In 1993 cartoonist John Michael McCarthy (JMM) wrote and illustrated 13 black & white pages of HELVIS, a "southadelic" tale of a monsterific rock n' roller in search of the decades he was made from. HELVIS received wisdom from William C. Gaines, kisses from Tura Satana, and a roller coaster ride piloted by his former incarnations: REBELVIS, PSYCHEDELVIS, and ELVICIOUS! Then JMM began to make movies and abandoned HELVIS on the tracks. Now it's time for a comeback! After 22 years, JMM returns to finish the comic strip adventure of HELVIS. Please help fund HELVIS and make this comic book a reality!
Risks and challenges
I am an Elvis fan. Heck, I'm from Tupelo! I am currently working on several Elvis-oriented projects in Memphis, including Saving the Mid-South Coliseum where Elvis performed three times. Rock n' Roll, Comic books and Movies matter a lot to me and the art I'm involved in. Sometimes I put too much on my plate, but this is the project that will lead me back to my first love which is comic books. Delays may occur but ultimately they always lead back to the subject matter of HELVIS and the comic book art that will result. Afterward, finding a publisher could be a problem, but if that is the case I will publish the book online.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
