I.C.U. had the chance to talk with Robert Pisko about his current campaign - Clay-Man's One-shot and Crossover - Now funding on Indiegogo
Your campaign on Indiegogo actually features two stories. Can you give us the rundown on what you are crowd funding?
Certainly! I am crowdfunding a futuristic superhero comic I've been doing work on for 2 years! Featuring mutants, criminals, cool future stuff! And the kinda stuff you would want, if you like good old fashioned superhero content! The first story is the one-shot comic, where Clay is getting food for night time patrol when he encounters The Backstreet Bombers, a gang of teenage misfits who's only fun is causing mischief! Clays gotta put a stop to them and fast!
The crossover comic features him and Demon Hunter Raven, where the duo team up to fight and defeat their villains together, it's a short but sweet crossover comic!
Where did the inspiration for Clay Man come from?
Mainly came from a few comics and characters we know. Main source of inspiration for me was Spider-Man 2099, Batman Beyond, and The Maxx. Later I got into My Hero Academia and that heavily got me inspired to finalize Clays costume after I saw the main character Deku's costume.
Now for comic creator inspirations I chalk that up to Brett Mcgowann, Cody Fernandez, Karl O'Rowe, and Robert Livingstoon
Why set the story in Wisconsin?
I think mainly because I just really liked the state (And not because I'm a huge cheese/packers fan.xD) I wanted to set it in a fictional city in a real life state to make it easier on myself as well and again I chose Wisconsin for it.
What do you see as the future for Clay Man?
For this year I see hopefully Issue #1 is partially done, I have a gofundme at the moment people can look up to help me get at least 5-10% of the comic drawn up and lettered!
But overall future? I don't think I'm EVER going to stop with this character for a long time. Maybe take a break every now and then to work on my other WIP comics (SINS, Pony Warriors, Dimensional Warriors) but yeah my main priority at the moment is Clay-Man.
