By: Tony Cooper
BIRMINGHAM, U.K. - Jan. 14, 2016 - PRLog -- Science fiction author Tony Cooper is launching a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign on Monday 18th January for a comic book based on his literary creations.

"Powerless: Some Kind of Hero" is a 24 page, full-colour comic set in Britain and featuring characters taken from the self-published "Powerless" and "Killing Gods" superhero novels.

The comic is written and drawn by Tony Cooper himself and is set to launch at the Mancunicon SF convention on March 25th in Manchester.

The Kickstarter goal is a modest £600 for printing costs only, with reward tiers ranging from a digital copy of the comic, all the way to digital and physical copies of the comic and all four of his books.


The comic is a one-off, self-contained story based on characters and situations from the self-published superhero novels "Powerless" and "Killing Gods" -

"What would it be like to have incredible powers but not be able to tell anybody? You can't tell anybody, because if you did you would lose your job, your friends, your family would probably disown you, and you would more than likely end up in prison for concealing your abilities.

Hayley Turner is a policewoman by day, a teleporting Hero by night.

She hides her abilities from everyone she knows, unable (by law) to use them in public, and is growing frustrated.

At night, however, she gets to be someone else. Working alongside her mentor Martin (an old 90s Hero she saved from certain death), they target organised crime. He is the only person she can trust in, the only person she can talk to.

She finally has some sense of purpose, but is it enough to resolve all of the conflicts she hides inside herself?"


Tony Cooper was born and raised in Scotland. He studied Medicine before deciding to move into videogames for 16 years instead.

In 2013 he self-published his first novel, the superhero book "Powerless". This was followed by the sequel, "Killing Gods", in 2014. He has also released a short story collection "The Resurrection Tree and Other Stories", a science fiction comedy novella called "Higgs & Soap: Galaxy Delivery" and is currently working on a third book in the superhero series.
