Historical Horror Comic “War Party” Now on Indiegogo (Festival of Dread Special)
It’s Pocahontas meets Altered Beast in comic book form! Sorta…
Earlier this week, independent comic book creator Justin Murphy launched a crowdfunding campaign for War Party, a 6-issue, 140-page fantasy adventure miniseries that blends supernatural horror and Colonial American history.
You can check out the promotional trailer below (complete with The Last if the Mohicans musical score), followed by the official breakdown of the book taken from the War Party Indiegogo campaign page:
After their families are killed during the French & Indian War, and the surviving child is captured, a group of colonial fighters organize a rescue when they receive shape-shifting powers from an ancient tribe.
Wolf, bear, eagle, jaguar & gator all team up in an unlikely alliance against the French, the British and their native allies.
‘War Party’ is a fantasy-adventure tale set in a brutal historical period.
Backers can get the complete 6-issue set (signed by Murphy) for $25. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up a poster, a variant cover by Michael Golden (Dr. Strange, G.I. Joe), or original artwork (by either Murphy or Golden).
