ABOUT

Our Story
Athlitacomics was started by NFL Player Israel Idonije to unite, entertain, and engage both comic enthusiasts and sports fans. We are the first company to offer a high-level blend of professional athletics and super-heroic mythology. Athlitacomics creates and develops unique comic content, comic properties, and related merchandise in the merged niche market of comics and sports.

What We Do
We do comics! In development are many of our creator-owned projects as well as custom, work-for-hire projects. Our current Athlitacomics branded rollout includes The Protectors and Sports Heroes.

The Protectors is a comic book series about a chosen group of athletes who learn they are gifted with more than elite athletic ability. It is an epic adventure perfectly uniting sports action with classic superhero excitement. The first story arc consists of issues #’s 1-5.

Sports Heroes showcase the extraordinary capabilities of top professional athletes through the platform of comic artistry. Sports Heroes capture the elite abilities that make our favorite athletes “larger than life” – their speed, strength, power, and acuity. Our Quarterback series is currently available with much more to come!

Our team has a strong background in and a passion for sports and comics. We are thrilled to share our amazing art and incredible stories, and we look forward to sharing upcoming news of Athlitacomics’ ventures and partnerships.

The Protectors

Conceived by Israel Idonije, lifelong comic fan and 11-year NFL veteran, The Protectors is the first release from Athlitacomics. Idonije selected writer Ron Marz and artist Bart Sears to bring his vision to the finish line. The Protectors combines sports action and superhero adventure as never seen before.

The Protectors are a chosen handful of professional athletes who learn they are blessed with more than elite athletic ability. Football superstar Isaac Chike seems to have the perfect life of success, wealth and fame. But this life is turned upside down when he discovers his true purpose. Isaac learns he is destined to be one of The Protectors, a small group of gifted heroes blessed with miraculous powers. Now Isaac and a handful of other star athletes (baseball’s Miguel Montiero, basketball’s Douglass Larter, soccer’s Danielle Peters and hockey’s Gerard Rioux) must choose between the lives they know and the greater good of protecting mankind from enemies intent on enslaving the world.

Athlitacomics did a limited-edition launch of issues #0 and #1. The initial five-issue miniseries will introduce the characters, concepts and conflicts, recounting the origin of The Protectors, as well as their first major battle with the Dissenters.

Digital downloads of The Protectors issues #0 and #1 are available for purchase on Groupees. They are also in all 80 locations of the Chicago Public Library.
