Mark Texeira and 'A Hero's Death' seeking funds on Kickstarter

by Matthew Price Published: August 6, 2013

Artist Mark Texeira, who visited SoonerCon in June, is raising funds for “A Hero’s Death” through Kickstarter. “A Hero’s Death” is a 48 page graphic novel, hand painted by Texeira and written by Ricardo Sanchez (“Resident Evil,” “Legends of the Dark Knight”).

Here’s a description of the story from Kickstarter:

The Hero died twenty years ago trying to save a family in a building collapse, but the implications of her death still linger, especially for Laura, a young reporter who’s doing a story on the anniversary of the Hero’s death.

Texeira, known for art on Marvel Comics titles including “Ghost Rider” and “Wolverine” talked about “A Hero’s Death” in my Q&A with him at SoonerCon, and you can find out more about the book in Friday’s Weekend Look or at Kickstarter.

Kickstarter fundraising goes through Monday Aug 12, at 1:52am EDT.
