So here’s the thing. Because of the amazing people who’ve already reserved their copy of THE SQUIDDER, we’re giving everyone who has and who wants to get a book from now on, a fancy bookmark as yet another thankyou. Because that’s what 44FLOOD is all about.
Not to mention… Riley Michael Rossmo just blew us all away with a stunning image to go in the book, I truly can’t thank him enough!
Got a bit more SQUIDDER news ( You know, that little kickstarter pre-order for my next project, an original graphic novel via 44FLOOD… found here, ahem!
Because I am insane… I’m announcing something a little special as a thank you, in this vid. Because… size matters:
Due to overwhelming support from you guys, I just decided to make the damn book 33% bigger. ( Page count, not actual dimensions! ) at no extra cost to anyone.
Thanks so much for all the support guys. Doing creator owned work is so risky… it’s not about the money, it’s about ideas and having an incredible, amazing audience that seems to be receptive to them. Thank you, for empowering creative people.
SQUID KILLER. Part of THE SQUIDDER art I’m doing up for @44FLOOD. The book is still up for pre-order on Kickstarter now: http://kck.st/1hPVzAF
An original graphic novel from Ben Templesmith about an old soldier from a forgotten war now in an alien world.
THE SQUIDDER is an original graphic novel about an old soldier from a forgotten war in a post-apocalyptic world that has left him behind. The book promises heavy horror, fantasy, and Lovecraftian elements, as well as black humor.
THE SQUIDDER will be a limited run 8.5x12” 108 page hardcover graphic novel written and drawn by Ben Templesmith, New York Times best selling comic book artist (creator/co-creator of 30 DAYS OF NIGHT with Steve Niles, FELL with Warren Ellis, WORMWOOD: GENTLEMAN CORPSE, and WELCOME TO HOXFORD) in his first new creator-owned traditional comic in five years!
We’re also offering a special limited collectible KRAKEN edition of THE SQUIDDER that will have the hardcover book housed in a beautiful slipcase that features exclusive art with an embossed, numbered, and signed plate included in the book. And don’t forget the two Kickstarter exclusive prints, Squid Mommy and Squid Daddy!
In the vein of Mad Max meets Cthulhu, THE SQUIDDER will explore themes of a changing world, propaganda, and the nature of control via the main character. We’ll follow this journey of unfinished business through a world now alien and destroyed by a war which humanity lost generations ago against the almighty squid.
Everyone who pledges to help make THE SQUIDDER will get their name placed in the book and will also get first-look at a 9 page prelude! The prelude will be sent out as a PDF in an update at the end of the Kickstarter, whether we reach the goal or not.
