SUPER REAL issues 6 and 7 back in print! (AVAILABLE ONLY TIL 12/17)

Help fund new printings of the final two issues of my first comic book series, Super Real, to keep the series in stock for its 15th anniversary!



I started my creative journey into comic books with a self-published series called Super Real, which I debuted with a preview book ash-can at San Diego Comic Con in 2003. The book was a send-up of reality TV and comic book superheroes that would officially see release to comic book shops beginning in November of 2005. Along the way it received great reviews and built a solid fan following. And then in 2010 it was released as a graphic novel, collecting all seven issues of the series, my passion project, in one self contained over-the-top epic story that completed the series. And while the first five single issues were mass produced, the last two single issues were not widely distributed, and my stock on those last two books (as well as the graphic novels) has since completely sold out and been unavailable for some time.

Since I still have plenty of stock on the early issues, and each of those had limited edition variants, I'm looking to raise some funds for new printings of those last two single issues, issues 6 and 7, the climax of the story (issue 6 was double-sized and 56 pages, while issue 7 was an extra long 28 pages of story). So I'm offering up new special limited edition versions of these new printings for those  issues to raise some money to print up inventory of the regular versions as well, and then have stock on the entire 7 issue series once more.

With your help I can keep the full story in print and available to all my new fans from books I currently work on like Vampblade, Danger Doll Squad, and PRINCE-S STARthief, etc.

I'm still really proud of what I did with Super Real (doing everything on 5 of the issues, and then collaborating with many talented artists on the two special issues) and don't want it to go out of print. Creating new printings of those last two out of print issues will allow me to offer the complete story again online and at shows, and keep my first comic work in circulation during it's 15th anniversary of creation!!

Please take a look at the special edition books below, and thanks for helping out!

There are new exclusive versions of the final two issues featuring new amazing cover artwork from a couple of my most recent comic book collaborators - Bill McKay (who I worked with on Night of the 80s Undead), and Celor (who was the artist of my PRINCE-S STARthief) - which are being offered as a pre-sale FOR 10 DAYS ONLY IN MY STORE (starting on Friday 12/7/18 at midnight and ending on 12/17/18):

ABOUT SUPER REAL


It's X-Men meets The Real World in an over-the-top, genetically enhanced, nipple twisting, lethal middle finger flipping mash-up of comic book fiction, pop culture, politics, and ultra-violence!!!
Issue 1-7
Upstart extreme programming network X-TV want to create a reality show beyond anything that’s been done... bio-tech firm Geniburton want to slip their stem-cell based genetic enhancements out to the private market... Super Real is born! Casting five participants with the physique to rock nano-skin jumpsuits, and the desperation to participate in dangerous genetic manipulation, all for a million dollar paycheck and TV celebrity may not be a problem. However, keeping them alive and under control once they’re given superhuman abilities is another story!!!


Super Real follows five people who sign million dollar contracts to get genetically enhanced for a reality show based on comic book superheroes.  Created by Jason Martin (writer/artist) and recommended by Newsarama, Aint It Cool News, Comics Buyers Guide and many more. The series spans 7 issues telling one complete story, and features guest artwork from Jim Mahfood (Grrl Scouts), Dan Mendoza (Zombie Tramp), Josh Howard (Dead@17), The Boo (Vegan Cavegirl) and more.


Original (currently out of stock) issue 6 and 7
The final two issues, issues 6 and 7, which are being offered in new limited editions HERE feature new cover art and the original interiors by series creator Jason Martin, which conclude the first series.

I always envisioned Super Real as a trilogy of sorts, with each series a different concept in an overall connecting story. I even started work on the second series, Super Clone, after completing the first (there was a preview book at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con). And I'd still like to get back to that... lets just hope another 15 years don't go by before I get things going! :)

Thanks!
Jason

New comic debuting this weekend for HALLOWEEN COMIC FEST!

Halloween Comic Fest is like the October version of Free Comic Book Day in US comic book shops, and each year Action Lab debuts a new Danger Doll Universe title. This year I'm super excited to debut an all new creation of mine, Amalgama!


In the last Danger Doll Squad mini-series I wrote (Danger Doll Squad: Galactic Gladiators) we had two new characters; a genetic mash-up of all 3 Danger Dolls, and the evil space villain Amalgama... but by the end of the series (SPOILER ALERT) the two characters had merged. And so, that's where this new mini-series DANGER DOLL PRESENTS: AMALGAMA LIVES picks up!

The Halloween Comic Fest book will preview the first issue and showcase the creation of the new Amalgama 2.0, a mix of Zombie Tramp, Vampblade, DollFace and Amalgama herself. Its the start of a cool new sci-fi series set in the Danger Doll Universe.

Be sure to check it out!
And be sure to watch for the mini-series starting next February!

SWISS ARMY WOMAN SDCC preview book!

This San Diego Comic Con I'm world debuting a new book I'm working on a Kickstarter for, SWISS ARMY WOMAN!

I'll have some oversized high gloss deluxe edition super limited preview books featuring 8 pages of the origin story, just for the show. It's written and created by me and features artwork by the fabulous Italian Humberto Ramos, Marco Maccagni (with letters by Justin Birch)!

These are pages worked up to promote an upcoming Kickstarter to fund the book... which is coming soon!

In the meantime these books are 12 pages, 8.5x11", and limited to 25 hand numbered copies.
(They will be $20ea at the show, but email me if you're interested as there may be limited copies available afterwards)

And yes, you may have seen our Ms Swiss before as the concept was part of my original Pulp Girls project, and there was a Swiss Army girl preview in the 2009 convention book, and her own preview book in 2010.

I'm super excited for this project, and as you can see Marco is killing it!
So stay tuned for the Kickstarter!

VAMPBLADE seaon 3 (and DANGER DOLL SQUAD series 2)!!!


Right now I have two new books I'm writing that are in comic shops...

My ongoing monthly series Vampblade is released in seasons, and we just started year 3!!!

Issue one (the 26th overall issue in the series) is out this week and features Katie Carva in an alternate dimension where the events of season's one and two have yet to occur... along with another Katie Carva, Vampblade!!??

This season I'm joined by new artist Marcelo Costa. Marcelo is an amazing colorist that has worked on the books for years, and I'm super excited to work with him on art now as well. I think you'll agree, his stuff is pretty incredible!


Also debuting this week is the second DANGER DOLL SQUAD mini-series that crosses over my Vampblade with Dan Mendoza's Zombie Tramp and Dan & Bryan Seaton's DollFace. The three of us cooked up a cool new series called Galactic Gladiators, that finds the girls zapped across the galaxy to a mysterious hive of genetic experimentation and gladitorial combat!

I'm scripting from a plot by me and Dan, and it's drawn by the always fantastic Winston Young (along with Celor)! Plus the series will feature the debut of what is sure to be a new fan favorite character...


The books are available in comic shops now, or online digitally through ComiXology!

DANGER DOLL SQUAD issue 1 JMart exclusive

In addition to writing Vampblade every month, I also co-write Zombie Tramp from time to time, and work on special issues and more, and right now I'm currently also writing the Danger Doll Squad series (which crosses over three Danger Zone titles; Zombie Tramp, Vampblade, and DollFace). Issue 0 came out in August and set the stage for the mini-series, and now Danger Doll Squad issue 1 comes out in stores this week!

I'm extra excited for issue one because it will also feature a cover that I did. In this case it's a limited cover that's exclusive to me:
JMart exclusive variant (cover J) - limited to 250 copies

200 regular copies


plus I'm offering 50 remarked copies (with hand inked artwork added onto the cover itself)



The artwork is an homage to the famous Justice League cartoon series artwork that re-imagines the girls as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman (of sorts)!!

These books will be sold directly by me, come signed, and are now available in my store (and on eBay)

BACK cover
FRONT cover
24 pages / B&W (about 200-300 copies?) / ash-can - $10ea
