A sophomore enrolled in ASU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, Ronald Martin, has created his own superhero and written and illustrated a full-color comic book that features his good-guy character named “All-Star,” who takes on villains and bad guys and keeps the world safe.

Now, after drawing multiple panels of artwork and having written an exciting story, Martin’s Herculean hurdle is to have the comic book published. He has established a "Kick-Start" funding page to raise the $6,000 needed to publish a first-print run of at least 300 limited-edition copies.

"Ever since I was a kid, I was fascinated with superheroes beginning with Spider Man," Martin said from an art studio in the Tullibody Fine Arts Hall. "I have now completed my own full length comic book or as the professional art-set calls it, a graphic novel."

Martin's chief advocate, Professor Nathaniel Allen, says the Montgomery native’s work is world-class.
