About the Comic:

Daniel is a 30 something bachelor who lives in a world where the mild-mannered receive little attention. Each day constantly speeds by and all he sees in his immediate future in an eternal state of bachelorhood and entrapment by the company’s smart phone.

One day his life takes a weird turn when he wakes up with a random assortment of powers. The list of powers grows and Daniel never knows when they appear or disappear. None of the powers are particularly helpful to him and they find ways to inconvenience him at every turn. As a matter of fact, we see his life spiral into sheer chaos as he maneuvers in our unforgiving, modern world as he tries to figure out what made him this way.

Daniel’s story is very relatable in a sense. It forces us to take a look at our own hectic lives and realize that we all have something that makes us “Super” but we never attain the status of Super Hero because we tend to see “Super” as a colossal burden.

OPEN FOR LOGO COMMISSIONS!

Hey everyone!

I’m getting ready for my first 2014 convention circuit and need to save up some funds to get Not So Super comics debuted properly. That means getting comics printed, banners designed, flyers, cards and trinkets. You know the deal. 

Let’s be honest, I’m jealous of you awesome artists. I, being a writer, can’t commission out that skill to raise funds, but I can do some pretty mean graphic design. So I want to offer up my logo making skills at the unheard of price of $40 to reach my funding goal.

image

ABOUT ME:
When I devour comics, I wash them down with a tall glass of design. I’m a graphic/web designer by trade (so no worries about getting quality logos) and also the founder/writer for Not So Super Comics

WHAT YOU’LL GET
You’ll get your final CUSTOM logo in color and black & white in 4 different file formats to fit your needs. (.jpeg, .png, .eps, .tiff)

THE PROCESS

  1. You ask me a question here detailing what you want in a logo, be sure to include: the text you want on the logo, colors, links of ideas, any other thoughts you may have and your email address. 
  2. If I can do it, I will send you a link to my order page
  3. You plunk down $40
  4. I get to designing and send it back to you within 72 hours
  5. You look it over, making sure things are spelled correctly and that the colors work well for you.
  6. I email you the finals
  7. You skip around joyfully because you just got an amazing CUSTOM logo for dirt cheap. 

RISKS
Be warned there are some risks involved. For $40 I am treating these logos as quick art commissions. Being a design professional, if given enough good details, I can come up with a CUSTOM logo that will fit your needs. But once designed there will not be much back and forth. With the exception of misspellings and color issues you are subject to my choice. 

If you DO want to do some back and forth, NO WORRIES, I don’t mind. I’ll just need to add an additional $30 per hour spent.

I’m not going to do this often so take advantage of me while I need the cash!
