Fiends started out as an experiment back in 2013, to see if one could produce a quality comic on home photo equipment. Fiends #1 was completely hand created, folded, stapled and distributed. readers liked it, but I knew more could be done.

 Fiends 2 switched to a Magazine format and was printed professionally. The Magazines style began to form and with issue 3, Fiends began to get the "look" that I always had in my mind. That 1970's sitting on the rack in a pulpy smelling news stand feel. But I knew it could be better....

 Now, with issue 4, I feel it has become even more, of what I loved as a kid. Monsters and Things, slugging it out for world domination.......what more do ya want? The look is even more stream-lined. More monsters, more unique pro artists, more features, more pages, more fun.

 creators this issue are Joe (x-men, Marvel colorist) Rosas. He was The colorist on X-men during Jim Lees classic run.

Dave(Blood Reign, Dark Visions) Curl, one of the original creators during the Golden age of the B/W Independent years.

Brad Moore, DOOM//THRASH, METAL concept and CD cover artist. He's done too many comics to mention here....google him and get schooled.

Douglas Frey, an incredible unique artist and visionary.

Michael Joseph. (Stain, House of Evil, vigilante on the streets of Saint Louis.)

I don't think I need to introduce Timothy Vigil. His name speaks for itself. Tim has done this issues alt cover which comes in 2 versions and will be un-locked if we can met the goals.

New cover artist\painter RF Pangborn brings a new feel to the alternate covers. His style gives Fiends even more of that classic 70's monster mag feel. 

And me, little snot nosed Timmy.being in the comics industry. It's the book I would like to buy, if I saw it on the store racks. Hopefully, you'll feel the same way.

Fiends #4  is why I still create after 35 years of 

Risks and challenges

No risks. I am known to deliver my kicks on time but mostly, before the deadline. Fiends 4 is no different.
Book is half complete and will be on time just like all the other kickstarters I've done.
Nothing to it, but to do it.
