Scapula is my creator-owned series, celebrating the best part of any comic: the bad guys! First self-published in 2007, Scapula then made the leap to webcomics, running continuously for over seven years and in several book collections. In 2017 a new series of jumbo magazine-sized comics began with Scapula and the Sinister Monster Doom Legion, successfully funded by all of the awesome supporters on Kickstarter.
The adventure continues with this new collection of horror and rock-themed stories showcasing the female characters of Scapula, along with some brand new additions to the cast (and that ol’ grump Scapula is back, of course).
A trilogy of terror awaits you in these pages…
Naughty young Nazz and her crew The Halloween Gang have entered the roughest, toughest battle of the bands ever…but they didn’t bother to see what happens to the losers.
Will these kids survive the carnage, especially when they’re up against the queen of shock?
The doubly-dangerous gangster Jemini has returned with her most powerful weapon ever…perky Dio Sukuri! But whose team is the little brat really on?
…and what dread power does this mysterious weirdo wield? Whatever it is, every villain wants it!
Who will find power, fortune, and romance in the midst of double-crosses and two-timing? It’s the strangest gang war/love affair of all time, and you’ll be along for the ride!
The mind of a madman is a bad place to be, especially if he desires you…so what happens to the people who are locked away in Scapula’s subconscious? Can five unusual women break free from the dark depths, and are they willing to betray one another to escape?
‘How to Join the Halloween Gang’, with a complete rundown of everything you need to know about surviving in this crew of idiots!
The origin story of Jemini and how she became such a vicious (but trendy) mob boss.
‘The Many Loves of Scapula’, with the complete tragic history of how a jerk with a skull-face struggles to get a date.
Plus pin-up paintings and bonus mini-comics!
SPECIAL ADD-ON ARTWORK
“Halloween Gang Class of 2019” – Returning from the very first Scapula Kickstarter by popular demand, special caricatures will be made of the higher backers (see Rewards list below) as members of the ‘elite’ Halloween Gang! See yourself in action as a punk rocker, supervillain, or however you see your bad side!
Artwork is 8.5”x11” color print on matte paper, signed by the artist, along with a print-ready PDF digital download.
Other artwork options include an original Scapula character drawing of your choice (and if you don’t like Scapula for some unholy reason, substitute your favorite villain from comics, film, games, or whatever!).
Tricks and treats await you, ghoulish gang!
Once again, thank you so very much for reading this rant; creating and publishing SCAPULA is still one of the greatest joys of my artistic career, and I’m eternally grateful for everyone who has helped bring the series this far. Here’s hoping this next chapter will continue to amuse (and baffle, frighten, etc) readers everywhere!
Risks and challenges
The comics and artwork are all completed and ready to go to press (only the Halloween Gang caricatures need to be drawn, but this does not affect the book’s production schedule). I will be using the same print company who did such a great job on Scapula and the Sinister Monster Doom Legion, thus guaranteeing the best printing quality possible. Once the campaign has met its goal production will begin immediately.
This is my third Kickstarter campaign, following the successful funding of Scapula: World’s Worst Villain (2014, with Arsenal Comics & Games) and Scapula and the Sinister Monster Doom Legion (2017).
