Can an Indie Comic Make it? Superman artist Jon Bogdanove strikes out on his own with "Strongman"
Veteran DC and Marvel comic artist Jon Bogdanove, most famous for his work in the “Death of Superman” series and for creating the character ‘Steel’ that was made into a movie staring Shaquille O’Niell (a HUGE comic fan), has struck out on his own with a Kickstarter.com campaign to create a graphic novel through fan pre-sales and investments. Non-comic aficionados may recognize his work from the set of ‘Roseann’ where comic fan John Goodman had a Superman poster by Bogdanove on the set for several seasons. The Strongman Project co-created with his son, video game director Kal-El Bogdanove, and writer Chris Faiella, generated immense interest at the San Diego comic con and La Mole in Mexico and fans have been tweeting madly since it was announced. But is fan interest enough in this day of high stakes publishing and mega-franchises? The fans are hoping so as the Kickstarter campaign comes to a close.
