LITTLE GIRL WILL CHALLENGE EVERY GHOST STORY YOU'VE EVER BEEN TOLD!
When a cursed stuffed penguin is given to an unknowing victim, the spirit of Abby May, a vengeful little dead girl, lashes out blindly at the living. However, as Abby’s bloodlust leads her back to those responsible for her death, she begins to piece together the truth about how she died and how she lived.
LITTLE GIRL is a ghost story from the ghost's point of view.
Hey Kickstarter community! PAT SHAND here. I'm back with my 11th Kickstarter, and this time, I'm teaming up with artist OLIVIA PELAEZ and publisher DEVIL'S DUE COMICS to bring you the graphic novel collection of our horror comic, LITTLE GIRL. We previously published it as a series of four single issues, and now we are here to raise the funds to print it as a paperback! It totals out to 88 pages of full-color comics, and it's ready to be printed!
We can only make this book happen here, with you!
This is also a personal tale for both me and Olivia. I've always been terrified of ghosts, since childhood -- and that fear was tripled when the ghost in question was a child. From The Ring to The Grudge to all manner of horror movies, I found myself so terrified by the idea of small, cold hands grasping at my throat... that I knew I had to explore that fear with a story.
Our story is as terrifying as any of the previously mentioned tales, but we've added an emotional core to the traditional haunting narrative to explore death, loss, life, religion, the power of love, and the irresistible lure of vengeance. We've created something both cathartic and horrifying to appeal to classic horror fans, as well as those looking for a fresh new twist on the genre.
Now... enough talking. Take a look at some more of Olivia's beautiful art.
This campaign also offers by far the most stunning original art I've ever been able to offer. I didn't even know this until recently because in my 8 years of working in comics with over 300 issues published... I have never seen an artist do this. Olivia traditionally drew AND colored the covers, and wants to offer them to you, our readers, through the Kickstarter!
The comic is completely DONE. It's written, drawn, colored by FRAN GAMBOA & JC RUIZ, and lettered by JIM CAMPBELL. We are ready to print it! Our delivery date is set in October just to protect ourselves if we have a printer or customs delay, but we fully expect to beat our delivery date by FAR.
This will also be shipping to comic shops by Devil's Due if we get funded, but all of the other rewards here are exclusive to THIS campaign.
Keep reading to check out our other amazing rewards, including:

Risks and challenges
Between this and the projects I've funded over at my personal page as well as our collaborative Space Between company page, this is my 11th Kickstarter campaign. We have a well-oiled system and are happy to announce that the book is 100% COMPLETE! All we have to do is print it.
Because we're done, the only possible challenges would be delays in printing, considering we ship from overseas. However, any time that has happened in the past has been minor -- I have successfully Kickstarted multiple projects before as creator AND as a team like this, which has given me the utmost confidence that we'll meet and exceed your expectations. When hiccups are hit, we send updates. When we receive our shipment, we get them our to backers immediately without delay. I mean, why would we want to hold onto the books when we're so eager for YOU to read them?
One thing that we can't control is customs charges. We pay more for international shipping than we charge (and I wish we could charge less!) but some countries will charge an extra customs fee based on the prices of the items included. Our advice there would just be to be aware of that! We haven't had problems in the past, but I thought it'd be worth mentioning!
Our backers deserve the absolute best, and we promise to deliver the highest quality, the best communication, and all questions answered within 24 hours or less -- ALWAYS!
