I've always enjoyed comics with superheroes or kaiju or powerful, beautiful female protagonists with a side of humor. Somewhere in my mind I had the thought, "Why can't we have it all and mix in my other loves, anime and mythology?" And so Valkyrie Saviors was born! Check out the Kickstarter here.
After the wonderful success of Patriotika #1 by the most amazing (and patient) backers ever, I decided to give Valkyrie Saviors a go. It was a risk because it's not every day you see a comic about kaiju-sized Valkyries by night with a fun and sometimes silly college life by day.
The mythology of Valkyrie Saviors is a fictional blend of Norse and Greek mythology, with something different mixed in: the Zodiac. Most people aren't worshipping the Norse and Greek gods anymore, but you see them every day talking about their horoscopes. So if a god is given strength through worship and attention, wouldn't that mean the Zodiac gods would be among the strongest in modern times? And how would they coexist with Greek and Norse gods? They wouldn't, of course. They'd want to erase every trace of them.
And now it's up to the Valkyrie Saviors, with the help of the goddess Freyja and the ancient elemental dragons, to put a stop on the Zodiac while our heroines keep a social life, work multiple jobs, and date.
Only one Valkyrie is left to fight the Zodiac: Larissa the Tide Valkyrie! She has come to earth looking to recruit new Valkyries against the Zodiac Legion. First she has to deal with the huge, powerful and treacherous Shadow Valkyrie Iris who has slain other Valkyries! Will Larissa be able to handle the strongest of the Valkyries alone? She better, or this will be one short comic book series!
Please check out and or share or back the Valkyrie Saviors Kickstarter. We've already unlocked 13 stretch goals including metal trading cards, prints with art by comic book professionals such as Joe Benitez and Ryan Odagawa, prints from a photoshoot by cosplayers such as AZ Powergirl Cara Nicole and Amber Brite, and much more for anyone that backs a physical book or higher.
