A 55 page original graphic novel sequel to The Derogatory Tales of Franklin and Ghost.
Garrett Gunn here. I’m the creator of this Kickstarter and it’s subject; Franklin and Ghost. About a year ago, we ran a successful Kickstarter for our initial book, The Derogatory Tales of Franklin and Ghost.
Since it’s creation, we have visited 15 conventions, 4 store signings and 6 podcasts. The general consensus we gathered from each event was that people couldn’t wait to get their hands on more, so here we are.
In case anyone is new to our story, here is a brief synopsis of Franklin and Ghost:
In a last ditch effort to see more of the universe before accepting their inevitably boring lives as miners on their home planet Defilion, Franklin and Ghost steal a ship and head out for one last adventure.
When they accidentally crash to Earth, they seek shelter in the bodies of a couple unsuspecting hosts. Hell bent on having a good time, Franklin and Ghost team up for the rage-filled quest of a lifetime. But if they aren’t careful, they may leave a bloody trail of bread crumbs easily followed by those who would seek to destroy them for disobeying interplanetary protocol.
**The book is 100% drawn and colored! It is being prepped for letters and will then be ready for print**
**Franklin and Ghost No Fox Given is a 55-page graphic novel.**
Meet The Team:
An occasionally talented writer, Garrett Gunn is the creator and writer of Franklin and Ghost. He has been published nine times and currently writes numerous titles for a variety of independent publishers. Some of his other works include The Boxmasters: A Twisted Tale Through Time, Go West, The Fear Diaries, and Days to Come.
For those of you who don’t know of Nicolas Touris, he is most likely one of the most creative and insanely talented people in independent comics. He has drawn a handful of amazing titles (including three of my own) and continues to impress not only myself but other creators and readers around the world.
Lastly, but DEFINITELY not least, is our promo/concept artist; Marcelo Trom. I knew of Marcelo’s work from the amazing stuff he has done on books for other publishers. I remember seeing one of his covers on a book at my LCS and thought he would be an amazing fit as our cover artist. I figured he would be too busy for us but low and behold he made time to do not one, but THREE covers for the original book and has signed on to do a convention and Kickstarter exclusive cover for this one with inks by Jeremy Clark and colors by Tommy Shelton!
