What is Frankenstein For Mayor?
Frankenstein For Mayor is 76-page comic book about partisan politics.
Transylvania is not the territory you know. Situated around a castle, this Transylvania has endured for centuries under one man's rule, Count Dracula. The city has grown divided over time by three factions. The vampires have become the upper class and rule in their own favor. The witches have stopped voting since the leader of the coven was taken by the Nazis during World War II. The werewolves live in the outskirts of the city and are continually oppressed by the vampire police force.
Myron, son of the Wolfric who is head of the werewolf clan, has demonstrated and stirred the city to unrest. To peacefully quell any rebellion, Dracula has decided to hold the first election in Transylvania's history for mayor of the city. Unfortunately, Myron has been charged with killing another vampire while in werewolf form. With few other options, Wolfric has asked Indigo, head of the witch's coven, to resurrect Frankenstein in hopes of convincing him to run in the election.

Where is the Money Going?
The majority of the money will go to the creators of this book to help pay for Pencils, Inks, Colors, and Lettering.
As a writer, I've committed to paying for more than half of the book up front. Reinaldo and Chris have completed almost two thirds of the book to reduce any risk to you as a consumer. However, I'm just a guy with a full time job and I need your help to bring this project to fruition.
A portion of the proceeds will also go to the initial print run. The printer we will be using is Ingram Spark located in the United States.

The Transylvania Times has been the only newspaper of Transylvania for years. For the first time ever, you can read the front page about big events happening in Transylvania without the danger of setting foot in city.
We have political posters from artists that Disposable Fiction Comics has worked with before such as Horacio Boriotti and, of course, Reinaldo Lay.
The last thing we have to offer is your chance to be immortalized with our cast of characters. Send us your picture and Reinaldo will draw your likeness into the picture. We'll print it and send it back to you. Be quick, because this reward is limited to the first ten people.
Risks and challenges
The three of us have created several books. We know the problems that come with creating and printing, but we've always overcome our obstacles to completion. We've worked together and with the printer on previous books, so there should not be much in the way of surprises. Should something happen to one of our creators, we have a pool of talented individuals to work with.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
