Combining his love for horror with a pretty scary event from his own past, writer Jason McNamara (The Martian Confederacy, First Moon, Continuity) has teamed with artist Greg Hinkle (the upcoming Airboy) to tell the story of The Rattler. A campaign to bring their self-published graphic novel to the printed page began this morning on Kickstarter.
According to The Rattler Kickstarter page, “10 years have passed since Stephen Thorn’s fiancée vanished without a trace, and he has grown into a prominent, if bitter, victim’s rights crusader. Despite the cold trail and lack of leads, he stubbornly refuses to give up the search. And then … he begins to hear her voice in the strangest of places.”
I spoke with both McNamara and Hinkle about the project, their favorite horror comics and what “dinner” at the MacNamara house (one of the Kickstarter prizes) consists of (here’s a hint).
