Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to check out Hellbound Media’s latest offering, Mandy the Monster Hunter: Legend of the Spindly Man #1. And now, we’re pleased to report that the Kickstarter campaign is now underway for the second issue of this spellbinding tale.
In reviewing the first issue of Legend of the Spindly Man, we gave it an impressive 9/10 rating, stating, “Mandy herself is a fearless, fierce champion of the world’s youth, and just as fearless and fierce is the bold decision from Matt Warner and Mark Adams to deliver such a truly terrifying villain that genuinely has you questioning how Mandy can topple her latest foe as this miniseries progresses.”
To say we were wowed by this latest Hellbound Media effort is quite the understatement, which is why it's great news to see that issue #2 of this story is on the way.
The official word from Hellbound on this latest campaign reads:
We successfully funded the first issue of “The Legend of the Spindly Man” on Kickstarter at the start of the year, and now we're offering the same opportunity for you to pre-order and be among the first to get hold of “Chapter Two”. New to “Mandy the Monster Hunter”? No worries, as you can pick up the first issue as well as part of this Kickstarter campaign, and join Mandy on her mission to defeat the Spindly Man... if she can!
The art work is 100% completed, the book is being lettered and the printer is ready and waiting to go ahead. The book is happening, but at a cost. We want to bring the entire series out within a year and it is only with your help that we can make this viable. Pre-ordering your book gets you numerous rewards and guarantees you as one of the first to grab a copy as they will be sent out the moment the campaign ends and your surveys are returned to us. You also get our eternal thanks for helping support indie comics. So if you love monsters, scary stories, comics, jump into the world of “Mandy the Monster Hunter” and support our kickstarter!
To give you an insight on the plot of Legend of the Spindly Man, the synopsis for the tale can be found below:
The story of the Spindly Man has been uncovered. He has come to take the children away. One by one, he abducts his victims, and a town mourns. Mandy the Monster Hunter is their best hope for salvation. Her name is whispered on the playground, a legend among the children of the world. Whatever creature troubles you, when the adults won't listen, it is Mandy that can help you out. All you need to do is draw a picture of the beast, and it will reach her.
She's the thing that the things in the dark are afraid of...
Because The Spindly Man is something even Mandy has not faced before. Her first encounter has already led to one death, and Mandy herself nearly fell victim to the entity.
Mandy was the children's last hope... ...but what if even she cannot stop the spread of his curse...?
