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.
