America’s favorite pastime is getting a make over. Writer Mark Andrew Smith and artist James Stokoe have teamed up for a kickstarter campaign for an original graphic novel that brings together baseball and horror. The series follows a washed up team of minor leaguers who find themselves in the midst of monster mayhem after being invited to a cursed baseball town. The book promises to be loaded with gore, comedy, blood splatter, and thrills. In what looks to be a cross between The Warriors and The Thing, Sullivan’s Sluggers is already funded at %982 with 11 days to go, so don’t miss your chance to get a copy for as little as $10. It’s often the ridiculous concepts such as this that are the most fun.
From the Kickstarter page:
Long past their former glory, the minor league Sluggers get an invitation to play a baseball game in a cursed small town. After the 7th inning stretch, the sun goes down, and the dysfunctional teammates find themselves fighting for their lives against a town of flesh-eating monsters!
Now, it’s up to coach Casey Sullivan to help his team escape from being the next dish in the town’s terrifying feeding frenzy!
Eisner & Harvey Award-winning graphic novel author Mark Andrew Smith joins forces with Eisner nominated illustrator James Stokoe for a gripping roller coaster of a graphic novel, packed with shocks, gore, and screamingly outrageous humor, when America’s Favorite Past Time becomes one team’s ultimate nightmare!
For the past 9 years I’ve been working as a writer on many Image Comic Book series such as Gladstone’s School for World Conquerors, the New Brighton Archeological Society, and the Amazing Joy Buzzards.
It’s no secret that I love creating comic books.
I was lucky to meet James early in his career and since then James has gone on to become a fan favorite among readers and creators.
In my opinion James Stokoe is the Jimmy Hendrix of comics. His work speaks volumes, already placing him in the pantheon of the Gods of comic book creators. I cannot speak highly enough about James or stop gushing over his work.
