The PaperFilms team of Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts have just launched their 9th, that’s right, 9TH Kickstarter campaign in HYPE. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1397702842/hype-by-palmiotti-gray-pina-nocera
HYPE is a 52 page action packed thriller with heart that offers a twist of the traditional superhero genre. It is a graphic novel written by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti featuring the art of JAVIER PINA and and ALESSIA NOCERA and design and lettering by BILL TORTOLINI.
Noah Haller is HYPE, a last resort secret weapon for the United States Military, a man who can only be awake for a single hour on any given day. The genetic and medical enhancements that give him his superhuman abilities force him to undergo complete cellular regeneration – like being rebuilt or reborn every 23 hours. Hype is a wonderfully flawed character. His massive intellect lacks experience, context and nuance. He is initially like a computer full of information and capable of solving complex problems, but lacking in emotion and abstract thought to solve small ones.
Hype responds to sensory aspects of his environment with indifference. He has attention to detail but misses the “big picture” and social cues.Being awake only one hour a day leaves very little time to cultivate an emotional relationship with anyone including his handlers. That changes when he meets Amanda Marr, a brilliant scientist and psychologist hired to help Hype find a balance between being super and being human.Unfortunately for Hype and Amanda, his training is cut short when a shadowy terrorist group is poised to unleash a deadly pathogen that threatens to destabilize the world governments.
We’d love to see you involved in the campaign!

Welcome to 2016 folks! The entire PaperFilms team is looking forward to a fun and exciting new year. We’ve got lots of new and cool projects in the works, continuing to push forward on some of our existing titles and offerings and best of all, the continued support of all our great fans!!
As we start the new year, we are happy to announce we’ve been slowly pulling in some different products for our store offerings. We have a limited number of some of the items but we really encourage you to check some of them out. There are samplings of Harley Quinn, Starfire and Harley Quinn and Power Girl variants and signed books; our recently PaperFilms only exclusive variant to SuperZero #1 (which we are happy to scribble dialog and text on the cover) and finally, something that doesn’t happen too often, we’ve got some limited AMANDA CONNER original art available. That’s right, Amanda was finally able to provide a small offering of trading card art on our exclusive PaperFilms trading card sets. She took the time to draw some wonderful images for people to be able to snag her work.

Your laughter, praise, thanks, hugs, smiles, photos and just wonderful thoughts for the entire team means the world to us. We couldn’t ask for a more dedicated and supportive group of fans!!
