Boo & Hiss has been a passion project of mine for a couple of years. I was intrigued with the idea of what would happen in a classic cartoon predator/prey relationship if the predator, in this case a cat, got to finally do in his adversary only to have the mouse return as a ghost and bedevil the cat," explained Dini. "That sparked a bigger story about the afterlife, involving angels, devils, zombies, and just about everything else I could work in."

The duo are currently fundraising for the OGN on Kickstarter with a November 23 deadline.

“With the market for original humor comics shrinking, a Kickstarter campaign seemed like the best way of getting the book directly to the fans," said the writer. "I've had so much fun dreaming up the characters and watching David Alvarez bring them to life. Dave is the perfect artist to illustrate a story that has some horror and some heartbreak, but is basically a lot of fun. We're also lucky to have Stephanie Buscema on board to do some covers and contribute a few gruesomely gorgeous designs.”
