Written by David F. Walker and drawn by an incredible line-up of talented artists that includes Steve Willhite and DJ Parnell, IMPOSTER SYNDROME runs the gamut from comedy to science fiction to urban action (and of course, zombies). Featuring all-new stories “Attack of the Depression Monster,” “Crash Landing,” and “Bully,” IMPOSTER SYBDROME is some of the best, most personal work from Walker. The collection also includes two old classics, “Black Santa’s Revenge” and "The Legend of Stagolee" (both presented in color for the very first time), sample scripts, behind-the-scenes process pages, insightful confessions, writing tips, and more. Reading IMPOSTER SYNDROME is the next best thing to hanging out with David F. Walker…only without having to listen to him talk too much.


“IMPOSTER SYNDROME is a cross between a cry for help and exorcism of the demons that haunt me.” – David F. Walker

Stretch Goals

The new short story is "How Will Eisner Changed My Life and Harlan Ellison Almost Got Me Arrested." This is a true story, and it will be drawn by my good friend Jim Hill (who was there when Will Eisner changed my life and Harlan Ellison almost got me arrested).
The set of trading cards are three limited edition trading cards featuring Reklaw the Ravager (see Update on 4/29 below for more details).


Four of the stories are completed. Two are fully drawn and are currently being colored.
