Rat House is back with another unique offering of Independent Comic Love. As you can see, we are as cheap as ever!! No video, no fancy layouts...just cool Independent comics that you WILL NOT find in Previews or in your local store. (Unless they are cool enough to order some that is.) This time, we explore The bizarre world of Paula DeMaine and her DEVIL JACK.
Signed Exclusive Devil Jack #1 Adult cover included with Art Portfolio Tier.
Regular Cover. Paula DeMaine, wielding the terrible power of the Jack.

Devil Jack was first published in 1994, being in the same issue of Previews as Witchblade #1, but in fact, releasing a few weeks earlier. The first issue was a smash hit, with 15,000 orders for the first issue. Unfortunately, the Independent Market, at that time, was beginning its death throws. The Indy market eventually imploded, taking Devil Jack with it after its third issue.

My Pappy always said you can't keep a good Devil down. (Pappy had issues....) 2019 seems like a good time for the Jack to return, so that's exactly what I am setting out to do.

 Devil Jack is the story of Paula DeMaine, The latest in a long family line of watchers and protectors. Dedicated to protecting a device called  the "Jack", an ancient gem that acts as a mystical prison for a long imprisoned Demon King. Each Protector, while wearing the Jack, has the ability to siphon and use the Devil Kings powers against him and the forces of Chaos and Death.  Complicating matters, is the kingdom of Heaven who are also sworn to destroy the Jack, and whoever is wearing it.

Issue #1 will serve as an origin tale, as well as a lead in to issue 2 of Blood Reign.

We also would like to introduce new characters and comics this time around, so with each tier reached, I will include a new #1 issue of something new. Characters and concepts that I have had in my head, or is finished, but has never been published. How many  new comics would you like? That will be up to you!

Risks and challenges

Risks are always possible when dealing with printers and whatever problems may or may not come up. Having said that, My track record for getting books turned around and into the hands of fans is top notch. I expect the same record to continue.
