Many of you know Amy Reeder as the talented artist who was recently “separated” from “Batwoman”, after a creative difference with writer J.H. Williams III. But, that’s water under the bridge as she moves on to a creator owned project on Kickstarter alongside Brandon Montclare. Halloween Eve is a one-shot 40-page comic about Eve, a young adult who works in a costume shop, filled with clowns, dolls, ghosts, and demons that come to life late one night. The project is already over 100% funded with 18 days to go, and you can snatch yourself a copy for only $10.
From the Kickstarter page:
The Comic: Eve has an imagination that’s more than active—it can be downright dangerous! Working late at the costume super-store Halloween Land, she gets lost in her own thoughts until something goes bump in the night… The rubber masks and plastic novelties are coming to life, and Eve must face ghosts, goblins, and gorilla suits made real!
HALLOWEEN EVE is a 40-page (32 story pages plus other content) full-color comic, due out in October 2012 to celebrate Halloween. It’s a stand-alone, self-contained tale of magic and adventure. It’s geared toward teen and adult audiences.
The Creators: Artist Amy Reeder (Batwoman, Madame Xanadu) teams with writer Brandon Montclare (Fear Itself: Fearsome Four). Although we loved our various projects at Marvel and DC, we both feel its time to do something creator-owned. We’d like your support, and that’s where Kickstarter comes in…
The Kickstarter: All money raised will go toward production costs to make HALLOWEEN EVE and to give supporters some cool rewards. Later in the summer we’ll be announcing a publisher that will help us package and distribute our comic. But since this book is 100% creator-owned, there’s no publisher’s financing. Our Kickstarter goal is enough to bridge the gap and get a copy of the book in the hands of readers in 4 months! So if you enjoyed our past work, support creator-owned comics, and want to see HALLOWEEN EVE become a reality, we have some great rewards for you. And remember: you’re only charged if we make our funding goal.
