ABOUT THIS CAMPAIGN

The TALES OF MR. RHEE ACT ONE OMNIBUS collects the first four volumes of this horror noir series in one over-sized deluxe hardcover collection.

For the OMNIBUS, we’ve remastered the art in all four of the previously published volumes that make up this collected edition Omnibus, including completely recoloring all of Volume 1. The OMNIBUS will be the only way to read and enjoy this portion of the story in full color!

While the book itself will clock in at over 550 pages, through Stretch Goals we hope to upgrade the TALES OF MR. RHEE ACT ONE OMNIBUS to the TALES OF MR. RHEE ACT ONE BIBLE with a leather binding, gold gilded pages, a stunning illustrated slipcase, and more Kickstarter Exclusive Stretch Goal content and upgrades that will be made available only by pre-ordering the book through this campaign by myself and our new series publisher Source Point Press.

EVERY PLEDGE LEVEL THAT INCLUDES THE TALES OF MR. RHEE OMNIBUS INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. While international shipping costs also continue to rise, we are working with international shipping partners to offer the fairest shipping prices we can to our international supporters.

Both shirt designs are glow-in-the-dark and will be Kickstarter Exclusive! This is the first and only time you will be able to get these shirts, so plan accordingly!
"Gimme Everything!" gets you the OMNIBUS, the beanie, both Kickstarter Exclusive shirts, and all the Stretch Goals at an amazing bundled price!

ABOUT THE SERIES
    In TALES OF MR. RHEE, Hell invades Earth for three days… then it suddenly stops. While all those who survived the “The Three Days of Darkness” choose to believe that all the monsters and demons are gone, Mr. Rhee is a magician who still knows there’s monsters and demons left and that what happened was really just the first wave of more horrors to come.

This is horror noir that will cause you to fall in love with the characters… and then yell at them when they make decisions they shouldn’t.

This is not a drill! A *VERY LIMITED* few copies of the super-deluxe NIGHTMARE WORLD BIBLE from our previous campaign! This is the Kickstarter Exclusive leatherbound edition with gold gilded pages, etc! DO NOT WAIT.
Want to be drawn into TALES OF MR. RHEE Volume 5? This is your chance! (Rampaging fire demon may or may not be included... but you can choose if you live to fight another day or die a horrible yet oddly entertaining death!)

ABOUT THE CREATOR
     I have managed or co-managed eight Kickstarters and backed over 230 projects (and counting) as of this campaign. Because of this, I am familiar with Kickstarter and I enjoy using and supporting the platform to help creators produce their passion projects. Projects that I have directly overseen include the NIGHTMARE WORLD OMNIBUS, TWIZTID HAUNTED HIGH-ONS, HOPE, and the previous TALES OF MR. RHEE campaigns.

While every campaign is unique and offers its own rewards and challenges, whenever I personally oversee a campaign, I make sure questions are answered and full backer satisfaction is ensured before, during, and after fulfillment. By partnering with new series publisher Source Point Press on this campaign there will continue to be a strong infrastructure, including in-house fulfillment and project management to ensure a seamless flow of production and communication between the company, myself, and my backers.

Dinner with Dirk! Come kick it with me (and possibly some of my crew) after a con or signing! You'll get EVERYTHING in the campaign, dinner and dessert, and more! This is the ULTIMATE V.I.P. Experience! (No, you don't have to be in cosplay... but if you want to, hey, that's awesome too!)
Dirk Manning is the author of over a dozen published graphic novels and books, has written produced screen plays, and managed over half a dozen successful Kickstarter campaigns. Want some help with a script review or running a successful crowdfunding campaign? Space is very limited, but this is your chance!

Risks and challenges

There are virtually no inherent risks in this campaign. All 550+ pages of content that will be collected in this book are already completed and press-ready, and any additional content unlocked will immediately be completed by the creative team as they are unlocked, allowing for a quick turn-around time to get the final files to the printer.

That being said, unexpected and unavoidable circumstances 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.

To that end, both Source Point Press and I all have a strong track record of customer service and transparency in product delivery and customer satisfaction that will result in making sure every backer and their orders are taken care of and treated with the utmost professional and personal courtesy. Supporting a Kickstarter project is a pact between you and us, and it’s one we will honor from pledge to delivery
