My name is Joe Badon.
I'm the writer and artist for the book THE MAN WITH TEN THOUSAND EYES!!!
THE MAN WITH TEN THOUSAND EYES is a 32 page black, blue and white one-shot comic book (with some splashes of color).
It is a Surrealist, Sci Fi, Horror, Drama with a touch of Romantic Comedy that is influenced by my love of weird movies.
The story is about a man named Wendell. He leads an extremely mundane life: single, office job, lives by himself, etc…
One day, Wendell wakes up with a third eye smack in the middle of his forehead. This third eye gives him insight into people's lives, the future and other psychic abilities. Wendell, at first, feels like a hero that is able to help people but then quickly spirals downward as more eyes begin to grow all over his body and he starts losing control of his new found abilities.
THE MAN WITH THEN THOUSAND EYES is a tale of identity and soul searching as to what one's purpose is in life through the lens of surrealist fiction.
Drawing from influences such as Eraserhead, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Kafka's Metamorphosis and The Dark Barkward I hope to pay homage to such strange works of fiction while tackling some tough life questions.
I hope that you dig the idea and will support the book!
Funding will go to pay for the printing and shipping of the books as well as affording me the time to complete the artwork and the lettering.
I will be writing and drawing the book.
P.B. DeBerry will be lettering the book.
Here's some unlettered sample pages from the book!

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is just getting the artwork and lettering completed. Having said that, I have run a number of successful comic book campaigns so far and have always been able to complete the projects in a timely manner.
Also, I will be working with a printer that I regularly print books and art prints through so I am very confident that printing and fulfilling orders will go smoothly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
