Cape and Cowl Comics and Collectibles

Many times, too often, we see the big guy picking on the little guy. My name is Jay, and I am the director of this show I call Cape & Cowl. Stepping out from behind the curtain for a moment to say I will not stand for bullies.

I will stand with the bullied, to make sure they are not bullied again. I get a fiery passion to defend those who can not defend themselves, and want you to know you have a safe space with me.
