About this project

              Here's what the people are saying about Sails of Blood

"Ozzy Longoria produced an impressive high-caliber comic, full of action and depth. Sails of Blood proves that Ozzy is still not messing around."  — Mike May, Artist for the Eisner Award winning anthology, Comic Book Tattoo and video game artist.

"Ozzy Longoria and Crisman Strunk are one of my favorite creative teams; the story is so action-packed, it drew me right in, which is difficult for *anything* involving zombies or vampires and this has BOTH!".   --Michael Marcus Publisher/Owner at Hamtramck Idea Men Comics

Sails of Blood is a non-stop thrill ride of comic genius. Ozzy is one of the hardest working guys in comics he'll grab you with his art, shock you with his horror, then tickle your funny bone with his dark humor. This is the ultimate combination of fan-boy genres. Pirates, nuns, and demons, oh my!---Brian Germain Executive Director Dark Elf Designs LLC

"The artwork is brilliant, great action sequences, I want a copy for sure, I love nuns." ---   Aru Singh, Owner/Creator of Rising Sun Comics.

"Ozzy Longoria's spectacular artwork weaves his tale of Nathaniel Demon and takes you through the dark and twisted pages of Sails of Blood - Five Stars!" ---Jake Mackessy ,Owner of Mercenary Art Studio.

"Ozzy Longoria is one of the best artists I have ever had the pleasure of being friends with!" ---Adam Little, The Trout 

 "wow...excelent Artwork!!" --Fernando Suarez comic book enthusiast

"Good stuff, looks very interesting and the artwork is great"--Joe Morales.

"Concept is great" --Will Childs ,project backer

"Awesome work"-- Joe Marchese, project backer

 "nice"-- Omar Sherif Sad , Comic Book enthusiast 

 "This looks bad ass!!! And a MUST HAVE!"--- Erik Dee Fullmer ,HORace ROveR High comic

"Fascinating work!"-- Vicki Newby

"A while back I gave Ozzy Longoria a script (about my character "Captain Miracle") and he gave me back a work of art.  I really hope to see if he can outdo himself on this book"--Jason A. Quest, Creator/Owner of Holy Comics

 "This is uncapped delivery of serious awesome, and we're all going to weigh anchor for departure on a sea of marvelous adventure."   — Mike May, Artist for the Eisner Award winning anthology, Comic Book Tattoo and video game artist

"Sails of Blood" is the prequel of another series of dark humor comic books we are working on about a character and comic book called “Nathaniel Demon” (http://longoria7.tripod.com/id12.html). I cannot tell you much about it without spoiling it, but in this story arc, he becomes a Pirate and this is one of his many adventures. It starts in the 1700s, when the Vampire/Pirate Jacob Nathaniel Van Ritter is sailing the Caribbean waters with his Mayan crew, looking for an unknown artifact that will cure him of his thirst for blood. He is also being unknowingly followed by a group of terrible adversaries who have sworn to destroy him. Expect horror, action and adventure!

We were planing to print it in a series of 3 comic books, but we've now decided to publish it as a Trade Paper Back Graphic Novel. We'll print as many copies as we can if we meet our goal, and if we get enough extra funding we will go for a hard cover format. We'll also be printing some limited edition t-shirts with original artwork of a vampire Jolly Roger (see video), plus many other outstanding rewards.

I'm currently working on the pencils and inks for the last pages of "Sails of Blood" and we have 2/3 of the colors finished. With your funding we intend to pay for coloring and lettering for the rest of the book. Any additional funds will go towards printing costs for the 100-page trade paperback, and we're planning to have the book ready roughly one month after funding is completed.

For those who aren't familiar with Kickstarter, know that your pledge is just that: a pledge, not an immediate payment. No money changes hands unless we meet our goal. If the project doesn't get enough funds by August 6 @ 11:48 PM MT, the project ends and you are not charged a dime.

Thanks for stopping by! We appreciate your contribution! Enjoy the preview

  • Kickstarter uses Amazon's Flexible Payments Service, which enables our all-or-nothing funding method. No other credit card processor currently supports our requirements. We're always talking with other companies and exploring other services, so expect more options in the future.

  • Perhaps you know the project creator, or you heard about the project from a trusted source.

    Maybe they have a first-person video. That would be hard to fake. "Is it really U2?!" Well, it is if Bono's talking about the project.

    Still not sure? Ask the project creator a question via the "send message" button next to the creator’s name at the top of the project page.

    At the end of the day, use your internet street smarts.
