Default CREEPING FLESH - Dan Brereton's Monster Girls, from Sidekick!

UPDATE: THIS SET WILL BE ON KICKSTARTER MARCH 13

-----------------

Hey gang. Wanted to talk about a little project i'm working on with Dan Brereton and Sidekick, called 'Creeping Flesh: Dan Brereton's Monster Girls.' Thought it might interest some of you here, and thought it would be fun to give you a sneak peek.

It's a small, limited run of premium wax packs. Each pack will contain the complete set of 19 old style retro cards (like Mars Attacks Heritage parallels) and 1 Sticker Card. The art will be full color paintings, some new, some old, some unpublished.

We're printing some prototypes this week, and will probably put it on kickstarter some time soon to fund the full run, and maybe add some bonus features like sketch cards, autographs, foil stamping, etc.

If you guys aren't familiar with Dan's work, he's best known for his creator owned book NOCTURNALS (a new volume is on it's way this summer), but also has written and illustrated books for Marvel and DC, and he recently completed a 4 issue arc on Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight that he wrote and illustrated.

Dan of course has also contributed quite a few paintings to Mars Attacks over the years, including Mars Attacks Occupation, and of course he did sketch cards for the last 3 sets.

Below is an early mock up of the wax wrapper. Pardon the low resolution.

Awesome! I'm a big fan of Dan's work on Mars Attacks. I own over 30 of his sketch cards in total and have also bought art directly from Dan. This set looks fun! I will sponsor the kickstarter once it is up.

These will arrive on Kickstarter on 3/13.

They will be priced at $20 a pack (free domestic shipping) and limited to 500 packs. Other perks and rewards will include sketch cards (limited to 50), autograph metal cards, prints, and a special autographed collector set in a holo-foil stamped black velvet box (limited to 10).

For add-ons, we are creating a special 20-card vacu-form frame-able display, which will run $25.

Thanks! If this is a success, we hope to do more packs with other artists, and eventually a set with all new art, maybe even a full 55 card set with a box and 24 packs.

Dan Brereton has started a facebook page for the set.

https://www.facebook.com/Creeping-Fl...5539164514383/.

We'll be posting news, sneak peeks, and images there.

The kickstarter is planning to commence on Monday, March 13th at 12:00PM EST.

There will be a couple of add-ons, including a specially created 20-card frame to display the set, but will also be good for displaying any cards you may own.

We've just added a collectible miniature display box as a $5 add-on! It is perfectly sized to house a single 20-25 card wax pack, and designed to look like a full size, vintage-style retail display!

I've always loved Brereton's style. I just picked up the last $100 pledge level.
Looking forward to these!

We added the miniature display box and got in our first assembled samples! If you haven't pledged for a set there's still a couple of days left!

Here's the actual cards that will be inserted randomly into the ten rewards. Dan is keeping one for his own personal collection.

Those are beautiful. Glad I jumped in blindly as soon as I saw your post.

For what it's worth, I'd prefer to randomly receive the one that is third from the right in the top row

All right, backers should now be receiving their rewards on these. I got mine yesterday, and it was worth the wait. Thanks again, Mr. Levine, for seeing this through, and to Dan for delivering some more jaw-dropping art for the fans.

I got the $100 level which was

1 x Wax Pack Set
1 x Unused Wax Wrapper
1 x Autograph 11x14 Print
1 x Metal Autograph Card
1 x Color Sketch Card
1 x Creeping Flesh Backer Promo Card P1

There was also a Sidekick Labs promo card in there (CTC 1 from 2013 featuring magician Harry Kellar).

Anyway, all of this was beautifully realized and I was very happy with my Sketch card, which I'll post a picture of here shortly.

Let's see yours!

OK, here's the goods:

Cards, front and back. The sketch card is to the upper right:





Unused Wax Wrapper (with checklist on it, a nice touch):



The print at 11x14 is too big for my scanner, but is the same image as the promo card (and the back of the sketch card). It is signed and numbered out of 250

Looking forward to seeing more sketch cards, so please post 'em here if you got 'em...

Probably not totally the same for you, since you can draw your own awesome stuff, haha. What reward level did you get?
