Scorn Gameplay Trailer

If you love the style of the late, great artist H.R. Giger, whose work has been seen in movies like the Alien franchise and Species, Scorn is a game you’ll likely be interested in seeing more of.

The game has been in development for quite a while now, and previously attempted a Kickstarter effort which unfortunately was not able to meet its goal. But instead of giving up, the team at Ebb Software is pressing forward. They’ve launched a brand new crowdfunding campaign, and you can read more about it and check out their latest gameplay trailer below.

Drawing Blood Kickstarter Kevin Eastman

If any of you are like me, you grew up watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, playing with the brand’s action figures, and reading the comics. But have you ever wondered what it was like for the creators of TMNT — or any other popular franchise for that matter — to hit it big in the comic book industry? What kind of stories do these guys have to tell from behind the scenes?

In Drawing Blood — a graphic novel written by one of TMNT‘s co-creators, Kevin Eastman, and that is currently running on Kickstarter — you’ll get to learn about some of these true stories, only set in a fictionalized world. Joined by comic creators David Avallone and Ben Bishop, Eastman’s Kickstarter for Drawing Blood has passed its goal of $75,000, and with only has a few days left, is now reach for some awesome stretch goals!

I was able to chat with both Avallone and Bishop about the project, and am excited to share their experiences with all of you! Check out the interview here below, along with their video for Drawing Blood!

The Girl Who Kept Night In Her Closet

Hey, folks! It has been a little while since I last posted a Kickstarter Spotlight but I ran across this one completely by accident and loved it! It has only a few weeks left so I figured there is no time like the present. The Girl Who Kept Night In Her Closet is a book about a little girl with enormous power or at least an equally gigantic imagination. It’s up to you to decide exactly where reality exists and fantasy begins. But that is definitely part of the joys of childhood, right?

Continue below for more on the story and campaign, and to watch the Kickstarter video presentation.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Sweet Dreams Cthulhu By Jason Ciaramella

Sweet Dreams Cthulhu

I was introduced to Cthulhu back in the early to mid 90s when a friend in junior high turned me onto Metallica, and soon I heard their amazing instrumental “Call of Ktulu” on their Ride the Lightning album. I was big into reading lyrics back then, and when I got to Metallica’s next album, Master of Puppets and I heard The Thing That Should Not Be, a section of the lyrics stuck with me. Years later in college I took a Horror Films and Fiction class and read H.P. Lovecraft’s short story, Call of Cthulhu and suddenly it all came together. My borderline obsession with Lovecraftian horror and Cthulhu has spilled over to me young daughter. A few years ago I picked up a copy of C is for Cthulhu at New York Comic Con, and the rest was history.

Now the creators of that book, Jason Ciaramella and Greg Murphy, are back with the follow-up, Sweet Dreams Cthulhu, which they are raising for on Kickstarter.

Jail Bait & Trailer Trash Header Kickstarter Image

Hands down, nothing beats getting in on the ground floor of an indie comic. I have yet to be disappointed with anything that involves so much energy and excitement as a creator owned and published comic. Long ago it was difficult to get these projects off the ground but thanks to Kickstarter, it’s a hell of a lot easier these days. For instance, Justin Gray‘s newest labor of love is Jail Bait & Trailer Trash.

I got the chance to see an almost final copy and it is everything you’d expect from one of the dudes that brought you Sex and Violence: Volume 2 a couple of years ago. Read on for more information!

This Off Beat Town Issue 2 Jake Smith Cover

I love a good indie comic book series; especially one with an exhilarating story, witty dialogue, amazing action sequences, stellar illustrations, an ex-mercenary monkey, and giant, killer robots. Yeah, Jake Smith‘s This Off Beat Town is my kind of book.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign for the first issue, Jake is back with the quirky, “off beat” characters that make the city of Nero so entertaining. With a goal of $10,000 for issues two through four, Jake’s new campaign has already raised almost 90 percent with 15 days to go, and has some awesome rewards as well!

I was able to speak with Jake about his project and am happy to share the interview with all of you here at Geeks of Doom. Check it out below along with his Kickstarter campaign video!

GWAR #1- Matt Maguire Cover

GWAR!

Seriously, if that one word doesn’t make you smile and lean forward to read more, then your whole life has been a sham or you’ve been living under a rock. But not a good rock, more like a Nickelback version. Some folks look to KISS or Alice Cooper as leaders in the world of on-stage antics. However, GWAR beats them hands down, along with almost everyone else, for pure entertainment and shock effect. I first saw them thanks to an ex-roommate of mine, John Stange, a life-long fan. So there we were, watching The Skatenigs open up for what turned out to be one of the best shows I saw in the nineties: GWAR live in concert. With goo-spewing guns that shot a variety of substances (don’t ask) into the crowd and a particularly graphic scene involving the disemboweling of a variety of public figure effigies, their presence rivaled that of my own favorite band, Skinny Puppy! I left drenched and smiling; what more could I possibly want? Well, how about a five-issue comic book series from the shock rock metal monsters themselves? That’s right, GWAR comics! And they have named it GWAR: Orgasmageddon, which didn’t surprise me at all. Plus, in addition to the comics, a plethora of GWAR collectibles have been made available to fans. That’s right, this is a Kickstarter fundraiser where you pledge your hard-earned money and help make the concept a reality and you get cool stuff for doing it!

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘The Trial Of Mike Diana,’ A New Documentary From Frank Henenlotter

BAADASSSSS!   |

The Trial of Mike Diana

You may not know the name of Mike Diana, but you should. He is an underground comic artist who courted controversy and tackled challenging and provocative subject matter in his self-published series Boiled Angel. His gleefully, graphically grotesque artwork, influenced by comics legends like Bernie Wrightson and Jack Davis, depicted acts of sex and violence and was definitely not for all tastes.

One particular issue of Boiled Angel sold to an undercover police officer in his small Florida town led to Diana being ensnared in an ongoing murder investigation in the town of Gainesville and the first artist unjustly prosecuted and jailed on charges of obscenity. The Kafkaesque turn of events that resulted in Diana being banned during his three-year probation from producing any drawings or writings and becoming a lightning rod for artistic censorship is the subject of The Trial of Mike Diana, a new documentary from cult horror filmmaking legend Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Brain Damage). A Kickstarter campaign has been released for the documentary, and you can learn more about it and watch a trailer below.
