About

Here's the idea... What if the characters of Renfield and Igor were a pair of down-on-their-luck buddies in a world filled with monsters from classic horror lore BEFORE they worked for their respective legendary employers?

RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE is a "buddy story" similar to the likes of Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello, told in the tradition of the great "road pictures" of Bing & Hope.

Reinfield and Igor are two down-on-their-luck, not so bright, unemployed common workers in Victoria London who both have a crush on "working girl" Ivy Pearson. They are in danger of losing their flat when Reinfield is approached by Dr. Jekyll to run an errand to acquire ingredients for a new formula. Elsewhere, Igor is approached by Mr. Hyde to run the same errand. Reinfield and Igor  realize that they have both been hired for the same job, but they are not bright enough to figure out that both Jekyll and Hyde are the same person. They plot to go ahead and do the job for both men in order to be paid twice—and their adventures begin...

RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE will be a 32-page full color comic book written by Dan Taylor (Hero Happy Hour, Pirat Tales: Legend of the Cat O' Nine Tails, Armauraders) and art by Gavin Spence (Hero Happy Hour webcomic). This title is the first of a planned five-part series that features Renfield and Igor on a series of adventures where they encounter iconic monsters of the classic horror genre. The plan of RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE is to be published and distributed with the goal of bringing all five RENFIELD AND IGOR comic book issues to fruition.

If by any chance we exceed our original goal of $3,600, the funds will be used to produce and publish the additional RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET... titles. If we manage to successfully fund in the amount of...
