Jon Del Arroz’s “Deus Vult” is a Fantasy Crusade into Another World (Crowdfunding Highlight)
Last week, independent comic book creator Jon Del Arroz launched a crowdfunding campaign for Deus Vult, a 66-page fantasy graphic novel inspired by Conan the Barbarian and The Mighty Thor.
Written by Del Arroz and featuring illustrations by Jesse White and colors by Matt Crotts, Deus Vult has a striking throwback art style reminiscent of classic comics from the 1970s.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Deus Vult Indiegogo campaign page:
A crusade into another realm…
…leads to the deadliest of evils.
Sir Domingo, Spanish Knight and Holy Crusader, is blessed with a vision on his return from his triumphant conquest in the Holy Land. The Holy Grail appears in the sky, leading him on an adventure to another realm where demons and monstrosities lay waste to all of creation.
He discovers a strange race of people called the Kityin, who seem more kin to Earth’s cats than they do humanity. He alone can lead them to salvation and away from the tyrannical rule of The Demon King.
Should he fail, not only the Kityin but all the people of all the realms will be destroyed!
Backers can get a digital version of Deus Vult for $12, while physical copies start at $25. If you have more money to throw around, you can also pick up multiple copies of the book, variant covers, a hardcover edition, t-shirt, poster, and original artwork. There are also options to catch up on all of Del Arroz’s comics with either digital or physical bundles. It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
The best part? The Deus Vult project is already fully funded, so now Del Arroz can focus on fulfillment and stretch goals.
