It’s groundbreaking for comic books,” said industry-veteran Wild Bill of Youtube channel Comic Book Geezers. “The whole scenario is something that’s never been addressed before, that I’m aware of. I’ve never seen anything like this in comics, so I think this is pretty cool.”

The series has also attracted the attention and support of world renowned comic book creator Chuck Dixon, who’s legendary Batman and Punisher runs, for DC Comics and Marvel Comics respectively, are widely regarded as some of the very best. After coming across the Kickstarter campaign for Here Comes CALICO #2, Dixon recommended the campaign to his social media audience, an act that led to the campaign achieving its funding goal.

He decides to enter a prestigious boxing tournament, and as he trains, his new Brooklyn neighbors are unaware of the double-life he leads. On choice evenings, Hector Gil becomes the CALICO, to pay unfriendly visits to people who abuse and kill animals. He is supported by a varied network of technically savvy and resourceful data professionals, all bent on making sure CALICO completes his missions without a hitch.
