Kickstarter – Fear Hunters Volume 1: Nyctophobia

Fear Hunters Volume 1: Nyctophobia

Hey everyone wanted to give everyone a heads-up on a new Kickstarter comic book project from indie comic creator Anderson Carman. Fear Hunters Volume 1: Nyctophobia collects the first five issues of his original series. It launched February 1st and runs through the 29th of February. Personally, I am a big fan of Carman’s work. I ran into him three years ago in artist alley at Heroes Con and got a commission from him. I really dug his unique cartooning style and his wonderful character designs.

Now I have three commissions from Carman at this point. I also picked up the first two issues of Fear Hunters from him last year. I can say, from what I have read of Fear Hunters, it is a fun, unique little story. It has some interesting characters and Carman gets to let his imagination run wild with some phenomenal-looking creatures. It also helps that Carman is a cool dude and you can tell his heart is in this project.

Fear Hunters Kickstarter

I’m Anderson Carman, and I’m making Fear Hunters Volume 1: Nyctophobia. But I need your help to print it!

  •  Fear Hunters is a 10+ graphic novel inspired by my love of creatures and secret agencies. If you like Monsters, Buddy-Cop Serials, and Men in Black, then you’re going to love Fear Hunters.
  •  Fear Hunters will be Soft Cover, 6.625 inches x 10.25 inches, 125 comic pages, and ~25 bonus art pages featuring work from the following talented artists: Amanda Semler, Lex Miniel, Ugis, Alex Wisehart, Raeonda Ramoutar, Stephen Jones, and Jared Bogges.
  • The book is being written and drawn by me and is scheduled to be finished in March of 2020, and shipped out to backers by June of 2020.

I have been producing this project over the last year and a half and am very excited to collate the first story arc into a single volume.

The goal of this Kickstarter is to raise the funds for the printing of 100 copies of Fear Hunters.


I want to take a moment to share how the finances are being used.

  • Printing will be ~ $1200 depending on the final page count of the book.
  • Shipping all the rewards will be ~ $500. However, this number will change depending on how successful this campaign is and what rewards you, the patrons, choose.
  • Fees are 10% of my total, currently, $200 but, once again, that may shift if we surpass the goal.
  • Miscellaneous things will come up so I have built in a buffer of ~$100 but I am very hopeful that I will not need to cut into this too much.
