Sullivan's Sluggers by Mark Andrew Smith and James Stokoe needs your help on Kickstarter!
The Outhouse received an email asking us to spread the word to our friends on facebook about this new horror baseball comic, Sullivan's Sluggers. While I'm sure the 200 people who bother to follow our facebook page, many of whom are my mom, would be very interested, this reporter figured that The Outhouse Front Page would probably be a more appropriate place to share this news. The comic is described like this:
Long past their former glory, the minor league Sluggers get an invitation to play a baseball game in a cursed small town. After the 7th inning stretch, the sun goes down, and the dysfunctional teammates find themselves fighting for their lives against a town of flesh-eating monsters!
Now, it's up to coach Casey Sullivan to help his team escape from being the next dish in the town's terrifying feeding frenzy!
This reporter is not a big baseball fan, but I imagine this is what it's like whenever any baseball team plays an away game against the Cleveland Indians. In any case, the project is being created by Eisner & Harvey Award-winning graphic novel author Mark Andrew Smith and Eisner nominated illustrator James Stokoe, and they're asking for your help on Kickstarter. If you're interested, check out the Kickstarter page here. Here's a message from Smith:
Our goal is to use Kickstarter to complete Sullivan's Sluggers and to produce a beautiful 200 page, color, hardcover book.
We're relying on your support to make Sullivan's Sluggers the reality we all so very much want it to be. $30 for 200 pages in glorious hardcover format is very reasonably priced, and Stokoe's art on its own makes Sullivan's 'the not to be missed' book of the year.
This book is exclusive only to Kickstarter backers and available here for a limited time.
Thanks for taking a moment to check out our Kickstarter project. You can follow updates here and also follow me on twitter and my blog where I'll be sharing our progress on putting the book together.

UPDATE: Outhouser Amlah6 helpfully pointed out in the comments section that the word "need" in the teaser is not entirely accurate. As it turns out, Smith and Stokoe are currently rolling naked in the piles of cash this Kickstarter project has raised so far, and it should be your honor to contribute $30 and recieve this wonderfully crafted hardcover masterpiece, but honestly, it doesn't matter to them either way, so you can go fuck yourself if you don't want to.
