About this project
TEETH is an ambitious comics project written by Eric Palicki (www.ericpalicki.com) and illustrated by J. Christopher Greulich (www.fadingsunstudio.blogspot.com). TEETH seeks to explore the supernatural elements of dark fantasy and horror fiction from a historical perspective and to reclaim those elements, to some degree, from the clutches of TWILIGHT. For those already familiar with mainstream comics, TEETH will be similar to the DC Comics/Wildstorm series Planetary in execution.
A historical account of an alleged werewolf provided the initial kernel of inspiration for TEETH. From Wikipedia: "A notable exception to the association of Lycanthropy and the Devil, comes from a rare and lesser known account of an 80-year-old man named Thiess. In 1692, in Jurgenburg, Livonia, Thiess testified under oath that he and other werewolves were the Hounds of God. He claimed they were warriors who went down into hell to do battle with witches and demons."
TEETH re-imagines Thiess as an immortal, still alive in the present, still a ‘Hound of God,’ still doing battle with demons and witches. Thiess carries the burden of almost 400 hundred years’ worth of history and myth. TEETH will explore the myriad ways in which history and myths are seamlessly connected.
The creators intend to produce at least six issues of TEETH. Kickstarter will be used to fund production costs only for the first issue.
Kickstarter support will cover the following expenses:
1. Art supplies (paper, ink, etc.) for the production of a five-page prologue/preview story and the first 22-page issue of the projected six-issue series.
2. A professional colorist and a professional letterer to provide finishes over J. Christopher Greulich’s linework for the first 22-page issue of TEETH.
3. A full-color print run of TEETH #1. The size of the print run will be determined largely by Kickstarter pledges.
4. Production of a limited number of ‘ashcan’ comics, which will include an exclusive 5-page preview/prologue story, and posters, to be used for promotional purposes at conventions and online.
