Stuntman Comics Goes Fully Independent with “Jack the Ripper: Vampire Hunter” Issue 2
I bet you never thought that there would ever be a Jack the Ripper keshi figurine, huh?
In any case… Over the weekend, Stuntman Comics launched a crowdfunding campaign for Jack the Ripper: Vampire Hunter issue 2, the 48-page conclusion to story that began in the first issue earlier this year.
Having previously used Indiegogo for their crowdfunding efforts, the Stuntman team has opted to create a new platform via their own independent website, eliminating the IGG middlemen.
So far, everything appears to be working out well enough, as the Jack the Ripper: Vampire Hunter issue 2 project is already fully funded, having raised nearly $15 thousand at the time of this writing.
Written by Mandy Summers and illustrated by Peter Gilmore, Jack the Ripper: Vampire Hunter is is historical horror tale with a supernatural twist, all based on actual events. Sort of.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Jack the Ripper: Vampire Hunter crowdfunding campaign page:
The Return To Hell
