Sullivan's Sluggers is a baseball horror graphic novel written by Mark Andrew Smith with art by James Stokoe (Orc Stain).

Our goal is to use Kickstarter to complete Sullivan's Sluggers and to produce a beautiful 200 page, color, hardcover book. 

We're relying on your support to make Sullivan's Sluggers the reality we all so very much want it to be.  $30 for 200 pages in glorious hardcover format is very reasonably priced, and Stokoe's art on its own makes Sullivan's 'the not to be missed' book of the year.  

This book is exclusive only to Kickstarter backers and available here for a limited time.

The Story...

Long past their former glory, the minor league Sluggers get an invitation to play a baseball game in a cursed small town. After the 7th inning stretch, the sun goes down, and the dysfunctional teammates find themselves fighting for their lives against a town of flesh-eating monsters!

Now, it's up to coach Casey Sullivan to help his team escape from being the next dish in the town's terrifying feeding frenzy!

Eisner & Harvey Award-winning graphic novel author Mark Andrew Smith joins forces with Eisner nominated illustrator James Stokoe for a gripping roller coaster of a graphic novel, packed with shocks, gore, and screamingly outrageous humor, when America's Favorite Past Time becomes one team's ultimate nightmare!

About myself: 

For the past 9 years I’ve been working as a writer on many Image Comic Book series such as Gladstone's School for World Conquerors, the New Brighton Archeological Society, and the Amazing Joy Buzzards.

It’s no secret that I love creating comic books.

About James:

I was lucky to meet James early in his career and since then James has gone on to become a fan favorite among readers and creators.

In my opinion James Stokoe is the Jimmy Hendrix of comics.  His work speaks volumes, already placing him in the pantheon of the Gods of comic book creators.  I cannot speak highly enough about James or stop gushing over his work.

PANELS FROM SULLIVAN'S SLUGGERS

In the Town of Malice things aren't what they seem.

The two trouble makers of the team, with the rookie Duncan trying to put a  stop their antics.

The Malice Gladiators.

The Slugger.

The Transformation.

No one is safe.

Baseball Players VS. Monsters in the epic rumble of the CENTURY!!!

Sullivan's Sluggers' is a mash-up of two classic American genres: baseball and horror.  What would an All-American athlete do when faced with the prospect of a ghastly death? Naturally, he uses everything at his disposal, including his training, to save his ass. It's also a character study of the 'team' concept and the human psyche under siege, all contained in a wrapper of dark humor and magnificent Stokoe art.

Thanks for taking a moment to check out our Kickstarter project. You can follow updates here and also follow me on twitter and my blog where I’ll be sharing our progress on putting the book together.
