Over at paperkeg.com, Jon Stump, who read the 11-page ashcan mini-comic of Sparrow & Crowe, gives a nice little write-up and mini-review:
It was a quick and fun read. It’s also right up my alley being a crime/mystery/occult style book. I seriously eat these kinds of things up. This is why I am sharing this with you, because I would love to see this book be published.
You can read the full write-up here.
We’ve got some new Rewards we’ve added to the site since our Kickstarter launch, and we wanted to share them with you.
First, on our Facebook page, it’s been noted that some of our diehard Wormwood fans are clamoring for more Wormwood Memorabilia! To that end, we’ve added a few rewards aimed at our longtime audio show fans!
Update #1 – we added an ALTERNATE $25 reward that’s our Audio Fan Reward. With this pledge, rather than receiving a script of the first issue of the comic book, you’ll receive a script of the FIRST EPISODE OF WORMWOOD (“The Coming Storm”) signed by Dave Accampo, Jeremy Rogers, and Rob “Sheriff Bradley” Grindlinger!
Update #2 – as of this writing, we’ve added a VERY RARE Collector’s set to the Kickstarter campaign! This set include rare promotional materials from the past few years of Wormwood:
- A Wormwood: Crossroads promotional postcard
- A Wormwood: Revelation promotional postcard (with EXCLUSIVE Xander Crowe Flash Fiction STORY printed on back! Only printed on these cards!)
- A 5×5 16-page sampler book for Wormwood & the Five Fingers of Glory – a rare print edition that showcases a few of the Five Fingers stories.
- The Sparrow & Crowe ashcan mini-comic — ultra rare with a cover that won’t be used in the final book! This is the pitch book we used to land our publisher, so this comic contains additional insights into the “Demoniac” story arc. Only 75 of these books were printed, so these are extremely rare — a must-have for the Wormwood completist.
Only 20 of these very rare sets are available! We’ve dipped deep into our reserves to pull these pieces together for you!
We hope these added rewards help to bring some of our many fans out to help support the book! We really want to bring you this next chapter for Sparrow & Crowe (the prequel you’ve been waiting for!), but we still need your support!
Crime writer, blogger, and podcaster Jay Stringer blogged about our Sparrow & Crowe project on the Do Some Damage blog, a site dedicated to crime fiction by writers of crime fiction. Jay says:
I could write about why it’s a good project to help out, or what the story is about, but they’ve already done it.

Paul Montgomery, friend and writer on Wormwood: A Serialized Mystery showed some wonderful support for our project on iFanboy.com yesterday. Paul says:
This year, Dave, Jeremy and artist Jared Souza secured a deal with Hermes Press to produce a new storyline as a comic mini-series. I’m biased, but I love these characters and I love the prospects for “The Demoniac of Los Angeles.” I’ve already read the first issue and it’s a great concept terrifically executed.
Paul goes on to talk about David Accampo’s role in the iFanboy community and to ask for support. Check out Paul’s piece in full here.
