, who has loved comic book art since he can remember. He is the sole creator of HOTWAB and enjoys the whole process of comic making, except the flats. They can do one! Shane has previously attempted small press and webcomics in the past, the most popular one being Go-Bee. Outside of the webcomic world, Shane is a nerdaholic, and enjoys heavy metal, science fiction, classic TV and gaming. He is a carer for a disabled family member and does comics on the side. He'll probably live and die in his home town of Newcastle Upon Tyne where he lives in a pokey flat near a noisy motorway.
