THE STORY  

My name is Gerardo Preciado, a writer from northern México and along my lifelong friend and incredible artist Daniel Bayliss we started a blog five years ago called MOONHEAD PRESS, a place to publish our short stories and gain some experience doing what we love, comics.  

To our surprise (we were just a couple of idiots without a plan, now we sort of have a plan, but we are still idiots) a couple of our web comics went viral, mainly our take on the caped crusader called THE DEAL, which got us reviews and interviews from all over the web including WIRED, i09 and Kotaku, the comic was translated by fellow fans accross the world into french, german, portuguese, spanish, italian and more, we couldn't have been more thrilled, or shocked!

Then there was also GOD'S END, the final tale of the ultimate superhero archetype, we purposely avoided showing any logos or mentioning his home planet or his friends names knowing that someday we would like to publish these stories, which is what we are doing with THE DEAL: REDUX, we're scratching the logo (literally) or any reference to the actual character and changing the colors, this way we can include it on the collection, which fans have asked us to do for years now.

But there are many more stories that we want to publish in this book that we are very proud of, the hopeful sadness of THE RAT, the dark irony of EL CID, the bonkers violence of WOLF WOLF; and then there is the latest, probably our best work and certainly the most timely, THE MIRROR, a politically charged alien invasion story.

THE MIRROR, our latest web comic, will be included on the Graphic Novel along THE WRITER, a story available exclusively thru this campaign.

WOLF WOLF, an over the top violent story of a werewolf that turns into a bigger werwolf, is also included in the Graphic Novel MOONHEAD PRESS, VOL. 1.

WHO WE ARE  

Since we published that first story, Daniel has gone on to illustrate several series for Boom! Studios, including BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA VS ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, POWER RANGERS and he is currently dazzling audiences in LABYRINTH.  

Myself, I got the opportunity to write a horror one shot for Zenescope in GRIMM TALES OF TERROR # 9 (a tribute to early 80s slasher films), and co-created Old Skull Comics, where I write the spiritual action thriller PSYCARIO, and MASTER OF THE LORDS, a not suitable for kids adaptation of an unexisting 80's cartoon and toyline.

Some of the comics we've done over the years. From left to right Big Trouble vs Escape From New York and Labyrinth (illustrated by Daniel), Grimm Tales of Terror # 9 and Psycario (written by yours truly).

WHY WE NEED YOU  

It has been a dream of us since the beginning to collect these stories into an actual printed book, this november marks the 5th anniversary of the first story we published on the blog, and since we are planning on collaborating on more comics in the future, we thought this was the perfect time to celebrate the first five years of making comics together with MOONHEAD PRESS, VOL. 1, featuring over 100 pages of stories in FULL COLOR, including a new short tale that will be exclusive to this campaign called THE WRITER, I can't wait for you guys to read it!    

THE DEAL: REDUX As you can see from the image above, we've changed the colors and removed any references to the beloved superhero. Now, the story is about a couple of random dudes talking about life and stuff.

We do not intend to make money off this campaign (or in this lifetime, as our wives would say), the money raised thru this campaign will go straight into the printing of the book and manufacture of the rewards; right now the plan is to print this baby into a soft cover, but if we get lucky and raise enough money, the dream would be to make it into a hard cover book. So if you can't support the campaign economically (and even if you did) please help us by spreading the word!

WHAT YOU GET  

As I mentioned before, the goal is to print this collection of stories into a full color Soft Cover book, but that is not the only thing you can get, aside from the obvious digital file you can also get your name on a special Thank You section of the book, T-shirts, Pins, Stickers, Prints, and even sketches from the mighty Daniel!  

You can get your hands on T-shirt or a beautiful Soft Cover book, or if we get lucky, on a Hard Cover edition (pictured above). *Design not final.

FINALLY  

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, we hope that even if you are unable to support the campaign right now, you can share it with your comic book loving friends!
