Jonathan Coulton and Greg Pak have combined their Internet and real-world superhero abilities into the most amazing thing: a comic book written by Pak based on characters from Coulton’s song. They’re using crowdfunding to make it all happen and, just a few hours in, have nearly reached their goal; see their Kickstarter campaign. They have stretch targets to come. I spoke with Jonathan a few weeks ago for the podcast: Episode #16: Baby Got Back Catalog.
I wrote up the launch for BoingBoing, where you can see some of the great early artwork that will go into the comic as well.
