An Immortal Deals With Cancel Culture in Splatto Comics’ “Is This You?”
On Thursday, independent comic book creator and Splatto Comics founder Richard C. Meyer launched a crowdfunding campaign for Is This You?, a 64-page, black and white graphic novel about “an Immortal dealing with Cancel Culture.”
The book is a “NarZack” project, meaning that it’s written by Richard (Ya Boi Zack) Meyer and illustrated by Per (Narwhal) Berg.
The project is already fully funded, having raised more than $10 thousand at the time of this writing.
Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Is This You? Indiegogo campaign page:
Discovered in a forest in Europe during World War 2, Alaster Belmont is recruited by the Allied Forces and used as a spy behind German lines.
After the war, Alaster is revealed to the world as the only living example of an Immortal. He enjoys an easy life of celebrity over the ensuing decades.
But with over 50,000 years of life, Alaster has a LOT of past. Too much.
Alaster has to deal with the threat to his legacy…and possibly his very existence!
Alaster is abandoned by almost everyone…except for his ancient tribe.
IS THIS YOU? is a story about inhumanity as viewed by those who witnessed Humanity being born…
And those who will still be there when Humanity DIES!
Backers can get the Is This You? graphic novel for $25. If you missed out on previous “NarZack” projects, you can get them all in a $60 bundle, or grab them individually as add-ons at checkout. It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
