“Peregrine: Wings of the Falcon” takes flight on Indiegogo
Late this week, a crowdfunding campaign for Graded Point Five‘s superhero comic Peregrine: Wings Of The Falcon launched on Indiegogo. Written by Scott McCullough and featuring illustrations by Douglas Franchan, colors by Farah Nurmaliza and lettering by Eric Weathers, Peregrine is a 48-page graphic novel full of “color action, emotion, and much more.” At the time of this writing, the project has already raised more than half of its $10k funding goal, so it looks to be well on its way to being successfully funded.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Peregrine Indiegogo campaign page:
Remember when Superhero comics used to be fun, interesting, with excellent stories and art?
We do, and we miss it.
That’s why we’ve decided to bring it back with the first of what we hope will become a mighty resurgence of excellent Superhero storytelling with quality art to match. As the opening salvo in the Reconstruction Universe, Peregrine: Wings of the Falcon promises to open the door for a brand new world of quality you came to expect but have been left yearning for.
In the wake of a catastrophic event that has left the planet in shambles and decimated the hero community, the survivors now work towards putting the world back together. As Earth still licks its wounds from its greatest threat to date, there are those who would take advantage of this situation for power and gain. New heroes must rise in order to give the people hope, and one girl has the power to be the beacon. Will she continue to walk away from her destiny?
Backers can get a copy of Peregrine for $25. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up extra copies of the book, a manga-inspired variant cover, art prints, and an original sketch card.
