Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Chase the Moon

 

Chase the Moon is the bastard child of West Side Story’s romance, the often violent and stylized world of The Warriors, and the horror sensibilities of The Monster Squad. It’s a perfect fit for readers looking for 1980’s nostalgia tinged with both the macabre and beautiful.

This sounds absolutely smashing and something that the comic universe needs. I mean…West Side Story, The Warriors, and The Monster Squad all rolled into one? Get your mouse buttons ready and go pledge to make this one happen!

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Touching Evil Vol. 2

Kickstarter Spotlight - Geek-O-Rama - Touching Evil Comic

For those new to this award-winning supernatural thriller, the premise is simple: there is a curse that grants its bearers immortality and the power to kill people with a mere touch of the hand…if the person is evil. Sounds great, except for one little catch: the souls you kill live on in a prison inside your head. As if that wasn’t bad enough, what if the person you kill happens to be someone you care about? And what defines evil anyway?

In volume one we followed Ada Mansfield: a single mom and hard working attorney who stumbled upon the curse and had her whole life turned upside down as she learned who her friends and enemies were…the hard way.  Now in volume two she discovers there may be someone who can break the curse once and for all, but it comes at a price...
