Artists

Unlikely Heroes Studios

We are an independent comic book company with a team spread out all over America who creates, prints, and publishes high-quality comics. Our current piece de resistance is Super!, which follows a ragtag team of amateur heroes as they struggle to make a name for themselves in a universe dominated by more popular, established teams. In the grand tradition of "the Venture Bros." and "Mystery Men", "SUPER!" is a loving homage to the genre that knows when to laugh at itself and isn't afraid to poke fun at comic tropes along the way. Check out super-comic.com for more details and a steamy free preview of Super!
