Salvation Sam


Into every generation comes a hero... This guy just isn't it.

The Story

"With great super-villains comes a great superhero career."

Or so believes Salvation Sam. Led by his somewhat misguided belief to reach the much desired pinnacle of the superhero pyramid, Sam otherwise struggles in a world where being super doesn't make you special and being a hero is a lot harder than it looks.

So imagine trying to be a Super-Hero!

The Publication

Conceived during a particularly indulgent dinner at a Pizza Hut one night in early 2009, creators and writers Ryan Mennen and Alexander Zhao were sure that their idea had absolutely no future nor potential whatsoever. But they were bored and had nothing else in life so they decided to develop the idea for a comic anyways.

After much hard work procrastinating and not actually doing anything, the duo finally launched a 30-page black & white preview edition of Salvation Sam #01 in December 2010 under Jove Pater Media. A coloured edition of the preview was released in December 2011.

The Grammar Nazi


Every hero is defined by his greatest enemies.
