A comic writer and publisher for over twenty years, Adam Talley (Pleasant Life, Starslam) presents his new project: TALES FROM THE GORE! It is a 24 page tribute to EC Horror comic anthologies and features three stories, pinups, fake ads (like the old books) and more! It also features the first published work of Olya Stevens, making this book even more special!

This book's theme is ZOMBIES! Every story has something to do with Zombies. A perfect read for the zombie lover in your life!

This book also has a special backstory: It is a tribute to our friend and Olya's father, Caleb Stevens... a true horror fan who passed away last year. Caleb is featured in this book as a main character, our crypt-keeper of sorts who introduces each story and shows elements from his life.

We are doing this book to celebrate Caleb's life, horror comics from our youth and all the proceeds after printing will be donated to the Caleb Stevens Memorial Fund and the Arlee Rodgers Surgery Fund. Once printing and shipping costs are covered, all proceeds will go to those causes. So not only do you get an awesome comic, but it goes to help some good causes as well!

Check out some original art from the book! 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Risks? There are no risks! This book is 100% done! The PDF will be released the week the Kickstarter ends and the books will be shipped within a month of the Kickstarter's end. It takes a couple weeks to get the kickstarter money into our account and then a couple weeks to print the books. For those getting the art options, we'll contact you during this time and have your art pieces ready for when we get the books so things will ship quickly. Adam has done a few other Kickstarters already with his comics and has built a trust in delivering things as promised and timely as promised. He promises constant communication and a strong work ethic to finish this project.
