Another worthy Kickstarter campaign: Beasts of the Black Hand

Posted by Michael Jan Friedman (Creator)


I figure it's my job to bring to your attention not only my own projects, but those of other talented, hardworking creators. In that light, I encourage you to check out Beasts of the Black Hand from Ominous Press:

Ron Marz is a terrific writer and a good friend of mine who's plotted the adventures of Silver Surfer, Green Lantern, and a number of other high-profile characters, and in the process earned a reputation as one of sequential art's finest storytellers. If he's scripting this book, you know you're in good hands.

And Ron's not the only reason to back this campaign. Matthew Dow Smith, the illustrator of the book, brings exactly the right feel to the project, creating with his pencils and inks a WW I-era Europe that's familiar and alien at the same time. And Paul Harding, who came up with the whole idea, offers his work as an accomplished sculptor in the list of rewards.

So take a look...and tell 'em Mike sent ya.

Best regards,
