Okay, I got a PM from Jon over on Facebook this morning. He's starting a new metal fairy tales project that he wants the fans to help via Kickstarter. It seems right up Dethklok's alley. I can see Toki, and maybe Nathan, getting into it.!
Anyway, here's Jon:
I wanted to give you a heads up about a project I'm launching with titmouse and zenescope entertainment tomorrow. I'm going to be directing an animated anthology series adaptation of the Grimm Fairy Tales comic books. I'm going to make it like the heavy metal movie, with tons of different animation styles for each Grimm story, totally badass, gore filled, and sexy as hell, The best part is we are going to raise the money to make it through people who would want to see it, so we are funding it via the kickstarter program. Can you help spread the word to all your deviant art friends, as well as post about it on the dethklok boards. It would mean a lot to me, since I know fans of Metalocalypse will appreciate what I'm trying to do, and possibly help.
Below is the link to the kickstarter page.

Upate!! From Jon:
With two weeks left on our Kickstarter, so we are rolling out the final pledge incentives, and two of them are made for fans of my work on "Metalocalypse".
The first one is a limited hand drawn piece of art from me of Murderface, the very first dethklok character design that I created. I am going to do 150 custom drawing for 150 people who pledge $175. They also get everything included in the Grimm Bagg!
The major pledge incentive is the $98 Grimm Bagg. It has a little bit of everything, and the retail is less than what you would spend to buy these all together. This is the one that I hope as many Metalocalypse and Dethklok Fans will pledge to. It has the Blu-ray combo pack of the Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Series SIGNED Movie poster of the Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Series Titmouse coloring book The Art book of the Animated Series Kickstarter Exclusive of Grimm Fairy Tales Volume 1 SIGNED Limited Edition Trading card 8x10 Glossy of Dethklok SIGNED by Director Jon Schnepp
If we can get 1000 fans of my directing work and of Metalocalypse and Dethklok to pledge $98 this week, we will be able to make this amazing pilot, and layout the groundwork for the series and movie. Here is the link to pledge and watch all the videos:
