Today only, you can pick up all three issues of Campaigners FREE of charge, on me. So please, please, please go vote and then reward yourselves with some free comics.

(It still has the price on them, but when you click on them the gumroad link will show them at $0.)

Please vote, and please keep in mind that if you can honestly say the outcome of this vote will not dramatically effect you, you are extremely privileged. There are people fro whom this election could be a literal life-or-death matter. LGBTQ, POC, poor and low-income, especially women.

And please don’t forget the down-ballot. Senator, representatives, and so-on. These people make so many of the decisions that will directly effect you and the people around you. Please don’t ignore that.

So go vote, and then enjoy some free comics! Thanks!


Campaigners issue 3 available now!

Hey, so I’ve been so busy posting on all the social media there is about Campaigners issue 3 being out I forgot to mention it here!

That’s okay, you guys are smart, I’m sure you figured it out!

Anyway, you can grab it over in the digital store now. I’ll leave the preview up for a little bit, but it’ll probably come down soon, so I wouldn’t wait on that.

Campaigners issue 3 release date!

Hey everyone! If you’ve been waiting for issue 3, the wait is (almost) over! We’ll be releasing on September 7th. a week from this Wednesday. So keep your eyes peeled on this space.

We’re all extremely proud of this issue, it’s the best so far, and easily the most intense thing I’ve ever written. MJ is crushing it on art, as always, and she ups her game this time around. Everyone’s put so much into this book, and it really shows.

And a reminder, the free preview comic that’s currently available will only be up until the full issue comes out. So if you want to dip your toe, you’ve got about a week left to do so.

See you in a week!

Campaigners Review Roundup

Hey everyone! The reviews are in, and we’re a hit!

Okay, well we’ve only got a few reviews, but they all seem to be enjoying the book. Take a look:

“If you have ever found yourself frustrated with the state of current day politics then this is a comic that may speak to you.” Gregory Brothers, Rogues Portal

Campaigners has the sort of outlandish premise you’d find in a cult SciFi movie and I like it.” Ian Carter, Nerd Span

Campaigners provides readers with critique of America’s shortcomings. It does this while entertaining and reminding readers that change is possible, and the result is a comic series well-worth reading.” Erica, Project Nerd

There you have it! Thanks to everyone who’s taken a look at the books so far, please let your friends know where to find us!

And if you happen to write for a news site, or wish to do a review on your blog or elsewhere, you can hit me up on twitter @BrendanHykes, or e-mail me at, and I’ll be happy to send you review copies of the first two issues.

We’re still hard at work on issue three. Unfortunately it won’t be out until sometime in August, due to some personal issues on the team. But, we will have a preview coming out sometime this month to tide you over.

And you’ve probably noticed by now that the indiegogo campaign was not successful, which is a disappointment, but not necessarily the end of the line for us. We still plan to finish out the series, even if it takes a bit longer! So buy the issues if you haven’t already, and tell all your friends how much you like it!


Campaigners on indie gogo!!

Hey everyone!

We’re moving forward on issue 3, with art coming in from MJ every day. In the meantime, I have a favor to ask.

We’ve launched another indie gogo campaign, this one is to raise funds to complete issues 4 and 5. These issues will close out the series. We’re offering some pretty cool rewards. Of course you can pick up the entire series if you haven’t already checked out the first two issues, there’s also some exclusive “behind the scenes” materials, a handwritten short story, and some other interesting rewards.

I’m extremely happy with how the first two issues have turned out, and the third looks like it’s going to be the best issue yet. I’m super-excited about where the series is going, but we can’t get this done without your help!

So please take a look, share the link around, and back if you can. Every little bit helps!


Some New Comics in the Store

There are now two new comics in the digital store:

Campaigners #2

Kydra and Bee both find themselves caught up in the middle of the backlash from Kyd’s rant suddenly going viral. But while Kyd wishes it would just go away, Bee wants to use the sudden notoriety.

Anonymous Nancy #3

Nancy spent months as a prisoner in Chile before breaking out. But what really happened? Find out in this issue!

So go check them out! Hope you enjoy!

And if you’re in the Pittsburgh area you can come see me at 3 Rivers Comic Con being held at Century III Mall, I’ll be at table 47 in Artist’s Alley. Come by and say hi!
