About

Giancarlo Caracuzzo, artist of Marvel, DC Comics, Image, IDW Publishing, Delcourt, Dupuis, present the Graphic Novel "Simon Blood, Volume 2", 52-page full-color book, SUPPORT our project!

 

 

 

 

I'm Giancarlo Caracuzzo, the writer and artist for the trilogy "Simon Blood Books " . After the success of fundraising the first Volume "Simon Blood, The Seventh Moon ", I present you "Simon Blood, Volume 2" !!!! 

Simon Blood is an all-ages graphic novel inspired by my favorite movies and comics. If you like Moebius, Uderzo, Miyazaki, Asterix, Arzach, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, then you just might become a fan of Simon Blood. Simon Blood will be a 52-page full-color book that’ll include several covers, sketches and illustrations. The book is being written together with the young and talented writer Massimiliano Grotti, the collaboration of the most important Italian graphic designer "Paolo Altibrandi", author of the Logo, letterer and Editing.   Draw by me, and colored by Flavia Caracuzzo, my daughter, and it’s scheduled to be finished in March of 2019, and shipped out to backers in May of 2019. The book will be translated in English and Italian, you can choose the preferred version.

Anyone who wants to buy Volume 1, can contact me directly for every detail to my email: info@giancarlocaracuzzo.com

 

 

 To start off, we would like to thank all of you who, two years ago, helped us realising the first Volume. You support was incredible – you trusted in us and in our project, and this has brought enthusiasm and happiness to our work. 

For us it’s been a wonderful experience, thank you my friends! Now, we are ready to start working on the second Volume. An incredible story, an epic tale that will turn Simon’s Blood life upside-down. Our young hero Simon, together with his new faithful friend Andhy Fly, will be on the search for Ariel, kidnapped by the cruel King Xe and the mighty Commander Thauros. 

Our characters will find themselves in unknown lands, dangerous and mysterious places, where they will peril their own life. You will be amazed by plot twist; our young heroes will face new characters, otherworldly landscapes, hordes of drakes and merciless armies…

Friends, we are ready for the second act, and we need all of your support again. Share our project with your friends – me and Flavia will work hard and with dedication. 

You can help us fulfil our dream…

Here's a breakdown of where the funds are going: About 45% of the funds will be allocated to the printing, packaging and shipping, because we want everything to be perfect. Printing: Euro 2645, This covers getting the books printed and shipped to my house.

(44%), Fees:Euro 1035 This covers the Backer Kit, Kickstarter fees. (9%), Shipping: Euro 2760 ( 24% ) This covers packing up the books and shipping charges.
