About this project

**rewards updates at bottom of the page**
What happens when you can’t die? If you’re Demetrius Risher, you grow disgusted with watching mankind take their existence for granted and decide to remind them how precious life is-by horrifying them with series after series of murders. Jack the Ripper, The Axeman of New Orleans, The Cleveland Torso Killer, The Zodiac, and multiple other unsolved serial murder cases have actually been the work of the same man-Risher.
His brutal deeds do not go unchallenged. Anton Karvos, the husband of one of Risher’s victims, aims to stop the murderer, even if it costs him his own life. In fact, it already has-on several occasions. Lucky for him, he has someone looking out for him.
Of course, all this preternatural activity is bound to draw the attention of at least a couple humans, specifically that of detectives Royce Burnside and Aysha Taylor. What begins for them as an investigation into a serial killer case slowly draws them into Risher’s world.
And that world is one full of interesting characters such as Wastelocks, Reapers, secret ancient religious cults, forgotten gods, and more.
From the first page of this story to very last, the reader will be drawn into a world full of unique characters, thought provoking ideology, and unpredictable twists. Early reviews compare it to Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and Johnen Vasquez's Johnny the Homicidal Maniac.
Risher is brought to you by creator/writer P.H. Dillard and Hungarian artist Tamas Szalkai. This project is to raise funds for printing the first 100 copies. This could be the next undergound hit in indie comics, and we want you to be right there with us as it all happens. By donating to this project you are helping birth an amazing comic while keeping the spirit of independent art alive!
Plus, there's the cool rewards. Anything from a PDF file of issue #1 to HAVING YOURSELF MADE INTO A CHARACTER in a future issue of Risher. There's something here for everyone. We thank you for your time and consideration.
**Update 6/7/12-We've added a $1 reward of PDF copies of Risher writer P.H. Dillard's first 2 novels-"Becoming Zombie" and vampire/angel tale "Isaac".**
**Update 6/10/12-The first 15 people to pledge a total of $40 or more get a very rare item. P.H. Dillard, the writer and creator of Risher, also makes music under the name Cylence. The last album, Brusier, was an instant underground classic limted to 100 peo-pressed copies. Get one while you can.**
**6/14/12-We've dropped the price of additional hard copies and international shipping. Both were $5 but are now only $4!**
**6/15/12-I came up with an idea a while back for a comic called "Crotchrot and Swamp-ass". I storyboarded the whole thing..24 pages worth....only I can't draw (which is why I stick to the writing and let Tamas handle the art) so it's horrible...funny really. But I've decided that if we hit our goalof $200 I will personally scan, print, and certify a limited number of this abomination to all pledges of $15 or more.**
