Not So Super Kickstarter!

Hey guys, as you may or may not know, I recently illustrated half of a comic written by Jaques Nyemb called Smorgasbord Squad. It’s a fun, action comic about a group of food themed super heroes! Reviewers have been saying it’s reminiscent of 90s cartoons (which is the highest compliment known to man)

Currently Jaques is doing a Kickstarter for Smorg as well as two other comics: Not So Super and This Bites.

By supporting this Kickstarter you can get digital copies of these comics, printed versions, behind the scenes extras, and custom portrait avatars by yours truly and the other talented artists behind these comics. (The last image of this post art samples of those)

Please check out the Kickstarter and buy some not so super cool comics!

REVIEWS!

SMÖRGÅSBORD SQUAD

Smorgasbord Squad is 100% independently funded and worked on. When you see it you’ll be impressed because it looks more professional than the aforementioned KaBoom titles.

—Dustin Cabeal | comicbastards.com

A group of food-themed superheroes is inherently ridiculous, and Nyemb, Wood, and Miller play it up. It’s an immensely fun read, with Wood and Miller’s art both being something as much at home in comics as it is on a Saturday morning cartoon.

  Leo Johnson | stashmycomics.com

There is nothing objectionable in here, I think any age could enjoy this book. There is a tiny bit of cartoon violence; some paranormal/ supernatural /extraterrestrial high-weirdness; a hint at bad language (seriously a hint, implied— and nicely done) … But the artwork and wild plot twists should appeal to youngsters. It is sophisticated and intelligent enough for adults to enjoy as well. 

—  Robert Emmett | wordofthenerdonline.com 

I mean, extremely perfect happy-go-lucky city, missing food in the fridge that signals the end of the world, greedy food-consuming villains, and ridiculously looking food-costumed vigilantes? If an adult reader can’t appreciate the simplicity of it all, I’m sure a child would get a kick out of this fun-loving comic.

—  Laura Hong | cc2konline.com

All in all I really liked this first issue. It reminded me of a cartoon that I could see myself sitting down and watching. It did all ages comedy in a way that seemed to be both funny for children and adults. I really appreciated some of the fourth wall breaking and humor that came out of that.

—  Jesse Quick-Rincon | capelesscrusader.org

Think Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs meets The Lego Movie kept alive by the beating heart of a 90’s kid, and that’s what you’ll see in the slightly irreverent imagining of childhood satiations

THIS BITES

In an industry filled with numerous well done vampire books, it’s refreshing to see someone take the genre in a direction it hasn’t been before. With a few slight tweaks, this series seems like it could be easily adapted into a fun, all-ages cartoon. 

— Jake Tanner | followingthenerd.com

Speaking of the book’s tone it’s almost ridiculous, but the best kind of ridiculous. The story moves fast and the characters are completely larger than life, it’s just all silly fun, that again brings back memories of goofy and lively children’s cartoons.

— Matt Johnson | panelsandpixels.com

As I read, I got the nagging sensation that I was being followed by nostalgia. Then it bit me:  This Bites is, in every way, a story boarded version of one of those insane shorts you’d see on the old animation anthology show, Liquid Television.

NOT SO SUPER

Nyemb and Hunter have created an indie gem here on this book, and their combination of quietly funny writing and cutesy art style makes this book stand out.

— Ari Carr | comicsandcookies.com

Were you looking for Dilbert meets Scott Pilgrim but had no idea where to find it? Well, look no further, obscure genre seeker. I have just the thing for you, it’s Not So Super. That’s the title, not my synopsis. It is quite super in the underdog-gets-superpowers kind of way.

— Luke Anthony | theouthousers.com

Not So Super is awesome! Period. (Or exclamation point if you prefer!) It takes an everyman sort of character, in a boring every day job and then gives him something that he must have dreamed about having (superpowers), but is unable to control or understand.

— RevN4 | geeksofdoom.com/

…once in a rare while, a set of independent creators brings a comic that is broadly appealing, readable, engaging, and easily more worth the money than a continually repeating X-Men storyline or apocalyptic Justice League cross-over. Today, Not So Super is that comic.

— Sean A. Guynes | graphicpolicy.com

This is a good first issue. Peppered (ahem) with humour, it has a certain charm and managed put a smile on my face. 

— Mark McKenzie-Ray | thought-ray.blogspot.co.uk

Not So Super is well worth a read.

—  Leo Johnson | NerdSpan

The writing and art work together perfectly, hitting the same tonal notes; Nyemb and Hunter manage to bounce back and forth the humor and the mundane events to create a book that is wholly entertaining from start to finish. 

— Kristine Chester | Fanboy Comics

It sort of reminds me of DC Comics’ Resurrection Man only Dan doesn’t have to die… and his powers are practically useless. It’s a combination ripe for action, intrigue and comedy and I can’t wait to see where Nyemb and Hunter take the story next.

—Rondal Scott |  Strange Kids Club

…I liked that this was a comic in its truest sense, something that anyone could read and enjoy.

—Dustin Cabeal | comicbastards.com

Jacques Nyemb and Joe Hunter work well together and this is a comic book that would suit most ages and certainly would be a good start for those who want to get into comics.

—Susie Cumberland | wordofthenerdonline.com

"Not So Super" hits it out the park. Nyemb has no trouble fleshing out a story and developing Dan into someone we can all dig and say "yup, I love comic books."

We’ve been working very hard on yet another comic book. It’s called the Smörgåsbord Squad. 

Story 1: Hasenpfeffer USA is a beautiful city. But its charm fades when feuding enemies, food costumed vigilante group, the Smörgåsbord Squad and the evil H.U.N.G.E.R. Pack take their battles to the streets. Written by Jacques Nyemb, Illustrated by Justin Wood and lettered by Marc Jackson.

Stay Tuned we also have an origin story as well, illustrated by Kayla Miller

Time to celebrate! 
The Not So Super comic is now on comiXology.
Find out for yourself what all the hubbub is all about. You won’t be sorry!
About the Comic:
Daniel is a 30 something bachelor who lives in a world where the mild-mannered receive little attention. Each day constantly speeds by and all he sees in his immediate future in an eternal state of bachelorhood and entrapment by the company’s smart phone.
One day his life takes a weird turn when he wakes up with a random assortment of powers. The list of powers grows and Daniel never knows when they appear or disappear. None of the powers are particularly helpful to him and they find ways to inconvenience him at every turn. As a matter of fact, we see his life spiral into sheer chaos as he maneuvers in our unforgiving, modern world as he tries to figure out what made him this way.Daniel’s story is very relatable in a sense. It forces us to take a look at our own hectic lives and realize that we all have something that makes us “Super” but we never attain the status of Super Hero because we tend to see “Super” as a colossal burden.

OPEN FOR LOGO COMMISSIONS!

jnyemb:

Hey everyone!

I’m getting ready for my first 2014 convention circuit and need to save up some funds to get Not So Super comics debuted properly. That means getting comics printed, banners designed, flyers, cards and trinkets. You know the deal. 

Let’s be honest, I’m jealous of you awesome artists. I, being a writer, can’t commission out that skill to raise funds, but I can do some pretty mean graphic design. So I want to offer up my logo making skills at the unheard of price of $40 to reach my funding goal.

image

ABOUT ME:
When I devour comics, I wash them down with a tall glass of design. I’m a graphic/web designer by trade (so no worries about getting quality logos) and also the founder/writer for Not So Super Comics

WHAT YOU’LL GET
You’ll get your final CUSTOM logo in color and black & white in 4 different file formats to fit your needs. (.jpeg, .png, .eps, .tiff)

THE PROCESS

  1. You ask me a question here detailing what you want in a logo, be sure to include: the text you want on the logo, colors, links of ideas, any other thoughts you may have and your email address. 
  2. If I can do it, I will send you a link to my order page
  3. You plunk down $40
  4. I get to designing and send it back to you within 72 hours
  5. You look it over, making sure things are spelled correctly and that the colors work well for you.
  6. I email you the finals
  7. You skip around joyfully because you just got an amazing CUSTOM logo for dirt cheap. 

RISKS
Be warned there are some risks involved. For $40 I am treating these logos as quick art commissions. Being a design professional, if given enough good details, I can come up with a CUSTOM logo that will fit your needs. But once designed there will not be much back and forth. With the exception of misspellings and color issues you are subject to my choice. 

If you DO want to do some back and forth, NO WORRIES, I don’t mind. I’ll just need to add an additional $30 per hour spent.

I’m not going to do this often so take advantage of me while I need the cash!
