Dark Matter Publishing LLC, a transmedia company that specializes in the publication and transformation of comic, graphic, and Young Adult books into film and television, is launching a Kickstarter campaign for its brand new property, Uncle Alice Presents.
Uncle Alice Presents is a shock-rock, genre-bending comic book series, graphic novel, and television pilot featuring the legendary Alice Cooper. Each issue tells a story of the grim and macabre seen through the eyes of Uncle Alice, the gatekeeper of the netherworld between Heaven and Hell. From paintings that seek revenge to mad scientists that crossbreed beach babes with fish, the things Uncle Alice will share are just plain creepy.
Two-time Emmy Award-winning writer, director, show runner, and Dark Matter partner Tom Sheppard (Pinky and the Brain, The High Fructose Adventures of the Annoying Orange) created Uncle Alice Presents. Tom came up with the idea when Alice Cooper appeared as a guest on the hit Cartoon Network series The High Fructose Adventures of the Annoying Orange. Once they found out about their mutual affection for horror, Alice and Tom knew the next step was a comic book series and television show.
If successfully funded, all funds will go to the creation, printing, and distribution of the twelve comic books and graphic novel, as well as reward fulfillment. All additional funds will go towards the creation of the television show, whether than means for the trailer, the pilot, or even more episodes! In addition, readers can see a trailer for Uncle Alice Presents in the below video, featuring the creepmaster himself!
Be sure to visit the Uncle Alice Presents Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include Uncle Alice t-shirts, hardcover versions of the graphic novel signed by Alice Cooper and Tom Sheppard, tickets to an Alice Cooper concert, and the chance to be immortalized on the pages of the comics! These are only a handful of the amazing rewards available and more will be added throughout the campaign. The campaign closes on Friday, April 19th, so be sure to donate soon!
