Joe Kelly comic
The Webbed Wonder and the Merc with a Mouth are teaming up for their first ongoing series EVER! It's action, adventure and just a smattering of (b) romance in this episodic epic featuring the WORLD'S GREATEST SUPER HERO and the star of the WORLD'S GREATEST COMICS MAGAZINE. Talk about a REAL dynamic duo!
When the pioneering "First Family in Space" takes a catastrophic wrong turn on their maiden voyage, they crash on a dangerous alien planet. Their 21st century know-how is useless against the harsh environment, and survival seems unlikely, until they meet a strange ally...a mysterious orphan boy who's short on temper but big on survival skills. This heartfelt adventure is the brainchild of Man of Action Entertainment (Big Hero 6, Ben 10) founder JOE KELLY (I KILL GIANTS, FOUR EYES) and lauded British cartoonist ILYA.
Synopsis: The Crime Syndicate of America's path of destruction across their parallel Earth continues when they invade the tiny nation of Modora! But the most powerful villains of Earth Two soon encounter resistance in the form of Lady Sonar, sole surviving member of the Justice Underground. Will the lone hero be enough to stop the CSA, or will their villainous ways rule the day?

Now Blaquesmith's adventure shifts into high gear in STEAMPUNK, a new CLIFFHANGER PRODUCTIONS ongoing series from writer/co-creator Joe Kelly (ACTION COMICS, X-Men, Deadpool) and artist/co-creator Chris Bachalo (THE WITCHING HOUR, DEATH: THE HIGH COST OF LIVING, Generation X), inked by Richard Friend (WILDCATS).

Something is terribly wrong with the world. But, what? Why is it that people get praised for insane behavior? Why is Bizarro the number one hero and Superman the villain who supposedly killed Lex, but oddly has no recollection. What has happened to the once half-sane world?
Part comedy, part crazy action, REMNANTS follows the adventures of a handful of novice heroes trying to get by in a world that berates and jeers at them. Led by the punctual (and pint-sized) Mant, the Remnants reflect the best and the weirdest that the Heroes Reborn universe has to offer: The noble but knee-high Panther Cub, the innocent yet buxom Super-Maxi Big Girl, the ignoble cosmic gnome Sterling, and the savagely hypersensitive Miss Thing. Our ragtag team of leftovers must make a name for themselves against a villain so dangerous, so diabolical, that his name can only be whispered... Well, that's not entirely true, but he is their mentor gone wrong, and his singing voice really reeeally stinks. His super-secret identity is just one of the many surprises you'll find crammed within the pages of a book built on the premise that nothing is sacred... especially not itself!

The world has gone horribly wrong. A waking nightmare where a totalitarian despot rules a devastated countryside. Where mutated animals walk like men... and enslaved humanity crawls to avoid its master's whip. This is a world where justice fell into the sea with the California coastline, and hope is blanketed in the pea-green mist that darkens the sky. A world in desperate need of a hero... a Rebel. Populated with characters both familiar and shocking, this book challenges expectations of mainstream super hero comics, and establishes a new breed of hero for the Marvel Universe. Expect a unique band of freedom fighters forging their own Trail of Tears through a gamma-irradiated desert the best way they can. No excuses asked for, none given. Expect the worst mankind has to offer bubbling to the surface of America, and spilling out over the godforsaken west. Expect a reluctant hero of a different breed. A man with the power to blaze his own trail, but just a man nonetheless.

And what if these same tiny atomic tools are programmed to spontaneously forge any weapon, vehicle, or object you can imagine? As a twelve-year-old boy... Youve got one hell of an imagination, and with it, youll either save the human race...Or utterly and completely destroy it.
