Gore Shriek returns for its 30th Anniversary with TWO big brand new issues! 

This campaign is for Volume 1 which will be released this May. (Volume 2 with an anticipated released on Halloween, will have its own Kickstarter campaign later this year).

We have tried to make the rewards for your pledges to be as exciting as possible!! We are offering signed editions, ultra limited Prestige Squarebound Editions limited to just 100 serial-numbered copies per cover version, original art, original vintage Gore Shriek™ comic sets, spectacular Gore Shriek™ Zombie busts that are handcrafted and serial-numbered (see below), and even your very own Gore Shriek cover!!

These new editions of Gore Shriek™ come to you from Rough House Publishing in conjunction with FantaCo Publications. Both issues are licensed and authorized by the series creator and trademark holder, Tom Skulan.

Volume 1 will be 48-pages, carefully crafted to LOOK, FEEL, READ and even SMELL like the original Gore Shriek™ comic books - without any advertising. There are two completely different covers for Volume 1. These are the real deal folks and they will become prized additions to your horror comic collections!!

The special squarebound prestige editions will be limited to just 100 serial numbered copies per cover edition FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD. These ultra high quality editions will be printed on top quality white book paper and be bound in thick card stock covers. They will be completely different than the regular newsstand editions. They are certain to become sought after collectors items after delivery. Get yours NOW as they will ONLY be available to pledges through this Kickstarter campaign. NONE are being sent to stores.

As you can see, we're not messing around!! We've got absolutely terrific horror tales illustrated by some of the best artists working today. 

So come join in the celebration!!

We have so many wonderful items as rewards, and if we can hit our goal quickly we have even more exciting add-ons to offer you later!!

Share our link with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+, LinkedIn and any other social sites you are a member of. Share with your horror & comic groups too. There are a lot of people that would love to know about this campaign!!

That's all for today. Watch for regular updates. Thanks everyone!

Risks and challenges

Probably the greatest risk to this project is the fact that we are working with a large number of artists and writers around the world. While everyone is aware of their deadlines, things can, and often do, come up which could delay a story or two. That could delay the entire issue.
We will post regular updates along with newly received art samples as the month goes on. (International contributors are responsible for their respective customs fees).

Everyone here at FantaCo and at Rough House are working to insure that this first volume is on time, and worthy of the name Gore Shriek!!
