What would you do if you woke up to find your family being slaughtered by a madman in a metal mask? What if this man was the only person who could save your life once your family transformed into hideous creatures? Now your life is upside down and the world that you thought you knew just became a whole lot stranger.

Welcome to the seedy world of the Wormwood Pub, where paranormal denizens of the city gather under the noses of the oblivious human population. From his office beneath the Wormwood, Dave Tillinghast's ambivalent savior, Gabe, has been waging a one-man war against inter-dimensional bureaucrats bent on preparing our universe for subjugation to their terrible gods.

This Kickstarter campaign will fund the creation of the first issue of a planned 4 issue story arc of the comic book series The Sum of Light. Drawing from the Cthulhu mythos, the book will be full color pages with color covers and you can see what you'll be getting with the sample pages below. In the event that we go over goal, everything will be rolled over into the print edition and/or the production of further issues.

Risks and challenges

Venturing into the creator-owned territory is nothing new for me, but this would be the first time I can say it is 90% a solo venture. On the positive side, I've been challenged by this project to learn some new skills. I'm coloring my own work this time around, and I even flirted with lettering briefly, until I was persuaded to bring in a pro letterer. My new letterer will be glad to know I have Laine Lolauc on-board as editor, so word balloons scripted to contain 61 words will be kept to a minimum.
