Support the IDC # 3 Kickstarter!
by Joshua H. Stulman
We are proud to announce the next issue of Israeli Defense Comics!
We have created a Kickstarter to help support the printing costs of Israeli Defense Comics # 03.
The artwork and production for Israeli Defense Comics # 3 is 100% Complete! The comic book is a Full 30 pages, with a beautiful cover inked by Marvel and DC legendary artist, Joe Rubinstein (Infinity Gauntlet, Wolverine).
If funding is successful, Israeli Defense Comics # 03 will begin shipping in mid May 2018.
You can find progress updates here as well as on facebook.
Israeli Defense Comics # 03 features a team up between Magen: The Shield of Israel and Al Wiesner’s super-hero, Shaloman.
The story begins with the resurgence of the Black Knights, a group of bad guys that supposedly ceased operations decades ago when they were stopped by Shaloman.
Now they’re back and Shaloman is nowhere to be found. The Black Knights case leads Magen across continents to the United States to discover their nefarious plot and who is responsible for their resurgence!
Israeli Defense Comics # 3 also includes a real life fact page that helps provide some educational information that inspired the events in the story.
So Who Is Shaloman?
Shaloman was created by Al Wiesner and published from 1988-2013 in over 40 comics. Al Wiesner received a San Diego Comic Con Inkpot Award in 2010 for his publishing effort. Shaloman holds a special place in my heart because Shaloman # 1 from 1988 was one of my first comics as a child and it is an honor to be able to include the character in this comic book.
The premise for Israeli Defense Comics # 3 began when I discovered a 10 Page unpublished Shaloman story by Al Wiesner created in 1983. Originally I wanted to publish this story as a back up feature in Israeli Defense Comics. However instead, I crafted a story using Magen that takes place in Modern day, incorporating Wiesner’s original artwork as a flashback sequence in this all new adventure.
We have some great reward opportunities, which you can see to your right. These include: Original Artwork Commissions of a superhero of your choice, and Signed comics, including some very special issues signed by Shaloman Creator Al Wiesner.
We also have some of the original artwork from the comic book as well as the original cover!
