Empire Comics’ “Wraith of God” Scaring Up Big Bucks on Indiegogo

On Thursday, veteran comic book creator Aaron Lopresti launched his own independent comic book label, Empire Comics, with a crowdfunding campaign for Wraith of God, an all-new, 72-page graphic novel.

The campaign is already off to a great start, having raised more than $35 thousand at the time of this writing. With those numbers, that means the first stretch goal is already unlocked (it’s a bonus Empire Comics sticker).

But what about the book? Written and illustrated by Lopresti (Justice League, X-Men) and featuring colors by Brian Miller and Hi-Fi, Wraith of God is a supernatural western pitting man against monsters.

Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Wraith of God Indiegogo campaign page:

In the American west of 1883, the WRAITH is a mysterious hero with a dark past who is relentlessly driven to administer the wrath of God on the evil supernatural forces that contaminate the land. A master of illusionand disguise, the Wraith is aided by a former Salvation Army worker named Esther who frequently finds herself at odds with her mentor. It’s a race against time and death as together they try to stop a pack of werewolves from obtaining a mystical amulet that will make them invincible.

Backers can get a signed copy of Wraith of God for $25. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • A signed art print
  • Two different sketchbooks
  • Lopresti’s Garbage Man and Power Cubed books
  • A chance to have your likeness drawn into the final book

It’s also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $8 for those in the United States.

Congratulations to Lopresti, Miller, and everyone else on the Wraith of God team. You can check out some sample artwork below or visit the full Wraith of God Indiegogo campaign page here.
