FROSTY: 'Twas The Night Before The Apocalypse is a multimedia art book with a comic book esthetic by Bobby Ray & Dennis Willman.

Our goal is to get you involved through this Kickstarter campaign to make FROSTY a reality and we can only do it with your support! Join your Master of Ceremonies, FROSTY, and sit back and relax as he tells you a terrifying tale concerning Santa Claus, mutations, gorgeous women and aliens. What should have been a simple, Northern Canadian holiday road trip for three friends turns into a nightmare beyond imagination as they finds themselves in the middle of a bloody battle between Santa Claus and his army of elves and a massive alien invasion force from Neptune. Sounds crazy, you say? Don’t worry, that’s because it is. But fortunately for us, FROSTY will help make sense of it all. Epic battles, huge armies, mutating holiday icons, re-animated backwater idiots and blood sucking alien slugs are just a few of the terrors our brave trio must face in order to not just save themselves, but possibly the world.

This multimedia project is a celebration of science fiction and 80’s style horror, as well as being a new spin on an old twist. The violence is over the top, the humor is ridiculous, the nudity is celebrated and the mood as frightening as a horror-themed Holiday story can be. Working together to create the visuals for this book, the creators commissioned a modeling cast of the highest caliber to create these stylized characters and unique visual style. Featuring the talents of Monique DuPree, Eliza Jayne, Stacey Dixon, Melantha Blackthorne, Cari Thomson, Brandy Mason, Nicole Dupre, Mel Carver, Melanie Robel, DeeDee Bigelow, Suki Peters, Marie Grace Stephens, Devanny Pinn, Samantha Ann Christianson, Mya Nguyen, Brett Wagner and legendary model/ actress Julie Strain, each character in this project has been brought to life by references some of the most talented people on the independent film scene.

FROSTY: 'Twas The Night Before The Apocalypse is a 8.5" x 11" multimedia 48 page art book with a comic book esthetic by Bobby Ray & Dennis Willman.

The money you’ll be pledging will go to help create, print, and promote this high quality book by offering it as a direct pre-order here along with Kickstarter Exclusive Giclée Art Prints, Trading Cards, a Movie Quality FROSTY Maquette (hint, hint), Original Art you'll only be able to get by jumping on early and for a few lucky people the opportunity to be immortalized in print.

Thank you for your time, consideration, and support!
