Tides of Hope

Supanova Pop Culture Industries is proud to be publishing a collectable, limited edition comic-book, written and illustrated by some of the world's finest creators, to benefit Queensland flood-relief charity activities!

The special one-off 36 page comic, limited to 1000 copies, 'Tides of Hope' is the local comic-book industry's response to the tragedy. Contributors include internationally and locally acclaimed creators including upcoming Supanova guests Chris Claremont (the writer of 'Uncanny X-Men' for 17 consecutive years, 'Wolverine') and artist Greg Capullo ('Spawn').

Inspired by Sydney based comic-book writer Christopher Sequeira, who co-edited the comic and contributed a story illustrated by hotshot Marvel Comics artist Leinil Francis Yu, the comic became reality through his and the combined efforts of Art Director and contributor, Tim McEwen, Publisher and Supanova Event Director, Daniel Zachariou, and all the other amazingly talented individuals who provided their time and art; 47 creators in all!

100% of proceeds from its $10 cover price go to charity while an auction of all the artwork, kindly donated by the illustrators, will ultimately be added to that pool of funds with comic-art collector, dealer and expert Royd Burgoyne also donating his time and expertise to do so.

Claremont, Capullo, Sequeira, Taylor, Wilson, McKenny, McEwen and many other contributors are attending the Brisbane and Melbourne expos and will be able to personally sign copies.
