ANTHEM by Roy Thomas! The Sixth Issue at Last! Now on Kickstarter!

It’s the return of the young heroes of Project Anthem in the long-awaited 6th issue of the alternate reality World War II superhero series Anthem by Roy Thomas, Benito Gallego, and Rob Jones from Heroic Publishing.


In a world where America stands on the verge of defeat in World War II, the last best hope for freedom rests in the hands of the young heroes of PROJECT: ANTHEM!

Roy Thomas, Benito Gallego, and Rob Jones are hard at work on a brand-new sixth issue of ANTHEM, but we need your help to make it happen. Every dollar you contribute to this crowd funding effort on Heroic’s Kickstarter campaign will bring us that much closer to getting this issue into print.

In the first five issues of Anthem, we were introduced to the seven superpowered young heroes of Project: Anthem, including “Stonewall” Jackson, Dawns Earlylight, Bombburst, Liberty, “Rockets” Redglare, and the twins Stars and Stripes. And we were also introduced to their mentor, the mysterious Agent 76.

These heroes exist in an alternate reality, where access to alien technology gave the Axis powers the ability to roll over the Allied forces, conquering Europe and the Far East. Only the United States now stand against the Axis. But even in America the situation is dire. The Japanese Empire has invaded in the West. Nazi Germany has invaded in the East. Only the center of the country still holds.

The young heroes of Project: Anthem are America’s best hope of turning the tide.

But there may be a traitor in their ranks!

Roy Thomas has written the story. Benito Gallego has completed the pencils. And Rob Jones has begun working on the inks. Here’s a peek at what has been done have so far:
