The Dead Presidents - An Original Graphic Novel To Be Self-published Through Kickstarter
1888 PressRelease - Launch of a new Kickstarter to self-publish an original graphic novel about super-powered DEAD PRESIDENTS fighting super-villains from history and saving humanity! Starting Constitution Day, the day celebrating the document that without there would be no DEAD PRESIDENTS, and lasting 38 days...the number of DEAD PRESIDENTS.
This is a Kickstarter project to raise funds to self-publish an original graphic novel (OGN) about the 38 dead presidents gaining super-powers to save Earth from a cosmic-powered Hitler and his allies from the trash-bin of history.
THE DEAD PRESIDENTS (TDP) combine a love of presidential history and super-hero comic books into one epic tale written by Kevin Garcia and illustrated by Jeremy Massie. After Hitler invades Earth, Thomas Jefferson comes up with a plan to stop him, but not all of TDP are interested in Earth's problems including the one that can save the day: GEORGE WASHINGTON. He's enjoying the After-Life living it up with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.
Kevin is a former high school social studies teacher turned screenwriter. "I have useless presidential knowledge floating around in my head right next to everything I know about comic books," says the writer and comic book reader since 1991. "So I smashed them together." Not only a reader but he also had a seven-year career behind the counter of two different comic book shops. While knowledgeable about the industry he had no idea how to get an artist and so last year, through a successful Kickstarter, he raised funds to hire an artist to bring TDP to life. A little over two hundred responded from around the world to the ad looking for an artist. Jeremy applied with a simple sentence and some amazing artwork. Jeremy lives in Virginia with his wife and young children and is the creator of ALL MY GHOSTS.
The Kickstarter launches on the 227th anniversary of the completion and signing of the Constitution. It will last 38 days in honor of the 38 dead presidents as well as the governing document that make TDP universe possible. Each day of the Kickstarter campaign, visitors to the site will be introduced to a dead president starting with Ronald Reagan and working down to number one.
If the goal is not met, then nothing happens. TDP stay dead. Contributing as little as $1 can prevent that, so help re-elect THE DEAD PRESIDENTS to super-power!!!
