Former DC editor and Gotham by Gaslight writer Brian Augustyn is working on a crime and ghost story set during the worst snowstorm in Chicago history. One night, army veteran and former JAG investigator Kate Bailey dreams of her own murder at the hands of a monstrous psychopath.

Now she has a mystery on her hands, one that will lead her to a supernatural menace.
For a $20 pledge, backers receive a print or digital copy of the book.
Writer Adam McGovern, artist/creator Paolo Leandri, and colorist Dom Regan bring us this four-issue comic miniseries about supernatural redemption:
Reluctant hellspawn Plenilunio leads a cast of lovelorn lost souls all competing for mystic artifacts they believe can lift their curse. Plenilunio, teen-from-hades Hotspot and the haughty warrior-queen Hellena all struck bargains with the roguish agents of the Empyre that granted all wishes and then took away all hope. Now their agendas collide and strange alliances may emerge as they race to outsmart the evil, irresistible Underboss or outfight his monster minions! Meanwhile Plenilunio’s mortal allies, the saintly Ludmilla and her peril-prone Grandpa Lowe, are caught in the crossfire while Plenilunio’s spellbound lover Lidia sleepwalks his castle and haunts his heart. A modern-day redemption-thriller not about mad egos who gamble for power and fame, but unwise dreamers who find themselves fighting for the peace and happiness they already had. And often fighting big, scary monsters. We did mention the big scary monsters?
For a $25 pledge, backers receive PDFs of all four issues of the miniseries, plus a PDF of McGovern and Leandri's out-of-print comic Dr. Id, Psychologist of the Supernatural.
