From the guys who brought you Twisted Dark, Tpub have launched a kickstarter to bring us a popular web comic to print called Turncoat

So What's it about?

Turncoat follows the story of Duke. Duke is the world's worst superhero assassin. He straight up sucks at killing superheroes. He always needs a supervillain partner to help him on his hits, he's constantly fending off his ex-wife-and-rival-assassin, Sharon, and the agency only ever seems to send him after d-list loser superheroes. But it's okay, Duke's gonna show everyone he's got what it takes by taking out the world's number one superhero team - The Liberty Brigade. You know...once he figures out how to.

See what you can earn from pledging to the kickstarter here:

The creators

Written by Tpub's Ryan O'Sullivan from London and drawn by Plaid Klaus from New York in 2014, they haven't met but the distance hasn't stopped an amazing partnership to bring this amazing story. Turncoat is a collection of the entire six-issue run of the popular webcomic of the same name (www.turncoatcomic.com).
