Open your mind to the unknown, as the Horror Comic Tarot Deck answers your questions from the beyond*!

The Cards

Our cards are printed on 12-point 305gsm black-core matt card stock, which provides great color quality, sheen, and snap back. Each box comes with 78 cards (Major and Minor Arcana,) and a small booklet featuring each card and its meaning.

The artwork was gathered from many different public-domain horror comic books from the 1940s and 50s. Each image was chosen for its beauty and reminder of the cards meaning.

The Fool

Divinatory Meanings : Folly, mania, extravagance, intoxication, delirium, frenzy, bewrayment. Divinatory Meanings - Reversed : Negligence, absence, distribution, carelessness, apathy, nullity, vanity.

Death

Divinatory Meanings : End, mortality, destruction, corruption also, for a man, the loss of a benefactor for a woman, many contrarieties; for a maid, failure of marriage projects.
Divinatory Meanings - Reversed : Inertia, sleep, lethargy, petrifaction, somnambulism; hope destroyed.

 Reward Levels

The fortune-telling readings will be scheduled over Skype sessions. Watch the Kickstarter Live updates where we will do free, 3 card readings while the campaign is active.

 Yes, we will ship outside the US. Contact us and we'll calculate shipping for you. Also, if you want more than one deck, and $28 for each extra to your pledge.

Risks and challenges

The cards are all finished and a proof has even been approved. The only step we need to make is ordering for the backers.

Should any unforeseen issue come up and stymie our efforts, we will keep the backers informed on progress.

We've always shipped complete rewards for all 10 Kickstarter projects I've been a part of and rarely miss our deadline (it's happened but never more than a couple weeks.)

Thanks for the support!
