"If you aren’t lucky enough to already know the manic and vital work of Marco Fontanili from his fantastic Kingjira, then his latest effort, MurderFucker, will hit you like a vodka Red Bull cocktail with a little LSD tossed in. A beautiful, twisted journey through a world of violent themes and contrasts, MurderFucker lives up to its name; a high energy comic that doesn’t give up until the end. Bold, in-your-face, and unapologetic, it’s everything I’ve come to expect from this brilliant young talent."

A metalhead guy buys the latest cassette tape of the legendary band "MURDERFUCKER." Once he presses the "play" button, however, something bizarre happens.
Our protagonist has a very special ability - he lives the music he listens to in a much deeper and visceral way than the masses. In fact, according to the musical genre that he absorbs through his earphones, he is able to transform himself into various monstrous creatures, each of them endowed with special powers and characteristics. MurderFucker is the first of these transformations. Derived from Death Metal, this entity possesses a superhuman strength, combat skills beyond all human understanding and a rather particular "hunger".
Thus begins a crazy adventure of hyper-muscle, toxic masculinity, mutant zombies and destruction. What better to ask for?
For fans of: Cannibal Corpse, Peter Jackson's "Braindead", Fist of the North Star, Army of Darkness, Thrash/Death Metal
I always loved Metal music and Splatter movies.
Basically during these last 15 years I listened tons of Death/Thrash Metal albums and I watched hundreds of movies where guts and blood fly everywhere. This little project is the perfect mix between these two things, filtered with an "underground" artistic vision. I did my best to fill every page with details and to give an unique look to the whole project. And to be quite honest, I think the mission is more than accomplished.
I love this little book and I loved to create it. If you help me to make it a success, you can be sure that I will expand this universe with the craziest stuff possible.
My plan, in fact, is to create an entire world for "MurderFucker". A world full of guts, Metal and weird characters. Trust me, you will love it.
This is my very first attempt to crowdfunding. I always wanted to create a comic and publish it with a crowdfunding campaign, but because I live in Italy it's pretty hard to have a chance with the American audience from here. But in 2022 I started working pretty hard in the American comicbook industry thanks to Scout Comics and Black Caravan, so I thought that this could have been a good time to try this publishing system.
Having success with this project would help me to continue to create the best comics I can, without the limits of the traditional publishing. No censorship, no rules. Just the freedom to do crazy stuff for you (and me) to enjoy!
A ridiculously detailed commission by the super-talented Marco Fontanili could be all yours if you grab one from the Add-Ons section above! All you gotta do is support the book first in the Rewards section to unlock it :)
Here are some examples of his previous commissions:
My name is Marco Fontanili, I am 30 years old and I live in Reggio Emilia, a small town in Northern Italy.
I graduated in 2013 from the International School of Comics in Reggio Emilia, I have worked in the Italian comicbook industry (with publishers such as Shockdom, Passenger Press, etc.) and as an illustrator in the field of independent cinema (with production companies such as Necrostorm, L/D Production Company, etc.).
Since 2017 I have been curating my own self-publishing label.
I currently work as a writer and illustrator mainly in the American comics industry where, in the last year, I published as a complete author the one-shot Kingjira: Hungry like a Monster with Scout Comics and the miniseries Pentagram of Horror with Black Caravan. As an illustrator, on the other hand, I have done several covers.
I also created all the graphic elements for 101 Horror Books to Read before you're Murdered, a book/guide to the Horror genre that will be published by Page Street Publishing in mid-2023.
$6,000 - who wants a longer book? Marco will create a short story to add to the back of the book, expanding it to a 48-pager.
$8,000 - get a sneak peek of another project that takes place in the same universe
The book is complete. I will only need the time to do the commissions and the short story, if we reach the stretch goal.
We anticipate an early Fall '23 fulfillment after a successful campaign, and Zoop will provide updates and communicate any delays that may pop up.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.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!
