WHAT'S NIGHTMARE WORLD? AND WHY KICKSTARTER?
NIGHTMARE WORLD is a graphic novel horror anthology series consisting of 52 stand-alone genre-hopping eight-page tales of terror that, over the course of the series, weave into one giant story about Lucifer awakening Cthulhu and partnering with Lilith to initiate the second war with Heaven.

The Nightmare World Omnibus
The Nightmare World Omnibus



Each story is written by Dirk Manning (TALES OF MR. RHEE, WRITE OR WRONG: A WRITER'S GUIDE TO CREATING COMICS) and illustrated by a different artist or art team.

The first 3/4ths of the series were collected in three TPBs from Image Comics from 2009-2011, with the highly-anticipated fourth (and final) volume never seeing print after editorial changes took the publishing plans in a different direction.

The purpose of this campaign is two-fold: To finally bring the "lost" final installment of NIGHTMARE WORLD to print in TPB form as NIGHTMARE WORLD Volume 4: "The Mourning After" and also to collect all four volumes into one deluxe 500 page hardcover as THE NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS, all through Devil's Due Publishing.

Yeah, we could have run two separate campaigns (one for each book)... but we're not money-grubbing jerks. Instead, we're offering both the standalone TPB edition of NIGHTMARE WORLD Volume 4 and the NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS (which includes all the stories and covers from all four TPBs) in one 500 page hardcover omnibus. This way you have the full series in whichever format you'd prefer -- or both!

(And for those of you who have the first three TPBs and are wondering, yes, the order of all 52 stories will be completely "reshuffled" into one definitive "Director's Cut" order for the NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS, giving readers of the TPBs a brand new reading experience with the OMNIBUS.

OUR STRETCH GOALS = NO LIFE 'TIL LEATHER(BOUND)

As mentioned, through this campaign you can get the standalone copy of the NIGHTMARE WORLD Volume 4 trade paperback or the hardcover NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS. Please note, though, for the purposes of this campaign a majority of the Stretch Goals will be focused on making the Kickstarter Exclusive edition of the NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS as deluxe as possible... with the ultimate goal being to make the *Kickstarter Exclusive* edition of the NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS leatherbound with golden gilded pages and gold stamped lettering to boot, upgrading the already impressive NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS to -- for Kickstarter backers only -- THE NIGHTMARE WORLD BIBLE.

Yes... really:

WE DID IT! We unlocked the NIGHTMARE WORLD BIBLE variant of the OMNIBUS! This version will be strictly *Kickstarter Exclusive* and never available anywhere else!

A lot of you have waited a long time for an omnibus edition of NIGHTMARE WORLD... and even for you horror fans new to the series, who wouldn't want a big ol' leatherbound horror anthology to impress your friends, right?

To reiterate, if you want a nice leather-bound version of this book complete with the fancy ribbon bookmark, the foil imprint text, and all that good stuff... this will be the only way to get it. The Deluxe Editions will be print to order... and that's it. Any future versions of this book released in comic shops or sold at conventions will be a standard hardcover edition of the book.

STRETCH GOALS? OH YEAH, WE'VE GOT STRETCH GOALS...

During the last two Kickstarter campaigns I ran for the NIGHTMARE WORLD spin-off comic series TALES OF MR. RHEE we unlocked a combined total of 20(!!!) Stretch Goals (7 for RHEEv2 and 13 for RHEEv3)... and given that I'm hoping we can unlock the NIGHTMARE WORLD BIBLE through this campaign with our 12th and final Stretch Goal (so far), I want to let you all know what we're working towards along the way... so here you go!

I believe we can do this... so let's make it happen, everyone! The more pledges we earn, the more I can funnel those funds back into giving you more and more free stuff -- and ultimately an even more deluxe book!

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING GOOD HORROR.

Truly... thank you. NIGHTMARE WORLD was started by me as  a passion project to show the power and potential of the short horror story anthology format in comics during a time when it wasn't in favor in the comic industry, and NIGHTMARE WORLD also served as a vehicle for so many of my talented comic artist artist friends who were hungry to "break-in" to the comic industry to show what they (and we together) were capable of doing when given the chance.

Fast-forward more than 13 years since NIGHTMARE WORLD started as a humble online self-published webcomic series, and not only is it regarded by readers as one of the best horror comic series of the last several decades, but many of the comic book artists in this book have gone on to work for virtually every major comic book publisher in the industry, including Marvel, DC, Image, IDW, Dark Horse, 2000 A.D., Boom! and more.

Despite the evergreen support of so many readers and horror fans across the country, horror comics are still a tough sell to publishers, which is why I'm forever grateful to those of you taking the time to directly support the publication of books like NIGHTMARE WORLD on Kickstarter.

Thank you for your passion, thank you for allowing books like this to survive and thrive, and thank you for supporting good horror. May those of you most faithful to Cthulhu be eaten first when the NIGHTMARE WORLD begins!

Risks and challenges

Any risk in this campaign is very hard to fathom, as 95% of the artwork for this book has already been completed with us simply waiting to reach our goal and then send the files to the printer upon the successful completion of this campaign. That being said, “Acts of God/Cthulhu” are always possible, such as printing and manufacturing delays, products getting lost in the shipping process, or human error resulting in something not being sent.

That's why Devil's Due Entertainment (with whom I am working to both publish this book and fulfill campaign orders) has worked so hard to create an iron-clad system to cater to Kickstarter backers. Each person has a file in which we will be keeping tally of what has been sent, what is still pending, and any other problems that may have transpired post-reward-sending.

Both myself and Devil's Due are in this for the long haul and we both see crowdfunding as an important component in the future of creator-owned comic publishing. Many of you out there have been very supportive of my efforts in the past, and we want you back for many more campaigns in the future. That only happens if you're happy with how this one goes, and I am well aware of that. This is why I will personally be overseeing everything every step of the way to make sure everyone is taken care of properly. I'll be in touch with regular (but not excessive) updates to make sure each and every one of you is kept "in the loop" throughout the whole process. Thanks again for supporting good horror! Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!
