Toronto DJs could be the superheroes of tomorrow

Superheroes are a lot like DJs. We're not sure where they come from or what purpose they serve, but they seem pretty confident in their abilities and function in society, and once in a while they save the day. Slash night. (Last night.)

A Toronto graphic novel project is onto this correlation. Set here after a "Great War," The Future Prophecy features two sisters (one of whom is a DJ of course) and have (surprise!) magical powers. The comic "transforms Toronto into a dystopian urban battleground" - and comes with original music. If you're not sold on the local tie-in and electro twist, take a look at the artwork here.

The project is now on Kickstarter with a goal of a hefty $25,000. This will pay for press and the release of the next four issues (plus Japanese translations), the recording of tracks for each, and music videos. Rewards include some awkward DJ pics (who doesn't need more awkward DJ pics in their home), t-shirts, and a Pioneer DJ controller.
