Hexes:Waking Nightmare is a 28 page, supernatural horror genre, comic. Written by Simon Birks, and drawn and lettered by the incredibly talented Lyndon White.
Twitter: @LyndonDraws
Web: http://lyndonwhite.com/

It tells the story of Ben, a man whose nightmares don't stop the moment he wakes up.

Having been a victim of monsters that crawled out of his dreams, Ben's life has been taken up with tracking them down and destroying them.

He's nearly finished. Unfortunately, the last one is the original nightmare child, and she's stronger than the others put together.

Hexes:Waking Nightmare, is part of the larger Hexes universe, a place where strange things happen to everyday people.

The Reward

For the Kickstarter Make 100 promotion, we wanted to do something really special. This black and white version was produced as one of the Hexes Kickstarter stretch goals, but only ever sent out as a PDF.

For this campaign, we're going to make the comic, just 100 of them, and offer you the chance to own this very limited edition.

We won't be printing this again, ever!

Not only that, but they will be signed by the author, and individually numbered;

All this for just £15!

Funds

The funds raised from this Kickstarter will pay for these special variant comics to be printed, pay the normal Kickstarter fees, postage, and any profit leftover will be used to print further copies of our comics to be sold at comic-cons around the UK.

Thanks

I'd like to say a very sincere thanks to the Kickstarter community for making this all possible. We had a fantastic 2016 printing some great comics. Without you, the independent comics sector wouldn't be such a fantastic place to shop and pick up great books.

Thank you.

Risks and challenges

Hexes:Waking Nightmare Black and White variant issue is complete, and this Kickstarter is to raise funds for printing, so, in a way, you are pre-ordering the comic.

Having already printed six independent comics, I have the printers and merchandise suppliers in hand, and know they can deliver the quality you'll want.

So, risks are truly minimal! Of course, if any setbacks occur, we'll let you know immediately, and make alternative plans quickly and efficiently.
