ABBADON: A new PaperFilms Kickstarter collaboration

We have some wonderful and exciting news to share.  The PaperFilms team has launched it’s 8th, that’s right, 8th Kickstarter project.

With this project, we have started a partnership with the multi-talented Adaptive Studios (http://adaptivestudios.com/).  You can head on over to Kickstarter and check out ABBADON!

ABBADON_Cover_Tim

Fans of our run on both JONAH HEX and ALL STAR WESTERN are in for a treat as we offer a hard hitting, graphic, yet intensely dramatic character driven story in the same genre, however free of any rating system.

With this graphic novel adaption of ABBADON, a screenplay by Spencer Marstiller, PaperFilms is happy to announce our partnership with Adaptive Studios for this special project.

In ABBADON, we introduce an unconventional western, set in a town where illicit sex, gambling and even murder are legal under the right conditions. The story is gorgeously illustrated by Fabrizio Fiorentino, whom we collaborated with on All-Star Western, and complimented by the lush digital painting style of artist Alessia Nocera. Featuring a dynamic and stunning cover by Tim Bradstreet (International Horror Guild Award winner for Best Artist), ABBADON boasts special reward categories featuring an exclusive limited edition mystery cover and print by multiple Eisner and Shuster Award winner Darwyn Cooke and a special print by Amanda Conner.

 

The entire square bound, SOFTCOVER book will be a total of 72 pages, plus material, printed on the best paper stock available and printed in the USA. We need to raise the amount featured to cover everything involved in producing a book this big and beautiful as well as printing, shipping and handling.

The inspiration for this project comes from our love of mature westerns, murder mysteries and the horror genre.  Once Adaptive Studios shared the original, unpublished screenplay for ABBADON with us, it was a project we immediately fell in love with.

Because of that, we offer a big THANK YOU to everyone out there from all of us at PaperFilms and our creative partners on this project, the crew at Adaptive Studios.

Reasons PaperFilms loves our local Comic Stores

Everyone here at the PaperFilms team loves our local Comic Stores.  Even if we have our books in digital format, even if we use the Kickstarter format to distribute our books, we still always work with and support as many of our local Comic Retailers.  What is better is if we are able to have our a store come up to us and offer up a wonderful opportunity to spotlight the team.

When a wonderful staffer at B&M Amusement approached us about doing a spotlight on Jimmy Palmiotti and said he had worked out  an idea to help not only promote the creator but try to draw new readers into our projects, we quickly worked out the details and jumped in.  Tyler went all out.

If you’re in the area, be sure to check out for the month of September the spotlight on Jimmy Palmiotti and the other PaperFilms team:

And as we continue on the Labor Day holiday, we have been so thankful to reach our stated goal for Sex & Violence: Vol. 2 but we’re not looking to stop.  We’ve already got one stretch goal announced and we’ve got a couple other items cooked up that we’ll be posting soon.  So, if you’ve ever considered backing a Kickstarter by the PaperFilms team, now is a good time.  We’ve got plenty of options to purchase both the current project but also snag a copy of Sex & Violence: Vol. 1 with a new Amanda Conner and Dave Johnson cover.  This is important as of right now, we have no more copies of Vol. 1 (first print).  A testament to everyone’s desire to support these projects.  We can’t thank you enough.
