Kickstarter: in Sanity, AZ – Horror Comic Book Anthology

I mentioned this a while ago, but now it’s up and running on Kickstarter!


A collection of dark tales from a familiar yet strange desert town just off the highway. Beware you don’t find yourself in Sanity, AZ.

  • Launched: Jan 28, 2013
  • Funding ends: Mar 3, 2013

“in SANITY, AZ” is a twisted, 160-page graphic novel anthology featuring tales of a small town along a desert highway in Arizona. The inhabitants of this town are the castaways, looked at sideways by “normal” people that drive by, but here, in Sanity, they run the town.

This project is the brainchild of four creators: Mike FountainMarcel LosadaJames Ninness and Joe Pezzula. None of them knows how to draw, so lucky for you, they’re working with eighteen of the best artists they know: Chris BurkheartCourtney CamachoChris CollinsCollin Fogel,Kevin GemserBen GlibertScott IrwinRich KuhauptFrank Luna,John NarcomeyDonald PoquizJorge SevillaBrian SorianoJed SorianoMike Temple, and Daniel Touchet. And we can’t forget the graceful colors of Shannon Forrey or the hard-hitting covers of Phoenix celebrity, “Big” Chris Wood.

Yup. It’s kind of an all-star crew.
