Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
In case you haven’t heard already, Mark Andrew Smith and James Stokoe’s upcoming baseball horror graphic novel, Sullivan’s Sluggers, has become a sensation on Kickstarter, raising nearly $80,000 on an original goal of $6,000.
Why not help them get to $80,000 and also get yourself a beautiful-looking 200-page color hardcover?
Here’s the description of the book:
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!
Here‘s the Kickstarter page.
I’ve pledged my $30, I recommend that you pledge, too, for this exclusive offer ($10 gets you a PDF of the book, which is cool in and of itself).
