Musterion’s “Ballad of the Celestials” Sings a Bloody Song of Revenge
But will it rhyme?
Over the weekend, Musterion Entertainment launched a crowdfunding campaign for Ballad of the Celestials issue 1, a 30-page fantasy comic book set in the antediluvian era (between the Fall of Man and the Flood of Noah).
Written by Kevin Murphy and featuring illustrations by Derek Clay, colors by Dijjo Lima and lettering by the prolific Eric Weathers, Ballad of the Celestials issue 1 is intended to be the first issue in a three-issue story arc.
Here is the official plot synopsis taken from the Ballad of the Celestials Indiegogo campaign page:
Before the ancient flood, continents are connected, mankind is divided, and the Celestials are perched in wait. Because of this, an evil force arises to conquer the Earth. As the evil grows it is within man’s reach to choke it from existence.
Meir, a battle-worn warrior trained by his kin to expose evil lurking in the shadows is hunting the newly risen abominations. During his quest as a soldier he gathered a group of trusted companions; Xun, Adelbern, Chiru, and Sabra.
Together they follow Meir headlong into a gauntlet of destruction that will disrupt the fate of humanity. How will they survive?
Backers can get a digital version of Ballad of the Celestials for $7, while physical copies (with a digital PDF included) start at $15. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up the following:
- Multiple copies of the book

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