With a Brand New Story Taking Place That Same Fateful Night in 1968! Night of the Living Dead: Kin is a new Official Story Chapter!
When we reach $7500 on this campaign all of our physical pledge backers will receive a special limited edition promotional trading card featuring the art of Sammy Gomez!
The horror world changed in 1968 when George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD debuted. Romero's vision shocked audiences with its gripping story and social commentary. This landmark film changed the way horror movies were made forever and began the rise of the ghoul for future generations.
American Mythology is proud to work with Image Ten (the studio which represents the actors from this classic film) to produce a one-of-a-kind official comic book project that is part prequel and shines a light on some scenes from the film and continues the groundbreaking story. This is NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: KIN!
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is a vital part of our shared horror history. It was our biggest priority that we find a way to honor that vision and bring something very special to comic book readers everywhere. To accomplish that we sought out the perfect group of creators - people who are hardcore NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD fans and who have put their love of the original movie into this new comic book. The fine folks at Image Ten were a huge help in making sure every detail of the series was accurate to the original film and that we made this comic book perfect for all the fans. Every detail has been painstakingly crafted down to the feel, texture, and color treatments. This comic book will make you feel like you are watching the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD again for the first time. But don't take my word for it...check it out yourself below!
This is the big one! An incredible original art cover limited edition of Night of the Living Dead Kin #1 by the one and only Dan Parsons! You may recognize Dan's name from his work on Star Wars and his 30 years as an illustartor in the comic book field. This book is limited to a tiny 250 copy print run and will be IMPOSSIBLE to find anywhere but here in your collection!
Everyone loves an awesome collector's edition. We answer the call with a one-of-a-kind limited edition Holofoil comic book! This special edition is serial numbered 1-99 on the front cover, so you know exactly which copy you have from the run. The holofoil cover is beautifully reflective, and the details of the Homage Collage cover jump out at you like a ghoul attacking from the shadows. This is one of those books that will be the gem you pull out of your collection to show your friends. They will be IMPOSSIBLE to find outside of this project. Add something really unique to your collection today!

Dig up something cool to show your friends with these commissioned cover art comics!
Did you miss Night of the Living Dead: Revenance? The prequel series was a fast sell out at most local comic shops but we still have select copies available as add-ons here on this campaign. Pick up the four issue series, collector covers, or digital editions while you still can!
We will have stretch goals! Stay tuned for announcements of the goals and rewards coming your way soon!
You can't make a comic book for $2500...but you can use it to barricade yourself in a house while the walking dead try to bust in and eat you. The NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: KIN comic book series is being published and this project is just a way to share the fun with everyone. We have something for everyone here with this comic book series. Just want to read it? We've got digital levels. Want a copy of the main comic shop cover? You got it! Or...if you are a real Night of the Living Dead collector who loves the rarest items in your collection, the special editions of issue #1 are for you! Check out all the different options and feel free to ask if there's something you want but don't see.
Tired of Kickstarter that take your money and then don't fill for months? Not this time, friend! We're sending this to press NOW! So the copies will ship to you starting in by the end of October in time for Halloween! Items like autographs and original art sketches will need extra time as they are handled by third party groups. But standard and exclusive copies will be in your hands ASAP! And we will send the digital copies as soon as the project ends!
Nobody wants to receive their comics dinged up or damaged. We're shipping everything we can in Gemini mailers! If we can't use them (because of an oversized purchase) - we will make sure we ship your products bubble wrapped and safely packed into larger boxes. Bottom line is that we want you to get a perfect book and enjoy adding it to your collection!

We're working very hard to make comics that fans love. The market is very tough and comic book retailers face difficult decisions every month about what they can support. We are doing everything we can to make special comics that readers will enjoy. The challenges of small press publishing are extremely difficult. And discoverability is one of the biggest ones.We're doing everything we can to deliver the books on time. Things can always happen and if they do we will keep you updated so you know what when where and how we are doing. Thank you for supporting small press comic book publishing!
