What is SWELL?
Swell is a collection of short horror comics all written and drawn by me. I love horror and have been wanting to try my hand at making horror comics for a long time. In the last few years I've started a few different horror projects and each time lost steam on them for one reason or another. Late last year I decided I needed to go back and finish those stories. That's where the idea for Swell came in.
What will SWELL look like?
Swell will be printed in black and white and will be around 40 pages in length. Some of the stories are as long as 15 pages, others as short as a single page. If the first issue of Swell does well I'd love to do more! Making horror comics is exactly as fun as I'd hoped it would be.

What are the rewards?
There are a variety of reward tiers for you to choose from:
For $5 you'll receive a PDF of Swell and my eternal gratitude.
For $10 you'll receive the print and PDF versions of Swell.
For $25 you'll receive a one-of-a-kind pen and marker post-it note drawing as well as the print and PDF versions of Swell.
For $50 dollars you'll receive a one-of-a-kind Shrinky Dink drawn by me that can be used as a keychain, pin, or charm as well as the print and PDF versions of Swell.
For $100 you'll receive a 9"x12" page of original art from my sci-fi comic BIOME (which can be read HERE) as well as the print and PDF versions of Swell. This reward tier is limited and is first come first serve! Not all pages of BIOME will be available but you'll get to choose from an assortment of pages. (Limit of 5)
For $200 you'll receive an original, one-of-a-kind 9"x12" pen and ink horror-themed illustration as well as the print and PDF versions of Swell. You'll be able to provide some direction for the drawing and I'll take it from there! (Limit of 5)
Risks and challenges
Considering the low cost of printing in black and white and the relatively short page length of the comic there aren't many risks involved. Making all of the other rewards such as original art, shrinky dinks, and post-it drawings will take some time but are, of course, entirely doable.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
