Sunday Shoutout — Funhouse of Frights (Vol 2) Kickstarter!

Funhouse of Frights by Tyler Mann

We’re back with another weekend shout-out!

Today we’re highlighting Funhouse of Frights Vol 2: Come Again by Tyler Mann.

Funhouse Of Frights is a gay, kinky, fun house themed erotic comic series. Inside this fictional Funhouse, the rooms magically fill up with the sexual desires of the guests who enter it. Furry clown creatures, a towering Anubis, plant monsters, rubbery perils, and tons more await ticket holders who venture in!

These comics are NSFW, so they might not be up everyone’s alley (also: clowns!), but the first volume was well received by his fans and this second volume has already funded—so you know that you’re going to get something for jumping on board!

Better be quick, though, since the Kickstarter ends on June 15th.

Catch you next week for another shoutout!
