Auric: A God In Plastic Kickstarter Now Live

I'm pleased to announce my involvement once again with Great North Comics as the cover artist for their newest Auric miniseries, A God In Plastic, written by Mark Shainblum and Illustrated by Dan Day. Here is a synopsis (taken directly from the Kickstarter page)

 It's 1941... 
And it’s been nearly thirty years since Auric's mission to save the north began, but even as his legend grows, he is still feared and shunned by most of the people he fights to protect.  But now the world is is aflame, and not even the great protector can stay isolated from Hitler's war. The Nazis have ensnared a dark power from Canada's north, which could lead to the death of billions and doom for the Allied cause. Canada's wartime mystery man, The Black Ensign, comes to recruit Auric to the war effort, and he's not taking "No" for an answer!  Auric comes face to face with the Canadian Prime Minister, Mackenzie King, who is secretly also a sorcerer supreme, The Wizard of the Western World.  And don't miss the return of Auric's patron, spirit of the Inuit people, The Northern Goddess!

Follow Auric and his allies into the fray as Canadian Comic Book Hall of Fame Writer Mark Shainblum (Northguard, Angloman, Corum) and Legendary Canadian Artist Dan Day (Saga of the Swamp Thing, Detective Comics, Doctor Strange, Cases of Sherlock Holmes) add a new chapter to the legend of the greatest hero of...

The Great White North.

The Kickstarter is now live through the end of May and you can support this project (and secure a plethora or awesome rewards) at:
