About our story...

Jane Armstrong, a young woman pushing herself through the mundane life of a stenographer. Unknown to her since before her current life she lived another. A life buried now within her subconscious, a life forged from tragedy to give hope to a dying future. Now the future must collide with the past to either give birth to a savior or a monster. The Rise of Red Moon.

Creator/Editor Paul R. Michaels .... Paul is an artist himself, and has attended conventions with many more planned to promote his upcoming new comic books and his artwork. Paul has worked hard to pull a great team of Artist, Writer, Colorist and more together to bring you "The Rise of Red Moon" a full 35 page color comic book. You can find him on deviantARTFacebook or Twitter.

Including Writer Nathaniel (Nathan) Baker

Nathan is a comicbook writer currently working with SpeakEasy Primates, Atlas Unleashed, working on his own blog, you can also find his short prose style comic Rose Against the Moon here; find him on deviantART; or follow Agromania on twitter. He's worked in networking in comics for the last five years, He's done reviews for Projectfanboy.com, and Rantgaming.com, as well as published the short static lullaby in the anthology schizophrenia, on top of having much much more in the works.

Paul has also gotten the very talented Artist Milan Andjelkovic to agree to be the artist for The Rise of Red Moon.

Milan has drawn such comics as Arcadian Knights with Garrett Free
Unrequited Homicide with Dan Bradley King
Temporal Law with Chris Welman and Veronica Smith
He was artist for Red Branch Publication with two short stories and series Gladiator
Milan is a occasional collaborator with Gray Haven comics and Tragic Entertainment.
You can find him on deviantART where most of the above images can be found in his Gallery or on http://www.milanandjelkovic.blogspot.com

And the talented Colorist Veronica Smith will be doing the page coloring within The Rise of Red Moon. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Albion College (liberal arts Major: Biology, Minor: Art). She is also a colorist with Blue Collar Vigilante Studios, FaithStar comics: Soldier Priest, Angel 21 and Quany comicbooks. You can find samples of her great colorings on deviantART.

Also Letterer Ray Burke has joined the team doing all the lettering within the pages of The Rise of Red Moon.

Other Pinups within the Red Moon Comic.
Louis Small, Jr.
is the original 'Vampirella' artist for the comic book series published by Harris from 1992 will have a concept pinup inside the comic. We are hoping to have a few other great artist included within the pages of Red Moon, sorry no sneak peaks here, need to buy the comic to see them. Well maybe a little peak once we get the art.

So why are we doing this Kickstarter project? .....

Once we reach our goal all funds raised here will be used to getting the rest of the artwork completed, colored and printing cost. Any extra funds raised above the 100% will go forward with issue #2 and promoting the comic itself. So needless to say if we raise 200% or 300%, then issue #2 can be started right after this current issue is completed and be available a few months later.

If you cannot help with funds, you may still be able to help get the word out.

Please share this page on your social networks, Twitter, Facebook, devaintART, e-mail how ever you can help. Never know one of your friends could be as excited as we are to bring "The Rise of Red Moon" out into the Comic Industry and help us reach our goal.
