Summer of Monsters #5

Fear & Sunshine: Prelude

Are you ready for some monster fun this summer? Each week, we’ll be featuring some of my stories of monsters, mad science, and mischief so you can catch up!

For generations, the Darksmith family has constructed, concocted, or otherwise created the minions of the world’s most wicked foes. Be they armies of undead warriors or hordes of the most vicious beasts, they all know Darksmith Manor as their birthplace. But one creature, born by the sum of all fears, wanted more than to serve any master.

After declaring himself as the rightful heir as the maker of monsters, the creature known as Fear soon found that the Duke & Duchess of Darksmith Manor were about to have their first child.

If you think Weird is part of a complete breakfast, I hope you’ve brought your appetite!

Breakfast Doodles are the daily drawings of Donovan Scherer. Created as a reason to get out of bed and make some art before heading off to the day job, this morning routine has quickly become a horrible addiction of our dear artist, leading to strange creatures and cats with workplace depression. Join him as reality spirals out of control in this first collection of artwork and stories.

Summer of Monsters #1

Are you ready for some monster fun this summer? Each week, we’ll be featuring some of my stories of monsters, mad science, and mischief so you can catch up!

If you like Are You Afraid of the Dark or Goosebumps,
here’s Monsters Around the Campfire

Even on a hot summer night, there can be chills around a campfire. For Ollie Carothers and his fellow campers, the goal was simple – have the best time ever.

In the glow of the fire, stories are told, one camper to another. But are they just stories? What snapped the branch? Is that just a shadow? What lurks under the surface of the swimming hole?

Could it really be …
Monsters?

Walker Stalker Chicago 2018

Walker Stalker Chicago is back!

If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, Fox’s Gotham, Netflix’s Marvel shows, or CW’s Arrow (and a whole lot more), this is the place to be to meet a bunch of the people from the show. And aside from all the celebrity stalking you’ll get to do there, Walker Stalker is one of the best shows in the area to stock up on all sorts of great horror memorabilia. Like ZomBeans!

If you need a taste of horror before Walker Stalker, pick up your free copy of Fear & Sunshine: Prelude here. Then, when you go get some autographs, you can tell your favorite celebrity which character in my books they should play when we start making movies.

The show will be at Donald E. Stevens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL on April 7th and 8th. You can find a whole lot more details here.

Hibernation is Almost Over

Time to shake off the cobwebs and get ready to hit the road. Fear & Sunshine is back on the world tour starting February 24th with Mighty Con Milwaukee. If you want a sneak peek at some of the upcoming shows, have a looksy here – https://donovanscherer.com/calendar

And if you need to stretch out your finger bones, here’s a big, free bundle of Fear & Sunshine coloring pages that you can print up.

Now for some quick updates for the new year!

The next Fear & Sunshine book is still in the works. The whole story is all worked out (and it’s awesome), so now we’re ironing out some details, making sure the Madness all makes sense, and will hopefully be running full speed on the main draft sooner than later.

ZomBeans! We’ve got a fresh batch of plushies on their way as I type this but I’m talking about the game. With a recent update to Apple device software, people can no longer get the ZomBeans app on their phones or tablets. Android devices are okay… for now.

So, my choices are either to take the game completely off the iTunes store or try to fix it up.

Of course, I’m going to try and fix it up because I never want to see the end of my to-do list. Unfortunately, the code for the game is soooo outdated that it’s going to need a full rebuild in a different type of program. Time to learn Unity!

And the third order of business is something you’ve either been waiting on for way too long or you’ve never even heard of it. Creature of the Week!

The greatest battles between make-believe weirdos that has ever existed should be returning on March 10th. If you want to get involved in deciding who’s the coolest ghoul or the ghost-est with the most-est, elections will be tallied up on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Use those links to follow me and keep an eye on things.

The winners of these super-vital-to-the-world elections will get t-shirts made. Yeah, if you haven’t seen it, Studio Moonfall has t-shirts. Go get ‘em!

See you soon!
