About this project

An allegory for the devastating effects of the loss of love - DONOR is a macabre horror story that takes us to the dark places... 

                                                                    ...where love refuses to die. 

DOWNLOAD THE SCRIPT

Boston, Massachusetts. 

Nicholas Mercer - a worn down Boston cop is called in to solve a gruesome crime - a leg severed torso has washed up on Revere Beach.

Reluctantly paired up with a new, green partner, Mercer begins to investigate, armed with little more than his instinct and resolve. 

Meanwhile, ingénue Lilly Fayne slowly regains her health and strength following a  heart transplant - unaware that she's fixed in the cross hairs of a killer, hell-bent on reclaiming the organs of his dead lover. 

As more grizzly victims are discovered and the macabre collection of body parts piles up, Mercer realizes that he's in a race against time to find and rescue the lone surviving recipient - Lily - before the killer can complete the full reconstruction of the donor he loved. 

This is a pro-grit, pro-shock, and pro-gore horror story.    

WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR?

•Publishing.  Although, this is only a four color graphic novel, printing can be quite expensive.  I've priced it out to be printed, professionally, since we don't want a book that falls apart at the seams.  It will be hand bound, matte images, and exceptional quality.   

•Your Artist.  He needs to eat.  And damnit, we're going to make sure he does.  

•Web hosting.  We'll post updates, sketches, character cards, fan page. 

•Limited Edition Prints (regular and oversized), and character cards.   Stay tuned for DONOR one-sheet and prints. 

•Merchandise (for you!)  T-Shirts.  Hats.   Custom engraved Swiss Army Ranger Knife.   

Bottom line.  It adds up.  And in this economy and in the fading world of publishing - we need YOUR support to make this happen.
