Every once in a while you come across a talent who, in your gut, you know is going to explode.
Seriously, who wouldn’t want to write or draw the adventures of Batman or Spider-Man?
But, more than anything else, creators want to create.
And Vito Delsante is a creator you should keep your eye on.
Coming in January (and launching this week at New York Comic Con) is his book, World War Mob (which I’ve read the first issue and it’s pretty awesome) and today, Vito launched his Kickstarter for his new project, Stray, with artist Sean Izaakse.
Stray is the story of Rodney Weller, formerly known as the Rottweiler, sidekick to the great Doberman…his mentor.
It’s been five years since he’s worn a costume and taken to the rooftops, but he’s back to solve the murder of the person who trained him. In the end, if he survives, he’ll have to decide if he wants to take over his mentor’s mantle, or become something…someone, new.
The story is about redemption and finding your own identity in the world…about honoring your past, but forging a new present.
After the jump check out Vito’s Kickstarter video and you can find a link to support this project.
I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
