Sam Euman, Archaeologist, has always dreamed of discovering something unique. Something lost to time and history. Something that would change the world!
Unfortunately, for Sam, his discovery could very well bring about the END of civilization!
Awakening from a strange, erotic dream, Sam is somehow pulled to a remote region of the Sahara and uncovers an idol. An idol that doesn't exist in any text or book.
Smuggling it home to study it more, Sam is unaware of the entity that rests within the idol itself! An entity that is powered by the energy released from climax!
And Sam just gave it exactly what it wanted--to be among people.
The Idol is a 4 part story and this Kickstarter is for issue 1. I would hesitate to call this a horror book because it doesn't really fit the horror genre. It's more of a supernatural thriller. The Idol is also an adult, 'R' rated book that contains sexual situations, some language and some nudity.
The funding raised here will be used to pay the artist, colorist and printer.
The story explores the power of sex, how humans use sex for various purposes and exploring what the world would be like if there were no inhibitions about sex. Is it any wonder the book will be 'R' rated?
The Idol has been created and written by Mark Stanislawski and co-created and drawn by Gabriel Rodriguez (No, not THAT Gabriel Rodriguez)!
Below we have a special preview of the finished cover by Donna Black, the (uncolored) Kickstarter Sex Cover Variant (censored for Kickstarter, of course!) by Raul Orte and the uncolored first four pages of the book that are lettered. Enjoy!

Currently, Good Ideas Comics offers digital copies of our B & W horror anthology, Rigor Mortis, on platforms such as Comixology and ComixCentral. The creators of the stories in these books deserve more! If we hit this stretch goal, every backer who pledged to get a physical copy of The Idol #1, will also get a physical copy of Rigor Mortis #1! Here's the cover to whet your appetite!
I would love to hit this stretch goal because, if we do, the backers who are getting a physical copy of The Idol #1 will be eligible to get a special Kickstarter exclusive Idol-themed print by our cover artist, Donna Black! It's sure to knock your socks off and , maybe, give the idol some added climax energy!
Share the Kickstarter link and spread the word! Thank you!
Risks and challenges
The book is mostly done so I don't see a problem making the deadline. As long as we reach the goal, the only risk is if I get hit by a bus or something! Obviously, I will keep everyone updated every step of the way regarding how everything is progressing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
