Vigilante Comix is an independent comic book company started by Rob MacKinnon out of Calgary, Canada. As a life-long comics fan, Rob finally decided to take the plunge and write his own comic in 2015. The main character of his first comic is Deborah Daring, a perky private eye inspired by his wife. While Rob is an amateur artist himself, he quickly discovered that if he wanted to produce a timely comic book series he was going to need an established comic book artist to help him out. So after scouring the internet for the appropriate artist, Rob discovered Jae Korim, a professional comic book artist from Toronto, Canada. With the help of Rob's script and some preliminary artwork, Jae was quickly able to bring the Deborah Daring story to life!
After a three successful Kickstarter campaigns, Rob and Jae were able to independently publish the first three issues of
the Deborah Daring series, along with a comic book prequel to the movie Peelers. While the books looked pretty good, there was still something missing. After seeing some impressive colored art on a Facebook comic group page, Rob was able to hire German colorist Dennis Lehmann to recolor the series in time to produce a collected edition for the third Kickstarter campaign. Dennis has continued to color the Deborah Daring series and his vibrant palettes have definitely raised the quality of the books.
Rob had always dreamed about becoming a successful comic book creator and being able to write a diverse collection of stories. With his initial success on Kickstarter, he was able to make that dream a reality! He has since created over 17 comic books, and in 2021 his Hildebrand Valkyrie series was published by Caliber Comics and his Dancing with the Dragon series was published by Scout Comics. While being professionally published was immensely satisfying, it only made Rob want to do more! Currently, Rob is developing a kid-friendly series for Scoot! comics called, Carmen Courageous.
So as you can see, Rob and the crew at Vigilante Comix have big plans for the future! We have sincerely appreciated the support from our fans so far and hope we can count on you to support us in our future endeavors.
