Welcome to… The DeMultiverse! 

Spellbound Comics is proud to open the portal into… THE DeMULTIVERSE.


The DeMultiverse consists of four all-new, all-different comic books written by legendary writer J.M. DeMatteis (Kraven’s Last Hunt, Justice League International, Moonshadow, and hundreds more). Each of the four initial DeMultiverse titles is completely different in tone and style, and each one is co-created by a different artist!



As an added bonus, all backers who purchase either a complete set of all four first issues OR The DeMultiverse Trade Paperback (or both, if you’re a true completist) will be contacted after the campaign to VOTE for which of the four you enjoyed the most! The title that receives the most votes will be the first to continue to a full series.


Think of these initial four DeMultiverse titles as pilot episodes of different TV shows and only ONE, based on your voting, will be greenlit to series (for now!). Spellbound’s next campaign will feature issues #2-5 of the winning series, based on YOUR choice!


Here are the four 22-page full-color titles eligible backers will be voting on!

Illustrated by Marvel Comics artist David BaldeónANYMAN is a contemporary superhero book with an unexpected twist. If you’ve enjoyed JM’s more mainstream superhero work on Spider-ManJustice League or Captain America, you were born to love ANYMAN!




Who is Godsend? A superhero? Alien? Celestial being? JM and artist Matthew Dow Smith will be providing answers to those questions and more in this cosmic mystery that JM himself describes as “Jack Kirby meets The Matrix meets Philip K. Dick.”




LAYLA IN THE LANDS OF AFTER is an all-ages fantasy adventure about the Afterlife, illustrated by the great Shawn (Sandman) McManus. From Moonshadow to Abadazad to Imaginalis, there is no greater writer of comic book fantasy than JM DeMatteis. LAYLA is his latest Can’t Miss in this genre.





Brought to visual life via the haunted pen of Tom Mandrake, with WISDOM, JM has crafted an exceptional supernatural tale of the Old West that is both a Western anthology and a fantasy epic. Deadwood meets The X-Files. John Ford meets Tolkien. Deeply personal and hugely epic.



All four titles will be available as single issues with a “COVER A” drawn by the series’ artist and a “COVER B” drawn by a special guest artist.  We’ll be unveiling the work of the guest cover artists throughout the campaign; expect to see some incredible images by fan favorite artists Dustin NguyenKevin Maguire and a mystery artist we can’t wait to reveal to the world. In the meantime, please welcome LAYLA IN THE LAND OF AFTER‘s guest cover artist…J.H. WILLIAMS III!

We will also be collecting all four titles in one 100+ page softcover trade called The DeMultiverse Collection. In addition to the four complete issue #1s, The DeMultiverse Collection will include J.M.-penned introductions to each title where he discusses the genesis of the idea, its behind-the-scenes history, and why he just had to tell this story. There will also be never-before-seen artistic goodies like character designs, unpublished sketches, script pages, and more! And finally, you’ll find a very special foreword on J.M.’s career and works by an absolute legend in the comic book industry, a person who knows J.M. as well as anyone: legendary writer and former Marvel Editor-In Chief TOM DEFALCO!


Oh, and did we mention that the trade will feature a cover by the incredible LIAM SHARP?
