About this project

We're Empire Comics Lab, good to meet you!

Our first comic, Cemetery Plots #1, is a horror anthology in the old school, EC vein.  We have a horror host, D.O. Mann, a security guard at Riverview Cemetery, introduce each story and the subjects run the gamut of monsters, mad scientists, creepies and crawlies!  Our inaugural comic was very well-received and the first printing is sold out.

So, why have a Kickstarter?  The answer is simple; we want to pay our creators for their professional quality work.  All of these incredibly talented guys and gals gave up time with their families and friends to produce this book just because they love comics and we feel that needs to be rewarded.  They earned it.

The second reason is that we want to go back to print for CP#1 and (hopefully) help finance CP#2.  The gang is back for more and we're working on the new book now.

If we can make our goal of $3,500, we can accomplish all I've stated above, but, if we can hit a stretch goal or two... we can help finance our new book "ACTIONTHOLOGY!"  We are broadening our horizons and getting into the superhero/action genre.  This book is due out in late 2015, so we're asking for your help!

Risks and challenges

We're creating comics from scratch and there are always changes to be made and the uncertainty of a creator missing a deadline. Since we are focusing on anthologies, we have set up teams to create more work than we need for any particular issue. When deadlines are met, we are already underway for another issue with completed work!

We're also at the mercy of printers. At times, a book might be delayed for a bit due to printing or shipping. As always, we will offer digital copies of our comics that are available on day and date of print but, in case of a printing delay, we can always hook you up with a digital copy so you can get your Empire fix!
