UPDATE: JUNE - Stretch Goal #6 UNLOCKED!
Welcome to the FRIGHTS & DELIGHTS Kickstarter campaign!
Hi! I'm Mike Wolfer, writer, artist, editor, letterer, amateur colorist, publisher... You name it, I do it. Over the last- gulp- thirty years, I've been creating some of the coolest, erotic horror comics you'll find anywhere, many of which have been funded on Kickstarter. Now, I'm unleashing an all-new, full-color comic featuring some of the hottest erotic/horror images you've ever seen, titled "FRIGHTS & DELIGHTS!" It's 24 pages of comic art for grown-ups, and includes my characters from WIDOW, RISSK, DAUGHTERS OF THE DARK ORACLE, and MORE!
HOW TO GET EACH EDITION OF FRIGHT & DELIGHTS:
The FRIGHTS & DELIGHTS Regular Edition will be autographed by artist Mike Wolfer, and comes with every single level offered here. However, the FRIGHTS & DELIGHTS Nude Cover Variant (also autographed) is available only as an Add-On, so if you want it, pick your pledge level and before backing add an additional $20, then make your pledge and send me a private message here on Kickstarter to let me know that you would like a copy of the Nude Edition added to your rewards. Pretty simple! This one is going to be a real collectible, so don't miss your chance to pick up yours! (Nude Edtion limited to 5 per backer.)
As a backer, not only will you be helping to fund the creation of this all-new book, but you'll also be able to get your hands on the rewards for nearly EVERY ONE of my previous campaigns, available again for a limited time, including some of those campaigns' assorted, additional goodies and Stretch Goal rewards! If you missed THE CURSE OF RAGDOLL- She's back! If you missed MAXIMUM RISSK- She's back! If you missed COUNTESS BATHORY- She's back as well!
Who are some of the major players that you'll find in this campaign? Let's check the scorecard:
It's an incredible assortment of books, in an incredible campaign that- frankly- I don't think anyone has ever attempted. I'm bringing them all back, fulfilled from the modest over-printings of every item offered in the original campaigns. It's like Mike Wolfer Entertainment's Greatest Hits for lovers of the scary... And sexy!
(*The rewards books for the WAR MONSTERS and WIDOW: PROGENY levels still need to be printed, so those will ship in October 2018, two months after the other rewards.)
I don't know about you, but when I look at a Kickstarter campaign, I don't care about the cool, variant covers done by special guest artists- I want to see what the interiors of the books look like. That's the true test of a comic's quality. So here you go- Here are some samples of what you' be getting behind those splashy covers...
This is the perfect opportunity for new followers of my work to get caught-up on all of the past delights you've missed, some of which were impossible to find... Until NOW!
Let's take a look at all of the incredible collectibles that are available again for a limited time, just as they were originally offered in their respective Kickstarter campaigns!

NOTE: All commissions will be used as covers for WIDOW UNLEASHED, with your name printed in the credits of the book, listed as the owner of the original art, AND the commission level comes with the rewards from any level of your choosing!
I'm not forgetting my very vocal digital comics readers- For you, I've got a ridiculously economical offer:
NOTE: Digital comics are delivered in PDF format.
...and what if you want to back more than one level??? You can back as many levels as you would like, thanks to the "Add-On" capability which you can read about below!
SUPER-IMPORTANT NOTE, IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Because I'm offering the Add-On capability, you can essentially pledge to as many levels as you would like. Since I announced this campaign on Facebook, I've had several people ask if they can get multiple levels, because they've missed more than one of my campaigns. YES, you can get more than one level, as detailed above in the blue box. I just wanted to stick that headline in there to make sure that everyone caught that!
I've had a little help from my friends along the way, but just about everything here is the work of Mike Wolfer (me). I started my comics career in 1987, when I self-published DAIKAZU (see WAR MONSTERS, below), and I've worked for various publishers like Dark Horse Comics, Avatar Press, American Mythology Productions, and others, where you might have first seen my work on books like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, FRIDAY THE 13TH, LADY DEATH, THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, and many others. But I've always been an independent at heart, and truly love self-publishing, so as often as possible, I do projects like the ones you'll see in this Kickstarter.
Others who have contributed to these campaigns are:
ROY ALLAN MARTINEZ: Artist on WIDOW: PROGENY, Roy also illustrated ETERNAL THIRST OF DRACULA (both available in this campaign). Roy is now the full-time artist on American Mythology's supernatural horror series, ZORRO!

MARIO ZIMPRICH: An extraordinary inker, Mario has contributed to several of my personal projects, including DAUGHTERS OF THE DARK ORACLE, THE FILBERT FACTOR, and THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, all available here.
