I am so thrilled that you’re checking out the crowdfunding campaign for my creator owned series ENGRAVED! 
This comic is an over the top chromium age action comic about Calvin Chase who is cursed with a disease that is slowly turning him into a monster.
This ZOOP crowdfunding campaign is to fund the printing and shipping of volumes one and two collecting the first six issues of this series. 
Each volume is 32 black and white pages with full color covers in standard comic size.
I need your help to hit goal so that these books can be sent to you! Jump in the campaign in the first 48 hours and you will be entered to win an awesome piece of original art!
I’ve got a bunch of great stretch goals planned, the higher we go… the more you get! 
So please help us hit goal, and share this link http://www.zoop.gg/c/engraved with anyone that is a fan of X-Files,  Hellblazer, Hitman, The Darkness, or Preacher.

My name is Dylan Andrews. I am a comic-book artist, writer, designer, and independent publisher. I started reading comics when I was 5 years old, and I’ve always wanted to use my knowledge of art, design, and publishing to create my own comic books. I started Batlantic Studios to create a place where comics matter. I have done nine successfully funded Kickstarter campaigns for my comic-book series ARCHIVE: The WarHood Odyssey, The Oppressors, CYST: The Skin Grafter, and Versus. I am so happy to be part of Southern Maine’s vibrant community of comic-book creators. I love the over the top chromium-age ’90s comics from my youth. I want to bring back the excitement and energy I felt toward those comics, sharing that experience with a modern audience. Check out works in progress and get a peek behind the scenes at www.makecomicscool.com. Comics, art, and swag available at www.batlanticstore.com
