Dark Mischief is a collection of tales of the supernatural and the frightful by some of the great talents of independent comics.
So this Halloween will see the release of Dark Mischief Volume One featuring stories by Mitch Byrd (Starman, Predator, Starship Troopers), AP. Furtado (Heavy Metal), Dirk Manning (Nightmare World), Thomas Hall (Robot 13), Dani Jones (My Sister the Freak), Dave Flora (Ghost Zero), Sara Turner (Ghosts of Pineville), Kim Holm, Mark Rudolph, Cayetano Garza, Sam Kirkman, Pam Harrison, Wayne Spencer, Kenny Durkin, Thomas Florimonte Jr, and more.
The collection will be edited by me -- Jenni Gregory -- with an assist by Barry Gregory, design by AP. Furtado, and a cover by Mitch Byrd.
The collection will be printed in full color at standard comics size -- 6.625 x 10.25 -- in both a softcover perfect-bound edition and a limited hardcover edition. A digital download edition will also be available.
We're fortunate in that we don't need to generate funds for printing. One of the benefits of owning a printing press is that printing costs aren't really an obstacle for you.
So what's the purpose of this campaign? Simple ... I'm hoping to raise some funds to pay advances to the artists and writers who have contributed to this project. That's it. 100% of all proceeds from this campaign (after paying for the rewards themselves) go directly to the creators who contributed stories as advances on their royalties.
We're offering some great rewards -- including a limited edition of the book available ONLY as a Kickstarter reward! Take a look to your right and see for yourself!
So thanks for your attention and I hope you'll consider pledging!
