Hello Everyone!

Dan Nokes from 21st Century Sandshark Studios here, with a new Kickstarter project for your consideration!  This one, if successful with fund a one volume omnibus for my 12 issue maxi-series THE PARANORMALS, to celebrate its 10th anniversary!

First some background: In 2002 I had released my first book: THE REPTILE AND MISTER AMAZING.  I had worked on that title for about 8 years off and on.  It was a super hero book and quite frankly I had grown weary of the whole super-hero deal.  I wanted to delve deeper into mythology, and had become fascinated by such books and TV shows as Angel, Buffy, Sandman, Preacher, and Fables.  I was rumaging through my art bin and found an old sketch from 1995 entitled THE PARANORMALS.  The pic was rough but something was definitely there!

Fast forward to 2008.  I had finished the series and had collected the 12 issues into two trade paperbacks.  But I had always wanted to do a big one volume set.
