All hell breaks loose, literally, when a young skateboarder named Grom is murdered and rises from the grave for revenge in the form of a demonic skateboarding spirit.


 Grom returns to his life, but each night since his resurrection, The Wraith hijacks Grom’s body to take revenge on his killers, murdering them each in unique and bloody ways.


Art by Christian DiBari, Colors By Simon Gough, Letters by Taylor Esposito and written by Tristan Gallagher. 


 But when his killers figure out who has been picking them off, will he be able to make peace with the demon long enough to protect his friends and family?



Risks and challenges

The big obstacle for a graphic novel project is usually time. Luckily we have Christian, who has plenty of major publisher books under his belt. Including Magdalena, Cutter, House of Waxwork and Hoax Hunters. The book is complete, and we just need to pay for a colorist and letterer. All the rewards are done!

With this pledge, you get 35 of the main cover and 5 of the ultra-rare Scarecrowoven Variant. Retail on the regular copies won't be written on the book, but you can assume approximately $4.99. We may ask that you prove that you are a retailer...
