I already re-blogged Iza’s post about it, but I wanted to let all of you know that we’ve begun the Kickstarter for “The Black Torch,” a comic anthology by the LAVAPunch crew, of which I have been a long time member of.
Check out the Kickstarter page! And check out the sample pages in this post~
I’ll also be one of the artists contributing to the commission level of the rewards.
What’s particularly special about The Black Torch is that its our first full color book! We also have a lot of new and returning members, many of whom are industry professionals that have worked both in the games and animation industry, including studios like Nickelodeon, Disney, and Pixar.
Also, a couple of members of the Skullgirls team, including myself, have contributed to the book.
Actually, I have been kinda awkwardly and silently hyping up my entry for the anthology on tumblr for the past month or so. Those pics of the bug girl and associated characters are related to the world that my comic takes place in.
Set in a stylized post apocalyptic future, the land has been torn apart by mysterious “Black Flames.” Those who were burned by the flames but survived find themselves transformed into mutants. Many mutants have turned into horrible monsters, and others have gained incredible powers. Some of these mutants have decided to use their strengths to oppress the weak.
The story follows a young mutant with cockroach-like powers named Fallout as she confronts two powerful mutants, Crossfire and Sasscrush. These two hooligans have been sacrificing innocent people from a nearby settlement to a well of Black Flame inside an abandoned cooling tower, which they have dubbed “The Black Torch.”
