Being a horror writer is never easy, there are no shortcuts to fame, fortune and notoriety. Now Matt Shaw has managed one of the three, so please help him get some fame and fortune. Matt Shaw's brand of extreme horror may not be for everyone, but Matt is one of the few true gents of the genre. He has always been one of those writers who makes a point to help others, a great guy and a great writer.
He is currently in the process of producing a set of comics based on some of his short stories, and needs your help to pay for the artwork. Now i am not normally a fan of Kickstarters as a rule, but when the artist involved is deemed Ginger Nuts worthy I fully get behind the project. He is offering some great deals, from being a character in the comic, some amazing lifetime advertising opportunities, a story based around you, and loads more. I'll let Matt take over and tell you little bit about the project. And please follow the link below to help Matt out, even a small donation of £1 will help to bring this great project to life.
F*cked-Up Shorts, also known as the White Cover Books written by horror author Matt Shaw......
are known to be somewhat disturbing, for an idea of what they're like - think along the lines of "Tales from the Crypt" but... darker.
There are over twenty of these stories written (available on Amazon with good reviews) but, so far, only ten of these are being released in comic form - the idea being each 20-25 page comic being its own standalone twisted tale, all on different themes but all designed very much to shock. These are, after all, written and adapted by Matt Shaw who is known for pushing boundaries with his Black Cover Range of books.
Issues one, two and three of the shorts will be based around the stories "Eleven", "Nugget" and "She" with a top artist lined-up! Keep an eye on this page for sample drawings to be added!
The funds being raised are going towards the artists work and the lettering of issue one. The story adaptation has already been completed. If there are funds left-over, they will be put into the second issue and so on, so fourth.
