KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'Little Girl' Collection By Pat Shand and Olivia Pelaez

A terrifying, emotional powerhouse horror story about a haunting... told from the ghost's POV. Collects the hit comic series!




Pat Shand: I'm back with my 11th Kickstarter, and this time, I'm teaming up with artist OLIVIA PELAEZ and publisher DEVIL'S DUE COMICS to bring you the graphic novel collection of our horror comic, LITTLE GIRL. We previously published it as a series of four single issues, and now we are here to raise the funds to print it as a paperback! It totals out to 88 pages of full-color comics, and it's ready to be printed!

We can only make this book happen here, with you!


When a cursed stuffed penguin is given to an unknowing victim, the spirit of Abby May, a vengeful little dead girl, lashes out blindly at the living. However, as Abby’s bloodlust leads her back to those responsible for her death, she begins to piece together the truth about how she died and how she lived.

This is also a personal tale for both me and Olivia. I've always been terrified of ghosts since childhood -- and that fear was tripled when the ghost in question was a child. From The Ring to The Grudge to all manner of horror movies, I found myself so terrified by the idea of small, cold hands grasping at my throat... that I knew I had to explore that fear with a story.


This campaign also offers by far the most stunning original art I've ever been able to offer. I didn't even know this until recently because in my 8 years of working in comics with over 300 issues published... I have never seen an artist do this. Olivia traditionally drew AND colored the covers, and wants to offer them to you, our readers, through the Kickstarter!


The comic is completely DONE. It's written, drawn, colored by FRAN GAMBOA & JC RUIZ, and lettered by JIM CAMPBELL. We are ready to print it! Our delivery date is set in October just to protect ourselves if we have a printer or customs delay, but we fully expect to beat our delivery date by FAR. 

This will also be shipping to comic shops by Devil's Due if we get funded, but all of the other rewards here are exclusive to THIS campaign.

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J.

Maybe he wasn't so bad after all.
