Writer Scott A. Bachmann and artist Scott D.M. Simmons (KNIGHTS OF P.O.W.E.R.), with cover artist Marisa Livingston are proud to announce that the first issue of OUR SUPER MOM is now available in print, just in time for issue two to begin online at http://www.oursupermom.com/.
OUR SUPER MOM follows the story of Liza, the super hero known as Paragon – who has retired from crime fighting and world saving to take on the more challenging task of raising her family. It’s not easy being famous, or giving up her amazing heroic adventures, but it’s no easier raising two children, and Liza’s greatest challenges lie ahead of her. Although her duties as Paragon are never completely behind her, and Liza is still occasionally called to action, she’s saved the world enough times that now she’s putting her family first.
OUR SUPER MOM is the third comic from ScottComics, following on the heels of RAYMOND HARDCASE and LAWS OF MOTION. ScottComics is an independent comic publisher who has been on the scene since 2010. Writer/Publisher Scott Bachmann has been attending the comic convention circuit promoting all three titles, along with artists Mark Smith Jr. (RAYMOND HARDCASE) and Scott D.M. Simmons (OUR SUPER MOM). RAYMOND HARDCASE and OUR SUPERMOM are both published weekly at http://www.raymondhardcase.com/ and http://www.oursupermom.com/ respectively, and can also be found from the ScottComics home page at http://scottcomics.com/ (where you can also find the archives of the on-hiatus LAWS OF MOTION).
“In every super hero story the hero sacrifices everything to be the hero, and every parent sacrifices everything for their children, but what if you had to do both?” asks writer Scott Bachmann. “As kids, we all know that our mom is super, but what if she really was? I wrote OUR SUPER MOM to explore these themes and put them head-to-head, while making sure to have lots of fun along the way.”
OUR SUPER MOM #1 is a 20-page softcover comic for $3.50. It is available for purchase online via Indy Planet at http://www.indyplanet.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=6968 or in-person from ScottComics at any of their convention appearances. The online archive of OUR SUPER MOM can be found at http://www.oursupermom.com/.
The letter S can stand for many things, but in this case, it mainly stands for Scott. ScottComics is the brainchild of writer/publisher Scott Bachmann. The indie press publisher has been in existence since 2010, and focuses on comics that explore the heroes beneath the costumes. “People are people whether they have superpowers or not,” says Bachmann.
ScottComics currently publishes two comics, RAYMOND HARDCASE and OUR SUPER MOM. Archives for both comics can be located at http://scottcomics.com/ (where you can also find the archives of the on-hiatus LAWS OF MOTION). RAYMOND HARDCASE updates on Mondays, and OUR SUPER MOM updates every Friday.
