Being a small time operation, all the costs are direct and streamlined.

Everything will go to the production and shipping of books and rewards. Special thanks to Thomas, Stephen E, Kymber M, Kelly P, and truly anyone else that's advised or encouraged me through this process or ever in my career. Risks and challenges This is my first Kickstarter, and the lead up is a doozy.

Getting the goal right, managing costs and expectations has been a test.


But with assistance from some expert Kickstarter creators, I feel confident in this campaign. All the creative work is already done, the comic is made and is just waiting to be put to paper. I've printed books before, as well as merchandise, and know that I can create the product promised.

I've received quotes from printers, and they are ones I've personally used and can vouch for their work. Questions about this project? We love walking corpse stories … and we relish tales of sadism. There were Christmas stories with coffins under the tree; zombie-lovers embraced with maggoty smooches; insensitive husbands were barbecued; kids framed their parents for murder; gamblers bet body parts; and baseball diamonds were marked out with human intestines.

By here were over a hundred competing horror titles in the market. Comics had been studied by educational psychologists since the twenties. Research usually focused on literacy, and was not widely read outside academic journals. This argument was given scientific credibility by the psychiatrist Fredric Wertham, who began publishing on the relationship between comics and juvenile delinquency in Publishers responded by forming the Association of Comics Magazine Publishers, and establishing a self-regulating code of practice.

Republican Governor Thomas E. Corroborating, to a certain extent, his thesis, a media-driven moral panic followed. Church groups and PTAs organised public comic book burnings.

The 4 Senate Subcommittee to Investigate Juvenile Delinquency was reconvened, and Wertham and his arch nemesis, Gaines, appeared on the same day. Testimony was filmed and broadcast.

Wertham was used to public speaking, while Gaines, however, did not look good on television. He was oratorically out of his depth, and rattled by an accusation of racism from Wertham.

Do you think that is in good taste?

Gaines was fighting on two flanks. The Seduction of the Innocent therefore deployed the same implicit causal arguments as, for example, the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice.

Wertham went on to campaign against violence on television. Censorship would 5 have been a violation of the First Amendment, but the message was clear. The industry chose self-regulation. Romance stories shall emphasise the value of the home and the sanctity of marriage.

All scenes of horror, excessive bloodshed, gory or gruesome crimes, depravity, lust, sadism, [and] masochism shall not be permitted.

Scenes dealing with … walking dead, torture, vampires … ghouls, cannibalism, and werewolfism are prohibited. In every instance good shall triumph over evil. Although mainstream American comics were now effectively G-rated by a rigorously conservative manifesto, the transgressive graphic and narrative sophistication of EC was a clear intertextual influence on the next generation.

A new generation of independent film-makers were also pursuing horror as cultural critique, while abandoning the Gothic revivals of Hammer and American International.

George A. Horror movies, when I was in my formative years, were generally bad … The ECs on the other hand, were … gritty, there was a lot going on in each frame, the stories were great, and the effects were sensational! Replicating an EC comic on screen was not a new idea.

Amicus Productions made a series of EC inspired movies between and , including the direct adaptations Tales from The Crypt , and The Vault of Horror Ralph Richardson played the Crypt Keeper.

Hooper is the quintessential heir to the EC aesthetic, in particular the work of Jack Davis. There was also a common preoccupation with cannibalism, necrophilia and putrefaction. Do you like blood, violence, freaks of nature? A textual doubling has now occurred in American Gothic, in which genre artefacts are critically and aesthetically labelled as either legitimate or illegitimate.

Time is a factor, as both EC comics and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are now artistically valid and academically respectable. Other divisions remain ideological.

Good taste would appear to be guaranteed by major network distribution and a positive portrayal of law enforcement. The extreme violence and lack of moral centre in the work of directors like Zombie remains more difficult to accept.

Kim Paffenroth compares with the aesthetically justifiable violence of Sophocles and Shakespeare Paffenroth , while Psychologist Dave Grossman — in Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill — argues that violence in television, movies and video games contributes to real-life violence by a process of training and desensitisation similar to combat experience Grossman The influence of Gaines and Wertham would seem to have no end.

Benton, Mike.Through this framework, the ongoing applicability and relevance of the Cthulhu mythos is evident: monstrous explorations can be seen to be part of the wider human experience, not constrained to the period in which Lovecraft was writing or to his unique situation or context.

Mountfort ed. Moreover, the fact that he was a clerk in a fire insurance office, and did his work with strict attention, never allowed him to forget for one moment that, just beyond the dingy brick walls where the hundred men scribbled with pointed pens beneath the electric lamps, there existed this glorious region where the important part of himself dwelt and moved and had its being.
