Simply put: all of the individuals involved in this project LOVE the horror genre. We grew up on many of the classic horror and psychological thrillers and wanted to share an original tale that we hope will entertain and scare you!
The idea for the book came out of the passion all the creators have for comics. We have known each other for years now and most of us met through working conventions, selling our individual projects. Wanting to create more comics we decided it would be fun to collaborate on a short story horror anthology.
1 Frightful Night, is a 28 page horror anthology. With five stories:
"Chango: The Killer Ape-Man" - Revenge has been around since the beginning of time. In this tale, we learn not to mess with someone just because they are different. A lesson three neanderthals are soon to be taught. (Art and Story by Metal Hand, creator of "Agenda" and "Laser")
"Survivor"- A ship is stranded in space. A man must make a choice to survive at all cost, even if it means doing the unimaginable. (Art and Story by Jack Gonzalez, creator of "Last Unicorn," and "Pins and Needles.")
"Fuckboy"- A sexist man thinks he’s about to score with the perfect girl at the bar, but gets more than he bargained for. (Art and Story by Brian Defferding, creator of "School: A Ghost Story.")
"Nightmares"- A girl struggles to cope with a nightmare that never seems to end, but is she really dreaming. (Story by Maria Gonzalez and Art by Jack Gonzalez.)
"The Paleta Man"- It's date night and a young couple go out to the drive-in. After watching the first horror movie trailer, their tasty treats from the concession stand aren't what they seem. (Story by Mike Morales and Art by Noel Morales, co-creator and artist of Midlife Monsters).
Cover art for each of the stories (postcards of the covers will be available as a reward option either as a mystery pick or a set of 5):
Risks and challenges
With anything there are risks. Our main risk would be if printing took longer than expected. We will do everything in our power to make sure everyone who has backed us gets their reward in a timely matter. However, we would like to note the obvious risks consisting of computer failure, robots enslaving humanity, alien invasion, and/or a zombie apocalypse.
In all honesty, we know that it is very important to get our product into the hands of those who have backed us, in a timely fashion. We will do everything in our power to do so. We have given ourselves ample time to make sure that we will be able to correct any issues that may arise. We do not foresee any delays in printing unless life changing emergency were to occur.
