Max DeVill’s Monster Adventure “Human Hunters” Now on Indiegogo
On Monday, independent comic book creator Max DeVill launched a crowdfunding campaign for Human Hunters issue 1, a 34-page fantasy book that combines the horror of the Universal Studios Monsters and the action/adventure of Indiana Jones.
Written by the duo responsible for Mary Machinegun Johnnie Reed and Max DeVill, and featuring illustrations by Mateus Duarte (Neo-Tokyo: The Truth is a Virus), inks by Fran Cord (Neo Tokyo: The Truth is a Virus), and colors by Adam Ramos and Carol Cord (Mary Machinegun), this first issue of Human Hunters sets the team off on a heist to recover a priceless vase stolen during World War II. There’s no word on whether the vase is actually an extraterrestrial alien weapon. We’ll keep you posted.
Here’s some official background on each of the Human Hunters taken from the Indiegogo campaign page:
Who are the Human Hunters?
“For centuries I have walked the earth, searching for others like myself. Like minded individuals, who are as weary as I of how depraved this world has become. Those who are tired of hiding from those mortals who wish to end our existence. Damning us for simply being different. We are not the monsters they claim we are… and in truth, the humans are truly the monsters. They are more capable of being depraved and lascivious than we could ever conceptualize. Now, it is our time to step away from the shadows, it is our time to show these ‘hunters’ that they are nothing more than prey.”
“For centuries I was nothing more than the sleeping princess of fairy tales. Then I was awakened by the dark prince into a brave new world. A world filled with wonder and science. I have whole heartedly embraced this new world and I am now a mistress of its technology. I will now use my skills to punish those individuals that deserve it.”
“They called us savages, hunting us down like animals – taking our lands and freedom. Now it is time for retribution and for them to see what a true animal is.”
“Since my rebirth from the waters of my Scottish homeland, I have lived many secret lives. Struggling to survive the dangers of this wretched world. Then he came into my life. The dark paladin of my dreams. I will be eternally grateful for all that he has done and will willfully join him in his hunt.”
