House Bound is a one-shot horror comic, written by Simon Birks, art by Rory Donald (Griff Gristle, Hexes: 101), and letters by Lyndon White.

The story revolves around a young girl who isn't allowed to play outside, her mother who's very careful who her daughter speaks to, and the person across the road who is always watching them.

The comic is complete, apart from adding the names of the backers to the back page. It is 24 pages of full colour story, and 4 pages of cover.

Oh, all right.

House Bound is set in a small close, with twitching curtains, and secrets a-plenty.

There's also a fair bit of blood!

Polly plays with her dollhouse. Sarah, her mother, doesn't let her play outside, so it's one of the only ways she gets to use her imagination.

Across the road, someone is watching. They've made notes on what happens, and they're waiting for just the right moment to strike.

And that moment is tonight.

Absolutely! You get to read the whole story, knowing that however it ends, you won't have to wait any longer!

House Bound was originally a short film script I wrote a few years ago, which I turned into a comic. This is what happened to Sinners and Hexes, so it's in good stead.

You get 28 pages of full colour, horror suspense, for mature readers!

It'll be printed in US size, and will come bagged to keep the comic intact.

Also, with this being a Make 100 campaign, we have a reward tier restricted to only 100 backers!

Back at the £25 tier, and you'll get our SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION House Bound Enamel Pin! Don't miss out!

Nope, you're going to love it!

House Bound is one of my bloodiest, most suspenseful comics to date!

It's drawn by Rory Donald, who drew the Hexes: 101 story, and lettered by the excellent Lyndon White.

It's a real twisty-turny, dark and mysterious, page-turner, and it'll be all yours!

In fact, we're so confident you're going to love it, you can get the first 8 pages by clicking the link below!

As well as some personal projects & recently signing up to Comichaus with a story by Jon Laight he has got a very busy year ahead.

This House Bound campaign runs January to February 2019. We'll send out surveys in late March, print the book and create the merchandise in April/May, before sending the books out to the backers in June.

Below you'll find a simple chart showing the campaign funds broken down by area. We allow for unseen costs in our estimates.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our campaign. If you've got this far, then we hope you've found it interesting.

I loved creating House Bounds, and I hope it both intrigues and surprises you!

Risks and challenges

Since 2015, Blue Fox Comics have directly run sixteen successful comic-book Kickstarters, and have helped three other projects get funded.

We have a very good understanding of exactly what it takes, not only to run a Kickstarter campaign, but to successfully deliver on the rewards.

House Bound is complete, with the only outstanding tasks being to add backers names to the back of the issue.

As soon as that is complete, we can send the book to the printers.

Should any issues arise, we will let you know immediately, along with any action we need to take.

Feel free to look at our previous Kickstarter campaigns for evidence of our ability to successfully communicate with our backers post-campaign.

Thank you.
