“With the heightened understanding of our environment that we have today, it’s obvious that sharks are more victim to man than the other way around,” says Gaska. “The time seemed right for a shark horror/thriller adventure that would take their side of the conflict.”
Here’s the skinny on Frenzy and the groups of artists contributing to Gaska’s story primordial tale set in the Atlantic.
A new Kickstarter project has been launched for the duration of August. Frenzy is an original illustrated prose novel written by Andrew E.C. Gaska (*Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes, Critical Millennium, SPACE: 1999 Aftershock & Awe, Classic SPACE:1999- To Everything That Was). Frenzy is about a pack of sharks that turn deadly when people stumble upon them and interfere with their habitat. Make no mistake, the sharks are the stars of this book, and the humans are the threat!
The book will feature art by the likes of Dave Dorman (Aliens: Tribes, Star Wars: Dark Empire), Bob Eggleton (Godzilla, Magic: The Gathering), menton3 (Monocyte, LUST, TOME) Erik Gist (Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes, Magic: The Gathering), Steve White (Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Dinosaurs: A Celebration) Chandra Free (The God Machine, Fraggle Rock, Graphic Cannon Vol. 3, Mice Templar) and more!
The Kickstarter has incentives ranging from digital copies of the book, special artist packages that contain original art (sketches and paintings), having your likeness painted into one of the book¹s featured illustrations and even shark diving with the author himself.
