Rachel Deering, an Ohio-based comic creator is looking for funding to complete her Lesbian Werewolf horror story Anathema. Anathema is a six issue limited series horror comic that tells the story of Mercy Barlowe, a tormented young woman with a dark side. She must fight through treacherous lands and unspeakable horrors to reclaim her lover’s soul, which has been stolen by members of a sinister cult, bent on resurrecting a terrible and ancient evil. The first Anathema Kickstarter project was an overwhelming success with the funding raised paying the artist and print costs of the first issue.
Now that Anathema has found a publishing home with ComixTribe, I hope to raise the funds necessary to complete the remaining 5 issues in the series! I’m asking for $20,000 to cover the cost of paying my amazing artist and colorist. All money goes to them, less Amazon and Kickstarter fees, and I don’t keep a dime for myself…UNLESS!!
Anything I raise above and beyond the goal amount will go toward getting me out to conventions this year. This will help me to be able to promote and sell Anathema to a wider audience. I love interacting with comic fans, signing merchandise, and being able to network with other comic professionals! The convention experience is a MUST for all creators in the comics industry if they hope to establish themselves.
Deering was also an editor on Womanthology, a highly successful Kickstarter funded comic which featured the work of over 140 comic lovin’ ladies. So dig deep in to your cowl’s pockets and give a little (or a lot) to this worthy comic cause. There are plenty of rewards for those who pledge, including full copies of the completed series, special artwork, or your own likeness drawn as one of the comic characters. Visit the Anathema Kickstarter Campaign now, there’s only 2 weeks left for Rachel to reach her target!
