Independent Comics veterans Adam Talley and Mike Pascale are back and ready to scare the pants off of you!

Legends say that in 2006, Adam Talley (Sketchcard artist with Marvel, DC and Star Wars and independent artist/writer behind Anna Pocalypse and Pleasant Life) organized a group of his friends to do a comics anthology. This included Mike Pascale (Bru-Hed, Strange Kaddish, Nasti and others) and they set the comics world on fire with their first anthology: The Tales of Sequential Mayhem #1. The book sold out and has been long since out of print! And now they are back with a sequel and it has a twist!

Just in time for Halloween, Tales of Sequential Mayhem #2 is a complete throwback in feel and style to the old EC HORROR comics of your youth. It comes with three complete stories of horror/science fiction feel, fake ads for B Movies and Xray glasses, and pinups galore! The cover (drawn by Mike Pascale) will look like a page from history with a faithful re-creation of the EC HORROR style. The interiors of the 24+ page comic will be a creepy grey to capture that haunting feel of the comics you knew and loved! The first story done by Adam has a Twilight Zone feel and is about a music obsessed fan who travels back in time to stop the murder of John Lennon. Mike's story deals with horror related subject matter. Also exclusive to this book is newcomer Shane Logan in his first published work! Its a written story about a GPS system that gets jealous and tries to kill her owner! The story comes complete with cover art by Adam Talley.

The comic will have ads and posters for fake B Movies of the era in which the book takes its influence. The good ol' 1950's/60's will be alive once more in the crazy fake ads for films such as "Killer Poodles" and "Attack of the 50ft. Man-Eater!" The comic will also have fake and real ads for Xray goggles, Charles Atlas style exercise programs and other things that help you recreate the vibe in which comics had such things. Lastly, you will get some pinups of some scary monsters and ghoulish but gorgeous vixens as only the boys know how to deliver!

The art is mostly completed, but the boys wanted to offer the book with some exclusive deals and help raise funding for it, so thus they are going for the Kickstarter program. Through this effort you will get things exclusive to this fundraiser and will not be recreated. Things such as Exclusive prints, original art, and even opportunities to get published ads in the book or be drawn in as a character! Independent comics are very important to the health of the industry and Mike, Shane and Adam want to give a tribute to the comics they fell in love with as kids. If successful, they will likely do more of this type of thing in the future!

Thank you and we appreciate your support!
