Horror comic Brutal Bombshells features six short stories of murder and misfortune, each tale introducing a unique female lead role who's fate ends, one way or another, in a horrorifically bloody climax.
Meet the characters
Suzy is a gym fanatic who loves a work out and to treat herself to all the facilities the gym has to offer. But she won't be renewing her membership after she pushes up the heat in this gruesome sauna escapade.
Marrying an older man often carries a stigma - particularly so if that man is sixty years older and extremely rich. This doesn't phase Molly, as she has only one thing on her mind. But her bloody-minded determination to snuff out her besotted lover could ultimately be her downfall...
Dinner Date Debbie
Ahh, young love. Debbie is celebrating her first wedding anniversary and she is head over heels in love with her husband, Jerry. But Jerry is often home late from the office due to 'deadlines'. Hopefully he'll be home in time for the special meal his wife has prepared - she just needs to finish off a little detective work before she puts the roast in the oven.....
Boob Job Barbara
Dissatisfied with her appearance, Barbara resorts to a cheap breast enlargement procedure to give more than just her confidence a boost. With a sexy smile she boards a plane for a luxury holiday to show off her new body on a sunkissed beach. But maybe she should have vacationed closer to home and invested in a better doctor....
Hacked Off Hayley
Loose cannon Hayley has a crazy temper on her, which she struggles to control at best. Her girl-next-door exterior is really a facade and her violent tendencies threaten to errupt at the slightest frustration. Imagine the potential carnage when you combine this with taxing DIY and a horny neighbour who thinks his luck is in.
Whats worse than being part of a love triangle? Finding out you are the spare part. Three is certainly a crowd for Tom. He' trying to get get together with Katy but the office slut Valerie has her sights on him first, Valerie has a reputation, but there's even more to it than anyone gossiping around the water cooler could imagine.....
Developed as a one shot, I'll be planning a second volume in the new year, with a view to releasing a couple of volumes a year around other more regular comics projects.
This campaign is designed to raise money to contribute to printing costs, so I won't be aiming to make a profit from this release. My chosen print company has a fast turn around and all other reward are easily produced during the campaign run to meet expected shipping deadlines.
Brutal Bombshells is being released as a webcomic during the campaign so is available to preview at www.silentp.co.uk. The final comic will feature six colour cover image pages, with each each story in monochrome tones. The preview release showcases the comic in progress as I complete the final monochrome stage.
Risks and challenges
We are currently on track to have all of our work complete before the end of this campaign. The only risks therefore are down to any delays with printing. We have approached a printer who is able to provide what we need, but if they anticipate any delays nearer our release date we will inform you all asap.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
