AMAZING! You've stretched it once, now let's stretch again:
FUNDED!!! But there's no rest for the wicked. Time to stretch:
Help us fund WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS? a comic anthology inspired by Dante's Inferno. A new collection of original indie comics from the same publishing house that brought you POE TWISTED, SHAKESPEARE SHAKEN, UNFASHIONED CREATURES: A Frankenstein Anthology, and A SOUL DIVIDED/CAGED IN FLESH, inspired by Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.
Our newest anthology is 100+ pages of hellacious comics from 23 infernal creators! Claim your copy hot off the press.. and we do mean that literally!
It's rough making your way in show business. Everyone wants something from you, and no one is cutting you any breaks. Your boss is a real beast, and you're performing for the dregs of society.
Also, you're in Hell.
A hapless hero who can't do anything right makes his stumbling way through a series of worsening gigs, but interspersed along the way, readers are treated to stories of how the torture goes when the pros are in charge.
Red Stylo Media's fresh take on Dante's Inferno gives eleven teams of artists and writers the chance to dig into the depths of one hell of a backlot, a behind-the-scenes look at an infernal studio where the last thing you want to hear is, "Cut!"
What Fresh Hell Is This? features new looks at each of Dante's nine circles of hell, along with a look at the origin of the worst of all studio bosses, Satan. You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll cheer dashing heroes and boo sneaky villains.
You'll look back on your own dastardly deeds of yesteryear. Because after all, it's not just the truly evil who find a seat in Hell.

Risks and challenges
The $4666 we’re raising goes toward the actual cost of printing and shipping the book, as well as fulfilling rewards. This will be Red Stylo's 8th comic anthology and our 9th Kickstarter campaign. Production on our INFERNO anthology will be completed by the campaign midpoint. Red Stylo has a proven track record of delivering comic anthologies (just check out our back-catalog!), and we have collaborated with this printer in the past. The quality of their product is OUTSTANDING, and the print order will be placed within days of funding.
While our print order is being run, Red Stylo’s team will prep rewards for shipping, including individual stories and PDFs. Our goal amount covers the cost of printing and shipping books to Red Stylo's warehouse only, but we have chosen rewards and shipping options within our regular production budget for an anthology and the cost of these items has been considered and accounted for. We also have an International partner for shipping books, allowing us to charge slightly less than usual for overseas (from us) backers.
All rewards will be delivered before November 15, 2019, which makes this book a phenomenal gift idea for the holidays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
