The “Ed Gein: Demon Hunter” Saga Comes to an End (Crowdfunding Spotlight)
Hell hath no fury like the Butcher of Plainfield
Independent comic book creator Lucifer Storm recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for issues 3 and 4 of Ed Gein: Demon Hunter.
Written by Storm (Lady Satan, Jericho) and featuring black and white illustrations by Kristian Rossi (Rad Rose, Trespasser), Ed Gein: Demon Hunter is a supernatural horror book starring the infamous 20th Century serial killer. Fictional, of course.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Ed Gein: Demon Hunter Indiegogo campaign page:
Ed Gein, The Butcher Of Plainfield, has been dead for seven years. Stuck in a Hell loop, Ed continually digs up his mother’s grave over and over again, destined to never leave what he thinks is Plainfield Cemetery.
But when Ed’s Hell loop is interrupted by Satan himself, who asks Ed to go back to Plainfield as his personal Demon Hunter, Ed begins to fear the worst. A Deranged demon has escaped with the intention of destroying Heaven, Hell and everything in between. Satan can’t leave Hell unattended, but he can send someone else into the field to do the dirty work for him. And who better to catch a deranged entity than a once-deranged maniac?
Now, armed with a sacrificial dagger and accompanied by a Hell-spawn disguised as a Blood Hound, Ed must do everything he can to overcome the traumas of his past so that he can protect the universe from complete annihilation.
Will Ed be able to overcome the demons of his past in order to capture the deranged demon that lurks in the shadows of Plainfield, Wisconsin? Or will he give in to the fears and the ghosts of his past trauma?
Backers can get digital versions of Ed Gein: Demon Hunter issues 3 & 4 for approximately $5 (converted from British pounds), while physical copies start at approximately $10. You can also get a trade paperback edition of the four-issue series for roughly $24. If you have more money to spend, you can also receive the following tchotchkes and extras:
- Multiple copies of the books
- Scriptbook editions
- An Ed Gein: Demon Hunter t-shirt
- Individual issues 1 & 2 if you want to catch up
It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $12 for those in the United States.
