RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE is the first of a planned five-part horror/humor comic book series featuring the adventures of the two monstrous misfits before their association with their respective horror icons. Created by writer Dan Taylor and artist Gavin Spence, RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE begins a “buddy story” similar to that of Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello, told in the tradition of the great “road pictures” of Crosby & Hope.
RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE is currently seeking backers via Kickstarter to fund the production, publication, and promotion of the first issue of the RENFIELD AND IGOR comic book mini-series. The Kickstarter project pledge campaign scheduled deadline is Monday, December 19 at 11:59AM PST—so, time is of the essence.Renfield and Igor are two down-on-their-luck and unemployed ne’er do wells that live in Victorian London. They share a flat and both have a crush on “working girl” Ivy Pearson. They are in danger of losing their home for not paying rent when Renfield is approached by Dr. Jekyll to “run errands” to acquire ingredients for a new formula. Igor is approached by Mr. Hyde to run the same errands. Not being bright enough to figure that Jekyll and Hyde are one in the same, Renfield and Igor plot to go ahead and do the job for both men in order to be paid twice—and, their adventure begins.
RENFIELD AND IGOR MEET DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE will be a 32-page full color comic book written by Dan Taylor (Hero Happy Hour, Pirat Tales: Legend of the Cat O’ Nine Tails) with art by Glasgow-based illustrator Gavin Spence.
