UPDATE!!!! NEW ORIGINAL ART REWARDS!

Our friends, Dave Wachter, James Heffron & Luis Czerniawski, and Alex Serra have gratiously contributed some amazing original art rewards (see below):

There's someTHING terrorizing the swamp outside of Gerber's Crossing...

Nearly a dozen people are missing—the most famous one being Arael Moon: comic book writer, pop culture icon, and practicing magician. What mysteries lurk in this spooky Louisiana parish, and can the Undead or Alive Agency put an end to the disappearances?

Originally launched as a back-up feature in Image Comics' Hoax Hunters, Undead or Alive follows a group of paranormal bounty hunters—all the while paying homage to monster comics of the past.

About the Creators

Steve Bryant is the Eisner and Manning Award-nominated writer/artist of Athena Voltaire from Sequential Pulp/Dark Horse Comics. Steve has also completed projects for IDW, Boom! Studios, Ape Entertainment, and others, as well as extensive work in the roleplaying game industry. He lives in the suburban wilds of Central Illinois with his son, girlfriend, dog, and cat.

Jason Millet is an illustrator who has freelanced in the Chicago area since 1997. He has created storyboards, concept art and illustration for various ad agencies across the country as well as for NBC-Universal, Wizards of the Coast and Disney. He has also illustrated 15 children's books for a variety of publishers and penciled and/or colored comics for DC Comics, Dark Horse Publishing, Devil's Due Publishing, IDW, Image Comics, Archie and Scholastic Books.

         

Risks and challenges

Since the script for Undead or Alive is already completed, our Kickstarter goal is to cover printing and fulfillment costs and to pay Jason enough money to clear his schedule, allowing him the time to complete the art on this project. If obstacles arise, Jason is experienced in maintaining and arranging his schedule to bring things on track.

If we experience setbacks, due to unforeseen obstacles, we are prepared to handle them and we will compensate our backers with additional content.
