AS OF 2/6: Dennis Coyle is unable to continue with this project because of serious health complications.  Erick Marquez, illustrator of my "Prairie City Response" series, has taken his place.  See his art for the dreary short "Dying Breath" by clicking through the picture below.

Hello, Horror Fans! You're in for a treat. In Spring 2014, I published MAYFLY Vol. 1, a psychological horror serial with stellar illustrations by Dennis Coyle III.

Now, MAYFLY is back. Volume 1 introduced us to a world of strange desires at the edge of reality and death. Volume 2 journeys further into this world, as our protagonist struggles against strange new enemies and his own insatiable urges.

What is MAYFLY? It's the story of Dr. Phillip Eire, a University professor whose chance meeting within old friend plunges him into a world where strange creatures prey upon humanity and the laws of life and death do not apply.  Can Phillip save his dear friend from this bizarre fate, or is it already too late for them both?

STRETCH GOALS:

"Bad Day" by Teigan Hockman
"Bad Day" by Teigan Hockman

 At $675, MAYFLY v. 2 will gain an alternate cover by the talented Teigan Hockman! It will also be included in the digital art pack.

At $800, graphic artist Souzou will create pixelized versions of the MAYFLY cast! They'll grace the inside back cover of the print version, and will be included in the digital art pack.  (Who said creepy can't be cute?)

Risks and challenges

UPDATED 2/6:

RISKS: Very minimal. Erick is a prolific, skilled artist who can put out the intense, foreboding art this project demands. He is ready to expand the horizons of the world Dennis Coyle first put to ink in Volume 1.

CHALLENGES: Considerable, seeing as we must raise $133 in just four days! If you know someone who would love this project, please give them a nudge.
