Comics getting a bit too tame and safe for your tastes? Do you crave a brutal story of demons clawing up from hell and good girls turning very, very bad? 'Proserpina' is 50+ full-color pages about what happens if you mix Breaking Bad with Spawn (and a good dose of gore and sexiness on top of it). It’s about all the things a supervillain comic should be about. Brutal action, sexy evil maidens, badass supervillains and demons… and the potential for darkness that lies in every one of us.
Meet Our Maiden, Valentina
When she discovers her mom has been battling cancer for two years and is now close to losing the fight, good girl Valentina breaks bad.
Knowing her mother’s — the woman who raised her alone, without ever a complaint — only chance is an expensive treatment, something awakes inside her. She decides to rob a bank, no matter the consequences.
Once everything goes predictably wrong, and a group of corrupt cops decides to rough her up (and maybe worse) for fun, Valentina is saved by former-supervillain-turned-hobo Caligula. Seeing something in the desperate girl, Caligula decides to train her… and gets her to sell her soul to the devil, turning her in a Fire Skull Maiden.
As she’s forced to commit unspeakable acts to keep her end of the bargain and save her mom, Valentina realizes being bad doesn’t feel that bad.
In fact, it feels just right.
WHO IS MISTER X?
My name is Shaun Skyson(Mister X) and I am the creator and writer of "Proserpina". I have a passion in comics.
Last year I almost gave up my dream to write comics and settle as a truck driver for life until I came across an awesome community of comic artist who loves comics as much as I do. I decided to create Proserpina(which I first called "Fire Skull Maiden)
I always wanted to create comics since I was a child. But getting into the comics industry is tough. The reason I created this Kickstarter is so I can quit my job and create comics full time as an independent creator.
I really want to give you guys a comic that will blow your mind. I hired top comic artist to provide you the samples you see, and with your help I can make this comic happen. Thank you for time and support...
Mister X (Shaun Skyson)
My name is Mister X (Shaun Skyson) and I am the main writer of Proserpina. I have loved comics all my life, and have been writing and drawing them as a hobby for just as long.
But lately, I feel the comic book industry is losing its edge. Mainstream comics are getting softer and safer, depriving fans of the hard-hitting stories many of us love.
I want sexy.
I want badass.
I want brutal.
And that’s why I’m committed to make Proserpina happen. It's just a good story of sexy, brutal villains and badass action.
Proserpina will be a physical-only comic book, 50+ pages long, full color.
I have already invested $5000 of my own funds on this project. Now I need your help to bring it past the finish line (and into your hands)!
The funds raised will be used to fill out the team as well as covering printing and shipping costs. Right now, the team includes me and Irati Pardo (Zeta) as inker and colorist. With your help, we can get talented artists on board to finish the book.
The campaign goal is what it takes to make 'Proserpina' a reality at 50 pages. Any funds above the minimum will be used to increase the length of Proserpina:
