The Damned Return to Save Creation in “Ed Gein: Demon Hunter” (Crowdfunding Spotlight)
Independent author and graphic novelist Lucifer Storm recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for Ed Gein: Demon Hunter, a genre-bending supernatural adventure that blends elements of horror, fantasy, and comedy. Yes, comedy. And yes, that Ed Gein. The 1950s serial killer. Only in comics, folks!
Written and created by Storm and featuring black and white illustrations by Kristian Rossi (Trespasser), Ed Gein: Demon Hunter is the heartwarming take of how a damned soul is recruited by the denizens of Hell to save the universe.
Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Ed Gein: Demon Hunter Indiegogo campaign page:
After a deranged demon escapes the bowels of Hell intending to destroy everything in existence, Satan is forced to send a damned soul to Plainfield, Wisconsin as a demon hunter. However, when he discovers that Satan has chosen the infamous serial killer, Ed Gein, to be his demon hunter, Satan’s assistant, Ezra, is concerned that his master has put too much faith in the wrong candidate.
Armed with a sacrificial dagger and a lifetime of deep-seated guilt, torment and trauma, Ed reluctantly returns to his old stomping ground intending to capture the demon and return them to Hell before it’s too late. However, Ed must first deal with his inner demons in order to capture the evilest demon he has ever known.
Will Ed be able to overcome his past traumas? Will he be able to come to terms with the crimes he had committed when he was alive? And will he be able to do so before the universe is destroyed?
There’s only one way to find out…Prepare for the ultimate face-off!
