The Power Posse gets ready for its Emerald City Comicon moment

Super Friends meets The Office?

That, in a nutshell, is how Seattle production company Moon Bullet Studios describes its new web series, The Collectibles. The ten-part series will officially debut on Sunday, April 1 as part of Emerald City Comicon in Seattle.

It’s a bit hard to describe The Collectibles, even after viewing the trailer. It’s a bit mock doc, significantly more superheros-meet-corporate-politics, and a lot parody.

Landon Salyer, director of operations and production for Moon Bullet, says part of what makes The Collectibles stand out is that it’s based on a a viewer supported, creator distributed model (not unlike that used by fan-financed video projects). The production’s website lists a fundraising goal of $42,000, of which $2,230 had been achieved as of this writing.

Salyer says The Collectibles will  have a ten episode season, with episodes released weekly, “though our episodes are ten minutes in length each which is about twice as long as the medium standard.”

“We’re aiming to deliver a dense burst of high quality, character driven content on a weekly basis,” he adds, “and we’ve received some amazing support from the Seattle and extended Northwest indie film community.”

The premiere is Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. as part of the 10th anniversary Comicon. Starting Monday, April 2, the series will be online with a new episode each Monday.  Here’s the preview:
