Mankind’s Fate Lies in the Battle between Androids and Aliens in Mike Murphy’s “The Gods Fear Me”
On Wednesday, independent comic book writer and Chibi Comics founder Mike Murphy launched a crowdfunding campaign for The Gods Fear Me, a new post-apocalyptic sci-fi comic with a Lovecraftian flare. Written by Murphy (Samurai and Dinosaurs) and illustrated by Kristian Rossi (Trespasser), The Gods Fear Me is a 32-page comic intended as the first of a three-part miniseries.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the book’s Indiegogo campaign page:
The Ancient Ones brought the human race to near-extinction. Now, the android Kedzie fights to reclaim our world and protect a young boy who might be the key to our salvation.
THE GODS FEAR ME (the first of three planned installments) is 32 pages of sci-fi action and horror with Lovecraftian overtones, featuring stunning art by Kristian Rossi (Alterna’s Trespasser and Voidwalker)!
Backers can get a digital version The Gods Fear Me for $10, while physical copies start at $15. If you have more money to spend, you can get a trading card, post cards, a sticker, poster, original art, a prequel novella, and even the opportunity to have your likeness drawn into the final product. There’s also a “support the troops” tier, where backers receive two copies of The Gods Fear Me while three copies will be donated to U.S. military service members.
