I wanted to take the opportunity to share this with out readers one more time. With only 4 days remaining, there are currently 8- backers totaling $3,708 for the NEW HORROR GRAPHIC NOVEL/COMIC SERIES: EVIL JESTER PRESENTS. Although my short story was not accepted for this round, I am still a huge supporter of this project. With your help, this project can become a success and provide more opportunities for writers to expand their talents into the world of comics. Some of the backer perks have also been updated to sweeten the pot. If you have already checked it out, go ahead and give it a second look. And while you are there, be sure to share it with your friends!
Comic books have always been a passion of mine. While in high school, I could say that I was addicted. In fact, at my worst, I was spending close to $200.00 per month on my favorites. The main stream comics, such as X-Men and Batman were always great, but those that stepped over the line of normal always appealed to me more.
As a writer of horror, I have always been intrigued by comics that bordered into scary and macabre. The toxic stench of inks intertwined with the visual stimulation of the artwork creates something that cannot be captured fully in film. Just a hint of the eye catching story, leaves enough room for the imagination to control the rest of the experience, leaving your mind to play upon your fears as you read.
The Evil Jester Presents kickstarter gives you the opportunity to become part of the resurrection of the classic horror genre. The 60 page Graphic Novel delves deep into your fears and tickles your fright with wonderful stories of pure horror genius.
The project is currently being developed by Charles Day and Taylor Grant. Charles is the Bram Stoker Award®-nominated YA author of THE LEGEND OF THE PUMPKIN THIEF, and the owner/founder of Evil Jester Press, a quality publisher of award-winning horror novels, but is also the Horror Writer Association’s Mentor Program Chairperson and Co-Chair for the NY/LI Chapter, as well as a member of the New England Horror Writers Association.
