Hi everyone!

This is Michael Moreci, one of the people behind this drive. I wanted to give some information on the projects I've been working on, one has just been released, the other forthcoming.

First off, if you read Hack/Slash, you'll find a backup story that just began in issue #1. The story, Hoax Hunters, is co-written by myself and Steve Seeley, with art from JM Ringuet and letters from Jim Campbell. A preview of the first page is below. If you like story, which will be running in Hack/Slash all year, please spread the word on it. Twitter, blogs, reviews--it all helps!

Also, my debut graphic novel, Quarantined, is set for a Spring release with Markosia. The team is all Sleepless Phoenix alums: art from Monty Borror, colors from Lauren Anne Sharp, and letters from Jim Campbell.

You can check out a 12-page preview here:

And pre-order through Amazon:

Message Page Reminder

Posted by Michael Moreci (Creator)

I've sent out emails, but want to give one final reminder to those who have generously pledged to have a message in the book. We have collected nearly every message, save a few. If you haven't sent your message in, please do so by Monday. We really need to get this book to the printer--and in everyone's hands!



"Senior Citizen" Preview

Well, things are winding down here, and we're pretty much coasting at this point, thanks to everyone's generous pledges.

Here's another preview, this one again from Simon Wyatt, who is illustrating two stories in this anthology. This one is written by Craig Ian Gilmore and titled "Senior Citizen."
