Something EVIL is rolling this way. Blood & Gourd #3 is on Kickstarter!

Fans awaiting Blood & Gourd can back the third issue now on Kickstarter. Scheduled for a May 2018, the third issue is wilder! Gorier! Scarier! Created/Written by Jenz K. Lund, with art by Jonas Scharf, and colors by Fran Gamboa, the campaign runs through November 23rd, covering both of the major pumpkin holidays! There’s a variety of rewards available, and an Early Bird incentive running through Halloween.

Blood & Gourd #3: Children of the Vine, rolls right back into the Cucurbita chaos! A handful of survivors, including Kitty and Mason, find temporary respite in the corn maze, but will they find a way out before The Gourdfather and his minions make pumpkin gelato out of their brains? Calvin and Vern make a gruesome discovery, little Sasha finds what’s lurking in the greenhouse basement, and Mister Pleasant demonstrates how evil can choke the roots of any family tree.

It’s Devil’s Night in Olympia, WA – and out at Henderson Farms, the festivities are reaching a crescendo. Young and old have gathered to pick their own pumpkin, drink hot apple cider, and partake in the usual pumpkin farm fare. However, something has awakened from deep within the fertile soil. After years of abuse and humiliation, the pumpkins are ready…to pick US! You can beg! You can plead! You can scream! But these hell’s lanterns are lit only with a burning desire to: Watch. You. Die!

Dead Peasant is a 100% artist owned and operated indie publisher. Through crowd-funding and sheer determination, its team has successfully conjured up a bizarre, offbeat, and exciting comic book series. Blood & Gourd is like EC Comics meets classic cult horror in 2017!

Additional contributors to Issue #3 and/or the Kickstarter rewards include: Rocio Canteros (Zenescope), Nick Gucker (Nick the Hat), Roberta Ingranata (Image, Top Cow), John Macleod (Cömic Räwk, Strange Kids Club), Phil Postma (Minion Factory, Strange Kids Club), JC Ruiz (Zenescope), and Greg Smith (Oni Press).
