Amazing Heroes Trading Card Set

My buddy Christopher Irving is working on a Kickstarter campaign for a new trading card set featuring the heroes from the first wave of the successful action figure campaign for figures like Captain Action, Stardust and more!

As their press release notes:

Included are Golden Age characters like Stardust (drawn by Erik Larsen), Green Turtle (Sonny Liew), Daredevil (Mike Allred), and Silver Streak (Tim Seeley); also are ‘60s hero Captain Action (Phil Hester) and Mike Allred’s present-day Madman. The trading card set also includes a preview of Wave 2 characters, such as Wonderman by Dean Haspiel–with other artists announced and revealed throughout the campaign.





There’s also a special Captain Action pack of cards…


Just check out the campaign to read more of the perks and see if it is something you’d get a kick out of.


I’m still holding out for a trading card set dedicated to Fantagraphics Books’ OTHER great magazine of news and criticism.

Really excited for this one!

Although I’m not really interested in the cards, do you have a link to the action figures of these characters that you refer to in the post?

It’s funded, so I dunno if you can buy them outside of the Kickstarter Campaign (I imagine so, but I really dunno), but here is the Kickstarter Campaign for the action figures.
