"This series is so good, and essential reading for all metalheads". - Chris Dailey (Geek Network)

When Black Sabbath (not the Beatles) became the world’s most famous band, the universe was changed, musically and otherwise. Lost arts, like Alchemy, were made common, schools taught about transfiguration and alternate science, Demons were summoned and some stuck around.

Lana LOVES music. She has played in bands all through high school and now, in college, she still plays in her ex’s fledgling metal band. She’s convinced their drummer to play her indie songs in secret. She's finishing up the best practice yet when they are drawn into a spiritual battle to keep metal on the top of the charts.

The first miniseries was a wild ride of Daywolves, Metal Cults and hybrid creatures.

The new 3-issue mini-series has Lana and the crew taking the next step in their music journey as they head to The Silver Mountain to record their first album. Their private recording session isn't so private when chacters new and old start trying to get in on the tracks.

22 Stunning Black and White interiors story pages, plus extras- Standard American size book, Full Color Covers.

You may ask: can I jump in here mid-story? Absolutely! You may enjoy the world we are building by reading Vol 1, but we are making these series new reader friendly.

BUT that's not all!

Leaping out of the pages of series 1, it's fan favorite Argile the Arachnigator!! Argile was co-created by Dan, Jon and Jon’s daughter (8 y/o at the time) and he has been a fan-favorite since the first page.

Measuring 17 inches teeth to tail we have received the prototype of our hybrid stuffed character. They are soft and not-so-scary with plastic eyes. We are ready to go to limited production, we just need your help to get them made. This cuddly hybrid is ready to go on the road with you!


Dan and Jon are lifelong musicians and longtime comic creators, with dozens of years doing both. This is their 3rd year collaborating on Drumsticks of Doom and they are excited to bring more music-themed comics into the world.

Co-created by Dan Dougherty(Touching Evil) and Jon Westhoff(Part-Time Comix)

Art/Cover- Dan Dougherty (cover colors Wesley Wong), Script/Letters- Jon Westhoff

Additional Art- Ryan Vella (Killerroo, Bulletproof Chicken)

Pin-up- Em (@EmmaBIllu)

Variant Cover- Dave Chisholm (Miles Davis and the Search for the Sound)

Expected delivery: The Book- August 2024. The Plush- September 2024.

As of launch, we are about 50% done with the book. Dan and Ryan have inked most pages and the rest may even be done by campaign close. The plush is designed and approved, but can take a little extra time to produce and ship, so we appreciate the extra patience. All items will ship together.

Jon has never failed to deliver a campaign in 15 years and over 20 crowdfunding campaigns. The only risk is printer and production slow down and shipping, but we are prepared to navigate. We do not anticipate any issues.

Frequently asked questions

Yes! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.

Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS

Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at hello@wearezoop.com and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.


Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

Please use the notes section in the last checkout step or you could e-mail us at hello@wearezoop.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.

If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.

Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.

Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.

No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!  And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
