About

The Story

Escape From Jesus Island is a creator-owned and published comic book series about an attempt to clone Jesus that goes a little off the rails. ReGen Corp. eventually succeeds in its quest, but only after creating scores of horrific near-Jesus freaks and a monstrous twin brother, Yeshua (aka Damien).

The dying pope hears of Christ's return and sends an elite Vatican Black Ops team to the remote Malsum Island Research Facility to steal the one man who can heal him, just as Yeshua is about to launch a mutant insurrection. Horror and hilarity ensue.

Created by illustrator Mortimer Glum, writer/filmmaker Shawn French and editor/letterer Shawn M. Greenleaf, Escape From Jesus Island is a twisted retelling of the prophecies from the Book of Revelation. It's a story loaded with monsters, mythology and carnage, as science and religion slam into each other at full speed.

Want to see the actual post (just in case you think we are making it up), then just click HERE! We won't take it personally, we were just as shocked as you are now.

It's not every day you get an "atta' boy" from a personal hero. So, we must be doing something right. Right? Don't answer that.

Why A Trade, Indeed?

There are a few big reasons for doing a trade paperback:

1) It will be awesome. (No seriously, it will be!)

2) It gives us a chance to correct all the little things we screwed up along the way. Each of us has a small list of things that in retrospect, we wish we had done differently. A line that reads flat, a panel sequence that doesn't flow as intended, a hand that looks a little wonky. We're taking this opportunity to do another cover-to-cover cleanup to make this special edition release the best book we can possibly make. Changes range from minor coloration tweaks to a couple pages that Morty is redrawing entirely because he wasn't happy with them.

3) (And this is the biggie!) We can submit the trade to the Diamond Distribution catalog, which would allow every store to order us where they get the rest of their comics. This would be HUGE for us, as most chains won't even consider picking up a comic that isn't in Diamond. Getting EFJI into Diamond is the key to unleashing our comic onto an unsuspecting public!

4) We'll be able to fill it with a whole bunch of bonus goodies. We've got so much extra content, it would be sad if it never saw the light of day.

But, we need your help to make that happen. 

So, What IS Different?

We just mentioned the improvements we've made to our older issues. Now, we are going to give you a sneak peek at a few of those changes.

First up...

Michelle Death Scene
As you can see, the old scene ended up a bit cluttered, particularly in print, and lacked the punch (through her chest) we were looking for.

Morty simplified the action, creating a more visually striking image while delivering a cleaner, more immersive storytelling experience.

Next example...

Wall of Silence Fix & Layout Adjustments
One of the things Morty really wanted to do was feature the Wall of Silence properly. This old page was a bit hectic and chaotic with a ton of eye-pathing problems.

So, he decided to stretch out the scene, slow the pacing a bit. This let the creepiness seep in throughout the read. That also meant creating a whole new page (something you'll see in the TPB), but the end result is worth the extra effort.

The change in panel layout also meant a vast improvement in the lettering's ability to lead the eye through the page and to all the pertinent visual info.

The last example...

The Pope's Introduction & Letter
There were all kinds of upgrades to this page. The most obvious change is in the delivery of the letter's content. We'd originally planned on having the text as it is in the revised version, but there were serious concerns that it wouldn't print properly and the whole idea would be ruined.

Since that time we learned that our printer (Transcontinental) does some top-notch printing. So, we are finally able to deliver this page the way we always intended.

Also, you'll notice that Morty was able to not only to lighten the page, delivering a clearer more dynamic look, he also adjusted the interior lighting and Pope's complexion.

Now, instead of looking like an old sun-damaged cowboy, the Pope has a pallid and a rather sickly look, which sets up the next chapter of the story perfectly.

Just The Tip
Well, those are just a few of the many changes we've made to the series. Every change has been done for a single reason...to make the story more immersive and a better overall experience for you, the reader.

Now that's we've discussed some of the changes, let's move on to how you can go from fan to being IN the story!  

From Fan to Character

Our philosophy from the start is that any character that can be modeled after a fan, should be. 47 of our fans and previous Kickstarter backers have already appeared as characters in Escape From Jesus Island. That's not a typo. 47!

We could post a host of images here, to show you just how awesome being a character in our comic series is, but instead, we are going to let the video do the talking on this one.

Here's a look at some of them in action:

We have a bunch more roles in Episodes 5-8 that are up for grabs this time around.

These roles range from a few super affordable background cameos to major roles as one of the Antichrist's most valued Mutant Apostles (a reward that comes with a metal gaming miniature of your character!).

Speaking of these opportunities to become a part of our story world, we move on to...

Reward Highlights & Explanations

Some of our rewards are fairly self-explanatory. Pledges like Singles Collector or Digital Trade and others are exactly what they sound like, chances to grab physical or digital copies of the TPB or single issues. Some rewards, however, really need to be seen to be appreciated. 

Moreover, many of our rewards go deeper into the story, as evidenced by the 47 fans who have already been written and drawn into our story and world.

The Basics - The Trade Paperback
This 140-160 page beast (page total is dependent upon how many unlocks and LEVEL UP's we get) can be yours in digital or physical format.


The Basics - Single Issue Comics

Here is EVERY comic (regular or variant) we've released to the public so far. The only one missing is the original Kickstarter Exclusive from our first campaign. Sorry folks, an exclusive is just that.

The Basics - Digital Copies (Single Issue or TPB)
Just want the comic itself? Not a problem. You can score physical copies, or save yourself a bit of shipping with pdf versions.


The Basics - EFJI T-Shirt
One of our most popular convention items are our kickass Escape From Jesus Island t-shirts featuring the Antichrist's Battle Standard. Now you can score yours without having to battle crowds and pervasive geek funk at a con. 

The Basics: EFJI Vatican Black Ops Hoodie
Represent the Vatican Black Ops in style with our brand-new VBO apparel! The final design will look slightly different than this mockup, but this gives you the idea of where we're heading with it.

The Basics: Practical SFX Fingers, Noses, and Ears (yeah, seriously!)
Our "What's In The Box?!" rewards each come with at least one film-quality severed body part prop from The Shoggoth Assembly... along with a kickass assortment of Jesus Island loot.

With the basics covered, let's move on to some of the good stuff, shall we? We shall.

And that' s just the beginning...

 But wait, there's more...

 Here come the biggies...

 Want to join the Horde as a true fanatic?

And that is only about 1/2 of the rewards we are offering! We'll be highlighting other rewards as the campaign moves forward.

Ok, I saved this one for last. Because it's either our very best or absolute worst idea ever...

Each of these books will be a unique creation, made from stitching random bits of silicone flesh and body parts to create a truly horrific bible.

Well, that about wraps up our Rewards section, time to talk...

Add-Ons

If you would like multiple rewards or extra books, add the price of the additional loot to your pledge. At the end of the campaign, we'll send out a survey where you can tell us what additional items you ordered.

Stretch Goals

Once we do, we'll begin revealing some great Stretch Goals. But, for now, they are secrets...just waiting the be unlocked.

But, Stretch Goals are not the only thing that get's you free stuff. We also have...

The Big Bad Preview

Here's a little peek at each of our first four issues. In Episode 1: A STAB IN THE DARK, a group of animal-rights activists breaks into ReGen Corp's Malsum Island Research Facility and stumbles across the horrors hidden within.

 

 

 

In Episode 2: INVASIVE SPECIES, we learn a bit more about the series of terrible decisions that got us into this mess.

 

 

 

In Episode 3: SECOND SON, the Vatican Black Ops land on Malsum Island, intent on stealing the reborn Son of God. They are instead greeted by his twin brother, Yeshua, and the mutant horde.

 

 

 

In Episode 4: WHAT LIES BENEATH, the Vatican Black Ops learn a bit more than they would have liked about what's happening in the tunnels under Malsum Island.

 

 

 

...and that's just a taste of what awaits you within the TPB

The Budget

We've already created the four issues that make up our first trade paperback, so we just need to raise the money to print it.

The $10,000 goal is what we need to print these books and ship rewards. We'll then be taking a few bucks off the top of each future sale to go directly to the crew of misfits who created this series.

 

The Creative Team

Shawn French
Writer, Creator, & Friendly Psychopath
Shawn French is a writer and filmmaker whose work ranges from comics to video games (Epic Tavern) to feature films (The Wrong House). When not writing horror stories, he often appears as monsters in a wide range of bad independent films you've never heard of.

Mortimer Glum
Artist, Co-Creator, & Unfriendly Psychopath

Mortimer Glum entered this world kicking and screaming and he hasn’t stopped since. Much of his childhood was spent in corrective institutions and mental wellness facilities, where Morty learned to escape the horrors of his life by drawing things that were even worse. After escaping captivity, he procured a fake ID and went on to serve two tours in Vietnam (one for each side).

Mortimer moved to Maine in the ’90s to avoid warrants in Alabama, New Jersey, Alaska, Wisconsin and Ho Chi Minh City. He currently lives in the basement of an abandoned asbestos factory in an undisclosed location near the Canadian border. He is assisted by his lovely man-servant Bobo and is raising a pet pig that he hopes to harvest for organs once his own finally shut down due to decades of alcoholism, drug abuse, and self-flagellation. In addition to his work creating scores of mutant Jesus clones, Morty illustrated the excellent comic Cthulhu Williams by writer Tim Stiles.

Shawn M. Greenleaf
Editor, Letterer (Issue #4), & Angry Old Man
Shawn is the Editor, Letterer(as of issue #4), and Production Manager for EFJI. He is also the Editor, Letterer, and Production Manager for Oathbound (written by Kevin Cuffe, & art by Paul Gori), Astropunk (written by Ken Centers, Rob Farinholt & art by Paul Gori), he's also the Editor and Letterer of the grindhouse miniseries The Infernal Pact & Whore of Babylon (by Joseph Shmalke). He has also contributed to the Cthulhu Williams: Monster Hunter series (written by Tim Stiles) in various ways.
He currently resides in Seattle, WA. with his incredibly supportive wife and a high-maintenance diva of a cat, named Lucy (whom he dotes on endlessly.)

Parkker's Web (The artist formerly known as Peeter Parkker)
Letterer (issues #1-3), Hype Man, & Web Slinger
Peeter Parkker’s life changed when he was bit by a radioactive turntable, giving him superhuman artistic abilities and some serious ADHD. What resulted were careers in graphic design, dance instruction, and DJing. Creative work includes a staff member/teacher position for USM, Bates and Bowdoin colleges, as well as Portland Public Schools, performing in the band Miravie, character design for several tabletop games, a 20-year DJ career, and a failed attempt to teach Mortimer Glum the running man.

Risks and challenges

The four issues that will compose our trade paperback are already completed and the special features are well underway. We've also starting producing rewards well in advance of the campaign. Our first four metal gaming miniatures are complete and ready to ship, for example.

It would take a perfectly-timed natural disaster or rampaging horde of mutants to stop us at this point.
