The Book of Sons follows the pious and infernal exploits of an ensemble of theological and fictional characters, re-imagined in a celestial backdrop that leads from the gates of Paradise and Perdition alike. The transcendentally gifted yet completely sophomoric Enoch is catapulted into a world he is not only integral to, but justly dismayed to find is in shambles. The Creator is never present, His Only Begotten Son absconded, His Champion is absent without leave and Lucifer, the only suspect hasn't been seen since the fall...
We want to publish our comic!
After such a long time spent writing and perfecting it, we took Book of Sons to art. It's coming out amazing! However, we need funds to keep our books heart beating. We seek the financial solvency to be able to market properly and ensure no corners are cut when it comes to art, design and lettering.
What is Book of Sons?
Ever pondered who created God? Not I; we figured it out. There are so many factions rising against him, it's maddening. Angels are real, as are demons, and who ever sides with the Four Pillars may be the only ones who stand an honest chance. Jesus is missing..... So is Satan..... Michael refuses to respond to summons in any quantifiable..... questions need answering.
Why do we need the money?
Everyone in the project has scaled down from their full time job. We are working part time now, it was the only way to put more time into our book. We don't need the money to sustain ourselves, but rather require it for the art, marketing and production costs. With your contributions we will be able to release Book of Sons out into the world, submit it and hit local conventions.
What art style can we expect?
There are so many amazing artists, each with their own unique styles. I really want each page designed in a way that's worthy of being hung up on a wall. When we met Jay (we call him DammitJay), he was able to showcase a style of coloring that we loved. I knew I would know it when I saw it; Jay showed it to me. Please expect amazing art coupled with an incomparable anatomical style.
Where did this idea come from?
Ed (Wolfwoodphreak) and I have been writing it for a while. It was an idea I generated in my head. Ed helped me bring it into its form and give it dialogue. I just thought it would be great to play with a piece of mythology and mix it with theological ideas.
About the only risk or challenge we might face will be print time. That and the NSA's spying.
We are able to meet our deadlines without a problem & I have faith in our print shops abilities to keep its deadlines. If for any reason we experience any hiccups we will update everyone here via Kickstarter and our social networking accounts. If there's ever going to be a delay in getting our backers their stuff, we will let you all know promptly. Our progress will also be recorded in our social networking accounts, our blog found on spicytoilet.com and here.
Not only are you getting a printed version of issue 1, you're getting the Kickstarter variant cover. Plus the Lucifer character rendering. The rendering will be carefully removed from Jay's sketchbook, autographed and carefully packaged. The rendering can be viewed on the home page.
Not only will you be receiving a printed variant cover issue 1, it will come with a certificate of authenticity. Why? Because the whole SpicyToilet crew will be signing it! I will also email a PDF with issue 2 and some scanned pre final sketches.
NOTE: You will receive the email containing issue 2 in August.
