ArmageDoom Factory is raising funds for "Bloody Roots", vol. 2 of the HELL CROSS comic series, a hardboiled tale set in the dystopian Eden City, written by Andrea Amenta and drawn by Stefano Cardoselli.
Missed issue 1? Don't worry, we thought about that. All backers will also get the digital version of issue 1. If you prefer the softcover version, you can choose the "Bad Company" pledge, including issues 1 and 2; or the "DooM BoX" pledge, including issue 1 and 2 plus two other ArmageDoom comic books.
“Rivers of blood shall flow, as the cries of the false innocents flood the city of sin.
Eden will burn in Hell!”
NYC detective Travis J. Pride has been in town for less than twenty-four hours. Not even time enough to sleep off a healthy alcoholic night: his slumber is cut short by a sudden wake-up call.
A “good morning” forecasting a long, wild, and shitty day.
The killer struck again.
Freshly-appointed manager Archibald was brutally torn apart, as well as everyone else at his villa. Same murderous hand. An unmistakable signature, all over the place: no survivors, no mercy.
Grouchy detective Pride keeps looking for a man who seems to walk through solid walls.
And while Travis tries to find a lead, a fanatic sect – the Brotherhood – keeps scheming for the destruction of the city.
The flames of Apocalypse are at Eden’s doors, its spawn ready to bring Hell into a city that, until a few days ago, was considered a paradise.
Will detective Pride escape the impending threat?
Through detective work and gunfights, terror and agony, seeking a truth that will inevitably lead to madness.
STRETCH GOAL (locked)
If the campaign reaches 2,500€, all the rewards that include a Softcover Edition of HELL CROSS #2 will be accompanied by a backer-only, numbered and signed limited reproduction (A4 format, color) of a new HELL CROSS illustration by Cardoselli.
Comics studio started up in 2017 by artist Stefano Cardoselli and writer Andrea Amenta in Orbetello, Tuscany, Italy.

Risks and challenges
The raised funds will cover production costs of the HELL CROSS, vol.2 comic book, and will be good foundation for future ArmageDoom projects.
This isn’t our first dance with Kickstarter: in the past year we had three successfully-funded campaigns that allowed us to create these comic books:
* Ballad of the Broken Heart
* Hell Cross #1
* The Mysterious Space Adventures of the Daring Darling
We are a small but tight team, confident in the delivery of the project and hitting the deadlines. We don’t anticipate any delays and, if successful, we will start printing as soon as the campaign ends. We’re looking forward to it!
According to our previous extensive experience with shipping we allocated enough time to get everything done without having you wait too long. The only things that could push that back are unexpected delays, faults with the manufacturers, or an alien invasion.
