The Demon Dyspair has attacked the Earth. Six trapped souls, are given a second chance at life in order to fight this evil, however they are “resurrected” not so much as themselves, but on creatures that are based on the Universal Monsters. That is the core of the storyline for UWS Comics‘ upcoming title, Until We Sleep. The first issue of which is complete, and the company already has sample copies in hand with all corrections already made. The book is a full color, 32-page comic consisting of a pair of stories
Until We Sleep: Abandon All Hope, Part 1, is a 22-page story, which brings readers into a small part of the UWS Universe. It tells the tale of the demon Dyspair and his attempt to conquer Earth. As stated, the “Heroes” of this piece are based on the old Universal Monsters, save that they are now updated for the 21st Century and are pitted against Dyspair and his ever-growing army of demons. The actual journey is intended to span multiple issues and is being produced as ongoing comicbook series. The stories creator and writer, Bob Garr already has the first three issues completely written and is working hard on issue four. Issue two is already in full production with Sal Otero doing the pencils and Erik D Fullmer and Fran Jung working on Inks.
The Angel Wars: Issue 0, Part 1, is an eight-page story that deals with Heaven and Hell and the eternal conflict between the two. It is drawn by Gabe Smith, Inked by Fran Jung, and Colored by Isai Jose Leal Garza
The folks behind this comic state that they are not looking to get rich off of this Kickstarter, they only want to publish their books, and insist that backers are funding a “sure thing.” The funds collected from this Kickstarter will primarily be used for the printing of issue #1 in bulk and to cover the shipping costs, to us, then to you. This will also include the costs for the variant covers, prints, magnets, postcards and any other incentives not listed. Any remaining funds after all incentives have been fulfilled will be used for future production such as, ads, promotions, company needs and supplies, writer/artist fees, and website hosting.
The PDF and CBZ file links will be emailed upon completion of the funding period.
Once funds have been cleared the orders will be placed to the printers for all copies and incentives. The turnaround time should be about a month and they expect for the book and incentives to be in backers’ hands by the end of March 2015, but they are using April as a “Safe Date” just in case. If there are any delays, they will notify backers by email and by an update on this Kickstarter page.
Commission-level pledges will be based on first come first serve. All artists are busy working on their respected titles, so each commission will be completed ASAP. Backers will receive an email and/or a Facebook message with an update on the progress of your commission. May is the estimated projection for having all 10 commissions completed, if they fill the reward tier for each artist.
Depending on a backer’s pledge level, they may receive multiple deliveries from different addresses. (e.g.; T-Shirts will be coming from Oregon, the comic and incentives from Pennsylvania, and the commissions from all across the Country.)
This project will be funded on Monday, March 2, 2015.
