Image Comics' 2012-2013 Creator Owned Heroes anthology is coming back from the back issue bins for an independent digital collection. Co-creator Jimmy Palmiotti is currently raising funds for the project on Kickstarter, aiming to raise $5,000 (or more) by February 5.
"What we were trying to do monthly with Creator Owned Heroes was bring a mixture of comics, interviews, cosplay and how to material to the comic book lovers out there for a cheap price," Palmiotti explained on Kickstarter.
"Sort of like Wizard magazine with sequential storytelling included by some of the greatest talents in the industry. We published eight oversized books and now for the first time we are DIGITALLY COLLECTING all 8 issues into one huge DIGITAL 386 page read for an insanely reasonable price!"
The series included several original series including Triggergirl 6 by Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and artist Phil Noto; American Muscle by Steve Niles and Kevin Mellon; Killswitch by Palmiotti, Gray, and Jerry Lando; Black Sparrow by Niles, Jay Russell, and Andrew Ritchie; Meatbag by Ritchie and Scott Morse, and a short story by the late Darwyn Cooke.
Palmiotti is aiming to release the Creator Owned Heroes digital collection this February.
