Help us create the most kick-expletive graphic novel ever, about a horrific monster, a guy named David, and the slaughtering of Nazis!
The Craver story begins toward the end of WWII, in one of the infamous Nazi concentration camps. A little boy, one among many, is taken into Dr. Hans Schmidt's laboratory to be tortured and experimented on as part of the Nazis' search for a new breed of human, a new breed of warrior. What they create they could never have imagined and to their everlasting terror, they will never escape.
Follow this horrific and suspenseful tale of The Craver - find the truth about the Sons of Aaron - and pray that The Craver isn't coming for you.
The story of The Craver was born in the mind of actor, comics enthusiast, and monster fanatic, Blake Clark. He owes the inspiration for this film and comic book to his dreams and to the Universal Monsters. Blake's heart's desire is to make a new monster for this generation in tribute to the Universal Monsters, to share how they captivated his imagination and illustrated the struggles between good and evil.
The Craver is a brave new look at history, monsters, good vs evil and how graphic novels are used to present untold horror stories. The Craver is intended to be a film trilogy, but we wanted to create the origin story in the comics and graphic novels, then continue the unique story line in the movies!
In order to see our dream realized, we need your help!
We have an amazingly talented team lined up for the graphic novel, including Writer: Erik Warfield; Artist: Marc Sandroni ; Producer: Anthony Lipe-Ladenheim and Creator: Blake Clark. They are waiting for you, the fans, to make this a reality. So, please join us in bringing The Craver to life and stay tuned for our updates from story plots to conceptual art!
(By the way...that happy guy in the blue shirt in our video? That's producer, Anthony Lipe-Ladenheim. That was our "oops" moment - we failed to identify him. If we knew what the plural of "mea culpa" was, this would be it!)
Mark Sandroni's Artwork:
As of right now The Craver is a 36 page graphic novel, but if we get more backers we're hoping to make it around a 60 page graphic novel.
As of right now The Craver will be a soft bound graphic novel, but we are hoping to make it a hard bound graphic novel. This will require a lot more backers.
If you are an international donor we would love you to give 5 to 10 dollars extra for the international shipping.
