About this project

NEW ADD-ON AVAILABLE! MINIATURE DISPLAY BOX!

 To select this add-on reward, just add $5 to your pledge, and fill out the add-on survey after the campaign!

ABOUT THE SET

Creeping Flesh: Dan Brereton's Monster Girls is a premium wax pack trading card set featuring the incredible artwork of comic book veteran and writer/illustrator Dan Brereton.

Each set will contain 19 retro picture cards and 1 sticker card, packaged in a hand-folded and heat-sealed wax wrapper.  The cards and pack are printed entirely in the USA, and are designed to replicate the look and feel of classic trading cards from the 1960s and 70s.

The cards are printed on old school cardboard chip stock, and the wrapper coated in real wax; hold them in your hands and you'll be instantly transported back to your childhood!  

ABOUT DAN BRERETON

Dan Brereton, a 30+ year comic book veteran, is best known for his creator-owned comic book series, Nocturnals, and has written and illustrated stories for the biggest heroes in comics, from Batman, The Justice League, and Superman, to Spider-Man, Thor, and The Punisher! 

ABOUT SIDEKICK

The set is produced by SideKick Lab, who manufactured Topps' Mars Attacks: Occupation trading card series, and Buff Monster's Melty Misfits sticker cards, both of which were successfully funded on kickstarter.  

This project is being run by Tom Lichtman, owner of SideKick, and Adam Levine, formerly of Topps.  Both were responsible for running the Mars Attacks campaign, while Tom & SideKick handled both manufacturing and shipping/fulfillment for that project.

This campaign features 7 primary rewards:

  • Trading Card Pack
  • 11x14 Print <--NOW SIGNED & NUMBERED
  • Autograph Metal Card
  • Pencil Sketch Card
  • Color Sketch Card
  • Premium Collector Autograph Set
  • Metal Sketch Card
  • The wax pack includes 19 cards and 1 sticker. Dan Brereton and collaborator Adam Levine (Mars Attacks) crafted stories for the backs of each card providing background and flair on the monster girls appearing on each card.
  • The 11x14 Print will feature an image of Frankenstein's monster and his bride, and printed on premium cardstock, and sized perfectly for framing.  The print will be limited to 350. BONUS ADDED: Each print will be signed by Dan Brereton and numbered to 350!
  • A special autograph edition of the set, with each card hand signed by Dan Brereton, stamped with a special "autograph edition" seal, and packaged in a handsome, velvet-black collector box, foil-stamped with an "Autograph Edition" logo.
  • The Metal Autograph card will feature a unique design and be hand-signed by Dan Brereton.
  • Dan will be creating 25 b&W pencil sketches for the $75 reard level. 
  • Dan Brereton will be creating 55 full color sketch cards, hand-drawn pieces of art which he will produce after the campaign closes (available in the $100 and above levels).  50 will be on standard trading card stock, while 5 will be on a unique metal card!

  • Autograph Collector Set: A special autograph edition of the set, with each card hand signed by Dan Brereton, stamped with a special "autograph edition" seal, and packaged in a handsome, velvet-black collector box foil-stamped with an "Autograph Edition" logo.

Risks and challenges

SideKick Lab is a printing facility located in Rutland, Vermont. SideKick specializes in accurately reproducing the materials and methods of classic Wax Pack trading cards.

In order to pay Dan for the use of his artwork, to cover the costs of printing, packaging, assembly, and shipping, we need to collect a small amount to make sure the product is worthwhile for everyone involved.

The good news is that SideKick has a long history of trading card production, and is a well-oiled, fine-tuned machine. SideKick produced Buff Monster's Melty Misfits cards, Topps' Mars Attacks: Occupation, Bobby Aker's "Blood Drive" series, plus many projects for major companies such as Skybound ("Outcast"), Fox ("Bob's Burgers"), PopCap ("Plants vs Zombies"), and many many more!

While this is SideKick's first foray on Kickstarter, Tom & Adam have previously been part of numerous campaigns, most notably running the massive Mars Attacks: OCcupation campaign, which had over 500 backers receiving dozens of different pledge reward items.

This campaign is a much simpler project, and all logistics have been carefully considered and planned for a smooth production and fulfillment.
