The Devil is Due In Dreary is a western thriller comic book that will be published in four issues beginning the fall of 2011.
Two strangers with a questionable past arrive in the reclusive town of Dreary and unknowingly fulfill a prophecy the town believes will precede the coming of the apocalypse. Classic cars, pompadours and rock-n-roll meet the folklore of the American southwest in this rockabilly take on the classic western.
The Devil is Due in Dreary will be four 22-page comic books to be published this fall by Ardden Entertainment. This campaign is for the first book. We need your help to pay for the wonderful artwork from Alex Sanchez (cover), Allan Jefferson (pencils), Jonas Trindade (inking) and Diego Tapie (colorist).
From these character sketches below you can see all the stages the artists go through from the sketch to the pencil to the inking to the final color.
The comic is based off a screenplay written by David Parkin and Dave is writing all four comic books. Over the past few months David has written the first book and our artists have been hard at work (as you can see from the artwork already completed in the video above). We need to raise the $5000 to pay our artists. $5000 will complete book #1 but anything we raise beyond that will help us pay for the second, third and fourth books! So please keep contributing!
The first book is set to be released in late October and the subsequent books will follow monthly. Ultimately we plan to make a movie as the comic is based off a screenplay.
We need your help to make this comic book a reality! And with just $25 you get a signed copy of the book, and for $35 your name can be in print, but you can be a part of our project on many levels including being drawn into the book as a character!
The Devil is Due in Dreary is a western thriller about the town of Dreary whose people live in fear of a prophecy that on a given day of the year if two outlaws pass through the town, the Devil will follow at sunrise to take the souls of the people of Dreary. On the day of our story two men, possibly outlaws, pass through Dreary. Will they bring the Devil? Will they make it out alive?
Only with your support will we find out the answers to these questions!
Four 22 page issues!
