 What the Hell is KURU Anyway?

Well, I'll let my associate, Rod, clue you lovely folks in about what exactly this sexy new book is all about! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Well, I don't know what else I can add after such a thorough and well articulated introduction by the Serling brothers, but I'll give it a shot!  

     Kuru is a horror comic book series that I've been working on for the past year. The stories lean towards a Monster Movie/Science Fiction vibe with elements of Body Horror and a few Occult themes. My goal was to create a comic with crazy visuals, scary supernatural creatures and that grisly gory good stuff we all love to see in our favorite horror media. Couple that with unique, funny, likable characters and BLAZAM! You've got HELLBO-(ahem!)-you've got KURU

Volume 1 is a 66 - 70+ page book written and illustrated by me, Brian Flint. It contains one main story and a few shorter seemingly unrelated vignettes. The book is completely written and I'm finishing up the pages of the main story right now!  

Now let's talk about the...

Kuru #1 goes from a Black and White comic book to a full color book. I'll be able to hire a colorist to work on the pages. Which would be cool, because I'd get to spread a little money to other folks in the comics community!

Risks and challenges

This is my first attempt at crowd funding but I have been making comics for about 8 years. I'm no stranger to working on a deadline and getting pages done quickly. I've self published two books before. So I'm familiar with the process of dealing with printers. All the stories of book #1 are already written and are currently being penciled and inked. This is my only project at the moment and I won't be taking on any clients or try to put out other books until this one is 100% finished.
So, (barring any unforeseen catastrophes) this book is getting done!
