Supa Strikas - the best-selling comic you've never heard of.

Supa Strikas #1 CoverWhile a lot of you have already tuned out the whole 'World Cup' thing since America's team got eliminated, rest assured that you are in the minority in a global sense.

Soccer (or, as the rest of the planet calls it, Football) is a Really Big Thing world-wide. And sure enough, when something is as popular as soccer is on such a consistent basis, media will form around it. In fact, over a million copies of a comic book series based on soccer are published every month. Every month. Chew on that for a few minutes. American comic books are considered 'blockbusters' if they sell one tenth of that.

But what is this comic, you ask? It is Supa Strikas, a series about a team of soccer heroes with an international cast, its members hailing from (you guessed it) all the places of the world where soccer is huge (so no, there's no American on the Supa Strikas team). It's a slick publication from a South African company, who has also produced an animated series and all manner of additional tie-ins to the Strikas.

Of course, like any good sports team, the Supa Strikas have sponsors. And you can see the logos of these real life companies all over the Supa Strikas comic, whether they be billboards in the background to logos literally printed on the Strikas' uniforms. It's a nice, realistic touch... and assuredly gives the publisher even more cash to keep the ball rolling (so to speak).

A LOT of people around the world get into this comic book, selected episodes of which you can find on the publisher's web site - for free! So go check out Supa Strikas - you can get a free sample or so to get the feel for it. And rest assured, it's no Kickers, Inc. or NFL Superpro.

Thankfully.
