Mystery Ghost Puppeteering Douchebags - Kickass Kickstarters - Curse of the Vessel

In a reverse Deadman story, Vincent is cursed to live out the final wishes of the dead, and ghosts don't give a fffff......

If you're not backing Indie creators on Kickstarter, you're not living. They're always fun to back with all the rewards, and gangsters caught up in paranormal possessions, witches and spells are just the place for creative niches. Written by the Ed, Edd & Eddy of comics, Michael, Mike & Michael teamed up once again for the second issue and have just 8 days left to successfully complete the second campaign.

Michael, Mike and Michael are underdogs squeezing out this second issue three and a half years after the first. I'm told their bosses, wives and children apologized profusely in song and/or interpretive dance for their annoying existence in slowing down the creativity it takes to envision and execute this unique adventure of mafia bro meets the will of other dead bros.


Vincent Faustino is the muscle who tangled with the wrong witch, and got himself cursed to become the Vessel of the dead, forced to perform their will. I still had issue 1 saved on my computer from before and after catching up, I dived into the second issue which doesn't have colors at the moment. Apparently they were stolen by a crystal rainbow witch or lost after a computing accident (sounds like someone was downloading free porn). Still, the art had improved from the first issue, I noticed more detail in the beginning. It picks up right where the first left off, and the dialogue really starts to bring Vincent more to life than just some schmuck who's cursed to be possessed by rampaging ghosts.  


Since being possessed by the latest ghost with a personal vendetta, Vincent ended up killing the wrong guys and creates some enemies to complicate his duties as the mob's gun. In the second issue, we start to see the beginning of something more to the protagonist when he meets a good witch seen in the first scene of issue 1.

Curse of the Vessel Issue 2

One way to explain the series might be Black Magick meets Freaky Friday with all the witches and body-takeovers. It's fun & worth the support to bring a vision alive. Compared to what's on the shelves, I'd give Curse of the Vessel #1&2 a solid 7, but compared to other Kickstarters, I'd give it a 9. Totally worth the few bones it takes to support a good project.


So you got the money to support 'em or not? No pressure....Wouldn't want anyone getting hurt...8 days left!

About the Author - LukeAnthony

When Luke isn't writing reviews, he's writing manuals (occupation), original comics (vocation), children's books, or music (recreation). As a lover of all things high-concept, sci-fi, and/or philosophical, comics found their way into his life only a few years ago, at the ripe age of 26. It was V for Vendetta & Watchmen that led to his pathological media consumption rebirth of 2012. Ever since then, he found himself happier, more child-like, a tad bit smarter, and a much better liar. True to Outhouser gospel, he believes humor, like water, must be present in all things. If it's not, it's too dry & sucks the life out. Sarcasm, the salty demeanor of the South, frightened this idealist in youth, but is now the occasional spice used in his well seasoned personality. He sold all he had to leave his old world behind (cars, house, belongings) & become a full-time traveler across the US of A, a decision that altered his inner world as much as his outer one. If it has humor, depth, spiritual significance, and/or technicality and in that order, then consider it on this briny dude's shelf and up for review. Favorite on-going series include Black Science and Saga. This light, but deep fellow can be found on Facebook and/or Twitter.
