Just a quick one tonight, everyone! 

We continue marching on toward the next stretch goal...

Thank you again to all of you and welcome to our new backers!

Way back in March (like 4 years ago in 2020 time), awesome artist Sorah Suhng did a cover for Stake:

Right now Sorah is running a campaign for an art book featuring her amazing work, plus an opportunity to own the original art for the piece above!


If you get it, let me know!

Back stretch goal coming soon I hope!

Well that escalated quickly! Stretch goal 5 has been passed and 6 is almost unlocked!

I know I keep saying this, but it's truly my state right now.


I wasn't able to post last night when passed our latest stretch and now that I'm finally able to, we're already with $800 of the next!

You guys are truly amazing!

Up next is a piece from a friend of mind who happens to be a great artist! His rendition of Jessamy is just beautifully whimsical, it really makes me smile...

Here's the full art so you can get a better feel for it:

I hope you love it!

Another cool campaign to check out!

Born into the outcast breed of werewolves known as the Monoki, eighteen-year-old Rodney Marcelli is reluctantly thrown into an ancient war between good and evil in today's world where the line has blurred. With the help of Snow Paw, the Pureblood Monoki, and the supernatural evil slayer, Night Hunter, Rod must learn to master his newly found lycanthropy and mysterious kinetic energy power that only he possesses. Rod must fight the Dark Covenant in order to avenge his friends and family, and to save the girl he loves from the master vampire, Lord Malice. Rodney Marcelli is Night Wolf!


I'll be back tomorrow with another update regardless of whether we meet our next stretch goal or not...I've got news ;)

Going live tonight on Comic Conline!

I know I sound like a broken record every time I post, but THANK YOU all so much again. 

Things are going really well and we are on pace to crush the last campaign in both backers and money raised. 

Your support means the world! 

That being said, let's get on with the next stretch goal and see if we can't get you physical backers more free stuff!

If you backed the last campaign, this will look beautiful next to your other sticker!

I set this one relatively modestly so we could hit it quick and add more soon!

Another great campaign to check out!

I will be sharing more campaigns I've backed (because I wouldn't ask you to give a look to something I wouldn't support myself) and believe in as we go along, last time it was Andrew Clemson's Damsel from D.I.S.T.R.E.S.S. campaign. Next up is...


Arthouse collides headlong into Grindhouse! Tantalizing and Titillating Illustrated Tales for Mature Readers.

The Joe Shuster Award Nominated Comics Anthology of Supernatural Tales returns. Featuring scintillating stand-alone stories with full color artwork in a luxurious 8" x 10.5" inch slick magazine format.

This one looks like a lot of fun and has a bunch of great creators. Click the image above or here to check it out!

That's all for now, back soon with more updates!

Stretch Goal #3 has been unlocked and 200+ Backers!

Thanks to all of our amazing backers we've blown through 2 more milestones!

What's up next? MAGNETS!

These came out so good last time, I wanted to do them again with this issue!

I'm so excited with how well this is going and can't wait to unlock some more goals!

Malissa White's Nightmare

Malissa is another fellow Scout creator who's book Nightmare is killing it right now on this platform:

NIGHTMARE follows Lucinda "Luz" Padilla as she discovers her recurring nightmares are actually alternative realities. When news of a fire at a hospital breaks, and her fellow Sleepyheads (the unwilling participants in a twisted sleep study) start going missing, Luz's recurring nightmares resurface and wreck havoc on her relationship, job, and sobriety. With her girlfriend Kara Williams, Luz finds herself face to face with the past she can no longer ignore, and in a nightmare she can no longer escape.

You can find Malissa's campaign by clicking here or the image above!

Thanks again everyone, back soon!
