About

Man of God is the first title published by Pinwheel Press.  Issue one is listed in the March issue of Previews and ships to comic book retailers on May 2nd, 2012.  A convention exclusive cover by Anthony Castrillo will be debut at C2E2 in April.  The goal of Pinwheel Press is to produce the highest quality independent comic book on the stands.

Written by Craig Partin, penciled by industry vet Yvel Guichet (DC, Valiant, Dark Horse), inks by Stu Berryhill and lettered by Jonathan Swinney.  Each issue will ship to retailers with two covers, one by Guichet and one by Dan Brereton (The Nocturnals).  Man of God is a supernatural horror mystery set over the backdrop of a brewing mob war.  A dark, often violent, tale of redemption and the quest for the truth.  Filled with deep complex characters and razor sharp twists and turns, each issue promises to leave you wanting more.

In addition to a full Man of God story, each issue will feature two back ups.  Land of the Flies, written and illustrated by Stu Berryhill, lettered by George Warner.  And the Adventures of Bennie and Butch, Written by Craig Partin, illustrated by comic legend Bob Hall and lettered by George Warner. 

Each issue will also feature a convention exclusive cover.  Issue one by Anthony Castrillo, issue two by The Gurch, issue three by Tim Vigil, issue four by Don Perlin, issue five by Bob Hall, issue six tbd.  Convention covers are offered as Kickstarter rewards and this will be the only way to get them outside of attending conventions across the country.

Kickstarter funds will be used to continue the development of the series and allow us to maintain the high level of quality that we believe our fans deserve.  To help us stay ahead with art and printing costs as well as getting the team out to conventions to promote the book and expose it to new readers.

If our campaign is successful, everyone who helps us will receive a thank you printed in the second issue along with each level of reward.  If we are really successful ($10,000 or more) we will create a Kickstarter exclusive cover to issue #2 and give a copy to everyone who has a package coming (Those who receive a pdf reward can receive a copy but will need to pay $5 shipping, $15 international). 

Thank you.
