Here's your chance to help local shop launch a new (and presumably awesome) comic series.
Horrorbles, the unique cult horror store in Berwyn, is hoping to create a comic anthology "featuring stories that pay tribute to the classic EC comics like Vault of Horror and Tales from the Crypt, while keeping a decidedly modern edge that is seen in films like SAW and Trick ‘R Treat."
Berwyn's very own Svengoolie (Rich Koz) is slated to author an introduction to the series and store owner John Aranza will introduce the stories. Rafael Nieves will contribute the writing; Dan Dougherty will contribute the artwork.
And it appears the series will get meta — stories in the anthology will take place in and around the store, 6729 Roosevelt Road.
To help fund the project, Aranza has taken to Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding website. If you back the idea, you can contribute to the project through several donation levels, from $6 to $1,000.
As of Monday afternoon, the project is just $358 shy of the $5,000 fundraising goal, with 11 days left to contribute.
