A modern and magical Halloween tale told in a 40-page full-color comicbook by artist Amy Reeder & writer Brandon Montclare.
The Comic: Eve has an imagination that’s more than active—it can be downright dangerous! Working late at the costume super-store Halloween Land, she gets lost in her own thoughts until something goes bump in the night... The rubber masks and plastic novelties are coming to life, and Eve must face ghosts, goblins, and gorilla suits made real!
HALLOWEEN EVE is a 40-page (32 story pages plus other content) full-color comic, due out in October 2012 to celebrate Halloween. It's a stand-alone, self-contained tale of magic and adventure. It's geared toward teen and adult audiences.
The Creators: Artist Amy Reeder (Batwoman, Madame Xanadu) teams with writer Brandon Montclare (Fear Itself: Fearsome Four). Although we loved our various projects at Marvel and DC, we both feel its time to do something creator-owned. We'd like your support, and that's where Kickstarter comes in...
The Kickstarter: All money raised will go toward production costs to make HALLOWEEN EVE and to give supporters some cool rewards. Later in the summer we'll be announcing a publisher that will help us package and distribute our comic. But since this book is 100% creator-owned, there's no publisher's financing. Our Kickstarter goal is enough to bridge the gap and get a copy of the book in the hands of readers in 4 months! So if you enjoyed our past work, support creator-owned comics, and want to see HALLOWEEN EVE become a reality, we have some great rewards for you. And remember: you're only charged if we make our funding goal.
Now check out some art...
We've shown a preview of HALLOWEEN EVE to a few comics creators, and here's what they said...
"Halloween Eve is incredible! Amy Reeder breathes such unique and beautiful energy into her artwork and Montclare's script keeps right up with her, adding life to this heartbreaking story and its wonderful characters." -- Jeff Lemire (Animal Man, Sweet Tooth)
“This book is great! This book is beautiful!”--Frank Quitely (Batman, All Star Superman)
"Original, creative, and beautiful. This book is killer. Some of the highest-caliber stuff coming from the indy world. With Brandon and Amy, you're in good hands." --Sean Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus, Joe the Barbarian)
“Trick or Treat??? All Treat! Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder come together to bring you a one-shot that can’t miss.” --Shane Davis (Superman: Earth One)
"It's always exciting to see Amy's phenomenal art and here she is working with the guy who first steered us together on Madame Xanadu! I'm sure Halloween Eve will deliver the holiday thrills...and a good story to boot!" --Matt Wagner (Grendel, Mage)

Samples of rewards...
Yes! Kickstarter still doesn't allow you to select multiple rewards, but simply put in a pledge with the total dollar amount of all the stuff you want, select one reward, and then send us a message requesting the other rewards you want added to the package. We'll send a message back confirming everything so there's no misunderstanding.
Unfortunately it's really expensive for us to send stuff outside of the US. We ask that if you're in Mexico or Canada that you add $5. If you're in Europe & Australia, $10-15 or more. Send us a message if you have any questions or if you're from somewhere on the globe not mentioned above!
One of the best ways to help us manage costs on international packages is to consider ordering multiple rewards. There's a reward for 3 copies of the book for (share the extras with friends!); or you can order both prints (they're equally awesome!); or something like that!
Whatever you do, don't worry! We'll get your rewards to you.
