Who are the Creators Behind the Man of Sin?
ANDREW WRITES: I've always loved creating. Some of my earliest memories are of me locked away in my bedroom with my action figures and creating entire worlds to play in. As an adult, I love the fact that I get to share these worlds, and these stories, with everyone. Nothing brings a bigger smile to my face than someone telling me that they've enjoyed my work.
CAMILO WRITES: Yes, I live in Chile. Yes, I am Latino, but I do not dance Salsa or Reggaeton (well, maybe with a few extra drinks). I live with my two daughters (both cats) and my girlfriend (another cat). I love the arts in general as music, paintings and drawings are my main passions. I like to play drums, I do not do it very often, but when I do it is very intense (sometimes, it gets me in trouble). With respect to my work, I like everything about the introspection and the emotinal processes, I think that darkness is not a wall that limits us, but rather, the darkness is like a riddle and when we decipher it, we can heal and keep growing, sometimes the dark hides true personal treasures.

WES WRITES: Wes Locher's lettering work has appeared in countless titles (I mean, I guess you COULD count them, but honestly, who has the time?) from Alterna Comics, ComixTribe, Titan Comics, Markosia Enterprises, and Arcana Studios, along with myriad self-published projects.
Why this story? Why Man of Sin?
Creator Andrew Guilde writes:
I remember holding my sobbing grandmother as they lowered my grandfather’s casket into his grave. I don’t remember much more from that day.
A few months later, I was back at the cemetery, this time holding my own mother as her husband, my stepfather, had just passed.
Within a year, I lost the two most important men in my life.
As time went on, I watched as my family tirelessly navigated their deaths. Anger, tears, fear, self- doubt and blame all manifested for everyone. Tragedy, I learned, sows deep roots.
It was here, watching my family struggle, that I felt I needed to tell a story. One part personal catharsis, one part meditation on the dangers we all must confront when we’re met face-to-face with tragedy.
As I began to think on how I’d tackle this subject, I knew instantly that I was going to write a horror story. Not because horror allowed me to deal with death and dying, but rather, the horror genre allowed me to explore the depths of the human condition when faced with death and dying, which is often times much more terrifying than any creature of the night.
Luckily for me, as this idea was swirling around in my head, I happened to be watching a documentary about the history of the anti-Christ. And like that, Man of Sin was born.

HERE'S HOW WE'LL PROTECT IT IN TRANSIT!
As Kickstarter fans and collector's ourselves, we know there's nothing worse than backing a comic project and then having your rewards arrive damaged.
After consulting with our backers, we've revamped our shipping practices to ensure your comics and collectibles arrive in great condition.
All comics shipped will be individually bagged with boards, and will be secured in Gemini Comic Supply Comic Flash Mailers, which provides impact-resistant protection.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our project. We would be absolutely thrilled if you're ready to take the next step and join this campaign!
On behalf of the entire Man of Sin team, thank you so much for your support!
Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges
Man of Sin soft cover graphic novel is over 60% with more completed everyday. Artist Camilo Ponce pencils, inks, and water colors each page by hand, and because of this production of Man of Sin takes time. We've allowed ourselves enough time to complete this project and get everything printed and shipped by Halloween 2019! Obviously, there could be a problem or delay. If this does arise, we will be 100% transparent with our progress. However, rest assure, we've already successfully delivered one Kickstarter campaign and plan on continuing that success.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
