After last year’s unsuccessful but encouraging campaign, Tales of the Wolfman has returned to Kickstarter with a bigger, badder, more adorable campaign that’s jam-packed with even monsters and fairytale creatures.
The Tales of the Wolfman series is a retelling of the Red Riding Hood story that poses the question, what if Red met the Wolf, fell in love and married him? But in this case, the Wolf is a Wolfman. In this all-ages series, writer David Gruba and artist Rene Castellano play with the possibilities of Wolf and Red’s uncommon pairing by blending Universal Monsters with Fairy Tale Classics.
This Kickstarter campaign is seeking $5,000 produce a physical book containing the two latest comics in the series, Feast of the Wolfman and Time of the Wolfman, plus a new mini-comic exclusive to the book, and a collection of Wolf & Red artwork from a gigantic list of contributors. You can see some previews of that art at the bottom of this post.
The rewards are exactly what I want from a campaign based on a series with a lot of content: digital and physical copies of the new book, your name in the credits, and original artwork. You can also get Bride of the Wolfman and House of the Wolfman, the first two comics in the series (I have them and they’re adorable). Also, if you’re speedy and / or lucky, you can be one of the four backers who gets drawn into the new mini-comic as a party guest.
The campaign ends on Monday, July 20th. Go check it out! David and Rene are wonderful guys making a great comic that’s fun for adults and kids alike, and they deserve your support.
