Santa Fights Dracula in Kickstarter Project

Artist Melissa DeJesus and writer Ed Power hope to raise $9,500 on Kickstarter to finish a graphic novel that pits Santa against Dracula (video introduction embedded above).

The funds would give DeJesus enough time to pencil, ink, letter and color their 175-page comics project. They would also print and ship “a self published, unique, one time, special printing.”

Here’s more about the project: “Santa vs Dracula is full color graphic novel about Count Dracula invading Santa Claus‘s workshop with an army of monsters (Frankenstein’s Monster, Mr. Hyde, Invisible Man, the Wicked Witch of the West, etc.) in order to gain Santa’s ability to enter people’s homes at will. Of course, Santa has his own allies and they aren’t about to give the big-guy up without a fight!”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
