A Christmas “Evil” Lurks Just Around the Corner
Kickstart the Return of the Celebrated Series
Some Strange Disturbances
“…an engaging and enthralling story that expertly mixes historical fiction and horror into something devastatingly beautiful.”
– Pharaoh Miles, Graphic Policy
Come gather round the hearth, dear friends, Headless Shakespeare Press has just launched their Kickstarter campaign for Some Strange Disturbances: A Cold Winter’s Eve!
Return to the acclaimed Some Strange Distrubances series with an all-new anthology, curated by Xeric Foundation Grant award-winner and Ignatz nominee, Craig Hurd-McKenney (The Brontës: Infernal Angria), which celebrates the Victorian tradition of Christmas ghost stories with a hauntingly fantastic collection of shorts by contributors including Peter Gross (Lucifer), Vince Locke (Sandman), Michael Conrad (Doom Patrol), Lauren Franklin (Sweat Like Dogs), G Romero Johnson (Crush), Keni Thomas, and Kam White, with a cover by Tyler Smith Owings! As the stories unfold, each crafted by a different comics creator, the night builds to the biggest shock of all…
“We need to hear different stories now more than ever, with artists allowed to explore their creative practice in the ways they see fit to do so,” said Craig Hurd-McKenney. “A Cold Winter’s Eve features work by a diverse group of BIPOC, queer, and journeyman ally talent. I love the idea of mixing upcoming voices with established industry veterans like Peter and Vince. It makes for a really special book, and allows for the reader to get to know the work of some really talented folks they may not have encountered before.”
Tier pledges include Headless Shakespeare Press donations to LGBTQ libraries and resource centers of your choice, Headless Shakespeare Press Flashpack collections of releases, paper dolls, a tote, and more!
The horror of Christmas will be here before you know it.
Headless Shakespeare Press launched in 2000 and has since become the hub for inclusive queer comics, celebrated through both its content and roster of talented creators.
