Here at FM, we absolutely love comic books, conventions, and cosplaying… so how could we not share this awesome Kickstarter project with you guys??

From showrunners Paul DeNigris and Steve Briscoe, ZERO COMPLEX is a comedy web series about two ragtag groups of cosplayers who get caught up in a real life comic adventure. I mean, how fun does that sound? Speaking for myself, there have been plenty of times in my life that I’ve pretended to be a superhero or daydreamed about really going out there and solving some crimes/putting away some bad guys. Take that innate desire and add to it the intricate, badass, detailed, and sometimes-sexy costumes that today’s Cosplay community comes up with and you’ve got a potential hit web series.

ZERO COMPLEX is currently in development and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its first season. To get a better sense of the style of the show and a look at the team behind it, check out the video embedded below.

As someone who sees a lot of Kickstarter projects, I can attest that this team’s talent and production value is far above average for independent projects. And as a fellow geek, convention-goer, and superhero enthusiast, I absolutely love the concept. Especially after seeing some of the concept art they’ve come up with (art by Evan Sprague and Stephen Failla).

Still not convinced? They’re offering some awesome rewards to their backers. If you have deep enough pockets, you can even be an Executive Producer on the series (that’s IMDB official, folks) or get one of the professionally made costumes used in the show! Here’s the full rundown of what your pledge could get you:
