About


Horror, mystery, and adventure await you in these three exciting graphic novels!

Plus, enjoy nearly 200 pages of free included with your pledge!

FUNDED! Pledge with confidence, this WILL HAPPEN!

"WOUNDS." Is madness a way to survive the zombie apocalypse? Gary Scott Beatty drops us into a world where nothing is beyond doubt, except a father's concern for his family. If you enjoy that "What th-?" factor in graphic novels, you'll enjoy "Wounds." 56 full color pages.

"The story keeps you guessing till the end." — Troy Vevasis.

"JAZZ: MIDNIGHT." Five standalone stories on a central theme come together with a twist — like a masterful, cool jazz solo! Beatty’s illustration style, inspired by '50s jazz album cover design, drops readers into the late night music clubs of 1957. 56 pages in glorious '50s black and white.

"Gary Scott Beatty continues to stretch the boundaries of comic books, graphic design, album artwork and storytelling all in one fell swoop." – Tom Arvis.

“WORLDS: THREE STORIES BY GARY SCOTT BEATTY” features stories, gallery pages, and articles, in 96 full color pages!

• Adam Among the Gods: Science's revered first immortal before the rise of the New Humans is ugly and deformed, worshiped, undying and hopelessly alone. Illustrated by James (Saint Germaine) Lyle.

"This is a wonderful morality tale done in the tradition of the Twilight Zone."— Odinson, Lone Star Comics Archivist, My Comic Shop.com.

• Seductions: A vampire wakes 10 years after each feeding and he must always decide: heart's desire or dinner? Pencils by Bill (Oz) Bryan.

“Seductions draws the reader into the vampire’s hunt for ‘life’ and love. One feels his pain even as one loathes his manipulative manner. Seductions earns four Tonys.” — Tony Isabella, Comic Buyers Guide #1644.

• “Jazz: Cool Birth” is a murder mystery in a 1957 jazz club, with color illustrations inspired by '50s album cover design by Gary Scott Beatty.

"A fantastic blend of art and text." — Paul Bishop, Bish’s Beat

"INDIE COMICS" #1, #2 and #3 is the anthology that premiered Beatty's Gods of Aazurn stories! A variety of creators share horror, adventure and more. 52 full color PDF pages each x 3 = 156 pages of excitement!

I’ve been entertaining readers with thoughtful and exciting stories for many years, since winning a Xeric Grant for “Jazz: Cool Birth” (one of the stories in "Worlds"). Bleeding Cool called my comic, “Number One,” one of the best indie comics of 2014!

I’m looking forward to placing beautifully printed copies of my horror, mystery and adventure stories in your hands to place on your bookshelf!

I love the one-on-one with people who are truly interested in my books. People here are like me: we support indie books from creative people. We like different. I’ve backed many projects here and have discovered many incredible creators. 

And check this out! Since the books AND the freebies are already produced, nearly all of the Kickstarter money raised will go toward printing and shipping you books!

 

• 5 full color Beatty horror story downloads, most brand new, 50 pages!

• 3 Aazurn magazine downloads, 60 pages!

• Horror Plus: A horror download bonanza! Six books, 86 pages!

Risks and challenges

Little risk — the books and extras are ready to go! I’m a planner, and I’ve thought through the processes needed to deliver these quality books into your hands, just as I have with the comic book projects I’ve handled these many years.

I’m eager to share these graphic novels with you. My goal is to be sure every backer is satisfied and entertained!
