Turner Family Terrors 1-3: The Suburban Slayers Are Back!

Created by Robert Krisch

A new comic starring monster-slaying, foul-mouthed, bumbling adventurers The Turner Family! Think The Simpsons meets Hellboy.

Hey there-

Here's a small bit of news:

We got funded!!!

How about them apples. Wow. Just floored.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting Turner Family Terrors and our entire TFT Team. We can't do any of this creative stuff without the enthusiasm and love from our backers and the Kickstarter community. So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Oh, and you're getting some more free shit!

I unlocked a super secret surprise 10 spot of digital indie comics as our Friday the 13th Milestone bonus. And all our previous backers and new supporters will cash in on the goods (expires next Friday). You'll receive all those amazing books in one tidy little folder at the end of the campaign. Here's the little graphic I added to the page earlier today:

I'm off to the ball field now to coach my son's little league playoff game, but after that,  I'm chatting with Kevin Joseph and Will Allred on their show Explain Yourself, at 8pm PST.

Here's the link:

See you there!

Much Love.

Hey there-

I just got back from my son's baseball game. They won in the last inning on a super sneaky slide home by one of our craftiest little players. Guess who's job it was to teach the boys sliding this year? Assistant Coach Rob. That's me. So I am one happy camper - about the game and about this here Kickstarter! We're currently sitting at 54+ backers and 79% funded after 36 hours. 

Hey, let's fund this thing tomorrow. Why the hell not!

One of the fun things about running a Kickstarter is I get to pimp the amazing work of my fellow creators. Artists that I'm a fan of and love championing their work. Every now and then the stars align and my friends just happen to be launching Kickstarters... the same month... the same day, as myself.  Let me introduce you to Matta Sorcier. 

Matta is a super talented self taught artist based out of New York (my old stomping ground) and her comic is titled Sacrimony.  Live on Kickstarter! And she's generously shared a copy of Issue #1 with my backers. Sweet. (Check out our super secret follow up update -Backers Only- to snag your exclusive copy.)

Here's some info from here Page:

Sacrimony: A Tale of Love, Life and Death - In No Particular Order #4  is a 31 page standard sized full color comic and contains beautiful art, a diverse cast of fully fleshed-out characters and a colorful, unique fantasy world.

Sacrimony isn't your typical fantasy story set in Ye Olde Medieval Europe with wizards, elves, dwarves and orcs waging epic wars or reluctantly banding together to go on a quest to do a thing. It's not a story of action, adventure or saving the world, but a story of how characters end up coping and surviving against whatever life throws at them.

It's the kind of story you read because you get invested in the characters and not because you want to see a 'bad guy' get defeated.

Kind of like Saga, but not in space, and the parents hate each other.

I've put many years into building a fantasy world that feels fresh and original. Sacrimony features unusual races with their own customs and interesting locations boasting their own distinct style of architecture and extensive history. So if you're looking for a story with lots of lore to dive into such as Game of Thrones or the Avatar series, Sacrimony is definitely up your alley.


And act now as her cute as hell free sticker is going fast as an Early Bird.

I'll post the follow up Kickstarter Update (Backers Only Access) where you can read Issue #1.  Then go back the rest of  Sacrimony, exclusively on Kickstarter!

Good night all. I'm feeling tomorrow will be a good day.


Best Day One Ever. And Your Surprise Bonus is Here... Courtesy of David Schrader

Hey there-

It's official - Best day one ever! We smashed our day one backer total, we're sitting at 62% funded, and we made Kicktraq's Hotlist. Sweet. Thank you so much for not being tardy to the party and coming out on Day one. I told you I had a super sweet surprise bonus for all you early arrivers. And here it is - Baby BadAss Vol.1 by David Schrader, creator of Cannibals on Mars, currently Live on Kickstarter. Check your inbox for a private message from me with the link.

A few years back I met Dave at a Free Comic Book Day event. I snagged issue #1 of Baby Badass and told him I was psyched, my five year old son was going to love it! He shook his head and said, "Oh no man, not for kids."

Flash forward five years and one pandemic. Dave just read the first 3 issues of my inappropriate, over the top comic Turner Family Terrors and, what do you know, he actually liked it. Here's a little quote he offered up:

"Delightfully demented. Smart, silly, and subversive satire, Turner Family Terrors is a profane joyride filled with monsters, aliens, over the top action, and all manner of family mayhem. A witty and wild romp, TFT delivers the comic goods."

Thanks so much, Dave, for the love!

Quite frankly when I asked him for an issue of Baby Badass for my fans I thought I was getting a 22 page floppy, but instead he sent the entire 106 page Volume One. Hellz yeah!  I hope you enjoy this (For Mature Audience) grindhouse bloody little treat.

David's latest project looks just as awesome! Cannibals on Mars.   LIVE ON KICKSTARTER!

Now on Kickstarter!

From his Kickstarter Page:

CANNIBALS ON MARS is a 48 page, perfect-bound, one-shot that delivers blood-soaked space horror that comic fans can really sink their teeth into.

Ever since the ancients fixed their gaze skyward, human beings have marveled at the planets stretched before them. Heretics, heroes, science, and sacrifice all advanced our understanding of the stars, until finally, in 2027, earthlings established the first functioning colony on another planet.

The RH7 Colonies on Mars: a terraforming series of interconnected outposts inhabited by a bold set of international astronauts, scientists, engineers, and psychologists. Their mission was twofold: to develop a sustainable environment for eventual, large-scale migration and to prove that human beings--despite their differences, could work together to create a fledgling new society built on trust, camaraderie, and the common good.

Then all communication from earth was cut off.

The colonists continued their mission.

They thrived. They survived.

They lived, loved, and lost.

Five years passed.

And now here we are…



Dave's currently sitting at 199 backers... help him cross that coveted 200 threshold!

On to day two!


Welcome. Incredible Start. It's getting hot in here.

Hey Guys-


On behalf of the entire TFT Team I want to thank you for all the support and love you've shown our little comic here on Day 1!  We're currently sitting at 53% funded and counting. Amazing. 

The fine people over at Kicktraq even threw us on their Hot list. I'm not exactly sure what that means, but I know one thing, it's Hot! And I'm embracing the heat.

A couple of my buddies also made the list - Clay Adams and Matta Sorcier with Sacrimony and PBOW. You're gonna hear a lot more about those two in future updates.

I'm gonna keep this brief as I'm exhausted from a whirlwind day. But I wanted to let you know over the course of this campaign I'll be sending out updates offering up fun Kickstarter exclusives to make this party as rockin' as possible. I mentioned in my last newsletter that all my day one backers will get a super secret surprise bonus in their inbox the following day. Well it arrives tomorrow. I'm not telling now, but let's just say it's Bad Ass, and there might be a Baby involved. 

Thank you so much for joining me on this creative journey!

Much Love.
