The List 2: Seeds for Eden Kickstarter (by Paul Bedford)

Dog with a Bone Studios are proud to announce The List 2: Seeds for Eden Book 1: Agape, a sequel to their critically acclaimed psych-horror graphic novel, The List: The New Commandments.

The end of The List 1 was intentionally ambiguous; I wanted the reader to make come to their own conclusions as opposed to being fed a pat ending. But I was forever being prompted back into contemplating a sequel by readers. They wanted to know more. They wanted to know the three W’s of The List 1. Why was that family chosen? Who was the angel? What happened after the end?

It took until last year, three years after The List 1 was released and many more after I’d finished the script, for the idea behind The List 2 to come to me. But, once it did, I could no longer resist it… and then I was hit by the awful realisation: I’d have to write the bloody thing! Ha!

So now, here we are. Book 1 of The List 2 is near release. And, after all, I’m very glad I went ahead with it (not so sure The List’s artists are… Poor Henry and Tom. I really do put them through the ringer). The List 2, while maybe not answering all the questions I was posed (it’s always best to maintain some mystery), certainly opens up the scope of the story in a big way, with stunning events and revealing the Angel’s masterplan, which will be sure to shock readers (it certainly shocked me when I came up with it).

If psych-horror is your thing – and we have it in spades – please consider backing the Kickstarter. For $5 you get a PDF copy of The List 2: Book 1, while $10 will see a print copy sent straight to your door.

Praise for The List: The New Commandments
“… (The List) is so much more than a simple hack and slash fest featuring gore just for the sake of gore… kept me glued to this book all the way through to its unexpected revelation…” (US)

“Bedford, Pop and Bonin deliver a masterpiece.” (Aust.)

“The finale to The List was as harrowing a read as I expected from the set-up… Days later I’m still digesting the symbolism of its emotionally-charged ending.” (UK)

“Immerse yourself into this twisted world, take that leap and do something unique. (The List) has stuck with me like a scar and trust me that is a good thing. ” (US)

“Bedford controls the story and the reader’s access to it masterfully. If The List was a movie, you couldn’t be blamed for thinking that Polanski, Kubrick or maybe even Scorsese had a hand in things.” Gary Chaloner (Will Eisner’s John Law; Morton Stone: Undertaker with Ben Templesmith)
