BILLY BOY KICKSTARTER NOW LIVE!
Frank Forte and Asylum Press have joined forces to launch a Kickstarter for Billy Boy comics and stories. This collection of Billy Boy #’s 1-3 and some classic From Beyonde comics feature early Billy Boy stories, hopes to reintroduce Billy Boy to the masses.
“This has always been a passion project of mine, “ says Frank Forte, creator, writer and illustrator of Billy Boy. “I’m excited to finally finish these stories that I started years ago.”
Billy Boy Comics #1, 2 and 3 is a collection of dark and disturbing tales of a disillusioned kid who sees visions and monsters. Done in a style of classic cartoons from the Fleischer and Warner Brothers studios, Billy Boy is rendered in a very cinematic and ‘rubber hose-like’ style. These issues include: “Slingshot Madness,” has Billy get into some trouble when he and Teddy shoot up Old Mrs. Pine’s house with their brand new wrist rocket. In “Swamp Jitters,” Billy is on the run from a giant spindly insect. Also, in “Bad Charm Bill,” our pudgy star gets caught up in the black arts… and it doesn’t end with a smile!
Rewards include signed comics, original art pages, original commissions by Frank Forte, Art prints and more. Stretch Goals and add-ons will also be announced throughout the campaign.
“Bill Boy #3 has been started and I’ll be posting my art progress in the updates section of the Kickstarter as I complete the pages. All the art from issue #3 will be available as rewards,” explains Frank.
