Before its highly anticipated release on Free Comic Book, HOPE Volume 1 (Source Point Press) gets its very own exclusive edition! A Kickstarter exclusive graphic novel, Hope explores the relationships that can be destroyed when becoming a hero.
Unbeknownst to her husband and daughter, Julie Lavelle secretly moonlights as a beloved costumed “ultra” known to the public as Hope. However, when a family outing takes an unexpected turn, she quickly learns how everything can change in an instant.
Here are 5 reasons we’re excited for HOPE Volume 1:
5) An Uncompromising Look!

HOPE takes an unflinching and uncompromising look at parenting, heroism, the law, the media, and even womanhood. K Lynn Smith explains the plot to Free Comic Book Day, “It’s about a superhero who finds herself in a situation she can’t punch her way out. It blurs the line between good and evil and tests the limits of what one could do and what one should do when things go to hell.
4) The Kickstarter Exclusive!
The Kickstarter campaign gives backers the entire first six issues of mini-series collected into one gorgeous edition. Through this Kickstarter campaign, readers can pre-order the entire first arc almost two months before the series is released in a monthly single-issue format.
3) The Villain Reward!

Because Villain Media roots for the bad guys, we definitely are excited about the Wanted Villain pledge. Get the “Mother” Collected Edition and readers will be illustrated as a villainous Ultra in a 8×10 vertical “Wanted: Rogue Ultra” poster template fit for framing! Pick your one superpower and your favorite color, then let Smith do the rest in a custom commission: the pledger will be designed as a villainous Ultra, based on a photo you send her.
2) Haunted High-Ons!
I’m a huge fan of Twiztid Haunted High-Ons! I’m also excited to get my hands on The Darkness Rises #1! I cannot wait to read what writer Dirk Manning has in store for HOPE.
