Well, here it is, the start of the Avenger of Blood Genesis Graphic Novel Blog. I am excited to be placing our campaign up on kickstarter.com in 2 and a half weeks! I am starting a kickstarter campaign for the purpose of finishing the artwork of the graphic novel and printing 1000 perfect bound softcover, semigloss copies.
It has been a long journey through outlines and edits, meeting the brilliant artist Jorge Molina, and, hopefully, coming back to the project in full force with no stops.
I was stoked to find out that Nick Cave of the Bad Seeds, one of my favorite singer songwriters, and his publishing company Mute Song Ltd. are going to let us use one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite songs in the Act I Title Page of the book! I thought the movie he penned, Lawless, was amazing and you should all go and watch it. Any film he has participated in as a composer (Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The Road) or screenwriter (Ghost… Of the Civil Dead, The Proposition) is brilliant.
I was also glad to find the perfect charity to donate a percentage of the profits of the graphic novels to http://www.401kids.org . This charity was created to prevent the cycle of abuse that can be passed down from adult to children by temporarily housing kids en route to a better home.
It holds a deep connection with me judging by the subject matter of this graphic novel. The true crime story (The Indiana torture slaying of Sylvia Marie Likens) this is based on struck a deep chord with me, it is truly what keeps me going on this project
