Hello, and welcome to The Electric Team! My name is Leighton Connor, and I am the creator of such fine comics as Laser Brigade (www.laserbrigade.thecomicseries.com). In 2013, I took my daughter Abigail to the Cincinnati Comicon. She was five at the time. We walked around, took in the sights, and talked to various artists. Eventually we ended up at a booth that sold used toys. For a low, low price we ended up with three action figures from the 80’s.

When we got home we sat down to play with those new-to-us toys. We’d already cast the various toys at home into different roles, so I was curious if these newcomers were going to be good guys or bad guys. Abi told me that they were a team, called The Electric Team, and they were good guys, and they lived on another world. I thought that sounded great. Over the following months we played with those toys, and introduced new ones, and the Electric Team mythology evolved and expanded.

At some point I started to think it might be fun to make an Electric Team comic. This in itself is nothing unusual, since I fantasize all the time about making different comics. But one day, while Abi and I were at the playground, it clicked in my head, and I knew exactly how the Electric Team comic should start. I talked to Abi about it and we worked out the opening story.

I wrote a script for the first 26 pages and set out to find an artist. Fortunately, I found Samantha Albert, who did wonderful character designs, and then exceeded our expectations in bringing the story to life.

Sam, Abi, and I have all worked hard to bring you The Electric Team, and we hope you enjoy it. There will be updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; let us know what you think!
