Pagan Demons Come to Life in Irene Strychalski’s “FIENDISH” (Crowdfunding Spotlight)
Mainstream comic creator Irene Strychalski recently made the jump to crowdfunding with chapter one of FIENDISH, a fantasy story that combines elements of seinen manga and European fantasy comics.
Written and illustrated by Strychalski (Deadpool Family), FIENDISH is inspired by pagan traditions and culture. Here’s the official pitch taken from the FIENDISH Indiegogo campaign page:
As a child, Kazimir was the sole survivor of a mysterious demon attack on his hometown of Dorvo. Years after fleeing the massacre, Kaz thought he had left his nightmares behind- until the same monsters resurface and kill again.
Along with several companions who also wish revenge upon the beasts, Kaz sets out to revisit his past, uncover the truth behind Dorvo’s downfall, and hopefully put an end to the fiendish infestation.
The first chapter, Demons, is an action-filled 46-page introduction to this mystery tale; and this printed volume will include 8 pages of extra content.
Backers can get a copy of FIENDISH for $20. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up multiple posters, a demon standee, or a plaque. It is also worth noting that there is NO additional shipping charge for those in the United States. Keen!
Hard to beat, but the best part is that the FIENDISH project is already fully funded, so now all Strychalski has to worry about is the stretch goals and fulfillment.
