July 13, 2016

Los Angeles, CA. (July 11, 2016)  – Fresh Monkey Fiction is proud to announce another Kickstarter campaign for their retro-inspired action figure line Amazing Heroes.


“Thanks to over 300 devoted backers, we funded Amazing Heroes Wave 1 on Kickstarter back in late 2015,” Bill Murphy of Fresh Monkey Fiction says. “We’re super excited to see Amazing Heroe return with another great lineup that includes even more popular heroes!”


The Amazing Heroes Wave 2 collection features another selection of three creator owned characters: Mike Baron and Steve Rude’s Nexus, Mike Grell’s Jon Sable, and a cosmic version of Michael  Allred’s Madman. Also debuting are classic Golden Age heroes and villains American Crusader, Captain Future, Wonderman, Blackout and The Puzzler. As with the prior figures, this will be the first time many of them will become action figures.

Each retro-inspired Amazing Heroes figure stands 4.5″ tall and includes interchangeable “Artist Edition” backer cards with original art from comic book artists Michael Allred (Madman), Jamal Igle (Molly Danger, Supergirl), Simon Fraser (Doctor Who), Khoi Pham (X-Men), Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook), Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts), Will Rosado (G.I .Joe) and Mike Norton (BattlePug).

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
