Yesterday, October 20th, an exciting crowdfunding campaign commenced at Kickstarter (and today, Kickstarter chose it as a Staff Pick in the comics category) — the project VISIONS FROM PUNKTOWN.
Taking its inspiration from my many stories set in the nightmarish far future city called Punktown, VISIONS FROM PUNKTOWN will be an anthology of eight individual short stories, brought to life via the talents of eight brilliant and accomplished artists from around the world. The scripts are adapted from my original stories by Christopher Taylor, who is also overseeing the whole publishing venture and thus the Kickstarter campaign. All of this is a heavy undertaking, but Chris has impressed me thoroughly along the way — not least, with his skillful and respectful adaptation of my stories into the comic book medium. But no surprise, there; Chris has written scripts for EERIE, CREEPY, and HELLRAISER comics.
His amazing crew of artists, and the stories they’ll be adapting, are:
THE REFLECTIONS OF GHOSTS: Rafa Garres
THE LIBRARY OF SORROWS: Huseyin Ozkan
WILLOW TREE: Sinclair Klugarsh
FORGE PARK: Eric York
THE PALACE OF NOTHINGNESS: Frank Walls
MONSTERS: Dug Nation
PRECIOUS METAL: Stephane De Caneva
THE UNBEARABLE BEING OF LIGHT: Steven Russell Black
For anyone who loves horror, science fiction, the weird, the bizarre, the fantastical — for anyone who relishes vivid phantasmagorical artwork – I urge you to go check out the Kickstarter between now and Nov. 20th, 2015, and consider pledging. Remember, this is not a charity asking for donations; you’ll be pre-ordering a beautiful book, projected to be 130 plus pages, that is guaranteed to whisk you away to a dangerous, frightening, but enthralling alien world.
So please, consider taking a journey to Punktown. You may not come back…but then, you may not want to.
