About

Musicians by day and fake ghost hunters by night. When TWIZTID gets called to a real haunted house, they soon realize that it’s their responsibility to stop the wicked energy known as “The Darkness” from spreading across the land – whether they’re up to it or not!

“A perfect blend of horror and comedy.” – Drunken Pen Writing

“Fun, very creepy and atmospheric… and also hilarious.” – SciFi and Scary

“One of the year’s must-have comics… the best comic you aren’t reading and that needs to change!” – Reading with a Flight Ring

“If you’re one of the folks that wishes James Gunn would have gotten a chance to make the SCOOBY DOO live action movies with his less than PG sensibilities, this book is definitely worth the look.” – Ghosts of the Stratosphere

“Twiztid seems tailor-made for the comic medium.” – HorrorDNA

This campaign offers readers a *Kickstarter Exclusive* Hardcover Edition of TWIZTID HAUNTED HIGH-ONS Volume 1: “The Darkness Rises” as well as several other Kickstarter Exclusive items and potential upgrades!

Blending comedy and horror in a story described as “SCOOBY DOO meets PINEAPPLE EXPRESS,” the Source Point Press comic series features Twiztid as a pair of unlikely saviors against an evil supernatural force intent on taking over the world. Written by Dirk Manning (HOPE, NIGHTMARE WORLD, TALES OF MR. RHEE) with Twiztid and fully illustrated by Marianna Pescosta and Alessandro de Fornasari (GRIMM TALES OF TERROR, NIGHTMARE WORLD, TALES OF MR. RHEE), this graphic novel collects all five sold-out issues of “The Darkness Rises” into one gorgeous Kickstarter Exclusive hardcover collected edition, complete with the option to include a number of Stretch Goal extras and bonuses.

Who is Twiztid?

Formed in 1997, Twizid has released twelve full length albums to date which have sold over 1 million copies worldwide. A hip-hop band with a strong crossover following, their latest album “Generation Nightmare” has sold over 20,000 physical copies to date and had over 2 million streams on Spotify alone while also simultaneously charting in five different categories on Billboard, including the Rap, Alternative, and Independent Artist categories. Having recently finished a series of performances on the final Warped Tour, the band is now currently on the road with Motionless in White.

That being said, Twiztid are also fans of both horror and comics. Since joining forces with publisher SOURCE POINT PRESS to create and publish the HAUNTED HIGH-ONS series, both the introductory One-Shot in 2017 and then the five-issue follow-up mini-series “The Darkness Rises” have all completely sold-out of their entire print-run as fans of the band and comedy/horror comics alike have come to discover the quality of the series.

Why Kickstarter?

It’s a fair question, right? With all their accolades and fame, why turn to Kickstater for the release of a collected edition of HAUNTED HIGH-ONS: “The Darkness Rises,” right?

The answer is simple: You. Through Kickstarter, Twiztid and Source Point Press can offer you a deluxe, Kickstarter Exclusive hardcover edition of this collection that will not be available in comic stores – or anywhere else.

Additionally, using Kickstarter allows us to offer those who pledge more and more Stretch Goal bonuses and upgrades, as well as Pledge Levels that are impossible to offer through comic shops and book stores.

Yes, there will be a standard trade paperback softcover release of this collection in comic shops in early 2020… but if you want to treat yourself to a deluxe Kickstarter Exclusive hardcover edition of the book, help unlock even more content, and perhaps even treat yourself to some even higher Pledge Level rewards, this gives us the opportunity to offer you just that!

REWARDS!!

 UNLOCK ALL THE HIDDENABLES! 

(Some people call 'em STRETCH GOALS and that's cool too...)

Every Kickstarter Exclusive Hardcover will now rock a KS Exclusive Cover!

Risks and challenges

There are virtually no inherent risks in this campaign. All five issues of content that will be collected in this book are already completed and press-ready, and any additional content unlocked will immediately be completed by the creative team as they are unlocked, allowing for a quick turn-around time to get the final files to the printer.
That being said, unexpected and unavoidable circumstances are always possible, such as printing and manufacturing delays, products getting lost in the shipping process, or human error resulting in something not being sent.
To that end, Source Point Press, Dirk Manning, and Twiztid all have a strong track record of customer service and transparency in product delivery and customer satisfaction that will result in making sure every backer and their orders are taken care of and treated with the utmost
professional and personal courtesy. Supporting a Kickstarter project is a pact between you and us, and it’s one we will honor from pledge to delivery.
