Patriot-1 graphic novel seeks funding on Kickstarter

Kevin Powers’ Kickstarter campaign for the graphic novel “Patriot-1″ has three days remaining to raise its $10,000 budget.

What’s the story? Here’s the description:

Patriot-1 is the story of Staff Sergeant Ken Baker, a Delta Force operator who is the lone survivor of an attack in Afghanistan. Upon escaping captivity, he finds himself embroiled in a conspiracy that results in a team from the CIA’s Special Activities Division seeking his help to unravel the mystery of “Operation Quisling.”

As the war in Afghanistan has all but ended, the conspiracy reveals a new threat, one that prompts Baker to make a unique statement in “super-heroic” fashion. 

Gritty and realistic, the action-packed story not only incorporates real-world weapons, vehicles and technology but also features a unique cast of characters playing major roles throughout.

I’ve read the preview and the comparison of “Captain America meets Tom Clancy” felt apt. (I also was reminded of some of the modern “G.I. Joe” comics.)

See more art below and check out the preview at Kickstarter.
