Copycat cover

Creators: Cullen Brunn (Writer), Heath Amodio (Artist), and Todd Garner
Goal: $5,000
End Date: February 2, 2024
Goodies: A digital and/or physical copy of the novel and signed editions

NYT Bestselling writer Cullen Bunn and partner Heath Amodio team with Mortal Kombat producer Todd Garner for this action-packed, cerebral thriller!

Sarah is an ER nurse with the unique power to diagnose her patients with just one touch. Unfortunately, her power comes at a painful cost, as she suffers the same agony as those she cares for.

Copycat, at this time, has over 60 supporters and has raised over $3,000 on its campaign trail. With amazing artwork and an interesting story, it’s not hard to see why people want to back this campaign, especially considering Bunn has worked on popular projects like Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe. The comic is made for fans of Atomic Blonde and John Wick, as Zoop puts it, which leaves us at The Beat even more interested in its launch.
