Here’s your chance to live out that all-American dream of being a gremlin in an adult coloring book.  

Visual artist Amy Kollar Anderson and horror and fantasy author Rob. E. Boley have combined forces on "That Naughty Pipe," a dark mashup of The Pied Piper of Hamlin and the classic '80s movie "Gremlins."

The opportunity to be drawn into the book as a gremlin comes at the $75 pledge level.

Is just one of the perks offered as part of the Dayton-based artists' Kickstarter campaign, which runs until May 20.

"It a dark fantasy, but there is comedy in it too," Anderson said. "Rob and I are pretty goofy, but so there is definitely humor in it too."

She and Boley, the Enon-raised writer behind the Scary Tale series, seek to raise $4,100 for the softcover 8.5" x 11" coloring book telling the scary tale of the Pied Piper and Gremlins.

Other perks include being drawn into the book as a villager strapped to the gremlins' windmill of doom for a $250 pledge.

You can get a PDF coloring book image for $5 or That Naughty Pipe colorable postcards with a personalized naughty limerick using your name from Boley for $7.  

The money will help cover shipping, printing and other expenses for the first 1,000 copies of the book at a Dayton business.

A launch party for the project will be held 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 27 at Toxic Brew Company, 431 E. Fifth St., Dayton.

Anderson's art will be on display and Zombie Dogz food truck will sell gourmet hot dogs.

Anderson said it is fitting that Zombie Dogz will be there, since zombie rats are featured in the coloring book.

She said the story makes it more than just another adult coloring book.

"We think it will be a fun way for people to be creative instead of just having pretty images," she said. "This will be an adventure and have a dark undertone."
