Lovecraftian Fantasy Comic “Black Rhapsody” Now on Indiegogo

Over the weekend, independent comic book creator S. Sanchez (yep- just “S”) launched a crowdfunding campaign for Black Rhapsody part 1, a 35+ page, black-and-white, manga-sized comic book.

Written and created by Sanchez and featuring illustrations by Jan Apple, Black Rhapsody is a fantasy adventure that blends the drama of the music recording industry and Lovecraftian themes.

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

The music industry can be so cutthroat.

As religious worship falls out of favor among the younger generations, a new form of reverence takes its place. Many young people now turn to popstars and musicians for guidance and inspiration. Some even dream of pursuing fame themselves. Alethea is one of them. What started out as an opportunity to showcase her “talents” to a major record label, turns into a living nightmare for Alethea. Gifted with a mysterious power from a goddess of old, Alethea must find others like her in order to stop an ancient evil from conquering the world and the music charts.

Backers can get a digital version of Black Rhapsody for $10, while physical copies start at $15. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up the following:

  • Poster
  • Two art prints
  • An acrylic standee

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