A Second Look at JC Alvarez’s “Hyper Heroes”

Jacob Thomas 01/08/2013 Reviews

About a month ago, we here at Comic took a look at a new comic book series under a Kickstarter campaign, Hyper Heroes written by JC Alvarez and his team based out of San Francisco, California. Hyper Heroes is truly a wonderful comic book series due to the fact of what the series has to offer. Let’s first reiterate what Hyper Heroes is about:

[box_light]”The concept “our readers are the heroes.” At first, Hyper Heroes was all about giving superpowers (in this case, hyperpowers) to my friends. This time we’ll do it massively, giving a character in the series to anyone that asks for that reward in Kickstarter, but even the series’ “main” characters are based on real people, with real personalities and normal lives. What defines Hyper Heroes is that we turn those normal lives into superhero adventures.”[/box_light]
