Alice Cooper has paired with Tom Sheppard (The High Fructose Adventures of the Annoying Orange) for a new Kickstarter project revolving around an Uncle Alice Presents series of comics and, possibly, more.
The $200,000 goal, which they are trying to raise by April 19, would fund a comic book anthology series, graphic novel and, possibly, even a future TV series.
This is not some hoary tribute to EC Comics. Sure, it’s a comic book anthology horror series, graphic novel, and, if you demand it, a television series, but all comparisons end there. Unlike your mommy’s quaint horror comics of yore, UNCLE ALICE PRESENTS is the one and only horror series brought to you by and featuring the visionary maestro of shock rock himself, ALICE COOPER. That’s right, Alice freakin’ Cooper!
Created by Tom Sheppard (co-creator of and show runner for The High Fructose Adventures of the Annoying Orange), join us on this epic adventure to publish all twelve comic book issues of UNCLE ALICE PRESENTS, along with the compilation graphic novel, and hopefully the television pilot. We’ll even let one lucky backer come up with the idea for one of the comic books!
As with almost all Kickstarter projects, people who donate will get benefits, depending on the amount given, from an Uncle Alice Presents pin at $3 to playing a round of golf with Cooper at $10,000.
Investors and those just interested can see more at Kickstarter.
