“Heroes Of Homeroom C” tells the tale of Nicola and Albert Hathaway, twin 12 year old, African-American superheroes, who lose their powers and get sent back to public school to try and jumpstart a “normal life”. But even in the small town paradise of Tranquil, Massachusetts, the kids find themselves caught up in danger and excitement.
In Volume One, Nicola and Albert face off against a young wizard named Damien LeVey. He and his mother have recently moved to Tranquil following his parents’ divorce. Damien enacts a desperate plan, filled with dark magic, that he thinks will let him return to live with his father, a not-too-successful west coast supervillain.
Written by Anthony Ruttgaizer and illustrated by Carlos Granda, the project features colours and letters by Fred C. Stresing and a cover by veteran comic book artist Lee Moder. The 76-page story will first be released in both print and digital format to supporters of the Kickstarter campaign in late-summer 2017. A wider print release to comic book shops and other brick-and-mortar booksellers is in the works for later in the year.
