About this project
“CrowScare” An American Horror Story Brought to Life by: Bad Teddy Comics
Thanks for Checking Us Out!!!!
Hi My Name is Charles Sloan owner and operator at Bad Teddy Comics and We are looking to Scare the Dickens out of you!
During my career in comics and illustration I have had the fortunate rewards of working on many types of books across the spectrum of comics from Heroes to the Darkest Villains, to children's stories to science fiction! Now I am here to give the public some of the best original horror stories with all the extras.
What to Expect:
Great Writing, Great Art and Great Scares!!!!
As seen in images below the art is amazing, and keeps getting better as we go further into the book and stays dark, twisted and keeps you guessing what happens next as the CrowScare comes to life so does the chills and thrills!Is the Book Complete?
Issue #1 is well underway with the writing complete and the pencils and inks complete on 40% of the book. Colors will be added in the next weeks to the already completed pages.
Here is a small preview of the inked pages that you see in the video!!!
WE USE DOMESTIC PRINTERS!!!!!: Yes they are a little more expensive but we try to keep the buisness here!!
What can we expect when it comes to Rewards?
My Answer to that, check them out, lol! They are all great, I have even thrown in a great $1 Reward of a Pdf. Version of my original Book “To Hell and Back” that I self published and is available for sale across the net and soon to be in stores! We have rewards that fit any budget and give you a great value for what you are giving to help us on our way!
What are the Funds Being Used For?
The funds from this campaign are being used to complete the art to the book and run the early print campaign.
As anyone that knows the industry knows, or anyone who doesn't even, I will introduce you to the cost of comics.... Here are some of the major and even some of the minor expenses that go along with independent publishing
1) payment of talent
2)cost of print
4)distribution(amount always depends on who you are using) as this isn't a direct cost it does play into the overall amount that gets charged to consumers and the comic shops that purchase the book to sell
and those are only a few!!!
When Will I get my Rewards?
ASAP, we are shooting and are on schedule for an August release date of CrowScare which means you will be getting your rewards in August! Deadlines are getting met and we are pushing along at a great pace!
The only delay that I could fathom would be on the Commissioned Artwork, but as anyone who has worked with me will attest I am one of the best at meeting and exceeding deadlines!We will be updating at least twice a week on the progress and be previewing new pages and the color's on the existing ones as we move along!

Risks and challenges
Really the biggest challenge is the amount of commission work I get from this kickstarter program and being able to complete it as well as my regular commission work that I do, but I feel confident in my abilities to complete all work on time to get it to you by our deadline!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
