About this project
“SCAPULA is the World’s Worst Villain…and I do mean the WORST. A frustrated grouch in a spooky skeleton costume, Scapula fights an ongoing battle to prove his worth as a supervillain. To do that he’ll have to stake his claim in the underworld, competing with crazed creeps, monsters, gangsters, and other sick minds. The worst has only just begun!”
Greetings, creepy comic-lovers! My name is Aidan Casserly. Scapula is my creator-owned series; first self-published in 2007, Scapula made the leap to webcomics the following year and has been continuously updated ever since.
For the sixth anniversary of the webcomic, I am releasing SCAPULA: WORLD’S WORST VILLAIN, the largest and finest book collection in the series. It is both a perfect introduction to new Scapula readers and a creative highlight to longtime fans.
...and it just gets weirder...!
I wish to produce a larger book-run than any of my previous volumes, with a finer quality printing and more extras to reward everyone’s generosity. The larger book run will allow me to sell SCAPULA: WORLD’S WORST VILLAIN at conventions and bookstores, making the series available to a greater audience than ever before!
What is contained in this villainous volume?
-The Series: Collecting six complete and sequential storylines of Scapula comics, beginning from the series’ relaunch. A major bonus is that all of the daily strips appear in color for the first time ever!!!
-The Halloween Gang Class of 2014: A ‘class picture’ spread profiling the punk kids in Scapula’s army, along with a special bonus: Kickstarter supporters who donate at a certain rewards level will be caricatured as members of the gang!
-Best of the Patreon Comics: Special comics from DADAMAN, a limited series created just for hardcore Scapula-supporters!
-Extended Character Profiles: Everything you ever wanted to know, or were just morbidly curious about, the creepy cast of this comic. Worthy of Wikipedia, but with lotsa' pretty pictures!
-How to Ruin Comics the ‘Scapula’ Way: A special behind-the-scenes chapter, revealing the complete process of creating the comics!
Like the book? Here are the awesome bonus rewards you can get for just a wee bit more!
UPDATE: Thanks to you all of our amazing backers, we have met our goal! But why end the party now when there are snazzy Stretch Goals to be achieved?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT, FELLOW COMIC-LOVERS!
I have enjoyed every moment of creating these characters, stories, art, and lunacy, and I hope that with your help this comic will be able to keep on going for many more years to come. Thank you for your help and keep supporting the Bad Guy!
SCAPULA: World's Worst Villain will be released by Arsenal Comics & Games Publishing. Arsenal is a publishing imprint that specializes in creator owned comics and tabletop games.
Risks and challenges
The book itself has already been finished (with the exception of adding caricatures of donors who appear in the Halloween Gang class picture), so production will begin as soon as the campaign is successfully completed.
The selected printing service is one that I have used several times in the past and trust to create high-quality merchandise. I will be posting numerous updates over the course of both the campaign and production, so you will be well-informed of everything that occurs.
Please note that all orders outside of the U.S.A. will have a higher shipping and handling cost (depending on what Rewards level you choose), although I will do everything I can to keep S&H costs to a minimum.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
