There are a lot of folks out there trying to raise funds for their creator-owned comics. Hell, I’ve written about a lot of them for this column. Most of the time, it’s a new(ish) concept or character from a creator that no one has heard of before, because let’s face it…it’s tough to get noticed in today’s comics market. But every once in a blue moon, a well-known writer or artist puts something out there that they want to expose to the world at large, and Lady Death: Chaos Rules! is precisely that. It’s a Kickstarter campaign that’s ready to take on the world!
The brainchild of Brian Pulido, Lady Death has been a staple in the comics market since her debut in Evil Ernie #1 way back in 1991. She got her own mini-series the following year and the rest, as they say, is history. Multiple story lines have come and gone. I should know, I own almost everything ever published with Lady Death in it. I’ve got action figures, t-shirts, and statues, too! So when I got offered an advanced look at some exclusive art and write this article, I was pretty stoked. (GoD headquarters all abuzz that day.) I’ve never gotten the chance to meet the creator, but I love his work. Word has it, this is also a great jumping-on point for new readers!
I did get a chance to communicate with Pulido and he was very forthcoming about the ins and outs of this title, insofar as what we can expect to see in this book.
