Headshot Horror's Pitch to YOU!
Committed to bringing you a top-quality indie comic book experience outside of mainstream media, Headshot Horror needs you to help kickstart their crowdfunding graphic novel brand. Our goal is to spearhead unique, spiritually charged, one-shot sci-fi/fantasy/horror stories from an underrepresented creative voice in the medium, and make them available to comic geeks everywhere.
Welcome to LAIR...
The place where demons watch us...
Waiting for that bleak moment of vulnerability...
To rise again...
You Had Me At Para-Dimensional...
We all heard of demonic possession, right? Well LAIR is the crepuscular alternate dimension that serves as a conduit between demons and mankind...
A sizzling bright flash. A portion of a New York City 6 train toppled on its side, resting on a shiny hieroglyphical surface. The tail end of the subway car, torn like cardboard. Ghoulish shadows of strange winged beasts glide across the dented train hull. Three survivors are onboard. A snarky female college student, a rattled female nurse, and ANGELO CRUZ, a brazen off-duty cop who desperately wants to find the love of his life, he just so happened to have scorned, only moments ago-- oblivious that he’s actually been summoned to the most dangerous place not of this world: LAIR!***
***LAIR is my plunge into the troubling fascination I have with demons! This project has been in the works for three years, and after bouncing around like a ping-pong ball between potential talents, I've been blessed to find the best possible creative team to aid me in fleshing out this story into graphic novel form.
***This narrative will NOT see the light of day without your continued support on Kickstarter! YOUR pledges can turn LAIR into something amazingly tangible and accessible to geeks of all walks of life!
What's Your Kickstarter Money For?
In the spirit of full-disclosure, LAIR cannot be created without you. Creating a comic book is very expensive. In LAIR's case, $200 per page. I have to pay Mr. Navas to illustrate my ideas and Mr. Comodo to color them. Although they think I'm a pretty awesome guy, there's no way I can have them create this graphic novel for free. Time is money, and great work definitely needs to be paid for. With your help, LAIR becomes a reality and you get proof of that reality in tangible comic book form.

Meet The Team...
Gilbert Deltrez (Writer & Creator of LAIR) - An 80’s kid who ritually consumed comics, wrestling, and cheese-filled horror movies during his daily childhood. Always found himself rooting for villains. Gilbert finally understands why and credits that reasoning to his dual identity crisis. He attended the school of hard knocks in comic writing while graduating with his B.A. in English. He crowdfunded two successful Kickstarter campaigns in 2014 & 2016 to self-publish the first three issues of his psycho-spiritual apocalypse comic, "Under The Flesh" (Escape Comics). He currently teaches at a rough inner city school empowering minds to greatness in the midst of fulfilling his dream: To craft narratives featuring positive characters which reflect a marginalized demographic that's too often stereotyped. Boldness creates change. He dares to be bold. He calls it an underdog thing! Cute gamer wife and pet cat Wesker, aside, (although he's a dog person), demons are in fact his best friends. Hence, LAIR.
Sebastian Navas (Illustrator & Co-Creator of LAIR) - Known as the demon whisperer. He was fascinated with the comic book art form from an early age and forged himself into a self-taught illustrator of the highest order. He also holds a technical degree as an elite Graphic Designer and currently studies at the Continental with renowned Professor Alvaro Fontana. Some of his published credits range from "Oxisus" which featured in the weekly (Tiempo Uruguay newspaper), "Cisplatin" (Apocalypse Editorial), and "Sicotronica" (Zignone Comics). Sebastian's also worked on video games, storyboarding "Latifa" for the Saudi Girls Revolution Saga (NA3M). He now eagerly brings you LAIR and is counting on your support! He has a beautiful son, a wife, and pet demon to feed!
Davi Comodo (Colorist & Co-Creator of LAIR) - A professional colourist who has been drawing all his life. After a few years in advertising, as a designer, Davi left a classical guitar college. In 2012, he decided to work on his childhood dream: Coloring things. Demon things. In secret. Oh, and of course comic books and illustration. His published works includes “Battle Star Gallactica: Starbuck” (Dynamite), “Evil Dead 2” (Spacegoat Publishing), “Starcaster” (Ctrl+Alt+Del), “Starcraft Battlegrounds Posters” (Red Bull/Blizzard), “Mirror’s Edge: Exordium” (Dark Horse).
Deyvison Manes (Letterer Extraordinaire to LAIR) - Is fluent in demonic syntax and can translate over a hundred different demon dialects, as well as Latin and Pig Latin. He is also a screenwriter and graphic designer. He has been working with independent comics for the past 5 years as a writer, editor, and letterer on his own personal projects, like "Sideral Justice." Some of Deyvison's lettering credits also include "Onodata," "Furia," "Classified,""Preble's Boys," and "The Few and Cursed."
Risks and challenges
I have successfully crowdfunded two comic book projects via Kickstarter and fully delivered on all previous obligations.
Barring any critical injury, demonic possession, alien abduction, mind control, or death, there is absolutely no risk that comes with completion of LAIR. The script is already complete and Sebastian, Davi and Deyvison, are eagerly awaiting getting to the digitally awesome part of breathing life into this story ASAP!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
