Mike Murphy Launches High Fantasy Pulp Novel “Longshadow and the Prince of Echoes” on Indiegogo

Over the weekend, independent comic book creator and Chibi Comics founder Michael (Mike) Murphy launched a crowdfunding campaign for Longshadow and the Prince of Echoes, a full length, high-fantasy pulp novel.

Written by Murphy (Samurai and Dinosaurs, The Gods Fear Me), Longshadow is a sword and sorcery adventure featuring an ogre detective named – wait for it – Longshadow.

It should be stressed that this is not a comic book, but rather a 112-page prose novel that will feature several interior illustrations.

Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Longshadow Indiegogo campaign page:

Longshadow is an ogre detective-for-hire living and operating out of the small village of Coal On Brick. In the rowdy tavern known as Amber Glass, he takes on cases and often finds himself way over his head. Such is the case when a mysterious woman with mystic abilities calls on him to venture into the lands of Old Country. His task? To hunt down the deadly, vile being known only as the Prince Of Echoes. Accepting the job, Longshadow is catapulted into an adventure that will affect not only the rest of his life but the entire kingdom of Elos!

Backers can get a copy of Longshadow for $20. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following:

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
