Kenneth Rocafort’s Avant-Garde Fantasy “GROKEN” Now on Indiegogo
On Friday, renowned comic book artist Kenneth Rocafort launched a crowdfunding campaign for GROKEN, the first graphic novel published under his independent label: Mitografia.
Created, written and illustrated entirely by Rocafort, GROKEN boasts avant-garde visuals to tell a story that blends elements of both sci-fi and fantasy.
Here’s the full pitch taken from the GROKEN Indiegogo campaign page:
GROKEN is a graphic novel of more than forty-two full color pages in the genre of sci-fi and fantasy. Within this graphic novel conspiracies are explored through the travels of this peculiar character named GROKEN.
This Odyssey is set in a rotten era where myths were sadly forgotten and science corrupted the hopes of a good tomorrow. A singular theory makes the regiment shudder and the system now fears that the secret will be revealed and that the right to the crown will be claimed by the myth, a creature that bears the name of GROKEN.
Born as a beast and forge as a man.
GROKEN is a project by the creative mind of Kenneth Rocafort, who has worked on visual designs and illustrating stories together with writers such as: Paul Dini, Scott Lobdell, Jonathan Hickman, Al Elwin, Geoff Johns, Ron Marz, Mark Waid, Paul Cornell, Dan Abnett, Will Pfeifer, Andi Ewington, Nathan Edmondson, Charles Soule, Dave Wielgosz, C.B. Cebulski, Peter J. Tomasi and Dan DiDio… during his career in DC Comics, Marvel and Top Cow among other companies in the comic industry.
