The day has arrived! Blackwood State by creator Ivan O'Neill, colorist Kara Zisa, and editor R.J. Huneke is being published by POWkabam and Pentian in 2015 and a crowdfunding campaign is now live and underway to gain the funds needed to attend comic conventions across the US!
The 3 issue mini-series will be in print and eBook! Be sure to head to the page on the Pentian crowdfunding web site to see all of the exclusive perks for backers of this great work.
There will be variant covers, there will be signed copies, coffee mugs, tee's, and handwritten letters from TA Gwen of Blackwood State University, and even a special comic designed superficially for the contributor. Using a seven word sentence and a picture, O'Neill will create a 1 page comic about the contributor (and end up being totally ridiculous with it)!
All backers also share in a portion of the books' royalties, so you can even make a few bucks on your investment into the next great Adult Swim-esque comic.
Do not miss out on all of the ridiculously funny storylines from a creator who is a huge fan of Rick and Morty and Family Guy!

The first official publication of POWkabam will be a graphic novel by author/artist Ivan O'Neill titled Blackwood State, and published in conjunction with Pentian - an imprint of Lantia, LLC - here. It will be released in serialized form with three 24-25 page issues in the coming months of 2015.
For Blackwood State, O'Neill calls on a notorious state college and the life of a young lady struggling to live in a world that has no idea how not to crap on those that value the study of English writing. Alongside her fellow literary comrades, Guinevere Katz must attempt to keep her sanity and her grade as she survives one of the most obnoxious experiences of her academic career . . . and her professional career . . . and her life as a sentient being.
Calling on father Bill Shakespeare, as her god, and Falstaff as her inner muse and bartender, Gwen's deteriorative, drunken English career is a journey that seems perennially poised on the brink of disaster. Just how the hell does one make a living with a degree in English anyway?
The debut of Blackwood State hit the New York Comic Con October 9-12 2014 with a 4 page print preview issue # 0! And it sold out!
