HELP KEEP HORROR-COMEDY ALIVE - SUPPORT LEA HERNANDEZ' "THE GARLICKS!"
Hey Scared Silly fans - I have an extra-special request of you: if you love horror-comedies (and you wouldn't be here if you didn't), please consider supporting writer-cartoonist Lea Hernandez' Kickstarter fundraiser to help get her wonderful web-comic series, "The Garlicks" published as a graphic novel.
Hernandez is a veteran who has written, edited, lettered, and colored comics for the likes of Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Oni, Disney & Image. She's also previously published five graphic novels, re-written and lettered several manga products and won a few awards. You can read more about Lea when you click here and here.
Now Lea brings the world The Garlicks, a fun and funny series for young adults and up that provides a new twist to vampire lore, presenting adolescent and teenage vampires in a whimsically inventive fashion.
Here is the description of the series from Lea's official site:
"The Garlicks is told from the point of view of Pandora, a vampire with zero vampire abilities and the big sister of baby Pamila (who’s usually called Ham), who seems to have gotten everything Pandora didn’t, like being able to shapeshift into an adorable flying fish and eat meat.
Pandora turns to her passion, making comics, and chooses her family as her muses: the exhausting Ham, her father Vourdain, (a flower-eating barista), her mother Olive (who is butcher), and their house/business, Orange Espresso and Meats."
Rounding out the cast are Maxim, a boy who can see monsters, and "three rock-stupid but very dangerous demon hunters."
So how can you help? Easy, just donate to the Kickstarter fundraiser - you can find out how by clicking here.
You can can donate any amount you'd like (although I'd recommend the $25 level - that gets you an autographed copy of the printed graphic novel plus your name published in the book's acknowledgments, among other nifty goodies.
Now enjoy this video that will tell you a little more about the project:
