 In the streets of New York City, a lover’s quarrel unlike any other ever seen is about to begin. In an act of ultimate betrayal, Luxura is challenged by her former lover, Pontious Vanthor, to run The Monster's Gauntlet.

Hardcover Edition- Art by Greg (Dark One) Williams

 With the fierce brutality of a Warrior Queen, Luxura battles the creatures that mere humans believe only exist in their nightmares; bloodthirsty Werewolves, mindless flesh eating Zombies, Amphibian Creatures from the deepest murkiest waters and Frakenstein-like, Reanimated Creations of both science and magic, what some would consider an abomination to God. Defeat a champion from each of the 4 other boroughs of New York City….. or be defeated and bring about the destruction of all species, including her own."

In order to keep her throne, The Vampress Luxura must battle the monster gangs that run the 5 Boroughs of New York. The relative peace between the Amphibians, humanoid water breathers; the Zombie Masters, controllers of undead hordes; the Made Men, a Frankenstein-ian Mafia and the feral Garou, a fierce tribe of werewolves is put to the test as Luxura must battle each of their champions in The Gauntlet, a supernatural trial by fire.

After centuries of Luxura’s refusals to join his side and rule with him, Pontius Vanthor takes matters into his own hands, deciding that if she will not join him in his quest for domination in a Red Reign, he will remove her as an obstacle. Luxura, determined to defeat Vanthor and protect everyone and everything she holds sacred, faces what could be her toughest challenge yet and quite possibly her own destruction.

Luxura: The Monster's Gauntlet is a project that started many years ago when writer David Hayes and I started kicking around the idea of Luxura battling all the classic monsters that horror fans have come to know and love. Once we settled in on the script I then went about asking several of my artists friends to contribute to the project and what we ended up with is this incredible, all new Luxura Graphic Novella written by David Hayes & Kirk Lindo​ with stunning FULL COLOR art by:

Risks and challenges

My previous Kickstarter projects have all been successful and Backers have been very pleased with the rewards they have received.

The contents for this book is already compiled and I expect that the production will go as smoothly as my previous projects.

Here are a few comments from previous Backers:
_____

"I got my package today--I backed at the $199 "The Everything Package" level. Everything was extremely well packaged and damn, I just kept pulling more and more stuff out of the box. And that's on top of all of the downloads a while back. Everything is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to really dig into it.
Kirk is a class act. I highly recommend backing him on any project that he puts together. I will definitely keep coming back."
_____

"Wow! Got my shipment yesterday. I am really impressed at how professionally everything was packed and protected. Perfect condition. This was a very fun Kickstarter. Kirk kept me engaged throughout and delivered a great product. Thank you, can't wait till the next one."
_____

"My package arrived in the mail this afternoon. It looks great and came in good shape. Quicker than I expected as well. Glad to have it. Your Kickstarters are the best handled I've ever backed. Great job!"
