HAUNTING: On the Run hit its funding goal last Thursday night as the most funded HAUNTING campaign to date!

A big "THANK YOU!" to everybody who supported and helped spread the word about this campaign! HAUNTING was the first comic I ever worked on, and it has a very special place in my heart. I'm eternally grateful to all of the supporters who make the continuation of this series possible. And I can't wait for you all to read this exciting new issue!!!

Two Stretch Goals unlocked + a new Crossover Print
6 months ago – Mon, Apr 17, 2023 at 07:36:07 AM

Stretch Goals #1-3

Over the weekend, we managed to blow through our first two Stretch Goals!

All Backers will now receive the Indie Bundle Expansion Pass, adding five more books to the Digital bundle that you'll be receiving!

And all Physical Backers (backers having rewards shipped to them) will receive a Free HAUNTING Trading Card! We absolutely love our Trading Cards, and it's one of our favorite items to offer as Add-ons! If you're lucky, you might even pull a RARE HOLO FOIL CARD!

If we manage to hit $11,000 before the campaign ends later this week, we'll unlock yet another Stretch Goal: a new "TV Time" Art Print for all Physical Backers!

Next Stretch Goal!

The print features art by Cassio Ribeiro and was actually used as a Variant Cover all the way back for issue #2 of HAUNTING. But this Art Print has a twist - it's a re-color of that Variant Cover!

Help spread the word about the series to make sure we unlock this awesome new print!

Cross-Promotional Print

Ever heard of a nine-way crossover print? Well you're about to!

I'm privileged to be part of a group of extremely talented creators who regularly share ideas and shoot the breeze about all things comics. And it just so happens that for the first time in a long time, eight members of this collective will have Kickstarter projects live around the same time!

We're not crazy enough to say that you need to back all eight campaigns to get this print. So instead, we're going with half! If you back four or more of the campaigns pictured, you'll get this wonderful print for free! Digital backers will get a high-res digital file. Physical backers will get a physical copy.

The pictured campaigns are as follows (for those that aren't live yet, I've linked to either a Pre-launch Page or to the creator's Kickstarter profile): "Crossover Division", "Night Wolf", "Sunmaker", "In the Land of the Dragon", "Tart", "Carmilla Unbound", "Like Father, Like Daughter", and "HAUNTING"!

You can count on every one of these books being amazing because this is a group of creators who routinely challenge one another to innovate and create the best Kickstarter comics around! Hope you'll consider checking them out to secure this print!

More Kickstarters

Let's end off with a couple of Kickstarters you should definitely check out!

Tart 15 - Deal With the Devil

We just mentioned Tart up above as one of the series involved in that massive crossover print. But let's spotlight them again here!

My friend and an incredibly talented creator, Kevin Joseph, is back on Kickstarter with the whopping FIFTEENTH INSTALLMENT of his demonic series, TART! This is one of the longest-running comics serialized entirely on Kickstarter and everybody should be checking it out ASAP!

A demonic serial killer is loose. Tart Acid must track it down the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. But if this was an ordinary evil, Tart wouldn't be on the case. Can she succeed without help from a member of the ruling family of Hell?

Looking forward to a day of signing autographs and meeting fans, they're fun gets cut short when a man that goes by "Inner Demon" arrives seeking the one thing the show floor doesn't offer... vengeance.

Cristabel Vol. 1

A 72-page full-color graphic novel written by Ringo Award-nominated writer Erica Schultzhe. Princess-turned-mercenary Cristabel is a formidable young warrior, but a chance encounter with a sorceress changes everything.

Having been banished from her father’s kingdom eight years prior on the order of her sorceress stepmother, Queen Geraldine, Cristabel travels in search of something that will break Geraldine's hold on King Leoline.

Along the way, Cristabel is reunited with her mentor, Wasiun, a disgraced knight from her father’s court, who was dismissed when he was outed as gay. As the old friends catch up, we learn that Geraldine has set the bewitched Leoline on the path to war with a neighboring territory. Hoping to rescue her father, Cristabel and Wasiun are joined by Roland, a charlatan with some real magic abilities. Together, the trio searches for the shaman who holds the key to killing Geraldine.

More Kickstarters

Check out these Kickstarters!

Massacre at the Comic Shop

Massacre at the Comic Shop is a horror novel about a toxic fan killing off the regular customers at a local comic shop with a chainsaw. It's also about these regular customers, who they are, their relationships with each other and their thoughts and opinions. The book is narrated by the owner of the shop, Galaxy's Comics & Games.

Writer, Nick Ulanowski, is a massive horror fan. He and I have had many conversations about the wonderful and versatile genre in the past, and his passion for character-driven and exciting horror always shines through. We even discussed this book a year ago at C2E2 when he was still developing the idea! I have no doubt that this horror novel will be a fantastic read and a celebration of the genre, so be sure to check it out!

One of our good friends, Brant Fowler, is inching closer and closer to his goal! Everything that he puts our via Last Ember Press is top-notch quality (and spans a wide range of genres), so don't miss out on his Cyberpunk Action Thriller!

"What happens when you know the whole world wants to defeat you? It's simple: you fight the world! Nothing is stronger than love, except a bullet in the face. Kenzo is good at his job; he has always completed whatever mission he has been given. Sometimes you can't choose, though. Sometimes you can only follow your instincts and face the consequences. But the Dragon fears no one."
