Axmaniac 00

The slasher movie is a classic of the horror genre with such notable entries as Friday the 13th and Halloween. It's a personal favorite of mine and I'm sure I'm not alone. That's just one of the reasons I was quick to back Axmaniac, a new slasher comic from Ammar Al-Chalabi currently on Kickstarter. It's helmed as a “back-to-basics” story that Al-Chalabi created by translating his love for old horror movies. It's essentially a love letter to the genre.

Axmaniac follows a group of teenagers (obviously) as they're hunted in the woods by the title character. There is nothing about that sentence that I don't love. The comic itself is already completed so the Kickstarter campaign is intended to raise funds for printing and shipping costs. Rewards include the comic itself, prints, posters, sketches, commissions, and a chance to be drawn as one of the Axmaniac's victims.  The Kickstarter campaign is scheduled to run through June 1st, 2018.  At the time of this writing, it is 30% towards its funding goal.
